Christopher Martin Moon, born September 14, 1947 Pomfret CT, died peacefully, with his wife Inez of 44 years by his side at his home in Danielson, CT on January 12th 2021.
Chris was one of five Moon brothers born in this order: Gary, Russel, Peter, Chris, and Dana, and son of Edward Moon III and Leonore Martin Moon.
As a man of few words, Chris’s stolid nature led him to a life of caring for cows, chickens, peach and apple orchards, and farms. He loved to be outdoors. Once, while skipping work to go fishing in the Connecticut River north of Hartford, he caught the largest salmon of the day; the accomplishment was covered by the newspapers.
His preoccupation of fixing what he could collect and salvage, his steady endurance of the challenges along the way, and the boundless mutual love shared in his marriage to Inez sustained him through a 25-year journey with cancer.
He is survived by his wife Inez, stepchildren Jack Underwood and Cheryl Thomas, grandchildren Sarah, Stephanie, Gregory, Jason, Grant, as well as a son and a daughter from a previous marriage.
Chris will be interned at Christ Church Pomfret cemetery. A remembrance at the graveside will be held in the Spring with the Rev. Alon White officiating.
Donations in his memory may be made to The Red Cross, The Alzheimer Association, or an organization of your choice.
