Prew Leroy Moore

Prew Leroy Moore, 74 of Warrenton and The Plains, passed away peacefully at INOVA Fairfax Hospital with family by his side on August 5, 2019 from complications following surgery for a broken leg.  

 Prew, the son of Webb and Dorothy Moore, was born January 18, 1945, in Warrenton and was so well known throughout his lifetime for his innate friendliness, sense of humor, generosity, work ethic, and constant willingness to help others. He spent his career at VDOT where he was recognized for not missing a day of work for 30 years before retiring with a disability. 

 A gentleman beloved by his family and so many others, he is survived by his daughter, Michelle Douglas of Nathalie, VA; brothers, Russell Moore of Warrenton, Dennis Moore of Upperville; sisters, Betty Jean Appling of Huntsville, Al, Patricia Monger of Bealeton, Marjorie Moore and Hope Morison, both of Aldie; nieces and nephews Sandra Dodson, Eric Payne, Missy Barrett, Todd Appling, Alicia Shamblin, Beverly Hanback, Bonnie Sharp, Thomas Moore, and Amy Christy.  

His family would especially like to thank nurses Ashley, Hannah, and Sherisa for their compassionate and exemplary care, and long-time friend, Ernie Lumsden, who was like a brother to him.
