(Aug. 17, 2011)--Bruce Moses, a longtime research scientist at the UTSA Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), died Monday morning, Aug. 15, at his father’s home in Indiana after a long battle with cancer.

Moses began working at CAR in December 1995. A talented artist, illustrator and surveyor, he was a dedicated archaeologist of exceptional skill and a loving father.

He was an active member of the Southern Texas Archaeological Association (STAA) for many years and enjoyed sharing his extensive knowledge of the area’s rich cultural heritage, especially with children.

Moses is survived by his wife, Miosotis, and four sons Brandon, 5, Jacob, 10, and twins James and Jonathan, 11.

Open to the UTSA community, there will an informal memorial gathering for Moses at CAR on the UTSA Main Campus at 3 p.m., Friday, Aug. 19.
