The Sonons would like to express our condolence to the entire Russ Moore family. He coached my daughters, Amy and April, back in the late 90s at Reading High. We are very sadden by his passing. My girls loved him so much as a person and coach. They always remember how he made them laugh to relax them in tight situations during a match. I will miss the conversations we had since those days about tennis and life in general. He was a such a nice guy and a good hearted person who was dedicated to a Reading High tennis program. I had just spoke with him at the courts shortly before his passing and just can't believe he is gone. This breaks my heart and is bringing tears my my eyes as I type this. I will sorely miss my friend.
Sincerely,
Skip Sonon

I am so sorry to hear about Russ' passing. I have known him for a few years through COR tennis, and have found him to be the most enjoyable, gentle and kind person. He has given so much to the game of tennis and to the community; he was a good man and a good spirit! He will be missed!

My sincere sympathy to the family, Russell was a past co-worker of mine and a tennis coach to my daughter. He had a huge heart and I will miss running in to him and reminiscing. May he rest in peace

He made a difference at Riverside Elementary School and he will not be forgotten. He was a true gentleman and I respected his passion, commitment, and sportsmanship. Deepest sympathy.
