Obituary for Luther Horace "Sonny" Moore, Jr.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Mr. Luther Horace Moore, Jr., age 69 of 131 Viola Avery Street, Thomson, GA departed his earthly life on Friday, March 8, 2019 at his residence. Our beloved Luther, Jr. made his transition from labor to reward peacefully with loved-ones at his bedside. He was born on Tuesday, November 1, 1949 in Thomson, GA to both the late Rosella Sheppard and Luther Horace Moore, Sr. Luther, Jr. received his education by attending the former McDuffie Training School, which changed its name on Sunday, April 21, 1963 to R. L. Norris High School of Thomson, GA. He was a graduate of the R. L. Norris High School with the Class of 1967. Luther, Jr. enjoyed working, and he worked for Milliken & Co, Kingsley Plant in Thomson, GA until he retired after sixteen years of dedicated service. He was a member of Paynes Baptist Church in Mesena, GA, a former member of the Saint James A.M.E. Church (currently known as Greater Saint James A.M.E. Church) of Thomson, GA.

On Friday, December 28, 1984 in Thomson, GA, Luther Horace Moore, Jr. was united in holy matrimony to Joyce Mathis. From this union, one child was born. Life without music for Luther, Jr. was not meant to be. Music was simply one of his greatest pleasures in life. It soothed his soul. When not listening to music, you may find his wife, Joyce reading the bible to him on a regular basis to strengthen his soul. Our beloved, Luther Horace Moore, Jr. was a very kind spirit with a heart of gold. To say that he’ll be missed is an understatement; he’ll be missed beyond measure, but never ever forgotten. He is preceded in death by a son, Detavious Deangilo Moore; a sister, Dorothy Louise Moore; one aunt, Bertha Moore Reid; a father-in-law, Willie Tom Mathis; a sister-in-law, Vernita Shorty and a brother-in-law, Gregory Crawford.
