Peyton Johnson Moore, 9, son of Noah John Robert and Jennifer Leigh Moore of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, passed away on Tuesday, June 4, 2013. A Celebration of Peyton's Life will be held Saturday, June 8, 2013 in the Ministry Center of St. Andrews Church - Mt. Pleasant, 440 Whilden Street, at 2:00 pm. Inurnment will follow in Mount Pleasant Memorial Gardens. The family will greet friends in Sams Hall of St. Andrews Church - Mt. Pleasant following the inurnment. Arrangements by J. HENRY STUHR INC. MOUNT PLEASANT CHAPEL.

Peyton was born September 10, 2003 in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, and was a student at Mt. Pleasant Academy and formerly at The O'Quinn School in Mt. Pleasant. He loved sports and being outdoors and was a member of The Mt. Pleasant Track Club, the Charleston Running Club, Charleston Runs, and USA Track and Field. Always wanting to encourage others, he was a supporter of the Injured Marines Semper Fi Fund, and when running, wanted to recognize those who were supporting any event. Not one to sit around, Peyton was also a member of the International Juggler's Association, the Cub Scouts, and was a strong athlete. He was a member of the Mt. Pleasant Redskins Championship Football Team, qualified and competed in the USA Track & Field 2012 National Junior Olympic Championship, and was the number one Javelin Thrower in the State of South Carolina for nine and ten year olds. And, even at his young age, he was an inspiration by serving as a running coach for adults in Couch to 5k, tutored other students, and was the leading scorer on his basketball team this past year. Even with all of Peyton's love of sports from kayaking to swimming, boating to football, he also loved school and his teachers, making straight A's and holding perfect attendance. He was recognized for the Principle's Honor Roll. Peyton's family, however, was number one! He loved to be with his grandparents on their boat, swim off their dock, run with his dad, and camping and spending hours talking with his mama about life and love.

Peyton is survived by his parents, Noah and Jennifer Moore of Mount Pleasant, SC; his maternal grandparents, Stewart and Paula Johnson of Mt. Pleasant, SC; his paternal grandmother, Phyllis Moore of Morehead, KY; and his aunts, Robin Donehue and her husband, Kevin of Morehead, KY, Regina Stamper and her husband, Jeff of Morehead, KY, Joan Robinson and her husband, James of Indianapolis, IN, and Rachel Ragland and her husband, Roy of Mt. Sterling, KY. He also is survived by a host of loving and adoring family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Robert William Moore.

Memorials in Peyton's name may be made to Mt. Pleasant Academy PTA Teacher's Fund, 605 Center Street, Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464, or the Mt. Pleasant Youth Track Booster Club, c/o Tami Dennis, 6 Yacht Harbor Court, Isle of Palms, SC 29451.
