Brian Paul Moore, 49, Altoona, passed away on Saturday, January 25, 2020, at his home due to complications from Type I Diabetes.
Brian was born at JC Blair Hospital, Huntingdon on November 6, 1970. He grew up in Williamsburg and graduated from Williamsburg High School in 1989.
After high school, Brian earned a diploma from Hiram G. Andrews Vocational Center, completing the Jewelry and Watch Repair course of study. He was employed in Clearfield as a watch repair tech for several years.
Brian then upgraded his technical skills by obtaining training in fiber optics and computer circuitry. He was subsequently employed by C-Cor Electronics in Blair County until the company moved to Mexico.
His last career position was as a KHEAA College Grant Application Customer Service Representative in Lawrence, KS for several years.
Brian was diagnosed as a four-year-old with severe (brittle) Type I/Childhood Diabetes. As an adult, he was determined to fight his disease and live and work as an independent and self-sufficient person. Eventually, however, he had to retire on disability and give up full-time employment when his condition caused frequent hospitalizations. He then returned to Blair County, where he purchased a home. Hoping to return to work, he enrolled in a degree program online through the University of Phoenix and graduated in 2013.
Brian is survived by his parents, William I. and Andrea (Phelps) Moore of Williamsburg; a half-sister, Candice Dodd of San Antonio, TX; and a step-daughter, Emily Dye of Rosedale, VA.
He was preceded in death by his brothers, Sean D. Moore and Garth Taylor Moore.
