He was married to Nancy Griffin Moreland and had two children, a boy & a girl. He was a delivery driver for Mathis Dairy in Atlanta, GA up until he could no longer work due to his diabetes. Later in life, after divorce, he remarried Jean Stone Moreland and lived out his years happily until he lost his battle with kidney disease in 2012. At the time of his death, he was survived by his wife, daughter, son, step-daughter, son in laws, one daughter in law, four grandchildren, five step-grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. My Dad was my hero. I was a Daddy’s girl for sure. He was very funny, loving, patient, handsome and a very hard worker. He served a second tour for his country which he did not have to do. I am very honored and proud to have him included in this memorial. He did not die in Vietnam but he did die because of his service in Vietnam.
