DERRAL DEAN MOSBY
August 29, 1955 ˜ July 1, 2020
Derral Dean Mosby of Ridgefield, WA died July 1, 2020 in Ridgefield, WA. He was born Aug. 29, 1955 in Cottage Grove, OR.
Derral lived his entire life a true representative of the Cowboy Code. Virtually born in the saddle on the Mosby Family Century Farm he was a successful sheep & cattle rancher, all around champion rodeo cowboy and well respected cattleman. The only thing he loved more than his much beloved Registered Horned Hereford show cattle was his family.
Derral is survived by his wife of nearly 47 years, Tomi Mosby; daughter, Staci De Jong (Jerry) Lebanon, OR; “Poppy” to grandchildren, Trevor & McKenzie Turner (Battle Ground), Taylor & Logan De Jong (Lebanon, OR) and Dawsyn Mosby (Centralia, WA).
He was preceded in death by sons, Derral K. & Chance; and daughter, Lacy.
Friend and mentor to many, Derral was truly a one of a kind, irreplaceable man, taken from us suddenly and far too soon.
A Celebration of Life will be held July 18 at 1pm on the ranch, as he would have wanted.
