Perry O'Neil Moore Jr., 57, passed away on Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017.
He was born on Sept. 21, 1960, in Charlotte, N.C., to Vivian Vick Moore and the late Perry O'Neil Moore Sr.
Neil graduated from Gardner-Webb University on a baseball scholarship and his love for sports continued, coaching Little League baseball and football for many years.
He was currently employed with the Keith Corp., covering operations and maintenance for several of BB&T's corporate facilities in Charlotte. Neil also worked at the Charlotte Motor Speedway for many years. Neil was loyal, hardworking and could always be counted on to lend a helping hand; he was the ultimate handyman. He took his job seriously, responding to situations any time of day, even nights and weekends.
Neil was a generous man; he enjoyed giving more than receiving, and he had a talent for picking out special and unique gifts. He especially loved the holidays and always thought of fun and meaningful ways to celebrate.
Neil had a joy for cooking, especially for events he planned, always attempting new recipes. He loved sharing his enthusiasm about every aspect of the beach with his family. He and B.J. loved spending time at the lake, and Neil especially enjoyed taking out guests on his boat.
Neil enjoyed music; he was a semi-professional DJ and always created sound-tracks for every event. He was patriotic and always displayed his flag at the lake; he also loved to fish, be outdoors, go camping and watch the Carolina Panthers.
Neil was passionate about his family and loved them unconditionally.
He is survived by his son, Nick Moore and his fiancée, Ashley Horton, of Clayton, N.C.; son, Cody Moore of Boone, N.C.; mother, Vivian Moore of Indian Land; long-time companion, B.J. Denny of Greensboro, N.C., and his stepson, Daniel Gore of Hong Kong.
Neil was preceded in death by his sister, Melanie Moore; and father, Perry Moore. 
Funeral services were held at McEwen Funeral Service Pineville Chapel, with burial at Flint Hill Baptist Church.
Memorials may be made to Neil's favorite charity, Charlotte Rescue Mission.
