Obituary of Keith O.D. Moses
Keith Ovid Douglas Moses was an attorney, musician, entrepreneur and family-man. Born in Annsgrove, Guyana, he was the son of the late Reginald A. and Beatrice Bobb Moses. He attended Strath Campbell Government School, where his father was the founder and Headmaster, and Central High School in Georgetown, Guyana. Upon graduating high school, he began college at the University of Guyana, majoring in life sciences. In 1976, he met and married Ngozi Moses. In 1978, he immigrated to New York, U.S.A. with his family. Attorney Moses earned an undergraduate degree in Accounting at Baruch College and earned his Juris Doctor from New York Law School. He passed the bar exam in NY, NJ and CT and started his own law practice, the Law Offices of Keith Moses, serving clients in NJ and CT. A community advocate, he devoted his practice to under-resourced and underserved clients, often providing pro-bono services and waiving fees for indigent clients. He practiced law at the Law Offices of Keith Moses until the time of his retirement.
In addition to his law practice, Attorney Moses was a singer and musician, recording his first song, as “Dougy Mo”, in 1973. He was proficient in nearly every instrument and successfully taught himself to play the guitar, piano, trumpet and harmonica. Throughout his adult life he wrote, produced and recorded his own music, as well as performed live with many other professional musicians and bands. His love for music and entrepreneurial spirit led him to create two businesses aimed at helping young artists: YAA (Young Aspiring Artists) and ESI (Entertainment Services International). Attorney Keith Ovid Douglas Moses, age 72, died peacefully on November 20, 2022, surrounded by his family at home.
