Mario Michael-Keith Moore was born on August 7,1961, in San Francisco, CA, to James D. Moore Sr. and Marilyn Jacobs. He was the eldest of two children born to this union.
At a young age, he moved to Crowley, LA, where his great grandparents, Earl C. and Emma Wilson continued to pour life into him as a child. Upon their passing, his great aunt and uncle, Charles and Norma Jean Washington, continued the process and his family expanded with additional siblings. At an early age, he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at the Jerusalem Baptist Church. He received his education at Crowley schools, and while at Crowley High School, he excelled in sports, carpentry, welding, and was a member of the Future Farmers of America. Following his tenure in high school, Mario relocated to San Francisco, CA to pursue his passion in welding and successfully became certified as a welder.
Mario treasured and loved all of his family as they were most important to him. He would remember everyone’s birthday and would write letters to each of them with gifts included. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, hunting, and cooking whatever was the “catch of the day.” He possessed the gift of building anything just by looking at an object and then replicating it with perfection. He enjoyed playing pranks on people with jokes and loved to influence his nephews to “play fight” and imitate famous scripts, such as, “What’s up Mart’innn” from the television show, “Martin” and others.
On October 27, 2021, in Sacramento, Mario transitioned from this life into eternity. He was preceded in death by his father, James D. Moore Sr.
