Mr. Jonathan Brice Moore Jr., 52, passed away Thursday, Aug. 25, 2022, at the Citadel in Nassawadox.
Jon was born March 31, 1970, at Westover AFB in Chicopee, Mass., and was the son of Jonathan B. Moore Sr. and Honey (Helenann) Koch Moore of Church Neck in Machipongo. Jon spent most of his early years in Princess Anne, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, before moving to Virginia’s lower Eastern Shore when he was fourteen. He attended Broadwater Academy, Northampton High School, and Eastern Shore Community College. For over 30 years Jon worked as a Regional Sales Rep in the fire service industry covering territories in the North, South, and Mid Atlantic areas.
Jon was known for his passion in whatever he undertook and had a strong work ethic. He is remembered by his family, friends, and work associates for his funny, kind, and loving soul. Jon was artistic, and this talent now lives on in his 9-year-old daughter. Jon was more than passionate about fishing, and this passion has carried through to his 12-year-old son.
The four seasons before his death, Jon spent at Bethel Colony of Mercy in Lenoire, N.C., where his walk with the Lord and helping others became a new passion and will live on through those he helped there.
In addition to his parents, Jon is survived by his two children, Brice Stundis Moore and Hadley Stundis Moore of Plainville, Mass.; his sister, Heather Travis and her husband, Nathan, of Cape Charles, and their children, Mollie, Reid, and Parker; his best fishing buddy and brother, David, and his wife, Heather, of Wilmington, N.C., and their children, Harrison and Mary-Charles; his “special Uncle Bob” Koch and his wife, Pat, of Springfield, Mass.; his Uncle Rick Moore and his wife, Karen, of Virginia Beach; his Aunt Barbara Heilman Koch of Jupiter, Fla.; the mother of his children, Kelly Stundis Moore of Plainville, Mass., and several cousins and their families. He was predeceased by his infant sister, Hannah Charles Moore and his Uncle Jack and Aunt Carolyn Koch, formerly of Woodbury, Conn.
