Moe had a lifelong career in road and bridge construction as a partner in Milbocker and Sons, Inc. He was a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 324 and the Michigan Road Builders Association. Moe was involved in the development and ownership of the Lynx Golf Course and was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing, hunting and adventure with friends and family. Travels took him to many interesting places, including Alaska, Africa and everywhere in between, including twelve years in Alabama's Gulf Shores, where Jean and Moe hosted friends and relatives.
