Kevin Abasi Moses, born on March 12th, 1973, in Bethesda, Maryland, died May 30th, 2022, in Elk Grove, California. He is survived by his wife, Sara Moses, and sons, Austin and Braxton, as well as his parents Morris Moses and Toney Moses, his brother Anthony, sister-in-law Judy, and nephews Maxwell and Malik.
Kevinâs father was a colonel in the army, so Kevin grew up in multiple cities along the east coast and even spent a few years in Germany, based on where his father was stationed. Kevinâs friendly and easy-going demeanor allowed him to meet people easily and his athleticism and competitive nature had him playing tennis, winning bowling competitions, and being a star soccer player wherever he went.
Kevin spent the end of high school and most of his early adulthood in Maryland. After high school, Kevin was interested in business and worked hard to learn about each company he was a part of to work his way up. At the age of 20, Kevin was blessed with his first son, Austin, and dedicated himself to being a positive role model and providing for his son. Kevin worked in retail and started as a barista at Starbucks, working his way up to be a district manager. He took his amazing people skills and moved into human resources with Best Buy. Working in retail meant long work hours and often holidays away from family, but Kevin ensured he could share experiences with Austin including going on vacations, attending concerts, or coaching Austinâs sports teams.
In 2011, Kevin pursued a work opportunity to be a manager with Best Buy and relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in California. Kevin missed the snow and his family but loved taking advantage of all the activities available year-round in the Bay Area, especially hiking with his beloved dog, Todd.
After less than a year in California, Kevin met Sara on match.com. Their relationship progressed quickly, both knowing how right it felt from the very beginning and they were married in the summer of 2014, in Morgan Hill, California, just a little over two years after they met. They were blessed with their son, Braxton, in the fall of 2015. Kevin, Sara, and Braxton moved to Elk Grove, California to buy a home in a diverse, family-oriented community. A short time later, Austin also relocated to California and Kevin was thrilled to have his boys together.
Throughout Kevinâs life he demonstrated a strong work ethic, and his co-workers were also his friends. He is remembered as a great leader and someone always ready with a joke. Kevin enjoyed relaxing with his family and made sure to continue to create special experiences for his family whether that was planning movie nights in the back yard, trips to the zoo, cooking classes, or family vacations. Kevin was a loving father and was so very proud of Austin for his kind heart and working to pursue his dreams and of Braxton, for his confident exuberance.
Kevin has always been social and adventurous. He faced his fears of ocean water and heights on several occasions. He went scuba diving in the Caribbean with Austin, and scuba diving again later in life while on a trip with his in-laws. He went sky diving twice and even took a flying lesson. Kevin also enjoyed poker, golf, and watching his Baltimore Ravens.
Everyone liked Kevin. His calm, easy way about him, and his humor allowed him to connect quickly with others. Kevin felt things deeply, even though he didnât always express it to others. He showed his love through thoughtfulness, quality time, humor, and acts of service. These attributes made him an amazing friend, co-worker, uncle, son, brother, father, and husband. Kevin was a good man and is deeply missed by friends and family.
Funeral services will be Saturday, June 18th, 2022, at 2pm at East Lawn Elk Grove Memorial Park and Mortuary in Elk Grove, California with reception to follow.
