LANCASTER - Longtime community activist and public servant Julian "Moose" Moss Sr., 75, of North Paulding Street, died Tuesday at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center.
A businessman, Moss served on the board of directors at First Southern National Bank for 15 years and was a partner at Lancaster Loan Co. and Lancaster Insurance Agency.
People of Garrard County knew him for his dedication to the county.
Moss had formerly been the Garrard County coroner, president of the Jaycees, was active in county Republican politics and instrumental in establishing the Lancaster-Garrard County Recreation Park.
A field in the park was named in his honor.
"It's almost old-fashioned now to apply the terms honesty, integrity, and dedication to a public servant," said life-long friend Barry Peel. "Julian Moss was old-fashioned."
