Memorial services are scheduled for two former Reno-Sparks NAACP presidents. 

William Moon died in Reno on June 25th. 

Moon was President of the Reno-Sparks NAACP from 1991-1992. He continued to serve on the Executive Committee, this year included. In 2013 he was given the Humanitarian Award at the Interfaith Community Memorial Service. Moon served on the City of Reno Civil Service Commission for many years and was an Elder in the LDS Church. 

His family says that he passed away in his home peacefully. 

Moon's memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 8 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Reno North Stake, 2505 Kings Row.

The Reno-Sparks NAACP tells us that another former chapter president and civil rights activist Eddie B. Scott passed away on May 21. He was 88 years old.

He served as president of NAACP Reno-Sparks Branch No. 1112 in 1961-64 and again in 1967-68. 

You can read Scott's full obituary here. There will be a memorial service at 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 30th at Reno's Second Baptist Church at 1265 Montello Street. A reception will be held at the church immediately after. 

A donation "In Kind to Eddie Scott Memorial Fund" may be made in person at any branch of Wells Fargo Bank.

Other financial contributions may be sent to Eddie Scott Memorial, P.O. Box 141, Swartz, LA 71281; payable to the order of Monique Scott.
