He attended Winston-Salem/ Forsyth County Public Schools and later attended Roxboro Community College.

"My brother was kind and loving. He was a son, brother, leader and a loyal friend. He had a heart of gold that went with his big smile that would turn your day around. He was known for his big beautiful smile. He was kind, and gentle, giving and willing. He loved music. He looked forward to being a small business owner. He was passionate about everything he was involved in. Although Man hit a few bumps in the road of life, he was able to learn from the mistakes of his past and became a better person. We miss him dearly and he will always be a part of us." -Chrethia Moore, Man's sister.
