Accountant killed in Edmond wreck

NORMAN — A Norman accountant died Saturday after a wreck in Edmond.

The family of Martin Moses, 70, of Norman, is now writing his obituary.

Wyman Atwell, Moses’ son-in-law, on Sunday said the family plans to provide Primrose Funeral Service with the obituary this morning.

Atwell said Moses was involved in a two-vehicle wreck near North Coltrane Road and East Memorial Road.

Oklahoma City police responded to the collision, though officials could not be reached for comment.

Senior Pastor Brent Hardesty of the Norman Community Church of the Nazarene said Moses, a church member, will be missed.

“I know he was a ... well-loved person here in town,” Hardesty said. “We expect that there will be a really strong outpouring of love and respect for the family.”

Assistant District Attorney David Batton, who had lunch with Norman Kiwanis Club volunteer Moses every Tuesday for the past five years, said he was shocked to hear of Moses’ death.

“He was just a wonderful person, a good adviser,” Batton said. “We enjoyed him as you do most of the Kiwanis there — it’s just good fellowship.”

Batton, who is a board member for the local club, said Moses was an involved volunteer who served in a number of the club’s projects, primarily in the Kiwanis Terrific Kids Program.

The program helps elementary students excel in leadership skills.

Moses is survived by his wife, Donna; daughters Kim and Lori; and sons Paul and Steven.
