Jeffrey David Moore

A beautiful soul left this earthly existence on April 11,

2014 after many years of anguish and torment.

Jeffrey David Moore, born on Dec. 8, 1977, lived most of his short life in Mariposa. He attended Mariposa Elementary School and graduated from Mariposa County High School in 1996.

Jeffrey received many honors and accolades in school, including student of the year, senior class president and selection to the all-district basketball team by the Modesto Bee.

He holds records, some of which still stand 18 years later, in basketball and track.

Jeffrey was a popular and well-liked student who was gifted in art and good in music as well as a stellar athlete and leader.

The hand of fate dealt Jeffrey a terrible blow in the fall of his 18th year as he was touched by a terrible, devastating mental illness, which robbed him of a very promising life. He struggled against this dark foe, even completing two years of college. Then came years of anguish, fear and turmoil.

His fight is over. He is free.

Jeffrey is survived by his parents David and Sharon Moore, his brother Michael, sister-in-law Anne and his beloved niece and nephew Eva and Ian of Forestville, Calif.

A memorial service will be planned for a future date.

We love you very much. Rest in peace, Jeffrey.

So sorry to hear of your loss - and of the world's loss of such a promising young man. May he be at peace at last, and may you find peace in having shared love with him, even for such a short time.

I am so sorry. My oldest

I am so sorry. My oldest brother has suffered since his late teen years with similar issues. It is agonizing for those that love such wonderfully gifted, yet tormented souls. May you find comfort in the God that keeps your beloved son and brother until the day you join him in heaven forever.
