All Hail the Mayor of the Walking Capital of Texas
Fit City Tyler pays tribute to one of our coalition members who recently passed.
Bob Moore was a vocal local for kids and adults of all ages to walk. It is a convenient and accessible form of exercise that he practiced everyday in his hometown of Canton.
In 2013, the Texas House of Representatives passed a resolution that was authored by Senator Bob Deuell and sponsored by State Representative Dan Flynn to officially designate the City of Canton as the official walking capitol of Texas.
"Bob Moore was one of a kind and a good friend to anyone he met," says Dave Berry, cofounder of Fit City Tyler. "His story was one of personal triumph over health issues, an unbelievable eagerness to share the secrets he had learned about walking and healthy living, as well as a deep love for his community of Canton. Bob will be missed."
