Captain John Stewart Mossop

Stewart Mossop passed away Thursday January 1st, 2009 due to complications from ALS. Born in New Waterford, Cape Breton, Stewart was the son of John and the late Mary Mossop (MacPhee). Stewart was a gentle and kind man who will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 36 years, Mary Liz; his two daughters, Jennifer Mossop (Roger) and Shauna Boudreau (Gary); three grandchildren, Brandon, Joshua and Nate; brothers, Stephen (Paula), Terry (Joanne), Robbie (Karen) and David (Barbie); sister, Lisa McPhee (Danny) and many nieces, nephews and in-laws. He was predeceased by his mother Mary and his brother Gary.

Capt. Stewart Mossop was a proud serving member of the Canadian Forces for 38 years and served two tours in Cyprus as well as a four year posting to Germany. Throughout his 38 year career, Stewart was posted to many different units and locations across Canada. His hard work, dedication and constant professionalism allowed him to achieve the rank of Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) and hold the appointment of 2 RCR Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) as well as Base CWO at CFB Gagetown. After commissioning to the rank of Capt in 2000 he held many positions at Land Forces Atlantic Area Training Center (LFAATC) as well as the Infantry School. Capt Mossop was a well respected member of the CF, was an excellent example for his peers and comrades and will be missed by his Regimental brothers. Pro Patria.
