Gabriel Eric Moore

Gabriel Eric Moore – (August 12,1996 – July 25, 2012)
Gabriel accidentally drowned July 25th, 2012 in a swimming pool while he was doing underwater breath holding drills. He was attempting to beat his own time underwater. Six months before his fatal accident Gabriel had shared with his friends and family that he intended to join the Navy Seals after graduating from high school. He was practicing holding his breath underwater because he knew being able to hold his breath for a long time would be important if he joined the Navy Seals. Tragically he was not aware that he could pass out and die while practicing. None of us were aware of that danger. Gabriel had a passion for physical activities of all sorts and especially running, snowboarding, scuba diving, bodybuilding and Krav Maga. For Gabriel, every day was a new opportunity to push the limits of his own body by running faster, diving deeper and lifting heavier. Gabriel had a heart of gold. He loved sharing stories about Viking mythology with his friends at El Segundo High School in California. He also loved relaxing at home, playing World of Warcraft and spending time with his chihuahua dog Skip. His mother and father, Mireille and Terry, and his brother Julien, miss him tremendously.
