BOISE -- Someone who gave a lot of money to charity passed away Tuesday.

89-year-old Bill Moseley died from complications after suffering a fall last month.

The decorated World War II veteran was a pioneer in the frozen food industry. He helped found the - Frozen Potato Product Institute - with many of his processing techniques still used today.

Moseley was also part owner of the land where the Boise Towne Square Mall now sits.

His favorite job was giving to the Boys and Girls Clubs, whether it was with the many checks he wrote to fund programs or build structures, or to hang out with the kids at a safe place before and after school.

Last spring, Moseley was awarded the first Boys and Girls Club achievement award that now bears his name.

The "thank you's" that some of the kids at the club sent to him then, rings true today.

A family member tells us that a memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. on Oct. 28 at the Boys and Girls Club in Garden City.
