John Destin Moore, M.D., departed on June 13, 2013. He was 63.
He left those he loved with a lot of wonderful memories that they can carry with them. He was born on October 4, 1949, to Emory and Dorothy Moore in Sacramento.
After a childhood spent playing Little League baseball, bringing home stray cats and teasing his little sister Judy, he married Cindy Styles and graduated from UCD Medical School.
They made a home in Redding where he was a Family Practice physician and had three wonderful children; Colin, Derek and Libby; and later a daughter-in-law Tiffany (Derek).
John went on to marry Brenda and was a stepfather to her daughter Cami and “grandpa” to Cami’s children, Brandon and Ashley.
He had many passions during his life. He was an accomplished jazz saxophone player and an athlete participating in gymnastics, diving, baseball, skiing and golf. He also loved salmon fishing and his dogs.
His travels took him on some fishing trips to Alaska and adventures in Mexico, Hawaii and Europe. He was also not one to shy away from discussions about politics and current events.
There will be a service for John at 1 p.m., Friday, June 21, at St. Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Church, Diamond & Silver Streets in Anderson, CA.
A burial will follow at the St. Herman Monastery in Platina, west of Redding.
at 1:00 at St. Andrew Orthodox Church, 1865
