Moses Henry Carney Jr was born in Hampton, Virginia on August 13, 1947 to the late Moses Henry Carney Sr. and Mamie G. Carney. He was the oldest of seven children.
Moses was educated in Hampton public schools. He attended Thomas Nelson Community College and enlisted and served in the Army Reserves.
Moses’ vocation was in Residential and Commercial Home Improvement. Throughout the years Moses also was a handyman to many, eagerly assisting in repairs and renovations when needed.
Moses loved sports and was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan. He loved to eat and had many favorites including fried chicken, all-you-can-eat fish fry at Nanny’s, Mountain Dew and turkey butt. Yes, “turkey butt.”
Moses spent most of his life in Virginia and New York before moving to Florida. There he became a founding member of Pristine Spring Hill Baptist Church where he served faithfully as a “Dedicated Member.”
Affectionately called “Big Mo” or “Mo Junya,” Moses had a wholehearted sense of humor and infectious smile.
“Mo Junya” was predeceased by his sister Diane and three brothers Larry, Donald and Cornelius. He leaves to cherish his memory his devoted wife, Karen, three daughters Tiniqua, Twana and Tamara, one son Vance, one grandson D’Lorean, two brothers Thaddeus and Kenneth and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and good friends.
