Obituary for William Sebastian Moore
William Sebastian Moore of Madison, MS, passed away on May 12th, 2018 in his home. He was 90 years old.
Born in D’Lo, MS, Sebastian lived with his family in Ruleville, Hattiesburg, and finally in Jackson where his parents built a home on Fortification Street that remains there today. Sebastian served in the US Navy in 1946/47 and again in 1953/54. He attended Ole Miss where he received his undergraduate degree in 1950 and his law degree in 1954. Sebastian practiced criminal law for 43 years.
Sebastian will be lovingly remembered by his son Thomas Bryant Moore(Mary Beth); son Nathan Frissell Moore(Cathy) and two grandchildren Emily Moore Cathy (Luke) and Matthew; step-daughter Lynn Tighe Campbell (Laddie) and two grandchildren Brooke and Rebecca as well as two great grandchildren Jackson and Grey; step-son Bowman Stirling Tighe, Jr,(Sylvia) and two grandchildren Tara Hallie Ware(William) and Stirling; and by his sister JoAnn Tull. Sebastian was predeceased by wife of 56 years Lou Adelaide Frissell Moore in 2016 and his son David Howard Moore in 2011.
The past 18 months Sebastian has been cared for by two remarkable and loving individuals- Bertha Coleman and Connie Miller. Thank you both.
Lastly, the Family as well wants to acknowledge and thank my parent’s dear friend Julie Ann Epps for her valuable assistance, friendship and comfort to him until the end.
Visitation will be held on Sunday May 20th at 1:30 PM at Saint James Episcopal Church in Oak Ridge Hall with a Funeral Service following at 2:30.
In lieu of flowers Sebastian wished that all memorial contributions go to Saint James Episcopal Church.
