April 11, 1947 ~ April 18, 2022

Born in: Buncombe Co., NC
Resided in: Asheville, NC

John Raleigh Mozingo, 75, of Asheville, passed away Monday, April 18, 2022, at the Charles George VA Medical Center.

A native of Buncombe Co., John was a son of the late Walter and Alpha Prescott Mozingo.

Mr. Mozingo was a veteran of the U.S. Navy.

John was kind to everyone. Did you ever hear him speak ill of another person? If he had an enemy, who was it? Although he didn’t talk about his faith much, he had a quiet way of living it out and showing the love of Jesus to others. John was easy to hang out with and loved by so many.

For us who were close to him, he had a peculiar charm with his friendly gestures and quirky nicknames for everyday items. If he wasn’t tied up with one of his classic car projects he was probably helping you work on your car. He will also be remembered for his frequent fishing outings.

John was a loving father and a faithful friend. He will be greatly missed.

Surviving are his children, Tim Mozingo, Michael Mozingo (Meriah) and Jennifer Minish (Kevin); grandchildren, Jake and Claire Minish, and Ezra and Elliot Mozingo; and brothers, Roy Mozingo and Tom Mozingo (Eva).

Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, in the Patton Avenue chapel of Groce Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Lewis Memorial Park.

The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service, beginning at 12:00 p.m.

  2. So very sorry to hear about John, our thoughts and prayers are with y’all during this time. John was a real good guy, my fondest memory fishing came from fishing with John and he is probably telling my brother Mike about the one that got away. He will be missed but not forgotten.

  6. John, was such a figure of stability. Quiet, only talked if he had something profound to say. Funny and a loyal faithful friend. We loved John for who he was. He loved His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and shared his faith with how he loved and interacted with others. May each of us learn from this beautiful man who taught us how to live. God bless you family as you carry on his legacy. We were honored to have him in our lives and a member of our church. You will be missed John until we see you again in Heaven. Then we might just go fishing! Mike & Debbie Brown.

  8. When we moved to Asheville over 38 yrs ago, we met John at church. A few years later John & Larry became coworkers at Diebold. What a sweet, amusing and quiet man he was. Such a kind heart and loving disposition, we will always remember you John for the dear friend and brother in the Lord that you were to us. So glad the Lord put us together in this life here on earth. We will see you again in heaven, you have been promoted and are worshiping your Lord face to face now. We love you John & we love you Mozingo family. We are continuing to pray for all of you.

    Larry & Sharon Fleet

  9. I don’t know much about my cousin unfortunately. Growing up we were so far apart, however I remember one trip to Asheville and visiting with the family. Since them, Tommy and John came to our annual cousin’s reunion in the early 2000’s but have not seen them for sometime. I do know we were all glad to have them.May his family know that even though we were some distance apart, we still loved him. May he Rest In Peace.
