Fort Worth, Texas - Motorcycle enthusiastic, Army veteran, career police officer, husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather Cecil Calvin Moon, 76, of Fort Worth, died peacefully in his sleep on January 11, 2021. Cecil, son of the late Lonnie and Grace Hitt, is survived by his wife of almost 27 years, Linda Shipp Moon.

Cecil was a proud member of the Fort Worth Police Department for 33 years. Count yourself lucky if you ever heard one of his legendary beat stories in his thick Texas accent. The family will have a memorial celebration of his life at a later date, when the time is appropriate. He donated monthly to St. Jude Children's Hospital; in lieu of flowers, please continue his kindness in the form of a donation, or to the Fort Worth Police benevolence fund.
