Kevin C. Moore – January 3, 2018

Kevin Charles Moore, 59, of St. Marys, Georgia, passed peacefully into eternal rest on January 3, 2018 in his home. Kevin was the son of the late John Pease Moore and Mary Loretta Dodds Moore.

Kevin was a recently retired GS15 for the Department of Defense and was always “dedicated to the Fleet”. His work in Civil Service took him around the world. Kevin loved to live life to the fullest. He always made sure he was surrounded by his family and friends. Kevin was an avid boater, spending most of his time out on the water. He loved college football. His two favorite teams were the Clemson Tigers and the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Kevin always loved to make people laugh and smile by telling jokes and stories in his very distinctive drawl. In fact, his stories, jokes, and drawl are how most people will remember him. Kevin always was looking out for others and would help in anyway he could. He was a great husband, father, brother, and friend. Kevin made a lasting impression on everyone he met. He was truly a beautiful soul.

Kevin is survived by his wife, Emily, and their daughters, Amy Moore and Taylor and her husband, Zeke Wade, his eight brothers, sisters, and their spouses: Nancy and Steve Hesler, Patty and Danny Smith, John Moore, David and Pam Moore, Janet Moore, Marcia and David Saari, Jimmy and Mary Moore, Molly and Mark Lanning, and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

Memorial services will be held Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 4:00 pm at Allison Memorial Chapel in St. Marys.  A Celebration of Kevin’s Life will follow the services at Stable Alley Bar-B-Q, Co., behind the French Quarter in downtown St. Marys.

Allison Memorial Chapel and Funeral Home of St. Marys is in charge of arrangements.

    My prayers and thoughts are with you, Emily and for the girls and his family. I was in stock when Lisa Allen called me and told me the sad news. I always loved being in both yours and Kevin’s company. Loads of fond memories I carry with me. I hope peace comes quickly for you and the girls.

    As we always said whenever we called it a night, “like a brother”…..As time goes by and it becomes more precious, we like to spend it with those who enrich our lives and make us smile. Kevin will always be at the top of that list. Will miss you dearly my friend and I’m working on “not being such a Yankee”. Love you like a brother Kevin……H

    Emily. Betty and I am so sorry for your loss. We loved Kevin very much. You both were some of the first people I met when I moved here. I am just now finding out about this the evening of the memorial service or we would have been there. We pray for you and your daughters. Again we are so saddened by this. We love you.
