Command Master Chief Louis Quitman Mozingo, III (Ret.), or “Lou” to those closest to him, was born in Selma, AL on March 25, 1943, and died in Fairhope, AL on October 4, 2022. Lou was raised in Mobile, AL until joining the Navy at age 17.
His successful Navy career spanned 30 years and he was recognized for his leadership and was proud to be known as a “Tin Can Sailor”.
In retirement, he was able to indulge in his love of golf, travelling with Kitty and buying every car he ever wanted.
Everyone loved his quick wit, his ability to tell a story, and his kindness. And we will mourn his loss, but we know that his struggle is over.
Lou was preceded in death by his father, Louis Quitman Mozingo, Jr., his mother, Sarah Blalock and brother, Steve Mozingo.
He is survived by his loving wife, Kitty Frazer Mozingo; children, Sarah Richardson (Brian) of Suffolk, VA, Robert Patterson Branyon (Margaret) of Fairhope, AL and Charles “Chip” Frazer Branyon (Leigh) of Baton Rouge, LA; grandchildren, Gabby Richardson, Mary Catherine Branyon, Patterson Branyon, Frazer Branyon and Katherine Bibb Branyon; sister, Susan Gilder (Tom) of Summerdale, AL; along with several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to express their appreciation to Community Hospice and to Essie English, who helped care for him during his last weeks.
A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at 12:30 PM at the Alabama Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 34904 State Hwy 225 in Spanish Fort, AL.
