Maurice Lindsey "Moke" Musser

March 24, 1930 — July 2, 2023

Fishers, IN

Maurice “Moke” Lindsey Musser, 93, of Fishers, Indiana, died Sunday, July 2, at his daughter’s home in Indianapolis.

Moke was born March 24, 1930, in Marion, Indiana, to the late Victor and Helen (Masterson) Musser. He was the youngest of four brothers, all of whom preceded him in death: William (Pat) Musser of South Bend, David (Betty) Musser of Marion, Indiana, and Richard (Eleanor) Musser of Indianapolis, Indiana.

He graduated from Marion High School in 1949 and attended the Kansas State Teachers College and Ball State University. Moke served in the Air Force during the Korean War and was stationed in upstate New York.

He married Nancy (Tompkins) in 1956 and they had five children: Maureen (Jay) Vaught of Seattle, Washington; Victor Musser; Julie (Scott) Gordon of Indianapolis; Maurice “Morris” (Christy) Musser of Fishers; and John (Lee) Musser of Fishers. He also had 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his eldest son, Victor, and his first grandchild, Austin.

Nancy died in February 2016 from Alzheimer’s disease-related illness.

Moke retired in 1995 from Bell Fibre Products Corporation, where he had worked as a sales representative since 1968. Prior to his successful career in the corrugated packaging business, he was a switchboard operator for Huber Hunt and Nichols, a car salesman for Ford Motor Company, and the owner of The Stag, a tavern for men only.

He was an avid golfer who, at 92 years of age, continued to play as often as the weather allowed. Moke also enjoyed playing cards, betting on the horses, and watching Westerns. But his favorite activity was being with friends and family laughing and reminiscing. He touched many lives. His absence from ours will be sorely felt.

Donations can be made in his memory to the Alzheimer’s Association, because everyone should have a memory as good as Moke’s.

Funeral services will be held Friday, July 14, at noon at Flanner Buchanan-Oaklawn Memorial Gardens (Conner Suite), 9700 Allisonville Road, Indianapolis, with calling beginning there at 10 am.
