Obituary of Dr. Otis Moseley
Dr. Otis O. Moseley (Doc), age 84 of Osage Beach, Missouri, passed away Saturday, May 20, 2017, at Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach, Missouri.
Otis was born in Lakeside, Missouri, October 15, 1932, in a small home under the UE Village Water Tower on the hill above Bagnell Dam. He was the first child of Okle and Olie “Ozell” (Crum) Moseley.
Otis was a unique individual in that he never knew a stranger. He took care of his patients as if they were a member of his own family. Most in fact could have been, as Dr. Moseley considered his whole community to be a part of his family. It was not uncommon to see Otis giving medical advice at the grocery store, gas station or a restaurant. He enjoyed photography and spending quality time with his family and his many friends located at numerous points around the country. Other than his Children, Otis considered his largest accomplishment to be the involvement he had in bringing what is now Lake Regional Hospital to the Lake of the Ozarks. He used to say; “I have delivered hundreds of babies in this community but that Hospital was by far the largest of them all”!
Otis is survived by his first wife, Lois and their three children Randy, Brad and Scott, his daughter Julie from his second wife Anne; his sister Linda (Moseley) Birkhead; 8 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his wife Dixie, his parents Okle and Ozell Moseley his daughter Julie’s Mother Anne, and two Brothers Harley and Ron.
