Mr. Charles Doyle "Fud Dud" Moon, 71, of Deep Creek Road, Bowman, passed away on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, at St. Mary's Hospital in Athens.
Mr. Moon was born in Royston on February 21, 1950, son of the late Harvey Thomas Moon and Nancy Abigail Rousey Moon. He was a proud U.S. Army Veteran having served during the Vietnam war. Charles was a retired natural gas engineer having worked for both the City of Hartwell and City of Bowman, and had previously worked in the granite industry at AGM Memorials and Southern Mausoleums. He was an avid outdoorsman who absolutely loved life - he never met a stranger! Saturdays were for being at Hartwell Speed Way enjoying dirt track racing, attending a classic car show, or being with Betty jeep riding. Charles also enjoyed his old English game bantam chickens.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death step-son, James Randal Croft; and siblings: Hubert Moon, Herman Moon, Aaron Moon, Beverly Rucker, and Darlena Carey.
