William Lee Mossburg
Dr William Lee Mossburg, 81, of Johns Creek, Georgia, formerly of Fairmont, WV, passed away peacefully Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019. Born August 23, 1938 in Mt Morris, PA, William graduated from Morgantown High School in 1956 and went on to earn his undergraduate and medical degrees from West Virginia University. He also saw service in the United States Army.
William was a devoted husband and is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Judith Ann (Humphreys). He will be greatly missed by their children: Stephanie Hewitt (Rick), Susan Garner, Melanie Jordan, Jeffrey Davis (Susan), Kelly Cook (David), William Mossburg, Jr., Andrea Hoffman, and Amber Mossburg (Adam). He also leaves behind his cherished grandchildren: Madonna, Michelle, Anthony, Chris, Codie, Dustin, Sam, Shelby, Henry, Logan, Olivia, Wyatt, Laura Mae, Brandy, Ryan, and Nathan. William also was blessed with 11 great grandchildren. In addition, he is survived by his brothers, Donald and John Mossburg, his sister Jackie Chambers and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his son Eric Davis and his parents Grace Cummins and John Mossburg, as well as his brother James Mossburg.
William was a retired vascular and thoracic surgeon. His passion in life was practicing medicine. He practiced medicine in Fairmont, WV, Elizabeth City, NC, and Lewisburg, WV. "Doc" had a bed-side manner matched by no other and took great pride in taking time and concern for every patient he treated. No matter how many people were waiting to be seen, he would not rush through an appointment and treated all his patients with dignity and respect.
William was an avid Mountaineer Fan, a news junkie, a gadget guy, and loved his trips to Wal-Mart in his later years.
William chose cremation as his final disposition. A celebration of life for family and friends will be held at Mount Hebron Church in Jane Lew, WV on November 2, 2019 at 11am.

Steph and Sue...Was very sad to hear of the passing of your Dad. One of my many memories of him is the time Stephanie and I were participating in an annual 25 mile walk. We had made it about 20 miles and decided we should stop at the Dairy Queen in Westover for refreshments. Our final destination was the Coliseum. Not knowing any better, we didn't realize that our "pit stop" for more than a few minutes would tighten up our muscles and would make continuing an impossibility. Stephanie called her Dad and it was Dr. Mossburg to the rescue in his Volkswagen Bug. He was silent for a few minutes and then declared, "you girls both need a shower." Much love and prayers to you and your family.
