Michael Warren Moore, 56, of Lexington Park died Jan. 23, 2013, at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born Dec. 19, 1956, in Alexandria, Va., he was the son of Helen Joyce (Hare) Ewansky and the late Warren Eson Moore.

He and his family lived in St. Mary’s County for about 16 years after a military transfer to Patuxent River Naval Air Station from San Diego. He loved his career as an emergency room tech. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He was longtime member of the North-South Skirmish Association and enjoyed attending events in Winchester, Va. At the time of his death, he was deputy commander of St. Mary’s Light Infantry, a skirmish team. As a descendent of Civil War soldiers, he enjoyed visiting Civil War battlefields. Gettysburg was his most-visited site. He would talk to anyone about Civil War weaponry and always handed out bullets from the guns that he shot in competition. He also enjoyed singing karaoke at local bars.

He was a member of the choir at his family’s church, Trinity Lutheran Church in Lexington Park. He also enjoyed woodworking and photography.

He retired from the U.S. Navy after 20 years of service.

He is survived by his wife, Genia Marie (Luekan) Moore of Lexington Park; his mother of Sunrise, Fla; daughter, Kayla Elizabeth Moore (Shean) of Lexington Park; and siblings, Joyce Belanger of Tallahassee, Fla., Joseph Mullen (Becky) of Pensacola, Fla., and Melanie Van Hasselt (Vince) of Plantation, Fla. He was preceded in death by his father.

The family will receive friends Saturday, Feb. 2, from 3 to 4 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lexington Park, where a memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. The Rev. Roger Schoolcraft will officiate. A dinner will follow the service.
