BRANSON, Mo. – A memorial visitation will be held this week in Branson for Bobby Ray Moskop, founding member of gospel music group The Foggy River Boys, who passed away Friday.
Lead singer Bob Hubbard says Moskop was instrumental in forming the band, which performed in Joplin and Kimberling City prior to starting the fourth music show on the Strip in Branson, running from 1974 to 1990…
Originally from Carthage, Bob Moskop taught high school music in Monett, Pierce City and Carl Junction. After retiring from teaching and performing, he and his wife Marvy built Dogwood Lanes Bowling Center, which they operated for 20 years.
Bob loved to fish, and was famous for cooking up his “fried taters and crappie” on creek bank camp fires.
Visitation runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Greenlawn Funeral Home on Highway 248 in Branson.
