Bobby J. Moses, ‘Coffeeman’ born April 12, 1930, of Gulf Breeze passed away peacefully at the Joyce Goldenberg Hospice Center in Pensacola Florida on Thursday, June 9 2016. He was a dedicated and loving husband to his wife of 40 years Shirley, whom he mourned until his own death. He is preceded in death by his Sisters Josephine, Adeline, Thelma, Bernice, Evelyn and Juanita and by his brothers George and Richard. He was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. His parents Alexander and Emile Namaad, oldest sister Josephine and his Aunt emigrated from Lebanon and lived in Atlanta until their deaths. Coffeeman moved his family to Gulf Breeze, Florida in 1969. He was one of 11 children. Coffeeman was a medic in the Army during the Korean War and served his country from December 1, 1950 to September 1, 1952. He was wounded during his time in the Army and felt he was undeserving of the Purple Heart. He introduced Royal Cup Coffee to the Northwest Florida area until he started his own company, Superior Coffee. He earned the nickname Coffeeman when he would visit his customers they would call out ‘Coffeeman’ as he entered the room and the name stuck. Bobby Honey 'Coffeeman’ was an integral part of the community. Among many other things he was a founding member of the first three Pensacola Mardi Gras parades, Pensacola Seafood Festival, July 4th Big Bang, The December Fest, The Save A Kidney Foundation, the Pensacola Motel Hotel Association and served as Deputy Sherriff of the Santa Rosa County Election Office. Coffeeman loved to spend his days hunting and fishing. His love of being in the woods parlayed itself into owning his own little piece of land in Rock Creek, Alabama -- the 'Camp’ as it was affectionately called by all who visited. It was so much more than a Camp to everyone. He shared his hunting and fishing skills with many generations. He is survived by his daughters Cathy Forshee (Mike), Teresa Burns (Scott), The Captain B.J. Moses, Emily Littlejohn (Jim), 9 Grandchildren Rebecca, Carolyn, Alan, Laura, Erin, Michael, Misti, Katlyn and Brandon and 16 Great Grandchildren. Pallbearers are Alan Moses, Michael Maxwell, Brandon Lariscy, Carl Osley, Terry Lee and Keith Overlade. Honorary pallbearers, well you all know who you are! Some favorite Coffeeman sayings: “Love is like a lizard; it wraps around your heart and goes to your gizzard.” “It is not bad manners it is good beer.” “Uh-Uh” A Rosary Service will begin at 4:30 PM, Monday, June 13, 2016 at Rose Lawn Funeral Home in Gulf Breeze. The visitation will follow from 5-7 PM. The Funeral Mass will be held at 10:00 AM, Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at St. Sylvester Catholic Church in Gulf Breeze.
