TUALATIN, OR -- Stafford Moznette, the third son of Esther and George Moznette, was born in Albany, GA and graduated Albany High in 1959. He attended University of Georgia for one year and completed his Bachelor's and Master's degrees at University of Oregon. In 1964, he became a manager with Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone and worked there until he took a very early retirement in 1991. He started a second career as manager at Seattle Art Museum until he decided to fully retire in 1994.

Stafford married his college sweetheart, Sharin, in 1964. They were blessed with 6 children: Missy, Melanie, Mitchell, Matthew, Meri, Meagan and nine grandchildren.

After a valiant fight against neuroendocrine cancer, Stafford was graduated to Glory on December 31, 2011. Stafford was well known for his incredible intelligence in business, economics, finance and education. Jim enjoyed golf, history, Oregon Duck football and flexing his savvy quick wit resulting in the most original and memorable "one-liners" you will ever hear. We can only imagine what his first words entering Heaven were.

A celebration of his wonderful life and his promotion to Glory is planned for January 28, 2012 at Countryside Community Church in Sherwood, Oregon, at 3:00 PM.

As Stafford highly valued education, a school for children who would otherwise have no education will be built in his memory in India. In lieu of flowers, gifts can be made to Open Arms, 13986 S.W. Hillshire Dr, Tigard, OR 97223, for the Moznette Memorial School.

Jim, Husband, Dad, Mentor, you are loved, you are missed, and because of your faith in Christ, we will see you again.
