Mr. Kiser was born May 4, 1929 in Concord, NC to the late Homer Clarence Kiser and Mary Ann (Cameron) Kiser. He served in the U.S. Navy as an Aircraft Radio Electrician
aboard the USS Sicily and obtained the Korean Service Medal 3 stars, Navy Occupation Medal, and United Nations Service Medal, among others. He had a distinguished career with NASA as an electrical engineer working on projects such as Mercury, LDEF, Space Shuttle launches, and others. He was well respected and revered among his other amazing colleagues.
He married Joan Carolyn Hagler of Concord, NC on February 10, 1952 and they shared 63 wonderful years together, having one daughter, Monica Gwyn Kiser.
Mr. Kiser had a passion for his cars and enjoyed "tinkering around in the garage" with them, as he would say. He was an avid collector of NASCAR memorabilia and enjoyed
watching the races, all of them. He enjoyed the many years he got to know, and spend time with, his neighbor Richard Harold who became a great friend to him later in life.
Mr. Kiser was preceded in death by his wife Joan Carolyn (Hagler) Kiser, his daughter, Monica Gwyn (Kiser) Stevens, his brother Julius Wayne Kiser, and his sisters Lottie Sue
(Kiser) McClain and Mary Ellen (Kiser) Suther.
He is survived by his two grandchildren, Anthony Cameron Stevens of Schuyler, VA and Marci Robyn (Stevens) Graham of Henrico, VA; great grandson Atraiu Cameron Stevens of Virginia Beach, VA; nephew Terry Allen Suther and wife Ann of Fayetteville, NC; niece Karen Suzanne (Suther) Kearns and husband Carey of High Point, NC; nephews Billy Eugene McLain, Jr., of Kannapolis, NC, Robert Kiser, David Alexander, Jr. of Newport News, VA; and grand-nieces Kimberly Ann Suther and partner Zelle Windham of Seattle, WA, Lisa (Suther) Johnson and husband Brian of Fayetteville, NC, and Brandi Michelle Kearns of High Point, NC.
