With heavy hearts, LHS is sad to have lost Dave Moss Sr. May 11, 2019. Dave Moss Sr. was a resident of Lakeside since around 1967.
In memory of Dave, we rang the bell five times - paused - rang one time - paused and rang one more time during his son Dave Moss Jr’s Sherriff presentation on Saturday May 18, 2019. The bell echoed throughout Lakeside for Dave Sr.
The Moss family is invited to come and ring the old church bell every year in his honor on May 11th. Dave Moss Sr. was in the newspaper as runner up in the "Horse around in Lakeside" bumper sticker contest back in November 1976. Next time you see a Horse around in Lakeside bumper sticker, think of him knowing he was involved in our little town, his clever second place slogan was “Lakeside Is The Countryside”. He was always proud of being involved in the community.
We are also proud of Dave Moss Jr's accomplishments in the county. As a boy, Dave grew up going to our schools in the Lakeside, he eventually went on to become the Commander in the San Diego Sheriff's department.
Dave Jr's old friend Rob Harding and current LHS VP spoke in place of Dave Jr. and kept everything going to honor the Moss family, history and community involvement, filling the guest speaker spot on the history of the SD Sheriff's department. It was nice to have Lieutenant Fran Passalacqua from the Lakeside substation representing Commander Dave Moss for the sheriff's department. Thank you, Lieutenant Passalacqua. It was a somber day but we carried on like Dave Jr. would have wanted us too. Dave Moss Sr's memorial will be July 3rd at 1130 AM at the Miramar National Cemetery. We cannot give the Moss family enough prayers as their hearts are very heavy at this time. "Hoping to comfort them in some way" Is a quote from Rob Harding during the ringing of the bell when we held a moment of silence in honor Daves dad.
RIP Dave Moss Sr.
