A celebration of life and ceremony have been organized for Spencer Alexander Moore, the Parksville man who died following what police deemed a hit and run in the early hours of Aug. 24.

The 32-year-old man was remembered in an obituary published in Oct. 22’s edition of The NEWS.

The obituary describes Moore as a “vibrant and loving young soul.”

“Spencer touched the lives of many people in such a genuine and loving manner; his loss will be hard to accept,” reads the obituary.

A memorial was set up on Hirst Avenue at the end of August in memory of Moore.

Flowers, letters and notes of condolences adorned an area near where Moore was struck.

A GoFundMe campaign was also set up in the weeks following Moore’s death to help offset the costs of the funeral.

Following the incident, Moore’s family had requested that his name not be released to the public.

Original reports from RCMP stated that it appears he had been struck by a vehicle. A 1999 black Ford truck was seized in relation to the crime and underwent forensic investigation.

Oceanside RCMP’s Cpl Jesse Foreman previously stated the case was currently before the Crown counsel. Since the investigation is ongoing, RCMP are unable to provide further comment.

Moore’s celebration of life will be held on Nov. 16 at 1 p.m. at the Yates Funeral Home in Parksville.
