    Hollywood FloridaI would like to send prayers and sympathy to Koesterman family, and especially to his son who I meet at the memorial at TY Park in Hollywood. We had a very good celebration of life for Moose.

    Moose, had a way of putting you at ease. From the first time I meet him you knew what a kind, friendly and hardworking man he was. It was evident how much he cared for his son as he always spoke his mind. Moose always seemed to find a positive way to put things. Moose had a positive effect on many and he will be very much missed by many.

    Key West FloridaMoose was a best friend and treated me like a brother. We were co-workers together at Coca Cola and when I transfered to Miami and the Florida Keys from Kansas City, Moose opened his home to me for a place to live. Moose had a big wonderful heart. He talked often about how proud he was of his son and how he loved his family. He was a wonderful person and will always be remembered and missed. My deepest sympathy to his family. May you rest in peace.

    My condolences to Mooses Family. I worked with Moose @ Coca-Cola down in So. Fl. for a short time. Moose trained me one day, he was intelligent and he knew his job. I can picture Moosey with his 44 oz jug of Sweet Tea. I worked stand by service at Hialeah speedway and Moose would be there watching the races. We shared some good conversation there, he was proud of his son.

    Hollywood FloridaI worked with Moose for over 8 years at Coca-Cola, I was his boss in South Dade for over 3 years, he was the most stubborn, outspoken technician in the group, but Moose had the biggest heart ever, we formed a bond quickly, we would go riding together and he always brought me back a little something from his trips. Moose was the proudest father I had ever met & Jr. was the light of his life. Moose was a kind and caring person, he loved his job, his life and everything around him, he was funny and loud & we are all going to miss everything about him.

  41. Isabel Viera says:

    Key West FloridaMoose was one of my dearest friends. I have countless memories of laughter and joy. We worked together at Coca Cola, and I had the pleasure of being his boss for two years. He spoke his mind, never editing his words and laughed with total abandonment. He spoke of his “Junior” with sheer adoration. His eyes lite when he spoke of his son. I loved when he did. It’s not often you hear a great big guy, with intimidating looks, talk about how proud he was of his Junior. Never would anyone had thought that when we met that we’d be such good friends, but friends we became, real good ones. He never gave up on me when I left Coke abruptly and didn’t want to take calls. He called me every two days, sometimes more, until I answered. I loved him. I will miss him. My deepest condolences to his mother, son, siblings and those fortunate enough to have called him friend.

  42. Terri Koesterman says:

    Shelton, WAMay you rest in peace Lynn, even though we were very distant relatives I still felt like we were family. You lived life to the fullest


    Lynn… You are in a great place now… ride, cousin, ride!!

    Aunt Carol & family… I am soo sorry for your loss. Hold those memories close. Love you
