David T. Moore, 63, of 155 Fairmount Ave., Sunbury, passed away from acute leukemia at Geisinger Medical Center on July 12, 2017.
He was born in Shamokin on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1954, the son of William T. and Joyce (Derk) Moore, of Turbotville.
Dave graduated from Warrior Run High School in 1972 and married Loretta Harmon on Dec. 8, 1973 in Williamsport.
Dave was self-employed and was a restoration mechanic by trade and was always fixing, restoring, or customizing a car.

He also worked for the juvenile probation foster care department.
In addition to restoring cars Dave enjoyed playing guitar and fishing.
Dave loved his family and church family at the First Baptist Church of Sunbury where he attended and was a member for many years.
In addition to his wife and parents, Dave is survived by two daughters and their husbands, Maggie and Chris Kurtz, and Mary-Grace and Dan Rearden, all of of Sunbury; three grandchildren, Nigel, Coral and Rad; his siblings, Gale Tuomisto, of Northumberland, Bill Moore, of West Hazleton, and Cathy Moore, of Montgomery; aunt, Leanna Derk, of Milton; and many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and nephews.
Friends and family may visit from 5 to 6 p.m. Monday at the First Baptist Church Fourth and Chestnut streets, Sunbury, followed by a memorial service at 6, with the Rev. David Dressler officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Dave's memory may be made to the First Baptist Church, 115 S. Fourth St., Sunbury, PA 17801.
