Walter E. Moseley was born in Lasca, Alabama on May 26, 1944 to Walter and Adelle Moseley. They welcomed him into Heaven on February 15, 2021. On this day the family rejoiced in the reunion he also had with his first born daughter, Liz.
He grew up with his brothers, moving often as his dad was a member of the Army. His family settled in Uniontown, Alabama his junior year of high school. Not only was he the new kid sporting his ducktail hairstyle, he was also catching the eye of the girl he would spend his life with, Joanne Lowrey. He was an athlete playing football, basketball, and track.
Walt and Joanne married in 1964 and began their life together in Columbus, Mississippi. He began working at General Tire & Rubber Company the same year and dedicated 40 years of his life working hard and advancing within the company. He instilled in his children the same work ethic and the importance of providing for your family and helping others.
He began his retirement in 2004 and enjoyed getting up early, going to the YMCA, drinking a pot of coffee, and watching CNBC. He obsessed over his yard work, enjoyed crappie fishing, vacationed with his family, and took an unforgettable trip to the Grand Canyon with his son. He was a passionate fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide and cheered on the Atlanta Braves from his recliner. Home improvement projects filled his need to be productive and gave him much satisfaction.
Walt was a member of Mount Zion Baptist Church in New Hope, Mississippi, and was always eager to jump in and support missions and service projects.
He leaves behind his wife of 56 years, Joanne of Chickamauga, Georgia (formerly of Columbus, Mississippi) as well as his daughter, Alicia Webb (Jim) and sons, John Moseley and Brad Moseley, five grandchildren: Taylor (Tyler), Blayne, Aubrie, Beth, and Layna and one great grand girl due in May. He is also survived by his brothers, Ricky (Donna) and Kenny (Judy) and eight nieces and nephews. Family reunions were a special time for Walt as he enjoyed reminiscing with his many aunts, uncles, and cousins that he also leaves behind.
The family will have a private memorial to celebrate his life. Condolences and memories may be shared online at www.heritagebattlefield.com.
