Born in Nassau, Huel Moss, Jr. spent the early years of his life in True Blue, Crooked Island. He lived and went to school all over The Bahamas accompanying his father and mother as they fulfilled their teaching postings in the islands of Acklins, South Andros and Eleuthera. He completed his secondary education at The University of The Bahamas and The University of Miami.
Like his parents, Huel served as an educator in the Public Service for Forty-six years, before retiring in August of 2019 … a few weeks before Hurricane Dorian. Since his retirement, his love for farming and food self-sustainability for his family, community and island has been his passion. Fruity Freddie Farms, (pepper sauces, pepper jellies, barbecue sauces, hydroponics vegetable/greens and native Bahamian fruits) was birthed from this passion.
Having resided in Abaco for more than twenty-six years, he feels comfortable identifying as an Abaconian/Bahamian…and more specifically, a ‘Treasurecayan’ or ‘Treasurconian’. After riding out Hurricane Dorian in Treasure Cay, Mr. Moss is more than willing to offer his expertise, experience, and knowledge as a board member for Abaco Strong in successfully carrying out their mission to rebuild sustainable and prosperous communities in Abaco.
Mr. Moss is a single parent divorcee and has six children. He is a Christian and is a member of the Full Gospel Assemblies of God Denomination, based in Treasure Cay. His hobbies include spending time with his children/family, farming, snorkeling, spear fishing, reading, and playing recreational sports.
