Obituary - Bruce Moog

After a two-year crusade against esophageal cancer, Bruce Timothy Moog was called to be with Christ April 9, 2024, at home with daughter Andrea D. Moog and wife Sandra L Moog by his side.

Bruce joined his five siblings, Robert, Gary, Daren, Mick, and Shila, to become the sixth blessing to Robert and Una (Alley) Moog on December 22, 1957. Bruce was later joined by Marlin, Grady, and Deanne.

Bruce's favorite memories of grade school were making cookies on Saturdays, playing baseball, and excavating the basement by the bucket full. During his Inverness high school years, Bruce stayed out of mischief by excelling in sports; football, basketball, and track as well as choir, band, and maintaining Honor Roll.

After graduating Inverness High School, Bruce continued his education at Montana State University where he studied computer sciences and became a member of Beta Rho Chapter of Sigma Chi Fraternity, a Life Loyal Sig. With just eight credits left for his Bachelor of Sciences, Bruce felt the agrarian calling to farm with his partners, Hi-Line Farms-Moog, Wood, and LaValley. Bruce enjoyed the farm life until he began his postal career, May 1989.

August 9, 1989, he married Sandra L. (Mikulecky) Haas, joined by Kevin and Mitchell Haas. In 1990, Bruce and family transferred to Everett, WA, where the twins, Andrea and Cassandra were born on Thanksgiving Day.

Bruce's career with the postal service provided many opportunities for advancement which Bruce surpassed receiving awards for "Excellence in Service." Bruce's goal to become postmaster was fulfilled when he transferred to Cut Bank, MT. Bruce's ability to inspire, his easy smile, and exemplary work ethic, earned rewards for his employees and him, 1998-2002.

Bruce was active in the Lions Club and found his passion for golf when he joined the golf leagues. In 2003, the opportunity to accept the challenge of a higher level of post office became available in Libby, MT. Golfing, bowling, fishing, landscaping, tending fruit trees, grapevines, and a variety of berries, and making wine were many of Bruce's hobbies while living in Libby, MT.

Bruce retired in 2017, making annual trips to see family, friends, and spending as much time as possible at Cabinet View Golf Club.

Bruce is preceded in death by his father, Robert W. Moog; mother, Una N. (Alley) Moog; father-in-law, Charles J. Mikulecky, and nephews John D. Moog (Gary) and Cole K. Moog (Daren).

Bruce is survived by wife of 34 years, Sandra L (Mikulecky); stepsons, Kevin and Mitchell (Angela) Haas; daughters, Andrea and Cassandra Moog; siblings, Robert (Mary Jane), Gary (Sherry), Daren, Michael (Janez), Shila (Frank) Peters, Marlin (Solange) Grady, Deanne (Brian) Robo; mother-in-law, Patricia L. (Peschel) Mikulecky; brother-in-law, Edward Mikulecky; sister-in-law, Lisa (John) Mikulecky-Iverson; six grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
