Glen Moon, longtime youth coach in Woodbury, died Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013, surrounded by friends and family.
Friends are going to recognize Moon during halftime of Friday night’s basketball game between East Ridge and Woodbury. The event calls for athletes he coached over the years to come down to the court at Woodbury High School and honor him. The game starts at 7:15 p.m.
Friend John Griffin said Moon had an endearing personality and loved sports, his kids and his family.
Moon and his pals could often been seen in the back row of stadiums or bleachers at various sporting events in Woodbury, said Griffin, who coached one of Moon’s sons.
“Just a great guy,” Griffin said. “A great outlook on life. Always a smile.”
Moon last spring told Patch he was at peace with his situation.
“You can cry or you can laugh,” Moon said. “I choose to laugh.”
