ates,” recalled Dan Snowden, a 1987 Lee

longtime county supervi-

a temporary successor will
be appointed to serve the
rest of his term.
The Greenwood Com-

73-year-old Robert Moore
was a member of the Leflo-

He died Friday at the
University of Mississippi

two days after his vehicle
left a road in Leflore Coun-

When his colleagues
met Monday in Greenwood,
a large black ribbon had
been placed on his chair.
The remaining supervi-
