Keith Moss, talented musician

April 14, 2021

Keith Moss of Newark, 55, passed away peacefully at home Monday, April 12, 2021.  Keith was born April 30, 1965, in Morgantown, W.Va., to the late Joe Francis Moss and Jean Elizabeth (Marcrum) Moss.

Keith’s passion was music.  He was a respected and gifted guitar player, and a talented engineer and producer at Target Studios in Newark.  Keith played with many well-known area bands, including This Year’s Girl, Marc Moss and the Art Farm, the Porch Chops, and most recently, Wrecking Ball.  He also served as a director and vice president at IMS Technology Services, and most recently as territory sales manager for Christie Digital Systems. He had a remarkable work ethic which was evidenced by his professional success. Keith enjoyed renovating his 150-year-old farm property, growing vegetables in his garden and traveling with his family.  He was a self-professed foodie and loved spending weekends crafting meals for family and friends.  Keith’s proudest and most fulfilling accomplishment were his three children. He was a devoted dad who took a very active role in all their interests and activities. He always made people smile, and was a loyal friend and beloved family member.
 Keith is survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Laura (Ludwig) Moss; children: Nolan Moss, Ian Moss and Amelia Moss; brothers: Marc Moss (Nancy Austin) and Eric Moss (Donna Moss); aunt, Betty Moss; former sister-in-law, Lynn Moss; stepmother, Daphne Moss; and his beloved nieces, nephews and cousins.
