Jeffery Allen Moore was born in Visalia, California, on Dec. 21, 1960. He left his earthly body on Aug. 27, 2018, surrounded by his immediate family at home after a brief fight with pancreatic cancer. He was proceeded in death by his parents, Don and Delores Moore.
He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Linda; his son, Joshua; and his two step-daughters, Lisa Graham from Discovery Bay and Lindsay Watson from Marana, Arizona, who lovingly called him Pops. He adored his nine grandchildren and spent as much time with them as he could.
He was the youngest of six children after Walt, Danny, Margie, David and Jim.
He was self-employed and was partners with Dave Ciruli at Discovery Locks and More. If you ever had to have your locks changed, chances are it was Jeff who showed up. He loved his job, meeting new people, and wanted to get the job done right the first time. Most of his customers considered him a friend and no one was a stranger after meeting Jeff. Discovery Locks and More was named Business of the Year last year.
Jeff and Linda were both members of the Discovery Bay Lions Club. He served as president for two terms. He wanted to do more for the Lions Club so he started the annual Discovery Bay Car Show eight years ago. He loved hot rods and classic cars and the proceeds were used to purchase equipment for the Liberty High School auto shop.
He received many awards during his membership with the Discovery Bay Lions Club, including being a Melvin Jones Fellow, the highest honor you can receive. But none compared to his prized award that was given to him by Lion Bob Abbadie. It was his Golden Hammer Award for being the best stage builder when we had the fashion shows at the annual boat show.
Jeff and Linda were also members of the Rod and Wheelers car club in San Jose, and Jeff was going to head up the Discovery Bay Chapter before his passing.
Jeff was a big asset to this community, and he will be missed by all who knew him.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. RIP Jeff.
