Lynn Marion Moore died peacefully in his home on November 15, 2016, in Murrieta, Calif. at the age of 78.
Lynn is survived by his wife, Jan Moore of Murrieta; children, John Cleaon Moore of Camarillo, Calif., and Stephanie Keri-Lynn Hamilton of Murrieta; his brother, Michael Moore, of Bishop, Calif., and step-daughter, Lisa McDonald, of Costa Mesa, Calif.. He is preceded in death by his mother, Violet Geneva Moore, of Huntington Beach, Calif.; and father, Emmett E. Moore, of Sterling, Va.
Lynn was born on February 21, 1938 in Dearborn, Mich. to Violet Geneva Moore (Armstrong, Ontario CN) and Emmett E. Moore (Wayne, Ky.). Following high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps., performing his training at Camp Pendleton, Calif.
Lynn’s service as a Marine took him to several countries in Asia, where he participated in land and sea exercises during the period between the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. During his military time, he married his first wife, Donna Anderson, and fathered three children, of which two survivors are John Cleaon Moore and Stephanie Keri-Lynn Hamilton (Kerry).
Lynn’s third child, Timothy Gerard Moore, born on the same day of his birthday, February 21, 1963, passed away during the first year of life, November 25, 1963, three days after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. While our nation grieved, Lynn and his family’s sadness were compounded with the loss of his son.
Through it all, John and Kerry remember Lynn as a supportive father who encouraged everyone to become the best person possible. His wife of over 20 years, Jan Moore, brought greatly needed joy and love to Lynn’s life. It was during these years while supported by Jan, that Lynn faced retirement and worked his hardest at being a good husband, father, and friend to others.
Lynn was discharged honorably from military duty and joined an electrical contracting business in Downey, Calif. While there, he performed for years, teaching himself the necessary skills to be awarded a contracting license, and subsequently started his own business, Annapolis Electric, located in Huntington Beach, Calif.
Lynn ran his business for decades covering areas throughout Southern California. His determination and strong work ethic allowed him to serve customers well into his seventies.
