BOISE -- A man who gave a lot of his time and money to local charities will be remembered Monday.

William "Bill" Moseley passed away in early October over from complications he suffered after a fall. He was 89-years-old.

Over the years, Moseley supported many Treasure Valley charities, but the Boys & Girls Club always held a special place in his heart.

"I guarantee the 2,500 kids that come to this club they all know his name and it's not because his name is on the building it's because he was there and he was active," said Colleen Braga, Ada County Boys & Girls Club Executive Director.

Moseley started to get involved with the club in the late 1990s and continued to serve there until his death.

"Bill was like the perfect supporter. He not only gave his time, treasure and talent, but he leveraged his relationships in the community to draw in support," said Braga.

She estimated that over the years, Moseley donated more than $1.5 million dollars and impacted the lives of more than 15,000 children.

"He was a quiet hero in our community and I think most people who know him know of the heroic things that he did," added Braga.

He loved to spend time at the Boys & Girls Club. He could often be found reading to children there.

Braga told KTVB that he appreciated the values taught at the club: responsibility, respect and integrity. Values Moseley represented.

"I think it gave him great hope that there is this hope for our future with this generation of kids," she said.

Braga added that Moseley's life and legacy will continue to live on at the Ada County Boys & Girls Club--and not just because the building is named after him.

"I will miss him. I will miss him dearly," said Braga.

A memorial service for Bill Moseley is planned for 10:00 a.m. on Monday at the Moseley Center. That's located in Garden City just off Veteran's Memorial Parkway. The public is encouraged to attend.
