Claude Edmond Moses, Sr “Ed”, 77, of Franklin, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, April 30, 2022.
Born in the Walnut Creek Community of Macon County, NC, He was the son of the late Clyde Moses and Alice Dills Carter, who survives. He was preceded in death by his stepmother, Bessie Moses. In his early years, Ed traveled the east coast working in tunnels before retiring from TVA in Chattanooga, TN, in 1974 due to a Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis at the age of 30. Ed was a fighter; he fought every day with a positive attitude. He loved people and never meet a stranger. Ed had a loyal breakfast crew at the Normandie Restaurant where he gathered regularly with his friends, and favorite waitresses Shelly and Valinda. He was quick witted and the king of “one-liners.” Ed enjoyed music, he never missed Picking on Square, loved gathering at the Cartoogechaye Community Building, and would plan back porch picking-and-grinnings. His greatest love was his children and grandchildren. An avid fifty-year softball fan, he lived to watch his granddaughter play softball. Ed spent his last day at the softball field.
