In memorium: LeRoi Moore 1961-2008

Dave Matthews Band is one of my favorite bands. They are the only band that I have seen live front row, center. I heard about this on the radio, and felt that I needed to pass this on. You can get more information from their website.

We are deeply saddened that LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, August 19, 2008, at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from his June ATV accident on his farm near Charlottesville, Virginia. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program.

We would like to take a moment at this sad time to thank everyone for the outpouring of condolences and notes celebrating LeRoi’s life. Thank you for the many inquiries we have received about making a gift in LeRoi's name. A fund has been created in honor of LeRoi Moore in support of charities that reflect both his spirit and passion. Donations via check referencing the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation for the LeRoi Moore Memorial Fund" may be mailed to: Charlottesville Area Community Foundation PO Box 1767 Charlottesville, VA 22902 Donations may also be made online by clicking here.
