Lawrence Nathaniel Moore, Jr. was born March 19, 1958, in Conway, South Carolina, the beloved son of the late Lawrence N. Sr. and Louise Holland Moore. He departed this earthly life on Sunday, January 22, 2023, at the age of sixty-four (64).
Lawrence affectionately known as “Larry” to the natives of Conway, SC, and “Coach” to the natives of Columbia, but he was “DADA” to his wife, Cassandra Moore.
Lawrence attended Conway High School, graduated in the Class of 1976, where he played basketball and was a member of the ACAPELLA Choir. In 1977, Lawrence joined the United States Army, then immediately reenlisted in 1981 serving through 1985. During his time in the Military, he served as Corporal/Specialist 4. He was the recipient of the Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Parachutist Badge, and the Army Achievement Medal. After completing 8 years of service and receiving an Honorable Discharge. In 1987, he moved to Columbia where he worked for Baptist Medical Center, now Prisma Health Baptist, where he met the “Lady of his life, Cassandra”, the two were united Holy Matrimony on April 27, 1991. He was a loyal and dedicated worker at Active Day, formerly known as Helping Hands for several years as a driver. Lawrence loved his place of work; the clients and their families loved him. Lawrence was planning to retire in March of 2023, but still planned to work at Active Day on an as needed basis. Lawrence was also a football coach at Alcorn Middle School, and Keenan High School, as well as Eau Claire High School where he coached track and football. Those who knew Lawrence, knew that his favorite teams were the Clemson Tigers, L. A. Lakers, and the San Francisco 49ers. He would never miss a game if he could help it.
Lawrence loved people, and all who knew him, loved his smile, and the bountiful ray of energy that he would bring into your presence. Lawrence was the kindest person you could ever have met. He never, ever met a stranger. He would start a conversation and talk to you like he had known you for years. He had an open heart and arms for all, and a lending hand, no matter who you were. He will be missed by all who loved and knew him.
He leaves to cherish his fond and precious memories to his loving and devoted wife, Cassandra L. Moore; sons, Pierre DeLorenzo Moore and LaByron DeAntonio Mosley who he raised as his own, both of Columbia, SC; two grandsons, Javier Anzel Moore of Irmo, SC; and LaBeron Deshun Mosley of Olive Branch, MS; brothers, James Earl (Henrietta) Holland of Columbia, SC; and Anthony Jerome Moore of Conway, SC; a host of uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins and friends, all of whom join the family in sharing the grief caused by his departure.
