Together they had eight children: John Roy Moran III, Brandi DeSandro (Mike), Darlia Roberts, Casie Scott (Derek), Kemberly Groue (Gerald), Shane Moran (Jessica), Courtney Jinright (Jerod), and Emelta Liptrot. His legacy will continue to live on through his 24 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
