Russ embodied generosity and love. He will be remembered for all the heart he shared with his friends and family. He truly loved each of them – and they knew it.
On January 17, 2024, Russell Moore shed his earthly pain and made a graceful exit, surrounded by his adoring family and the love he had nurtured all of his life.
Russ’ wonderful sense of humor and cleverness were well known and will be one of his traits that will be most missed. He made every event that he was a part of more fun and could see the funny side in just about any situation. He was kind, caring and brought exuberance to family get togethers. He had a playful and childlike approach to life and fully indulged in it. Russ’ energy and resilience was admirable and contagious.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that you donate to the American Cancer Society. Please pause for Russ, have a laugh, a genuine grin and enjoy the zest of life. Russ will be terribly missed.
