JEFFERSON - Caleb Steven Moore, 19, of Jefferson, entered into rest Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
Mr. Moore was born in Athens, the son of Mitchell Steven Moore and Sherry Clark Moore of Jefferson, Georgia. Mr. Moore worked in retail at Wilson’s Leather & Polo and is preceded in death by a Grandfather, Sonny Clark.
Caleb ran both track and cross country and enjoyed participating in Boy Scouts, attaining the rank of Life Scout. He was a voracious reader who loved to learn, and had a vast knowledge of history including World War II and the War Between the States. And good advice. He was interested in politics and loved to debate current issues with others.
He was handsome and tall, standing 6’7”, and took pride in his snazzy sense of style – even when his parents disagreed. Younger children and animals naturally gravitated to Caleb because of his gentle spirit. His nephew Ryan thought he was a funny guy, and his friends remember him as a source for a good laugh or good advice. He was intelligent, empathetic, big-hearted, and a genuine, kind soul. He was a true gentleman who will be greatly missed by all.
Survivors in addition to his parents are a sister, Cherie Iler Wall and her husband Wesley, Watkinsville. Nephews, Ryan and Lucas Wall. Grandmothers, Sandra Clark of Bogart and Kathy Terry of Athens. Aunts and uncles, Susanne Hester of Jefferson and Patti and Marty Dowdy of Greensboro, Greg and Kim Moore of Mt. Airy, Justin and Paige Terry of Jacksonville, Fla., and Adam and Robin Terry of Atlanta.
Funeral services were held Sunday, March 19, at Jefferson Church, 267 Mahaffey Street, Jefferson, Georgia with The Revs. Mark Mobley and Nick Dalton officiating with burial in Woodbine Cemetery in Jefferson.
Memorials may be made to the Jackson County Humane Society, P.O. Box 567, Jefferson, Georgia 30549.
