    Since this place feels like family, I am sharing my dad’s obituary.

    Sven Mossberg died early in the morning on Saturday Feb 8, after 90 good years and a few really bad months.

    The loss is difficult, but my sister Aggie and I also have a great sense of relief for him. He had a great run…and in 1982 he let me build my TD in his one car garage. I promised six months, I took nine months. Thanks dad!

    Dude, sounds like you won the dad lottery! And 90 years! And with a son like you! He did pretty well too, didn’t he?

    Sorry for your loss. All the best to you and your family. Thanks, always, for the great example you set.

    Sorry for your loss Paul.  



    Paul, I never met Aggie, but believing in the old parable about apples and trees, I know that you and your sister will proudly carry the Mossberg family colors.  Sounds like your dad led a full life.  Sorry to hear of your loss, …..chin up, you have much to be grateful for.



    Sorry for your loss Paul. And your dad is probably not worried about the couple of extra months it took you to build your TD…he’s enjoying riding in it with you.

    Sorry to hear Paul – I think most of us know what it is like to lose a Dad – It is a great loss but time will heal and all the great memories will still be with you – hold them close. Thinking of you.

    Sorry for your loss.

    It sounds like he was one of the good guys. The good memories will remain for you to remember him.

    Paul, sorry to her about your dad. Another good brother gone to his celestial reward. Sounds like he led a very full life and was the kind of role model that we would all like to  see in this frail world.

    May the acacia bloom at his grave and may he rest in eternal bliss.

    As a Merchant Mariner, he deserves calm seas and a steady wind in his sails. Here’s hoping he has that now. My best to you and your family.

    Thank you all!


    Bill – Yup! I didn’t know Mike’s dad, but I’ve know Mike and Scott for years. Not sure who else here will appreciate this, but at Dad’s request (more like directive!), I did his Masonic funeral service myself. Twice. Once in NJ, once in NY. Not as easy task!

    You and your family have my condolences.  He sounds like a wonderful man and he certainly helped raise a good son.  I lost my father ten years ago and my mother over 30 years ago.  My heart and thoughts go out to you and your sister, and all of your family.
