Gregory Moore of Pineville, NC passed away in a tragic boating accident in Lake Norman, NC on May 3, 2020. He was 41.
Born in Mt. Kisco, NY on December 19, 1978, Greg was the son of the late Howard B. Moore and Susan O’Renic Moore. He graduated from Mahopac High School in 1997 and graduated Cum Laude with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science from the College of Westchester in May of 2005.
After working a few years in the family business in Mahopac (and changing his name to Gregg in the way celebrities do), he relocated to North Carolina in 2011. There he continued his trade as a plumber, started a business and got his side hustle on with extra work.
He loved riding his motorcycle on trips as far away as Florida and Delaware and was an avid fan of the NY Mets and his beloved Dallas Cowboys. Gregg lived his life to the fullest and loved being around people! When he came home to visit, his family was always treated to a surprise … a new haircut, new beard, new tattoo, new sneakers or a new Diesel watch.
As a friend said, Gregg will always be remembered for his charming wit, brutally honest opinions and twisted sense of humor. For those who knew him best, Gregg had the ability, and the matches, to light up a room. You’ve never really caught people’s attention till you walked with Gregg, shirtless down the Boardwalk.
Gregg is survived by so many who loved him and witnessed his presence.
His beloved mother, “Saint” Susan E. Moore. He drove her crazy most times but she did share his favorite meatloaf recipe, so all was well.
His brother, Tim of Carmel, NY. They loved riding together, shared an appreciation of fine automobiles and the Fast and Furious movie series.
His sister, Mary Beth of Massapequa, NY. Partners in crime when they were younger, parties remembered that shouldn’t be spoken of, and best of all the hard-boiled eggs filled with his favorite … French’s Yellow Mustard.
His brother in law, Matt of Massapequa, NY. A friend and fellow sports fan who was banned from watching Sons of Anarchy because he didn’t have tattoos or power tools.
His niece Julia of Massapequa, NY. He loved to dote on her with cash for birthdays and will always share the ‘meow’ story.
His nephews, Jack and Lucas of Massapequa, NY. He always made them laugh, loved having them as wingmen to attract women and helped them reach the pinnacle of happiness with the gift of a preloaded Dave & Buster’s card.
Hug your family, spend time with the people you love and live life to the fullest.
Interment of Gregg’s cremains will take place at St. Lawrence Cemetery in Brewster, NY at a later date.
