Julian Carl Moore, Jr., age 67, passed away at his home in Tallahassee on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016 following a courageous battle with cancer.
Carl was born Jan. 3, 1949 in Lake City, Fla. to Carl and Doris Moore and was the oldest of four children. He grew up in Live Oak, Fla. and graduated from Suwannee High School in 1967. After high school, Carl enlisted with the United States Marines. He served in combat during the Vietnam War as a member of the CAP Unit from 1969-1970. During this time he lived in the Vietnam villages. They assisted the people of Vietnam by living among them, training them to defend their homes and engaging in civic action such as building bridges and schools, and improving crops and livestock.
After his honorable discharge from the Marines, Carl returned to Live Oak and moved to Tallahassee in 1981. He began working in the industrial supply industry in the early 1970s. He has devoted his life long career to working in the industrial supply industry.
Carl played high school football for four years at Suwannee High. Early in life he developed a love of photography. He spent his spare time in the outdoors, camping, kayaking and biking. He had a lifelong enthusiasm for motorcycles, being most proud of his current motorcycles, a 2004 Triumph Boneville and 2007 Kawasaki Versus. Carl had a passion for passing on the fundamentals for firearm safety and marksmanship to his grandchildren.
Over the years he developed a collection of fedoras; you never saw him in public without wearing one of these beloved hats.
Among one of the greatest achievements in his life is the life-long friendships that he has developed. From childhood, military career and adulthood friends, he touched the lives of many and made life-long friends that stood the test of time.
