So sorry for Kurt’s close friends, family and co-workers. Many people in Richmond loved this man. Always a friendly smile and wave whenever I saw him in Church Hill, at yoga practice and of course, at Metzgers. Kurt, you will be missed and remembered well.

I interacted with Kurt maybe a grand total of three times. He was the kind of person who makes you think to yourself, “wow, this is a really great guy.” He mixed me cocktails, chatted about my motorcycle. But it didn’t feel like small talk. He seemed genuinely interested in making a connection. Really sad to hear this awful news. I can’t imagine how gutted his loved ones must be.

So sorry to see. Our condolences to the whole crew and the rest of Kurt’s friends and family.

To the Moon Fund

“Kurt Moon has touched so many of our lives and made us better people. He has always been there to support us and uplift us. In this time of need it would be so appreciated if you could support his family with the expenses related to his memorial services and outstanding expenses. So many people have generously offered to help in any way that they can. Financial support at this time would be a huge way to do so. Every little bit helps. Every little bit is appreciated. Please share this fundraiser with everyone. Love to all.”
