Dennis Howard Moser was born on April 5, 1956, in Aberdeen, SD to Howard and Beverly (Miller) Moser.
He grew up and attended school in Aberdeen. After high school, Dennis had various jobs but his path always lead back to the family business, Howard’s Service. He was involved with the family business at a young age and all throughout his life. Everybody knew Dennis.
Howard’s Service was deeply involved in the dirt track racing community. His love for racing brought a side job of selling race car parts along with Mastersbilt and GRT racing chassis.
The involvement of his parent’s business also led him to purchase Parcel Erickson which he ran with his own family. Dennis ran both businesses until the time of his death.
He was united in marriage to Cindy Piatz on August 9, 1980, and together they had two children, Brandon Moser and Amanda Moser.
Dennis had racing in his blood, inspired by his father, which led him to a successful career in the famous #63 race car. He held many track championships around the state. He shared his knowledge with anyone that wanted to learn. He inspired many racers in his lifetime to fulfill their dreams. Many looked up to him. He was especially proud to inspire his own son, Brandon, in his own race car for several years. Alongside Brandon, was his daughter Amanda who was just as deep into racing as the rest of the family. His love for racing was deep and lifelong.
Dennis also loved the towing business and the people he met along the way. He loved camping and fishing with his family. He loved Mopar and Coors Light. He had a great love for music, (you knew it was something he liked when he “drummed” the beat of a song for you or sent you a picture of a song on his radio). He loved being a flagman, running the wreckers and various positions at the Brown County Speedway, and his cat Puddy. He loved to share stories, and play jokes on people, all while giggling like a little kid.
But his greatest love was family. He would do anything for them. He especially loved spending time with his grandchildren, teaching a little something along the way.
Grateful to have shared Dennis’s life is his wife, Cindy; his children Brandon (Stacey) Moser and Amanda (Billy Hein) Moser; four grandchildren: Mikayla, Gabby, Chase, and Brody; two sisters Donna Goodman and Doris (Mark) Ketterling all of Aberdeen. sister-in-law Linda(Roger) Maisch. Also grateful to have shared his life were many nieces and nephews.
He was proceeded in death by his parents, Howard and Beverly Moser; his brother-in-law Dave Goodman; and his aunt and uncle Bud & Connie Kopecky, with whom he shared a special lifelong bond.
His smile, his big heart, his helping hands, and his big laugh will be missed forever.
His family requests guests to wear casual attire, jeans, a t-shirt, and bonus points for a racing shirt.
