Carson Alejandro Neymoss was killed tragically early Sunday morning, Nov. 9, by a drunk driver in Charleston, S.C. Carson was born in Key West on Oct. 27, 1991, the night of the Fantasy Fest parade, in a humble trailer in Poinciana Mobile Home Park.
Carson was a lively member of the Class of 2010 Fighting Conchs at Key West High School. His friends and teachers there were important in making him the young man we love and cherish.
In June 2014, Carson graduated from the Citadel Military College of South Carolina, the first Key West High School graduate to do so. After graduation, he lived in Charleston while planning his next step. His last night alive was spent with good friends before tragedy struck. The Citadel was a rigorous challenge and Carson responded to its Code of Honor, learning what duty means. The bonds Carson formed with his brothers there are ever so tight.
His family is suffering yet enveloped in the love, prayers, and thoughts of everyone concerned. The 23 years of Carson’s time here on this earthly plane were complete. Wendi, Mark, and Chantez, and all of us are deprived of his future and potentialities, yet we are also full of his infectious laughter, good humor, intelligence, concern for justice, and languidness. The Key West High School 2009 Swim Team had to invent a “Laughter Award” to honor Carson’s contributions to their group morale. His love of history, especially the history of the military, led to many adventures with his father re-enacting and interpreting the Civil War.
His mother, Wendi Ney and her son Carson were so close. Their love for each other is deep and everlasting. Carson’s older sister, Chantez, has travelled from Charlotte, N.C., to be with her family and to celebrate her brother’s life. No one could have a better older sister.
There will be a formal celebration of Carson’s life at the Botanical Gardens this Friday, Nov. 14, at 5 p.m. Bring a happy memory to share. Make sure to tell your loved ones that you care about them.
