On Feb 24, 2021, Northwest Georgia SORBA lost a good friend and a giant in the trail advocacy community. Marcus W Moore began volunteering for SORBA in 2010. Quickly, he joined the board of directors for NWGA Sorba and served as an officer for many of those years. Marcus was also a certified sawyer for the National Forest Service and could be found spending many weekends cutting trees off the trails around the Northwest Georgia area. He especially loved working close to his home on the Pinhoti trail around John’s mountain and in the Dry Creek trail system. His signature, MM can be found on many of the downed trees that Marcus removed through the years. Marcus was a quiet man that never boasted about his work ethic or his contributions. However, he was a man that never backed down from hard work or trail advocacy. He was always willing to do whatever the chapter or the task required of him. Equally, he was well loved in his community as a veterinarian. He spent most of his career working for Dalton Animal Care and was considered a caring and knowledgeable vet. His sons would say he always looked for opportunities to learn new things.
Marcus is survived by two sons and daughters in law, Allen and Caroline Moore, Jacob and Bri Moore; a brother, Curtis Moore and sister, Susan Moore McGann.
If you ever ride or hike along the Pinhoti and you spy a double MM carved into a tree where one once lay, tip your hat to Mr. Marcus, aka Mighty Marcus.
