Bob Musser, 80 of Ruidoso and formerly of Carrizozo passed away Monday, December 26, 2016 in Ruidoso. He was born November 22, 1936 at Crawfordsville, IN. He moved to Lincoln County in 2010 from Tucson, AZ, where he had lived since 1946. Bob held many jobs, parking lot sweeper, machinist apprentice for Hughes Aircraft, built fiberglass boats and campers, cultured marble bathtubs and showers, electrician, built modular homes and was a construction superintendent for Sundt Corp from 1970 until his retirement in 1996. He was truly a jack of all trades and master of many. He married his high school sweetheart, Sue Walp, on February 19, 1956.
He is survived by his wife, Sue; son, Mark Musser, daughter-in-law Susan Musser, daughter, Lori Wetzel, son-in-law Walt Wetzel, 8 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild.
Bob was a real people person, and any who knew or worked with him had great respect for him. He had a knack for seeing the true character of anyone he met and he had a kind and generous heart. If you truly needed it, he would give you the shirt from his back. Bob was a loving family man and friend. His family always came first, especially his wife, and he worked long and hard to provide for them. He would willingly share his knowledge, if you were willing to learn. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
His memorial service will be Monday, January 2, 2017, at 2:00 PM in the Trinity United Methodist Church in Carrizozo. The family asks in lieu of flowers, please donate to the Shriner's Burn Hospitals in his name.
