Campus community remembers retiree Charles Mosley

Charles Edward Mosley, shipping/receiving clerk who retired in 2011 after 37 years of service at the University of Delaware, died Aug. 19, 2020. He was 64.

Mr. Mosley joined the campus community in 1974 as a driver with Campus Delivery.

Colleagues and friends recalled Mr. Mosley’s contributions to the campus.

“Charlie was one of the very best people that I worked with at the University,” said retiree Joe Poe. “The laughter and jokes everyday made the job fun. I was his group leader and supervisor, and he made my job easier. He will be missed by all who knew him.”

Carol Ann Harris, retired printing technician in University Printing, said “To say that Charlie was my friend, is an understatement. He and I go way back. He was one of the sweetest people that I know. My heart is so heavy. Some of our most happy times were at the open house events that Graphics Communications [now University Printing] gave. He has always been a good friend. I will always remember him with love.”

For Lori Squier, service coordinator in Mail Services, Mr. Mosley was “one of a kind.” “He was a good man -- caring, thoughtful, funny,” she said. “He loved to play jokes on people. I will never forget him.”

Kimberly Doucette, business administrator in Interdisciplinary Science Learning Laboratories, noted that she had known Mr. Mosley for a very long time. “I remember Charlie as a fun-loving guy who loved to fish and race cars. Charlie loved his family and would do anything for them. He and Michael Cale, who used to work in Campus Mail but sadly passed away in 2013, used to fish together when they could. I could always count on Charlie for a laugh at any time. Occasionally, a group of us would go out after work for happy hour at either the Deer Park or TGIFriday’s and the roaring laughter could be heard throughout the restaurant.  I will miss him very much!”

A Celebration of Life service for Mr. Mosley was held Sept. 2 at the Congo Legacy Center in Wilmington, Delaware.
