Woodbury youth athletics coach Glen Moon died Thursday, according to family and friends.
Moon, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2011, died at his home under hospice care just after 11 p.m., said John Wallgren, a family friend. Earlier in the week, Moon made the decision to stop chemotherapy treatment and to begin hospice care.
A tribute ceremony planned for tonight’s Woodbury-East Ridge high school basketball game in honor of Moon will continue as planned, Wallgren said. He said there will be a moment of silence for Moon at halftime that will lead to the tribute, where attendees will be encouraged to share memories over a microphone on the court.
Moon, who coached several sports, is remembered as a deeply committed booster of the Woodbury Athletic Association, and a man who was quick with a laugh and a smile.
“He was instrumental in the Woodbury Athletic Association over the years,” Wallgren said. “His wardrobe was Woodbury athletics.”
Services for Moon were pending, but expected to be handled by Wulff Funeral Home, according to Moon’s CaringBridge website.
He is survived by his wife, Connie, and their three children – Jayde, Bailey and Sawyer.
