Leroy Moye, age 68, beloved husband of Deborah Bell Moye, passed away on Monday, October 10, 2022, at Bridgeport Hospital with his family by his side. Born in Orangeburg, South Carolina on October 30, 1953, he was a son of the late Harry and Lillie Mae (Stroman) Moye and was a longtime resident of Bridgeport.
"Little Man" as he was known by many, grew up in Columbia, South Carolina before moving to Bridgeport.

He was a man of great faith and an active parishioner of St. Theresa Church in Trumbull where he was on the bowling team, coached youth basketball and a member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 8013. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, hot rod cars and auto racing but his greatest joy came from spending time with his family. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather and will be missed by all who knew him.
In addition to his beloved wife Deborah of 35 years, survivors include a loving son, Ian Moye of Statesville, North Carolina, two cherished grandchildren, Elise, and Emmett Moye, five sisters, Eartha Moye-Brown (Charles), Martha Mattocks (Grover), Patricia Moye, Maxine Moye, and Jacqueline Moye, and a brother, Jimmy Moye as well as many nieces and nephews.
