Mason Moback

Oct. 26, 1974 – Sept. 6, 2023

With deep reverence, we mark the passing of Mason Edward Moback, known fondly as Mase, who left us on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Mason, with his infectious humor and larger-than-life presence, was born in Webb City on Oct. 26, 1974. His spirit was as vast as the open plains he so dearly loved, embodying the essence of a true cowboy. Mason’s loyalty was as sturdy as the structures he crafted in his work as a carpenter – an artisan who took pride in his trade. His love for his family was his cornerstone, a testament to his generous and loving nature. Mason’s laughter was a gift he readily bestowed upon others, a reflection of his innate ability to bring joy to any room he entered.

Mason’s vivacious spirit was mirrored in his hobbies. He had a deep affection for horses and harbored dreams of becoming a bull rider. He was an avid bow hunter and fisherman who delighted in the thrill of the catch. His love of pool was a testament to his competitive spirit and his enduring humor. He was a jokester who never missed an opportunity for levity. A verse from Proverbs 17:22, “A cheerful heart is good medicine,” encapsulates Mason’s approach to life perfectly. He was the embodiment of this verse, spreading good cheer and laughter wherever he went.

Mason is survived by his daughters, Kimberly Webster, Nicole Workman, and Kathleen Heisserer; his mother, Jean Vickers, and stepfather, Mike Vickers; his father, Lee Moback; and stepmother, Rhonda Moback; sisters, Misty Pafu, Kendra Merriman, and Kacey Schmidt; brother, Justin Moback; five adoring grandchildren; his beloved grandmother, Mary Vinyard; and numerous nieces and nephews who all cherished him deeply. Mason was preceded in death by his grandparents, Fred Vinyard, Carl Moback, and Grace Moback.

Visitation and the funeral service were held Monday, Sept. 11, 2023, at Simpson Funeral Home. Burial was in Ozark Memorial Park Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
