David Walker Moser “Double Eagle Dave”, 69, left his earthly home to enter Heaven on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 after a brief heart-related illness.
Dave graduated from Tyner High School in 1968 and (along with his three brothers) was an Eagle Scout. He served proudly in the Army National Guard, attended Tennessee Tech in Cookeville and graduated from ECPI. Dave was a natural genius regarding IT. He taught at ECPI after graduation and then retired after 38 years of service from Blue Cross Blue Shield Tennessee as senior director over Blue Care.
His passion was life itself. Dave was a lifetime member of SASS (Single Action Shooters Society) and for twenty plus years he was a member of the Ocoee Rangers, Hooten Olde Town (KY), Waretrace Regulators, TN Mountain Marauders, North Alabama Regulators, Possum Trot, and the Riverbend Rough Riders. He won numerous first place awards in Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, as well as in other states. Dave was loved by a band of “cowboy shooting brothers” and was known as the “Mayor of Hooten” in Hooten Olde Town (the town he loved). He was an expert in firearms and loved promoting “this silly game we play”. Dave was instrumental in bringing many new shooters into the sport, including a number of women. He was a faultless instructor. Dave was a renaissance man, proficient in many disciplines. A logical, analytical thinker to a fault, he will be missed by hundreds.
