Randolph (Randy) Charles Mosness, a proud veteran of the United States Navy, passed away on April 16, 2024 at the age of 79.


Randy, the oldest son of Rudolph and Alice Mosness was born March 25, 1945 in Livingston, Montana. Growing up in Big Timber, Montana, he attended Big Timber Elementary and graduated from Sweet Grass County High School (Class of 1963).

Randy enlisted in the Navy after graduation. September 23, 1963 he left Big Timber for the Navy’s basic military training, graduating December 12, 1963 at the age of 18. During his career with the Navy, Randy earned the following medals, awards, and ribbons: Air Medal, Navy Commendation Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Air Force Outstanding Unit Award, the National Defense Service Medal, Fourth Good Conduct Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Battle “E” Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Advanced Electronic Repair Ribbon, and several others. He completed a long and distinguished career, attaining and retiring with the rank of E8—Senior Chief.


After retiring from the Navy, Randy and his wife built a home in Emigrant, MT. To avoid the snow and harsh winter weather, they invested in an RV and spent the winter months in Arizona, returning to Emigrant with the warmer weather. In the spring and summer he enjoyed riding and tinkering on motorcycles. He also loved to dance. He and Janice were on the dance floor whenever possible.


Randy was preceded in death by his parents, Rudy and Alice Mosness; his first wife, Judy Plaggemeyer; and most recently, his second wife, Janice Moor Mosness, step daughter, Lori Moor.
