Clay William Mosley

July 20, 1959 — February 28, 2022

Clay William Mosley, 62, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, went to his Heavenly home on Monday, February 28th, 2022. He spent his last days surrounded by his beloved wife Debbie and sons Parker and Landon.

He was born to William (Bill) Carl Mosley and Dixie Lee Reger Mosley in Amarillo, Texas, on July 20, 1959. Clay was raised in Amarillo, where he was involved in gymnastics at Nards and Maverick Boy's Club and in Judo at Tim Joe's School of Judo. He was a 1977 graduate of Tascosa High School where he played baseball and excelled at wrestling. After attending Amarillo College, he later graduated from West Texas State University with a B.B.A. in Finance.

On February 14, 1986, Clay married the love of his life, Deborah Sue Baldwin, at Paramount Terrace Christian Church in Amarillo. They were blessed with two beloved sons, Parker William born in 1989 in Amarillo and Landon Clay born in 1992 in Wichita, Kansas.

While in Wichita, Clay was a buyer for Morton Meats while working at Excel Corporation, a division of Cargill Industries. Upon his return to Amarillo in 1994, Clay partnered with Ed Wright Cattle Company where he traded cattle throughout Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. During this time, he was a member of Texas Cattle Feeders Association.

In 1998, he moved to Collierville, Tennessee, a suburb of Memphis, where he served as Vice President of CattleCo, Inc., a division of Sparks Industries. Clay and Debbie raised their sons in the Memphis area focusing on their Christian faith while members of Germantown Baptist Church. Clay was also involved in their education in Shelby County Schools and active in both coaching and supporting their youth athletics.

2013 brought Clay and Debbie to Highlands Ranch, Colorado, where he continued his industry expertise in the cattle business and commodities trading. During this time, he was an advisor to the cattle committee of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He served on the boards of LaVaca Meat Company, Beef Alliance, and MS Biotec. He was an investor in Colorado-based companies Pax8 and The Storm Cellar winery. Clay supported numerous charities including Make-a-Wish Foundation, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, Denver Active 20-30 Children's Foundation, Cherry Hills Community Church, and various youth livestock auctions.

Clay and his bride, whom he adored, lived life to the fullest and traveled anywhere adventure took them. He loved his sons tremendously and was proud of the gentlemen that they have grown to be. Clay enjoyed Friday phone calls with his father, Thursday phone calls with his mother, a lively conversation around a "regulation fire," skiing with his sons, a great steak, and a Johnny Walker Black on the rocks. He was overjoyed as he began a new chapter as a grandfather to Claire Abington, born in December 2021. All those who knew him will teach Claire about the wonderful man her "Cowboy" was and impart the many values he represented.

Clay Mosley was as fine a man as God ever made. He had a heart of gold the size of Texas. A man of unwavering integrity. A loving husband, an outstanding father, a cherished son and brother, and a loyal friend. His compassion and generosity touched all who knew him.

Clay is survived by his wife Debbie Mosley, son Parker and his wife Holly Mosley, son Landon Mosley, granddaughter Claire Mosley, mother Dixie Mosley, sister Judy and her husband Larry Day, brother Paul and his wife Stacie Mosley. He is preceded in death by his father Bill Mosley.
