In Loving Memory of Don Mosley

In Loving Memory of Don Mosley

March 24th, 2009

Unfortunately, today is a sad day for all of us at Worldwide Brands.  We have just been informed that Don Mosley passed away this weekend from the result of a blood clot in the lungs that went into his brain.  Don was one of the finest supplier researchers that we ever have had the pleasure of working with.  He’d always come into the office with a smile on his face, the latest sport statistics to share, and the eagerness to get to work and find new wholesale suppliers and dropshippers.  He formed many close relationships with suppliers and knew the Worldwide Brands Supplier database like the back of his hand. He was a very caring individual that put others before himself.

Don came to us from Mississippi, where he graduated from Mississippi State University. Since 2004 he used his customer service & sales background for Worldwide Brands. He also found time in his busy schedule to always pay it forward to his community on a volunteer basis.  As Senior Research Specialist, Don assisted our Director of Operations, Tisha Rogers, with heading up the Research Department. 

We all considered him part of our big extended family & he will be deeply missed.  Thank you to everyone in advance for you thoughts and  kind words.

  1. The news of Don’s passing is a shock to us. Don was instrumental in getting us started with Worldwide Brands, always willing to give advice or answer questions for a noob. We are better for knowing him.

    Our prayers are with his family.

  2. When I got that email in my inbox about Don passing away, my heart sank. While I never met Don face-to-face, his voice over the phone was always that of a friend, of someone who really wanted to help me. He was so understanding and patient. When I first started with Worldwide Brands, he walked me through the process of being a vendor. He just made the job easier. I will miss having him there to talk to. He was way too young to go. My sympathy goes out to his family and friends.

  6. I’ve only had the pleasure of speaking to Don two maybe three times in the past five years and always felt his warmth and enthusiasm for life. I feel we have lost a dear soul whose compassionate heart will be missed by many. My sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones.

    May God Bless him on his journey home.

  7. Saddness. My heart is gone right now. I got the message about Mr. Mosley passing and i donot know what to say. While i have never met Mr. Mosley face to face, he was the driving force for me to continue my business. He was understanding and a great motivator. When i first started, he walked me through the process of joining Worldwide Brand and made everything so easy for me. I will miss so much talking with him and his seriousness about being a vendor. His patience, and his guidance. May God bless his family and friends.

  9. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. I will pray that all of you grieve and heal completely in time. Know that he is in heaven and he wouldn’t want you to mourn for long. Be happy and remember all the wonderful times and moments you shared. Remember his wonderful spirit and work on being the same. Just reading about how pleasant and encouraging he was with everyone, everywhere, motivates me to be a better person.

    He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

  10. I am very sorry to hear of Don’s passing. I talked to him on the phone maybe three or four times last year, he got us set up on WWB database, very nice guy you can tell he was always smiling and the type of person who could get anyone in a good mood during their busy workaday, there should be more people in this world like Don.

  11. “How lucky I was to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to”
    I still remember the day when Don called me and introduced us to WorldWide Brands.
    An immediate friend over the phone and genuine Superstar of life.
    To the Loved One’s of Don, in all area’s who are touched by the loss of this man and from all of us – we wish you much strength, peace and gratitude for being lucky enough to have this man be a part of your life in some way.
    Don – Rest In Peace my friend – your footprint on this earth will be long remembered by many.

  12. We are so sorry to hear about Don’s passing. My sister was the one in our office who spoke to him on the phone when he first called and he was so patient in explaining to us about his company. He was so thorough and articulate on the phone, taking the time to be as clear as possible and answering all our questions, that we immediately trusted him. He seemed to have a gentle and honest vibe, even just over the phone. Even though we only spoke to him once or twice on the phone years ago, we recall him very well because of those qualities. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends and coworkers.
