Dennis Moran

I, Dennis Charles Moran, lost my battle with cancer on April 9, 2014.  At my side were my wife and daughter.
   I was born on August 31, 1953 to Charles H and Dolores Carver Moran in Richmond, Indiana.  I graduated from Northeastern High School, Fountain City, in 1971 and Indiana Central College in 1975. I have worked at Montgomery Wards, Beck’s Welding, Indiana Oxygen, Richmond Hardware and Weiler Welding.  
   I enjoyed watching NASCAR, gardening, planting and caring for trees, anything farming, singing, playing in the local Jazz band; playing at Glen Miller Park with the local band in the band shell on Sunday afternoons and being a handyman at home.
   Left to cherish my memory are my wife of 37 years, Cheryl Moore Moran; my daughter, Sarah Moran Lee (Robert); my grandson Robert E Lee III, who I regret not getting to see grow up.  Two brothers, Mark Moran (Robin) and Paul Moran (Jenny); mother-in-law, Carolyn Moore; nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews will also miss me.
   Waiting at the Heavenly Gates are my parents, and father-in-law, Duane Moore.
   Having chosen to be cremated, there will be a Celebration of Life and Service on at 3:00 p.m.  on Saturday, April 12 at Smith & McQuiston Funeral Home in Fountain City, with Pastor Terry Cochran speaking.
   If you can, stop by the funeral home on Saturday, April 12 between Noon and 3:00 p.m. and share a story or two with my family.
   Contributions may be made in to Help the Animals, 2101 West Main Street, Richmond, IN 47374 or the Reid Foundation for Hospice Care, 1100 Reid Parkway, Richmond, IN 47374.

Cheryl and Family,
Although we did not keep in touch after college so many years ago, I remember Dennis as a very good person. I sincerely hope the love of your family and friends will help ease your pain.  God Bless and keep you until you meet him again.

To all of Dennis' family my heart felt condolences at the loss of your precious one. I remember him at the local band practices years ago at Northeastern High, always cheering on the kids.

Dear Cheryl, Paul, Mark, and family members,

We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Dennis' passing.  His battle with cancer had not been known to us.  He was a good man which is not surprising since you all came from really good parents.  I am sure you will all miss him a lot but I am also sure you have many, many, good memories to help you through this very difficult time and keep him in your thoughts and hearts forever.  It is always very sad to see good people leave this world so young.  Please take care and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
