Robert Channing Moose

Robert Channing Moose

At the age of seventeen, Robert Channing Moose left this temporary home to reside in Heaven on the night of November 22, 2020 in Hickory, North Carolina.

Robert was born into a military family, and became a stellar Army JROTC cadet at Hickory High School, where he led others by honorable example, was a friend to those who needed one, and stood firm against bullying and evil. Hard-working and ever-serving, he is a tender-hearted son, a thoughtful brother, a courteous student, and a loyal friend.

Robert is the son of Channing and Julie Moose and brother to Andrew and Rebekah Moose. He is succeeded by a host of loving family members, friends, and fellow students. Robert’s life shall always be a testament to the bold and compassionate character of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    I heard about this tragedy. From what I know, he was a wonderful person inside and out. I can’t stand the thought of losing a brother, child, or friend. There is no way I can express the impact of this loss. I’m sure the family has received too many condolences, so I’d rather share my grief for the life that was ended prematurely. I couldn’t wish this sort of event on my worst enemy. I send love and prayers to the way of the family.

    Channing and Julie I was so sorry to hear of Robert’s passing. Loosing a child is something no parent wants to deal with but often time God has other plans. It is comforting to know he is in heaven and one day you will see him again. God bless your family. Carole Muirhead

    Words are not adequate to express my heartfelt condolences. May God grant you peace and strength at this time. Robert was a son to be proud of and will be missed by many.
