FARMVILLE, N.C.—Albert Northcutt Mosley Jr. passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015.

His spirit will live on forever. The memorial service was on Friday, Feb. 27, at the Farmville Christian Church, Farmville, North Carolina.

Albert was the son of Lillian Freuler Mosley and Albert Northcutt Mosley, and was born on Aug. 2, 1946, in Sequatechie County, Tennessee. Shortly after Albert’s birth the family moved to Farmville, North Carolina, the home of Albert’s mother’s family.

A ferocious Red Devil and voted Most Versatile, Albert graduated from Farmville High School and then earned a B.A. degree from Atlantic Christian College, where he received the prestigious Mr. Top Hat Award. Moving to Virginia, Albert earned a Master’s of Education Supervision degree from Old Dominion University, and was a teacher and a principal in Southampton County. Albert also worked at the Bank of Franklin.

His outgoing personality and natural leadership skills made Albert an Integral part of many civic and business organizations culminating in his recognition as one of the Outstanding Young Men of America in 1980. In the late 1980’s, Albert’s love of the ocean led him from Virginia to Avon, North Carolina, where he was the manager of Avon Thornton Limited Partnership until he decided it was time to go to Farmville and retire to 1995, where he has since been surrounded by family, friends and loved ones.

Remaining family members who cherish the years they had with Albert are his son, Brian Mosley, and wife, Erin Griffith-Mosley, and his granddaughters, McKenzie and Chloe; his sister, Annette Alexander, and husband, Bill Alexander; his sister, Arlene Wilder, and husband, Dan Wilder; his sisters, Becky Avery and Donna Mosley; his brothers, Grady Mosley and Chester Mosley; all of his nieces and nephews; as well as the two loves of his life, Virginia Gwaltney Mosley and Linda Marks Mosley.

The family would like to express their sincere thanks for the many years of care from Dr. Steven Hamstead and nurse Marilyn Blalock and the associates at Farmville Physicians East; the crew at Best Value Drug, who so often delivered a Diet Pepsi with his medicine; the Farmville Rescue Squad, who literally picked him up when he was down; and recently, Karen, Penny and all the caring nurses and aides at Pruitt Healthcare of Farmville, who made his last few weeks so comfortable.

Albert’s life was enriched by caring ministrations of members of The First Baptist Church of Farmville and The Farmville Christian Church, and especially from the love, prayers and assistance from his beloved pastor. Dr. Jarrett Banks.
