God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be
So He wrapped his arms around you, and whispered, "Come to Me".
With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away,
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, a precious soul at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes His best.

William "Bill" Mosley was born on November 15, 1953, in Pueblo, Colorado and started a new journey in Baker, Louisiana in 1975. He was the owner and founder of Baker Glass Works since May of 1979, President of the Glass Association in the early 1990's, former President of the Baker Chamber in 1995, and coached Baker Little League for many years. Bill ended his journey on February 24, 2018, at the age of 64.

The visitation will be at Baker Funeral Home, 6401 Groom Road, Baker, Louisiana, on Sunday, February 25, 2018, from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. The visitation will continue on Monday, February, 26, 2018, at Miracle Place Church, 2080 Main St, Baker, Louisiana, from 10:00 a.m. until services at 2:00 p.m. conducted by Reverend Joshua Crutchfield and Reverend Ricky Sinclair.

Bill leaves behind to cherish his memory, a devoted wife of 29 years, Janet Abbott Mosley; daughter, Megan Nicole Mosley; and son, William Hunter Mosley all of Baker, LA. He is survived by sisters, Kathryn Young (Randall) of Tulsa, OK and Lisa Evans (Bill) of Gladewater, TX; a brother, John Mosley of Baton Rouge, LA; and son, from his previous marriage, Mitch Mosley of Baton Rouge, LA.; an adored mother-in-law, Jeanette Abbott Tabler (Charles) of Brusly, LA.; special nieces and nephews; and great-niece, Tori Abbott of Prairieville, LA.

Bill loved antique cars, especially his 1940 Chevy Coupe, watching LSU sports, tailgating, camping, and he enjoyed coaching Hunter and Megan through baseball.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Sherelle Beardon and Barbara Latimore, with St. Joseph Hospice, and gratitude to Dr. Gerald Calegan, from the Neuro Medical Center, and Michelle Oreman and Jessica Maulden Johnson for the love and care given to Bill. A special thanks to Connie Browning and Corinne Cagle for their love and support throughout his journey.

    Janet and family, I can not begin to imagine how you must feel today. However, I know Bill held on long enough to show you all how to be strong in his absence.

Love you very much, { your friend since first grade } Tina Nunnery Mancuso
