Charles E. Moses, 65, of Stamford, CT passed away peacefully on March 29th, 2021 after a challenging battle with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD). He was born on September 5, 1955 in Glenridge, NJ. He received his BS degree in Chemistry from Fairfield University in Connecticut and started his career as a chemist with Clairol 1978. He continued to work in the beauty care industry until his retirement in 2020.
Charles is survived by his wife of 21 years, Dona (Fearing) Moses, their daughter Claudia; daughters from first marriage to Olwyn Shirley, Amber Mersier (Na’eem) and Christina Reed (Jalil); grandchildren Lateef and Akira Reed, Na’eem Jr. and Ahmad Mersier. Brothers Clarence and Wayne Moses, sisters Lillian Waters, Ruth (Bruce) Washington and Kathleen Coppedge, as well as a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
He was preceded in death by his mother Victoria (Fisher) Moses and father Primes Moses; brother Joseph, sisters Cynthia Drakeford, Sharon Webb and brother-in-law George Waters.
Charles was known for his amazing athletic abilities and competitive nature. His greatest joy was passing on his love for basketball to his daughters and watching them play during their school years. (Go Montclair Mounties and Stamford Black Knights!) His excellent culinary skills on his grill were appreciated by many, including his legendary steaks, which he perfected with the help of his faithful sidekick Buddy.
The family would like to thank Constellation Health Services Hospice team for their loving and compassionate care to Charles and tremendous support to his family during this difficult journey.
