Respected citizen, businessman, farmer and friend, Floyd Moye, age 89 passed peacefully at his beloved Redbone Community Home on Wednesday, March 13, 2024. Distinctly known for his bright smile and vibrant personality, Floyd had a life-long pursuit to be active in every way whether promoting his church, (Ramah Primitive Baptist Church), community (Redbone Community Cubhouse), and other cvic pursuits (Barnesville Rotary Club – Service before self), Republican Party Chairman – personal aquaintance with Newt Gingrich, Saxby Chamblis, Sonny and David Perdue and Robert Dickey, and the Primitive Baptist Foundation founder (life – insurance for ministers and their widows).
Floyd was born in 1935 to parents Newton and Willie Nell (Keen) Moye. His childhood was idealic and memorable with siblings Ruth Keene, Alex and Carrie Nelle. He attended Gordon Military, University of Georgia, Officers Training School and Jump School until he served in the United States Army at Fort Ord; Monterey Bay, California.

Floyd enthusiastically embraced life and was known to always invite anyone and everyone to participate in wholesome and worthwhile endeavors. He successfully sold life insurance to families all over the state of Georgia and knew every route possible. In his “free time” he ran a successful hunting preserve, Redbone Farms Hunting Preserve, Redbone Farms Barn Dance and Little Tobesofkee Creek Ranch (a fly-in equestrian farm) that were known throughout the Piedmont.
Never failing to serve his church in multiple capacities (Deacon, Song Leader, Choir member), he was also known to be a generous neighbor and friend. His life is marked by love, laughter and singing. Family and friends consider themselves blessed to have known him. Family is everything!
A celebration of his life was held at Ramah Primitive Baptist Church on March 23, 2024, with beautiful music, stunning flag presentation and meaningful tributes given.
Floyd is truly now “FREE” and resting in the sweet peace of God’s love.

Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; for the end of that man is peace.
