MSG Robert Mosteller, 83, passed away peacefully on January 7, 2024 in his home surrounded by family in Fayetteville, NC. Robert was born on June 20, 1940 to Sylvester and Gladys Mosteller in McAdenville, NC.
When Robert was just 19 years of age, he decided to join the United States Air Force. After completing his basic training at Lakeland AFB, in San Antonio, Texas, Robert went on to be stationed at Pope AFB, North Carolina; Myrtle Beach AFB, South Carolina; Udorn Royal Thai AFB, Thailand; Hancock Field, New York; HQ AF Accounting & Finance Center, Denver, Colorado; and McGuire AFB in New Jersey. Robert would go on to serve in the Vietnam War and become a decorated veteran. Robert continued serving in the United States Air Force for 23 years. Robert spent time abroad in Udorn, Thailand. During his time in Udorn, he met and fell for Charoun Hengsingto, who he married in 1973.
One of the kindest souls on this planet, Robert was a gentle, giving man who worked tirelessly to ensure that his family had everything they needed. He faced every challenge in life with admirable strength and courage. Early in life, Robert learned the importance of hard work and instilled that same work ethic in his children. He was always there for them, whether they needed help with homework or just a shoulder to cry on. He taught the importance of family, hard work and doing what is right. Robert was a true role model who will always be looked up to. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Robert is preceded in death by his parents, Sylvester and Gladys Mosteller; sisters, Linda Wallace and Nancy Blacock; brother, Tommy Mosteller; and son, Robert William Mosteller.
He is survived by his loving wife, Charoun Mosteller; sons, Timothy Mosteller and Jeffrey Mosteller; daughter, Sandra Bolding; sisters, Betty Huffsteller, Barbara Dellinger, Carolyn Hilderbrand, and Kathy Sronce; brother, Johnny Mosteller; and eight grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren.
Father, you are now at peace but you will live on forever in our hearts. We love you so much.
