Frank Moiger, 61, of Atlanta died peacefully in his sleep Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017, in hospice care, surrounded by family and friends.

A Knoxville, Tenn., native, he was the son of the late Sol and Dorothy Scott Moiger. He is survived by his brother, David Moiger (Ximena) of Dallas, Texas; his sister, Anita Worsham of Santa Fe, N.M.; and nieces Sasha Moiger and Suzy Worsham (Betsy Buckley).

Frank was devoted to his family and enjoyed traveling with them across the United States and Canada. He had an abiding curiosity about the world and a keen sense of humor.

His friends also meant the world to him. The family especially thanks Paul and Dana Joffe and Mike and Celeste Hayes for their devotion to Frank during his illness. Their unwavering and heartfelt support helped extend Frank’s life.

Frank was a kidney patient all his adult life. A strong advocate for kidney patients, he was the former associate director for the Georgia affiliate of the National Kidney Foundation. The owner of FairPlay Sportscards and Atlanta Area Sports Collectibles Show, he remained a lifelong University of Tennessee Vols fan.
