Judiciary Mourns Death of Judge Bob Moon

January 26, 2012

Hamilton County General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon died in his home overnight from what appears to be a massive heart attack. He was 60.

"Our judicial family is deeply saddened by the loss of Judge Bob Moon," said General Sessions Court Judge Ben Hall McFarlin, president of the Tennessee General Sessions Judges Conference. "Judge Moon served on the bench with great honor and dignity for many years. He was also adept at striking the right balance between serving the court, his community and spending time doing the things he enjoyed with the people he loved."

"The court system and the Chattanooga community has lost a great servant and dear friend today. His colleagues on the bench will miss him dearly and our prayers go out to his family during this difficult time," McFarlin said.

The visitation will take place on Friday, January 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the North Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home and on Saturday, January 28 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church on McCallie Avenue.
