Harry “MO” William Mosher, a resident of Anderson, California, died on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at his home after a long battle with emphysema (COPD).

Harry was born in San Francisco, California on August 16, 1934. Harry never married and seemed very happy just being “MO.”

He moved to Dunsmuir, Siskiyou County, with his parents that same year; and later moved to McCloud where he attended local schools, graduating from McCloud High School in 1954. MO attended and graduated from Chico State College and entered the Army.

Following his duties in the Army, he moved to the Bay Area in California where he worked as an accountant and comptroller until he retired at the age of 45 and moved to Mount Shasta.

He later suffered from a life-threatening surgery and moved to Anderson to become a companion and helper to his mother Elsa Perry.

MO was a member of the McCloud River Gang – a group of friends from McCloud who met yearly for camp-outs on the McCloud River and other locations.

MO’s major interests were accounting and investing; and his friends. As a young man he enjoyed skiing on the mountain and being with his friends. He loved crossword puzzles and playing daily Scrabble with his mom. He was a proud, quiet and private old soul.

Harry is survived by his mother, Elsa Perry; sister, Beverly Stalder of Anderson; and half-sister, Wendy Rose of Concord, California. He has three nephews, Mark Baiza, Richard Magee and Robert Magee; along with extended family and friends.

A Celebration of Life for MO will be held on Sunday, February 19 at 2 p.m. at the Fairway Oaks Clubhouse, 20350 Hole In One Drive, in Anderson. All friends and family are welcome.
