Dr. Robert Keith Moore Jr., passed away suddenly on Feb. 8, 2014, at his home in Dallas, Texas. Born on April 11, 1981, in New Orleans, La., Keith was a joy to his family and an inspiration to all who knew him. He graduated from Crestview High School in 1999 as a member of the Big Red Machine and received a Bachelor of Science degree from Florida State University. Keith continued on to earn his medical degree from Tulane University.

He was a loving and devoted son, brother and friend. He enjoyed working with computers, playing video games, making music, wake boarding, good jokes and magic tricks. He was bright, curious and possessed unlimited determination to accomplish whatever projects, goals or challenges he encountered. His desire for learning and understanding was boundless, not only in the field of medicine but in all aspects of life.
