Douglas Karl Mosier, son, brother, uncle and friend to so many, passed from this life on May 4, 2024, leaving behind scores of family, friends and a lifetime of memories.

A Celebration of Doug’s life for his family and friends will be held Tuesday, May 14 at The Robson Performing Arts Center in Claremore, Oklahoma at 6:00 P.M.

Doug was born in Manhattan Kansas on August 5, 1959, to Richard H. and Mary Taylor Mosier. Doug attended school in Colby, Kansas and Claremore, Oklahoma.  He graduated from Claremore High School in the Class of 1978.  He continued his education at Claremore Junior College, now Rogers State University, receiving two Associate of Arts Degrees in Business Administration and Horse and Ranch Management.

Doug was a long-time member of First Presbyterian Church in Claremore.  He served many years as Sunday School Superintendent.

Doug lived his life concentrating on four very important things:
His family, his friends, the Claremore Zebras and the Rogers State Hillcats.

Doug loved and was loved by his family.  He is survived by his parents, Richard H and Mary Mosier, his siblings and their spouses, Jerrilee Mosier-Coombs, Greg Mosier, Rick Mosier (Teresa) and Roger Mosier (Vicki).  He also leaves his nieces and nephews, Meredith (Todd Newcomb), Natalie (John Jarrad), Grant (Maria), Madison (Dylan Foxworth), Decker (Lexi), Chas, Caroline and Mary Bess, his grandnephew, Jonah Jarrad and a multitude of aunts, uncles and cousins.  He was preceded in death by his Grandparents and brother-in-law Russell Coombs.

Doug’s greatest gift was his innate ability to make and keep lifelong friends.  Every new person he met was a friend he just didn’t know yet.  People were the most important thing in his life, and he went about collecting a large and diverse group of friends of all ages.  Friendship was easy for him, and he was very good at it.  

He was the most dedicated and enthusiastic supporter of Claremore Zebra Athletics.  During his high school days, he was named Mr. Spirit for his support of the school and teams.  He cheered and befriended multiple generations of athletes during his over 50 years as the Zebras #1 fan.  He stayed in contact as they graduated, married, and raised the next generation of friends for Doug to love and support.  He was inducted into the Claremore High School Athletics Hall of Fame for his dedication and commitment to the Zebras.

Doug grew up on College Hill in Claremore and his support for the Rogers State University Hillcats naturally followed.  The administration, staff, coaches and players all found themselves joining his circle of friends.  He could often be found on campus checking in with friends or at games for whatever sport was in season.

Thousands of people’s lives were made better by their relationship with Doug. 
Doug fought the good fight, he ran the race, he circled the bases and is now safe at home.  To God be the glory!
