John David Moore was born on June 16, 1941 in Stilesboro, Georgia to the late James Moore and Annie Ruth Edwards Moore. At an early age, David was baptized at Shiloh Baptist Church by Reverend W.E. Stephenson. He later attended Full Gospel Apostolic Church in Kingston, Georgia under the leadership of Brother C.E. Wilkey.
He was educated in the Bartow County School System. David was a diligent worker and over the course of his life he worked in various industries. He worked for Kennestone Hospital, Stratton Industries and Canty Janitorial Service; he was later employed by Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta, Georgia for twelve years and at Mission Road Elementary School in Cartersville, Georgia for fifteen years until his retirement in 2015.
David was never one to be idle; therefore he maintained a lawn care service for many years, as he took pride in his meticulously manicured lawns. Affectionately known as "Little John" by his friends and family, David showed himself to be friendly wherever he went, and he never met a stranger. He had an illuminating sense of humor that could lighten a room or a heavy burden; he was the life of the party. He was well known and respected within his community.
David leaves to cherish his memory, a devoted wife of 43 years, Evelyn Martin Moore; sisters, Romonia (Moore) Jones and Janice (Moore) Dillard of Cartersville, GA.; brother, Mark A. Moore, Cartersville, GA.; aunts, Jean Jones (Josh),Mary Moore, Cartersville, GA., and Annie Ruth Edwards , Jacksonville, FL.;sisters-in-law, Maxine Weems (Bennie), Cartersville,GA., Christine Moore, Kennesaw, GA., Dorothy Miller, Ethel M.Johnson, and Marilyn Martin all of Cartersville, GA.; brothers-in-law, Will Hutchens, Cartersville, GA., Bobby J. Martin (Charon), Las Vegas, NV. and Ernest Martin (Mildred), Cartersville, GA., and a host of other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
