Joey Moss is an Edmonton legend. For nearly 35 years, Joey was a integral part of the lockerroom for the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Football Club. His work ethic, compassion, sense of humor, and passion for life were unequalled. He was the recipient of numerous awards including the NHL Alumni's "Seventh Man Award" in 2003 and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012. He has a mural on 99th street, painted as part of the "Giants of Edmonton" program, and he was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in 2015. He passed away at the age of 57 on October 26, 2020.
The COVID-19 pandemic will make a public memorial difficult, if not impossible, and so this site aims to allow people to share their condolences. I'd like to look at presenting what is collected here as a printed book to the Moss family, and potentially make copies for the archives of the Edmonton Oilers, the Edmonton Football Team, and the Alberta Provincial Archives. If there's only a handful of entries, then the site will simply stay as a small memorial.
So I invite you to submit your memories, stories, condolences, photos, thoughts and more. Joey's reach and impact on Edmonton is incalculable, but we'll do our best here to capture some of it together.
