Ryan C. Moore, a state beverage company sales manager who was also an avid sports fan, died Friday of an apparent heart attack.
The Jarrettsville resident was 38.
Mr. Moore was on his way to an appointment when stricken and was transported to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, where he was pronounced dead, family members said.
