On Saturday, May 5, 2018, Roy "Moon" Moen completed his earthly journey and was met with open arms by his Lord and savior, with whom he will stay for eternity.

Born Jan. 31, 1951, in Brooklyn, N.Y., Roy was the son of Erling and Ella Moen. Roy grew up in Lake Mohawk, Sparta, N.J.. Upon graduating from Sparta High School, Class of 1969, Roy attended Valparaiso University, where he earned a degree in youth ministry.

Roy's life was simple and was driven by his love of and faith in God. He found no greater joy than supporting his family and friends.

He met his wife of 38 years, Mary Lou Williams, in high school, with whom he shared a blessed bond that will never be broken. Together they celebrated the lives of their two children, Cecelia Manning and husband, Thomas, and Kevin Williams-Moen, as well as grandchildren.

Roy developed several long-lasting friendships that we are sure he will honor and support throughout this next phase of life. These friendships were as important to him as family because each friend was considered "family." It is this love for family and friends that inspired and drove Roy to combat years of difficult illnesses in such a selfless manner. This approach to life is what makes the void even greater to those left behind.

Roy enjoyed baseball immensely as a lifelong Yankee fan. He also enjoyed camping with family and friends. A day never went by that the house or camper was not filled with music of any and all genres, although his favorites would have to be classical, blues and jazz. The bigger the drum section, the better he loved it! He never thought drummers got the recognition they deserved! Along these lines he will be remembered and missed greatly for his sense of humor and witty retort.

Roy would not have wanted to end this piece without extending heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all those who supported him, especially in these last years of his life, specifically Liz Gernhardt, DO, Bruce Saidman, MD, Rupen Parikh, MD, Fino's Pharmacy (Dallas) and every staff member associated with these practices. Collaboratively you all supported and cheered Roy on the fight the good fight and gave him years with family and friends that he certainly would not have had otherwise. He would want you to know that he loved each and every one of you, because each of you fell into the "family" category.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday from Hugh B. Hughes & Son Inc. Funeral Home, 1044 Wyoming Ave., Forty Fort, with family friend, the Rev. Samuel Zumwalt, officiating.

Friends may call from 10 a.m. until service time on Friday.
