Moses Lawer-Yolar, age 20, of Morgantown, passed away suddenly Monday afternoon, June 12, 2017 due to an accident at Cheat Lake.

He was born August 25, 1996 in Ghana, West Africa, a son of Gideon and Esther Lawer-Yolar who survive him in Morgantown.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by three siblings, Nathan, Paul and Kawasi; and his grandfather, Nana Opuni Amponsahteng.

Moses moved to Morgantown from Ghana, West Africa in 2010 and was a student of Suncrest Middle School. He then went on to go to Morgantown High School and graduated with the class of 2015. While there, he played soccer all four years. He continued to West Virginia University where he pursued a Business major. 

He was known to be a very lively and energetic person - always shining and beaming with smiles every moment. Entertaining others was always his priority and regardless of your mood, he could get you to crack a smile. 

He was very much loved by family and friends, colleagues, associates and all loved ones."

Friends may join the family to honor Moses's life and legacy at the Morgantown Church of Christ, 361 Scott Ave., Morgantown on Friday, June 23, 2017 from 4-8 PM, and again on Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 10 AM until the time of the funeral service at 11 AM with Pastor Matt Lowe officiating. Moses will be laid to rest at the East Oak Grove Cemetery.

Moses was in the IMAGES show choir at Morgantown High School with our daughter Morgan. He was a bight and special young man, and his loss is felt by all who knew him. God bless all of you.
