A victim of Alzheimer’s disease, and often known as “Pedro Loco,” he was well known in Ajijic for his flamboyant and unconventional mode of dress and a favorite companion, his donkey. His image showed up in advertisements and billboards publicizing businesses in the area and he was a familiar part of many local parades and festivities. He made friends wherever he went.
Moir is pre-deceased by his twin sister, Elizabeth Susan, and survived by his son, Kyle James Moir, grandchildren Olivia, William and Colt, his sister Janet and brother Jim. He was married twice, both times to women named Patricia.
His son will hold a celebration in honor of “a life well lived.” Watch for more details.
