William Joseph Mosier Obituary

William Joseph Mosier, known to most as Bill and to some as Husband, Dad, and Papa, died on May 12, 2024.


He was born on October 13, 1939 in Louisville, KY. and was the son of the late William Taylor Mosier and Lorena Boesser Mosier. He was also preceded in death by his brothers- William Jerome and William Rudolph, sister-in-love, Emma Jean Mosier, brother-in-love Jim Stierle.


Bill is survived by his best friend, wife and partner of over 60 years, Penny Mosier; 3 children- William “Joey” (Donna) Mosier; Mark (Michelle) Mosier, Beth (Greg Jones) Mosier; 7 beloved and spoiled grandchildren- Hannah Mosier, Jackson Silence, Max Mosier, Kori Silence, Marshall Mosier and Will Mosier and Cooper Silence; his sister, Lorena Stierle and sisters-in-love JoAnn Mosier and Sue Craig and brother-in-love Tom Rice, numerous nieces and nephews, countless friends and strangers who became friends quickly.


Bill served his country in the Army specifically in the band, and his community as a Police Officer for the City of Louisville for 23 years. During that time, he held the roles of Patrol Officer, Motorcycle Officer, and later becoming Detective. He helped facilitate the Pilot program for Safety Patrol and worked in the Photography Lab assisting in investigations. He won Police Officer of the Year in 1976, and was a member of the Fraternal Order of Police and the Louisville Police Officers Association. Later, he loved working at TriMarc which gave him the ability to continue in keeping the community safe.


Outside of his passion for his work, he was a member of the HOA Board for both Countryside Subdivision in Oldham County and later Seneca Gardens where he also held the position of Civil Engineer.

Throughout Bill’s life, he found ways to share his faith at Westport Road Baptist Church and currently, Highland Baptist Church where he was baptized as a young adult. He helped lead the RA’s, served as a Deacon in both churches, and supported his church family through his lifelong dedication.


Alongside his faith and community, Bill’s family was of the highest priority and he always wanted his family to feel protected, nurtured and loved. He loved his wife, Penny, with all his heart and soul. The depth of their love and affection was admired by those around them. Their 3 children knew nothing but love and his 7 grandchildren all knew if they stood at the cookie counter at WW Cousins long enough, Papa would indulge because he thought they hung the moon.


Bill was an incredible man who lived an incredible life filled with incredible love. He loved well and will always be well loved. We will miss you, Honey, Dad, Papa…always and in all ways…
