Drew Moseley, 66, of Archbold, Ohio, left for his eternal home in heaven Monday afternoon, Jan. 6, 2020, from his earthly home following a brief illness.
He was born Jan. 22, 1953, in Montgomery, Ala., the son of Reginald and Dona Moseley. He married Rosene Miller Short on Jan. 2, 2010, and made his home with her in Archbold. Drew lived in Jasper, Ala., before moving to Archbold in 2010.
He worked as a salesman for many years selling real estate and beauty supplies. Drew’s real love was to be a salesman for Jesus bringing the salvation message of our Lord Jesus Christ to those that would come across his path. In Jasper, he was known as the Waffle House Chaplain where he ate breakfast. He prayed for many there and led many to the Lord Jesus Christ as he shared the gospel message. He also had a jail ministry in Jasper, along with two nursing homes where he ministered weekly. After moving to Archbold he was a co-pastor at Victory Barn Church in Edgerton the past 10 years, serving alongside of his wife, Rosene. Drew was an elder and associated with teaching and preaching. He was the outreach pastor and led weekly services at five nursing homes in the area leading many to the Lord Jesus Christ just before they passed from this life. He had such a love for those that were hurting and needed a touch of God in their lives. He ministered weekly in the jail leading many to the Lord Jesus Christ, mentoring them and teaching them the Word of God. He frequently visited those in the hospital to encourage, comfort, and pray for them.
Drew had a great love for people and especially for his family. His wife, children and grandchildren, brothers and sister held a special place in his heart as well as many close friends. He brought Godly wisdom and counsel to the table in times of need.
Drew enjoyed the beauty of nature. He found peace in the serene waters of Smith Lake and Maumee Bay State Park, as he did so many other special places. He enjoyed fishing, water skiing and riding jet skis. He was delighted in spending time at Oak Mountain State Park and Put-N-Bay where he enjoyed deer, bird, and eagle watching. He also loved Alabama football (Roll Tide!) and man’s best friend, Baby Mo, his black lab.
He is survived by his wife, Rosene; his three children, Heather (Josh) Simmons of Cordova, Ala., and twin sons, Eli (Danielle) Moseley of Oakman, Ala., and Aaron (WeTona) Moseley of Cordova, Ala.; step-children, Brian (Teresa) Short of Archbold, Brad (Colleen) Short of Grafton, Wisc., and Ryan (Cari) Short of Gainesville, Va.; grandchildren, Will Simmons, Sam Moseley, Dawson Moseley, Reid Moseley and Anna Moseley; step-grandchildren, Kayla (Bryan) Stine, Karly (Tad) Glibert, Madison Short, Joshua Short, Jessica Short, Jared Short, Jenna Short, Reagan Short and Rylee Short; step-grandchild, Savannah Stine; sister, Cam (Glen) Geise of Laughlin Nev.; brothers, Jack (Suzanne) Morrison of Gatesville, Texas, and Jay (Roxanne) Moseley of Gainesville, Fla.; and many nieces and nephews.
Drew was preceded in death by his parents, Reginald and Dona Moseley.
Visitation and services will be held Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020, at the Victory Barn Church in Edgerton, Ohio. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., followed by a celebration of life service at 1 p.m. Burial will be held at the Archbold cemetery, followed by a meal at the Barn Restaurant for any who would like to come and celebrate Drew’s life with his family.
