Carl J. Moser, born in Mandan, ND, on April 29, 1959, died unexpectedly in his Fargo, ND, home on June 14, 2024, at the age of 65. He completed his education at St. Joseph’s Elementary School (Mandan), Mandan High School, University of Mary School of Respiratory Care (Bismarck), and Rush University (Chicago), where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Perfusion Technology, Magna Cum Laude. He worked as a perfusionist for many years in Jacksonville, FL, before moving to Fargo, ND, in 2023, where he continued his career.

Carl was an avid body-builder throughout his early life, eventually achieving the status of ‘Mr. North Dakota’. Working out, whether at the gym lifting weights or riding his bicycle outdoors, was most fulfilling to him. In his early years he joined a softball team for which he was sometimes a bit too competitive. He cherished his health and nutrition, inspiring his children to do the same. Carl also deeply loved all animals, especially dogs. He treasured the outdoors and nature, particularly the ocean, where he found the most peace. Carl was passionate about sharing his love for the ocean by exploring beaches across Florida with his children. He also loved artwork, bright colors, trance music, sneakers, pizza (on cheat days), watching various sports on ESPN, and God. One of his hobbies was collecting DC superhero action figures and memorabilia.The pride of his life, however, was his three children, to whom he was a devoted and loving father. He would have become a grandfather to his first grandchild in December 2024. His children describe him as a hardworking, determined, honorable man and a loving father. They will always consider him to be their superhero. He will be deeply missed.

Carl is survived by his three children, Savannah Moser (Phoenix), Sophia Moser (Phoenix), and Cruise Moser (Grand Forks), his brother, Paul Moser (Chicago), his nephew, Kye Silbernagel (Mandan), and his nieces Anna Moser Walsh and Laura Moser Beder (both of Chicago). He was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth J. Moser and Helen J. Moser (both of Mandan), and his sister, Laura Moser Silbernagel (Mandan).

  6. I worked with Carl for 2 years at Stewart’s Dairy Farm while in High School. Lost track of him while I was in the service. He was a kind person and he did have a bit of a mischievous side. I enjoyed hanging out with him as he spent a lot of time working on the 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A.

  7. I don’t think this will ever feel real. You were my best friend, role model, biggest supporter, and so much more. You meant the world to me and always will. I looked up to you in so many ways and I hope to make you proud. You shaped me into the person I am today and I will forever cherish the 22 years I had with you. I feel so incredibly grateful to have had you as my dad. The most hard-working, determined, intelligent, and honorable man. And the most loving father. Thank you for everything dad. Every memory. Every laugh. Every lesson. And most importantly thank you for being the best dad I could have ever asked for. The emptiness i feel without you here is indescribable. A piece of my heart will forever be missing without you here. You will forever be my superhero dad. And I will forever be your little girl. I will love and miss you until the end of time.
