Eldon Moos
September 2, 1958 - November 21, 2021

Place of Birth: Circle, Montana
Residence: Sidney, Montana
Age: 63



Eldon Moos was born on September 2, 1958, in Circle, Montana to Edwin and Ida (Naasz) Moos. He was the youngest of four children and grew up on the family farm outside of town. He spent his childhood helping his dad on the farm, fishing on the weekends, riding bikes with his friends, playing his made-up game of flog, and eventually bailing tons of hay that helped him pay his way through college at Montana State University in Bozeman.

Eldon went to college in Bozeman to receive his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education. While attending college he also took up skiing, spent his time writing and playing music in the dorms with his buddies, and played league bowling around the state. His education brought him to Sidney where he student-taught at Sidney High School in the early 1980s but ended up working at the state Job Service during the week and Pamida on the weekends. Eldon had a few other jobs throughout the years, including Cenex for the last 20 years, and most recently going back to Job Service, but his motivation was always where the people were. He took pride in every job he had but he loved working with and being around people. If he couldn’t tell you a joke or help make you smile for the day, his job wasn’t done.

In 1983, Eldon realized that his blind-date turned pen pal, Dana Proctor, was really the love of his life. After a few short weeks of reconnecting with one another, he proposed to her on her birthday in August, and they were married a few short weeks later on October 1, 1983. They had met through friends in Bozeman, but life took them in opposite directions and in different states for a few short years, but fate, patience, and prayer brought them back together.

In 1984, they welcomed their firstborn, a daughter, Cassandra, into the world in September. They then welcomed their second child, a son, Alan, in June of 1986. Eldon worked hard so that his wife could be a stay-at-home wife and mother, and so that their children could participate in music, sports, theatre, and/or 4H. Together they raised a family, had a crafting business where Eldon cut wood items for Dana to paint on, and once they moved into town they spent many hours together beautifying their yard. In 2006, he and his wife had the opportunity to work together as Dana opened up Party Central in downtown Sidney, after purchasing it from the Yellowstone Merc. However, it wasn’t until 2011, that Eldon really began helping out with the business when they added the popcorn factory to the business. Eldon in time became the popcorn maker of the business and made popcorn his hobby. Though, once he became a papa to his granddaughter, Elayna, he couldn’t resist making whatever flavor she requested or suggested he made. His favorite part of this hobby was getting kisses from her as she bribed him for more popcorn. His excitement continued when his grandson, Clark, was born and was old enough to understand the popcorn making as well.

Eldon loved helping people out. He spent several years volunteering at the Sidney Chamber of Commerce by contributing to the start-up of the Sunrise Festival of the Arts along with being president for one year. Eldon and Dana also faithfully attended the Sidney Lutheran Brethren Church. He played piano for the younger children during Sunday school, and they would sing and dance their hearts out. Some of his favorite tunes to play for them were I’m in the Lord’s Army, Deep and Wide, and This Little Light of Mine. Eldon was a faithful man, attending church and Sunday school when his work schedule allowed for it. He attended men’s fellowships and appreciated bible studies. Even up to his last heartbeat, he was thinking about his faith and Christian music.

Eldon Moos passed on Sunday, November 21, with his wife and two children at his bedside. As they waited for him to go home to the lord, they played a piano melody of Victory in Jesus, and like the true musician that he was, he left this world as the final note faded out. He passed away due to complications to COVID at Billings Clinic in Billings, Montana.

He is survived by his wife, Dana Moos; his daughter, Cassandra Moos; son Alan (Jaci) Moos; his two grandchildren, Elayna and Clark Moos; his brother Don (Nancy) Moos; his sister Janice (Paul) Albert; his nephews Rick (Becky) Fritz and Mike (Lisa) Fritz, Billy Albert, Jon (Dina) McKinney; his nieces Amy (Randy) Gilbertson, Sheila (Dan) O’Brien; Michelle (Scott) Syth, and Rose (John) Minnock.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Edwin and Ida Moos, sister Doline Fritz, brother-in-law Earl Fritz, father-in-law Robert Proctor, and mother-in-law Marie Doting.

Dana and family,
My heartfelt condolences go out to each one of you during this difficult time. I'm truly sorry for your loss. Eldon was always a pleasant person to be around even as a kid. I remember back in Circle, he would always make the time to visit with the neighborhood kids. It was a blessing to find out that he owned Party Central when I moved back to Eastern Montana and my wife and I always would stop when we were going through Sidney. He will definitely be missed by all that ever had the pleasure of meeting him. May God rest his soul and bring you all peace and comfort during this time.

So sad to hear of Eldon’s death. He was a highlight to my Sidney visits. Never mattered when I arrived, inevitably we would run into each other and have a good chat. He ways always friendly and smiling. I was truly surprised the first time we ran into each other and he remembered me. It had been a lot of years since our Pamida days. I can’t imagine coming to Sidney without seeing his bright and shiny face. My condolences to his wife and children. He spoke very highly of you all. He will be missed by many! Will keep you in my prayers.

I first met Eldon when he got the job I had applied for at the sugar beet factory. I was angry at first, but he was such a nice guy I couldn't stay mad. Over the last 25 years, I always went to where he worked just to talk to him. He was always so honest, upbeat, and kind. I'll miss him.
