Selig Moss; Lawyer and Korean War Veteran

Selig Moss, a Korean War veteran and 17-year resident of Ventura County, died Wednesday at St. John's Regional Medical Center in Oxnard. He was 66.

Born March 22, 1931, in Laurelton, N.Y., Moss moved to Encino in 1948.

He was a Navy pilot during the Korean War and was involved in atomic bomb testing. He was a lieutenant when he was honorably discharged in 1959.

He moved to Van Nuys in 1960 and to Camarillo in 1980.

A lawyer, Moss was an active member of the Masonic Lodge of Canoga Park and the California Bar Assn.

"I remember him most for his caring ways," said Billie, his wife of 19 years. "He was always thinking about other people, especially the children."

Besides Billie, of Camarillo, Moss is survived by three daughters, Susan Caldwell of North Hills, Karen Moss of Long Beach and Billie Biagi of Eugene, Ore.; two sons, Robin Hayes and Bob Langdon of Vienna, W.Va.; and eight grandchildren.

Visitation is from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Pierce Brothers Griffin Mortuary in Camarillo.

A graveside service will begin at 11 a.m. Monday at the Ivy Lawn Memorial Park in Ventura.

Donations can be made to the American Heart Assn. or the American Diabetes Assn.
