David Joe Mosher was a Firefighter/Paramedic for Chillicothe Fire Department in Chillicothe, MO. On January 3, 1994, at the age of 35, David was killed while transporting a patient to the hospital. The accident that claimed the life of David, his partner, and the patient, was caused by a semi that crossed the center line and struck the ambulance. At the time of his death, David was survived by his Wife, Kristen Mosher; 6 year old Daughter, Sarah Mosher; Mother, Betty Mosher; and Sister, Dana Mosher.
Everyone that knew David would agree that he always had a passion for helping and teaching others. David became a Paramedic in 1978 and began working for Grundy County Ambulance in Trenton, MO. During his life, David also taught many EMT classes and was involved in any way he could be in the medical and firefighter field. In 1981, he completed Basic training and was a Firefighter in the Air National Guard. Also in 1981, David was hired as a Firefighter/Paramedic for Chillicothe Fire where he continued his career until his death.
In his free time, David loved spending time with his family. He was married on May 28th, 1983 to Kristen and they welcomed their only child, Sarah, on May 1st, 1987. While at home, David also had a passion for reading and working with computers. He spent many hours learning about different trades and was also a locksmith for his local community.
As I write this biography, 20 years after his death, my dad would be so proud of his community, friends, and firefighter family for taking care of all of those he loved. As his daughter, I would like to thank the NFFF, Chillicothe Fire, and numerous other organizations for remembering my hero, my Daddy.
