The vigil ended with a procession of emergency service vehicles “lighting up the night sky.”

Moore owned a towing business, and was hit and killed on Interstate-20 Friday night. Louisiana State Police officials say he was trying to load a disabled car when another car went off the highway and hit him.

People who knew Moore say he would help anyone he met.

“He always had a smile when I entered his business,” says Hazel Suluki, a long-time friend of Moore. “Always waiting for me to ask for help. He always said yes. He never said no. I’d also get a big hug. I’m going to miss him. I’m going to miss him.”

Cynthia Machen worked with Moore and says he was a great man.

“There’s no bad about this guy,” Machen says. “You wouldn’t find anybody anywhere that would say anything bad about this guy.”

Friends are asking everyone to keep Moore's family in their thoughts and prayers.
