Newcomb - Michael C. Moses, January 25, 1946 - April 11, 2016
Well done my good and faithful servant. Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
We are sure that Michael heard these words as he left his earthly body and entered the Kingdom of God.

He was later employed with Newcomb Central School and also worked until he retired from the Newcomb Highway Department.
While retired he became certified as Code Enforcement Officer for the Town of Newcomb.
