Rugene Flurnoy Moore was born on August 22, 1957 to the late Mr.
Sellers Moore and Mrs. Ollie (Butler) Moore in Statesboro, Georgia. He
grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he lived with his parents and
sister, Selerya Moore until he became a member of the Bison family at
Howard University in Washington D. C. Rugene earned a degree in
Communications and quickly began an adventure exploring the world of
Journalism from Washington D.C. to Florida, Louisiana and back to
Florida where he settled roots. He married the love of his life Sherry
(Fitzpatrick) Moore on June 28, 1986 and embraced a beautiful bond
with daughter, Janeen (Fitzpatrick) Freeman as well as Stepdaughter,
Mia Lucas; whom both learned from him how to live life to the fullest with
no regrets while spreading love every step of the way through acts of
kindness and selflessness. Rugene also expanded their horizons by
exposing them to various forms of art, culture, literature, and music.
With his bold and quick witted sense of humor, Rugene never met a
stranger and he brought a ray of sunshine amongst all while sharing
compassion and love through his amazingly colorful stories. Always up
for a challenge he embraced life to the fullest and made the most of
every situation with optimistic encouragement that no matter what all is
well. All were welcomed to share a seat at his table to experience the
most tantalizing delights with flavor so bold that it would appease the
pickiest palette this side of the Bayou. His larger than life smile, love of
cooking as well as his intriguingly in depth conversations will be greatly
missed by all. Rugene F. Moore was a caring and loved husband,
brother, son, son-in-law, brother-in-law, father, father-in-law, grandfather,
uncle, cousin and friend.
