Mr. Antonie Lamar Moss Jr.

On Tuesday, April 18, 2023 our beloved Antonie “Fatman” Lamar Moss Jr. unexpectedly transitioned from his earthly home to his Heavenly home. “Fatman” as he was affectionately known as, was born on March 1, 2004 to Shawnta Willis and Antonie Moss Sr., in Columbus, OH.

To have the privilege to have known “Fatman”, you knew he was the life of the party, who was always eating up someone’s food, and who could charm a perfect stranger with that beautiful smile and sense of humor. The legacy that “Fatman” left, not just with his family and friends but with the various sports teams he played on throughout the greater Columbus area, was his natural capabilities of being a leader on and off the “field/court” of life. His father Antonie Sr., recounted a story about the time he signed him up for the Rosewind Warriors football team at the age of 5. Unbeknownst to “Fatman”, all the other children were much bigger and older than him. Needless to say, he took a lickin’ and kept on tickin’. Yet, that minor setback didn’t deter him or his parents from his “calling”. He went to excel in sports setting records in both football and basketball with the following teams: Wolverines; Woodward Park and Howard Rec Centers; Ohio Varsity; OYSP; Brick League and finally Africentric Nubians. One game he scored 7 touchdowns. He often argued that he scored more touchdowns that game than what we recall. However, despite his success in sports, the biggest attribute that expands all facades of Fatman’s life was his desire to be: the best big brother, son, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend.

Antonie is survived by his parents; Shawnta Willis and Antonie (Tiawni) Moss, siblings; Santaisa Willis, Tamara and Tamya Willis, Iymani and Naszir Moss, great-grandparents; Betty Carter and Booker T.(Pam) Bullock, grandparents; Crystal Fobbs and Tyrone (PawPaw) Fobbs, Veronica (Steven) Johnson, Joseph Carter Jr., aunts; Sade’ (Anthony) Armstead, Ebonie (Jon/Uncle J) Koontz, Whitney Moss, Ah’Mircale Richardson, uncles; Tyresse Fobbs, Joseph Moss Sr., Shawn (Carrie) Moss, Michael Carter and Jarryl Carter and a host of aunts and uncles, cousins and friends who will all miss Antonie “Fatman” Moss Jr. dearly.

Preceded in death by great-grandparents; Paula Parker, Bertha Moss Johns, Robert C. Moss Sr., and Joseph L. Carter Sr., aunt; Amber Bailey

Fatman – Thank you for leaving us with beautiful memories to cherish and hold dear to our hearts – Until we meet again Rest in Power and Purpose!
