    Mr.Moxie was one of my favorite teachers when I was in 7th grade at Warren County Middle school. I will never forget that when all of our class finished our work, he would take us to the gym to play basketball or to go outside if it was a nice day. My condolences go to the Moxie family at this time, Mr.Moxie was a great person to be around and an amazing teacher.

      My prayers are with the Moxie’s during this difficult time. I have such fond memories of 7th grade math class with Mr. Moxie (and John). I hope you can all find strength and love during this difficult time.

    We got to know Frank and Karen as baseball parents when our children played baseball and as our daughter’s high school basketball coach. He was both teacher and coach to his students and athletes, as well as a friend to the parents. He will be missed by the entire community.
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Moxie Family,
    Jeff and Sharon Riddagh
