Curtis Moore Obituary

Curtis Dale Moore (62) of Salisbury, North Carolina passed away on February 22, 2024 at home from natural causes. Curtis was born October 27th, 1961 in Iredell county, North Carolina. Curtis was raised by his mother Helen Mahaffey Mash and he took on the role of caregiver for his siblings at an early age. Curtis was the oldest of four, his surviving sisters Sharon, Karon, and Colleen held a special place in his heart. He was voted Mr. Southview and Biggest Clown in high school in addition to playing basketball for the school team. 

Curtis had a great desire to become a father and his prayers were answered when baby girl Hannah made her appearance in 1988, sharing the same birthday as dear old dad. Their joint birthdays were special and he always said that she was his greatest birthday gift. 

Curtis had a larger than life personality and never had trouble making a friend. He was described by those who knew him as intelligent, funny and quick to deliver a quip. 

Curtis worked through many jobs and professions in his life. He held positions in sales, hospitality, management and more. Following a severe injury, Curtis looked for a new position that he could physically continue to do. He uncovered a passion for supporting individuals as a Direct Support Professional. Curtis worked in this field for more than 15 years supporting different communities but was really connected to the autism community and advocated strongly for these individuals. He was most recently employed with GHA Autism Supports and was beloved by coworkers.  

Curtis is survived by his spouse of 17 years Michael Moore, his only daughter Hannah Moss, and fur babies Cooper D and Sadee Blu. 

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Curtis’ former employer GHA Autism Supports at P.O. Box 2487, Albemarle, NC 28002. Please indicate that the donation is for the ‘day program’.
