  • I had the privilege of caring for Mark in the Cardiology Department at Knox Community Hospital for many years. He was a great man and my life was enriched by our paths crossing on this side of heaven. My sincere sympathy to the family for their loss.

  • “My get up and go has got up and went”. He always made me smile.
    Sending prayers to Mark’s family.

  • Deepest condolences to Mr. Moore’s family. I had the privilege to be able to call Mark my friend. I met Mr. Moore at the Public Library of Mt. Vernon, where I am employed (he had such a love for books and knowledge). It was always a joy to see him come through the library doors . He would type us up papers of little things he would want us to know informative things (still have most of them). I would go to KCH to pick-up my mother lunch or dinner and there Mark would be having his meal sometimes with his friend and sometimes alone, but he never was truly alone cause he made friends where ever he was. He will be deeply missed but never forgotten. He enriched so many lives. REST IN PEACE my FRIEND.
