Edward Lewis Moss

Edward Lewis Moss May 6, 1945-Feb. 9, 2019 In the early 4'oclock hour of February 9, angels stepped out of Heaven to escort and welcome Edward Lewis Moss to his new home. Known to many, mostly as "Lewis", but also "Hollywood", "Paps", "Dad", "Louie", brother and friend, he was a lover of the outdoors. Whether bear hunting, hog hunting, fishing, running his dogs, operating his backhoe or just driving along appreciating God's creations, Lewis was usually found outside. Son of the late Herstel and Louise (Holland) Moss, Lewis was a native of Jackson County. He owned a successful backhoe business, raised a beautiful family, maintained many friendships and lived life with a smile and a zest for storytelling. Also adding to his many characteristics, Lewis had a genuine love for his daughters, brothers, sisters, friends, his girlfriend, and especially his grandchildren. Although Lewis was a resident of North Carolina, his friends, who are considered "family" can also be found in Wisconsin, Virginia, South Carolina and Florida. He spent a lot of time impacting the lives of many with his laugh, stories, enthusiasm, joy and kindness. Due to the way Lewis lived and loved so largely, he will be terribly missed by many. Until the day we reunite in heaven, we will continue to keep his memories close to our hearts, because that's where he always kept us. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pine Creek Baptist Church at PO Box 1153, Cashiers, NC. 28717. A Memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 5:30 pm at Appalachian Funeral Services in Sylva, NC., with Rev. Ralph Campbell and Rev. Aaron Langston officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home prior to the service from 3:00 pm until 5:30 pm.

Ole Lewie to me and my husband but Paps to my boys! He was a good man! No doubt in my mind where he is today. He loved our family like his own. We loved him back! Whether he was fishing with my Noah or taking my Jacob on a bear hunt, he treated them the same. Great talks on the porch and wonderful tales that were told. We all cherish those memories and will for the rest of our lives. He was not only a good man but a great father, father-in-law, Uncle, Friend, Papaw, Boyfriend, and Husband. We love you Lewie/Paps. Rest easy. Your journey watching over us has just began. You will never be forgotten!
