Michael Alan Moser

October 16, 1963 — March 23, 2024

Michael Alan Moser, 60, of Key West, Florida, passed away on March 23, 2024 after a cardiac event.

He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 16, 1963 to William and JoAnn Moser. He is survived by his husband, Thomas Masat, in Key West and his sister, Lyndia Gray, and brothers Gary and Tom in Salt Lake City. He will be missed by his family and friends.

Mike spent over three decades as an IT manager at the National Parks Conservancy in San Francisco. In 2008, Mike married Thomas in San Francisco. Their wedding theme was "Pure Imagination," inspired by Dr. Seuss and Willie Wonka.

"Make a wish

Count to three

Come with me and you'll be

In a world of pure imagination."

With this wish in mind, Mike and Thomas created a life filled with dogs, adventures, and magic. Mike was smart, witty, and loving. In 2020, Mike and family moved to Key West where he retired. He was a gifted writer and poet, active volunteer, occasional Buddhist, and ambivalent yoga practitioner. His secret power was his quiet charm and wicked humor. He was also the designated wrestler for their dog, Henry.

He was, and is, the love of Thomas' life.

A celebration of life will take place in Key West in the fall. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to recovery club Anchors Aweigh, 404 Virginia Street, Key West, Florida, 33040.
