Judge Bob Moon

The Chattanooga community is mourning the unexpected death on Thursday of General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon at the age of 60.

A Chattanooga native, he was a graduate of the University of Tennessee. He earned a law degree from Memphis State Law School.

He practiced law in Hamilton County and was a judge in Signal Mountain for 13 years. Moon was appointed Hamilton County General Sessions Court judge in 1996. He was elected to the post in 1998 and re-elected in 2006, without opposition.

Moon was conscientious in his judicial duties and strove to do the right thing.

He was an idealist, a gentleman of good character and a sincere Christian.

He also was a hunter, fisherman, traveler, antique car enthusiast and writer.

Moon was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga, the Chattanooga Downtown Rotary Club, the Harrison Ruritan Club and the Chattanooga and Tennessee Bar associations.

He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Debbie I. Moon.

Funeral services will be held at First Presbyterian today at 3 p.m., with Dr. Fred Steelman and the Rev. Chris Ehlers officiating.

Moon will be remembered for his ardent love of Chattanooga and his devotion to administering justice as he saw it in General Sessions Court.

Moon according to the editor, was a gentelman of good charactor and a sincere Christian.

Well that says a lot coming from the editor who condones killing of babies, mothers and the elderly!

He or you are none of those things,actions and words speak volumes about you two, and being a racist bigot and condoning murder has nothing to do with Jesus or being Christian.

The porn watching on the computer was probaly to much to put on that cold ticker, that cold cold heart of his, you might want to lay off it yourself

You can yell it from the top of the CTFP or the Courthouse rooftops about how Christian you are,but that does'nt make it true!

Action and words tells me who you two are, and you need to go into a closet and repent, not in a public forum, for you have already recieved your reward. You condone harassment by your no.1 man and Moon was a complete Bigot, and his unfairness held no bounds and was the rudest man i have ever met.

I'm sure all of you and his Peers have wonderful glowing things to say about this creep, but if you were just a regular Joe, and was black or a woman or God forbid Hispanic not so much. About like you "the Editor", funny how things can come and bite you in the arse, ever hear of Karma, your days coming and i would hate to be you explaining to Jesus, how all the murdering of the babies was sooo the Right thing to do and how you condoned it all, good luck with that one!!!

Taco Moon, may you be eating a heaping Taco of poo!

potcat, I sure hope you do not consider yourself a Christian. Saying the things you have about this man on the day his family laid him to rest, is not very Christian-like. You should think about the people he left behind that are mourning before you spew your harsh words on the Internet. Hopefully, I will be the only family member that will read your crap today. Lord knows, they have enough to be upset about today.

From Lee Anderson: "The Chattanooga community is mourning the unexpected death on Thursday of General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon at the age of 60." Well, not the entire community. Your editorial cartoonist is laughing it up. How about an editorial about tacky, tasteless cartoons, Mr. Anderson, or Mr. Barrett? If a TV station or network was lampooning a popular public servant within 48 hours of his death, you would be all over it. Will we be reading some commentary about this awful journalistic practice on the TFP editorial page? Or will you fall silent?
