Mr. Moore was a teacher and a great coach in Greensboro and Cary NC. “When discipline left the classroom, so did he”, he later taught at Polk Youth Center in Raleigh.

Lindsey loved his family and getting to know people. He knew no stranger. He loved his pets and he loved to dance. He put his faith into action over a lifetime of helping others.
