VINTON–Famous Dave Moran, his family, and friends have formed a Vinton Relay for Life Team and will be walking at William Byrd High School on Friday, April 19 until the wee hours of the morning on the 20th.
Dave Moran, who was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in June of 2012, chooses to view life through rose colored glasses, literally. He is currently working on checking off one item on his bucket list—the goal of becoming famous, and simultaneously promoting cancer research.
Famous Dave Moran began his radio career at the age of 15 as a disc jockey in Roanoke. He retired several years ago as the owner of six radio stations in Virginia and North Carolina. He is also a licensed boat captain. He and his wife Sharon currently reside at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia.
Moran has two grown children, one of whom is Dr. Jessica McClung, Director of Special Education & Pupil Personnel Services for Roanoke County Public Schools and former principal of the old RCCC in Vinton. He also has four grandchildren.
Moran continues to live life setting an example for his family and friends. He personifies those idioms: “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you scraps, make a quilt.”
Famous Dave Moran invites others to join his Relay for Life team to help eradicate cancer through the research and programs of the American Cancer Society.
