---- — Karl F. Moore Jr., of Burghill, passed away at 2:12 p.m. Friday, June 21, 2013, in the emergency room of Sharon Regional Health System following a sudden illness. He was 54.

A 1976 graduate of Brookfield High School, he was proud to serve his country in the Army.

In his spare time, he enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle; working his Sudoku puzzles, crosswords and picture puzzles; taking road trips; going to the Jamboree in the Hills; listening to country music, especially Hank Williams Jr.; sitting on the front porch drinking his hazelnut coffee; and cheering on his Cleveland Browns.

Survivors include his mother, Betty, Burghill; two daughters, Stephanie Moore, Lexington, Ky.; and Hanna Rose Moore, Hubbard; his sister, Debra Schuller and her husband Larry, Mercer; two grandsons, Benjamin Moore and Caden Horne; his maternal grandmother, Ann Voyda, Hermitage; two uncles, Charles Voyda, Ebensburg, Pa.; and Robert Voyda and his wife Gail, Burghill; three nephews, Jeremy and Justin Moore, and Larry “Goob” Schuller Jr.; his great-nephew and “sidekick” Landon Moore; his stepsister, Vicki Cathcart, Sharon; and his companion, Donna McConnell and her children, Sara and Joshua.

Ira was preceded in death by his father; his brother, Gary Moore; his paternal grandparents, William and Goldie Moore; his maternal grandfather, Charles Voyda; his stepfather, Clayton “Steve” Mortimer; an uncle, William Moore; and an aunt, Shirley Grow.
