Frank D. Moon II

MoonFrankII e1505250680725

Frank Douglas ” Bookie ” Moon II was the youngest of two children born to the union of Frank ” Mike” Moon I and Delores Marie Moon on May 13, 1971.

Frank was born and raised in Rehobeth Temple church of Christ under the late Bishop Kenneth l. Bligen. Frank was a member of a number of ministries such as.. the rainbow choir, the young adult choir , the bell choir, a group he had with his family called the cousins , teenage ushers tonnage a few. Frank also sang in City wide choir as well as many other singing groups around Ohio and other states. Later in Franks adulthood he transitioned to become a member of Higher ground A.A.A where he served in many capacities there under Bishop Sherman Watkins.

Frank made many moves to pursue singing more aggressively and his last move landed him in Atlanta Georgia. Frank attended and was a member of The Cathedral of Faith C.OG.I.C where Pastor Arthur F. Mosley was his pastor. Frank was a part of the COF sanctuary choir , mass choir as well as the Med chorus. He also assisted and supported the leaders of the pastors side ministry. Frank was always seen serving in various church and fellowship functions. The C.O.F loved and were blessed by his singing. He will be sorely missed by the church family.

Frank graduated from Independence high school in 1989 where he was voted class clown his senior year (who knew?) . He also attended Columbus state community college .

Frank “Bookie”, was multi talented and very creative which he took after his mother . He was also a very private person who rarely complained which he took after his father. He was a SANGER (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH SINGER! ), a fashion extraordinaire , a counselor, pizza connoisseur and comedian as anyone who was friends with him on Facebook would know. Just to name a few things .
Frank loved the Lord , his family , pizza and his friend in that order . All who truly knew him will miss the ” Bookie face” you got when someone hit a bad note ( god forbid if it were you ) or if you said or did what he so lovingly called Stupid!

Frank was a very generous , loving and supporting person even when he did feel well he would be there for his friends and family . A lot of people did not know that he suffered for over 7 years with pain from bone cancer. He fought and he battled with this for along time , until he could fight no more.

Frank was 46 years old when he departed this life and he is preceded in death by his mother, Delores Moon; maternal grandfather, Lowell Brown; paternal grandfather, Frank W. Moon; and paternal grandmother, Rosie Mathews.

He leaves to cherish his memory, father, D. Frank Moon I; sister, Natasha (Aaron) Jackson; grandmother, Virginia Brown; nephew, Re’mon Nelson; god father, Deacon Eugene Washington; god sister Marchelle (Tannis ) Vaughn; god brother, Fred Washington and a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.

There were some who were very close to Bookie’s heart . You talked daily or weekly and you really looked out for him . He knew that YOU cared. You all know who you are and may God bless you for your sacrifices of love .

    Love 2 my little brother “Bookie” from the family of Michael K. Wicker. Always on our hearts


  8. Bookie, it is so surprising to know that you have departed this life. It was not our will but Gods, I always knew you were someone special, that’s the way God made you. You will surely be missed but you are up there with all of Gods children. You often sang about it and now you are happy with Jesus. You were loved and highly flavored.

    I am forever blessed that our paths crossed years ago. We were friends, as well as brother and sister. It doesn’t seem right that you are gone so young, but you enjoyed the years you were here and my life is better because you were in it. Kiss Flossie for me, and ya’ll behave! Rest well my lil brudder!

  10. My friend and brother….Bookie.. thank you for your faithfulness and friendship. Shocked you’re gone but not surprised when you took the call. Rest my friend. Rest In Heaven. Prayers and God’s comfort to the entire Washington, Rehoboth and Cathedral family. Love u Bookie! Tell my father and the rest of Saints hello.

  11. Bookie, one the fondest memories I have of you aside from your extravagant dress and infectious sense of humor is your ability to pearl on roller skates. I am still in shock that you have parted this life, but am glad to know that you knew, loved, and worshipped the Lord. Rest well dear friend.

  12. Elder Reginald Greer

    Hey Frank I did not expect to hear of your passing. One on your last messages to me was that you were in pain all over. I asked but I didn’t press. Sometimes you wish you could go back but we are not able to do so . I respected your privacy. I know that you are at peace with the Lord! It will be different to visit Cathedral and you not be there. So sleep on my brother Ill see you in the morning!!

  13. I do not know how long t’will be, nor what the future holds for me; But this I know if Jesus leads me, I shall get home someday. Praying that the peace of God comfort the family during this difficult time.

    My condolences and prayers for strength to the entire Moon, Brown,
    and Washington families. Rest Well Buddie! Til we meet again…

    To The Family of Frank “Bookie” Moon II

    When mortal life has passed through all the phases and experiences allowed to it, and its responsibilities have been met and fulfilled, though saddened by its close, we should take comfort in knowing that God gives rest.

    Whereas, Frank “Bookie” Moon II, the grandson of Virginia Brown, has displayed loving family and community values which have made an indelible impression for the betterment of society.

    Whereas, it has pleased our Heavenly Father, in His infinite mercy and wisdom, to call from among us and from the labors of this life to the sweet rest and fellowship of saints in heaven, the beloved Frank “Bookie” Moon II.

    Be it therefore Resolved, that even though death causes much sorrow, we encourage the family members to look to God who is able to comfort us in all our troubles and give strength for the days ahead. We pray that the strengthening and sustaining power of the Holy Spirit, will keep you in this difficult time.

    Be it Resolved, that although your presence will be greatly missed by your loved ones and those of us who knew you, we will accept with submission God’s will, and look forward with joy to meeting you in Heaven.

I just thank God, I just thank the lord God. I love you bookie, I love you always your friend Jhonny Two
