Max O. Moore
December 7, 1932 - March 4, 2022

Max O. Moore of Blackwell, Oklahoma has passed away. He died on March 4th, 2022, at the age of 89. His burial was attended by the family at the Blackwell cemetery on Tuesday, March 8th.

Max was born on December 7, 1932, in Blackwell, Oklahoma, to his parents Ausie and Olive Moore. He was the seventh child in a family that grew to include eleven children. Max attended Blackwell schools and later OSU's Okmulgee Tech. He married Frances Laughlin in 1953, a union that lasted nearly 68 years until death did they part last fall when his beloved wife passed.

He is survived by two of his older sisters, Betty Murrey of California and Joyce Allen of Enid, Oklahoma, his four children, Dee Glenny and Della McAllister of Blackwell, Debbie Liles of Texas and son Derrick of Ohio, and six grandchildren: Jeff Glenny & wife Karen of Georgia, Amanda Bradford of Alabama, Sarah Glenny and partner Dan Berndt of Colorado, Braxston Yunker & partner Kayla of Blackwell, and Nathan & Quinn Moore of Ohio, as well as 8 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Bonnie Martin and Peggy Dunaway, brothers Jack, Jim, Gary, Bill, Danny and Donny, son-in-law Jeff Glenny as well as granddaughter, Megan Glenny and great-granddaughter, Montana Glenny.

Max served his country in the United States Army and was a Korean War veteran. He had a deep and lifelong respect for all who honorably served and sacrificed for their communities and country. For more than 50 years, Max was an active member of the Blackwell and later Braman, Oklahoma American Legion posts. He served his community via the Legion's outreach activities, as well as a volunteer firefighter and storm spotter. Max was a member of Blackwell's First United Methodist Church.

Max enjoyed servicing and repairing cars, a passion for the automotive industry that he most certainly got from his father. An impressionable child during the Great Depression, Dad saved everything. He also collected the discards of others to be rehabbed or repurposed and shared with those who were in need. Max was immensely proud of his family and had an affection for the pets and many of the untamed animals in his life. He also loved whole pots of coffee, shoot'n the bull at local diners, telling tales and whistling tunes.

The family expresses its deepest gratitude to the personal caregivers who made our parents' dearest end-of-life wishes realized - to remain in their home. Their aid to, comfort and loving care for Max & Frankie are profoundly appreciated.

Arrangements are under the direction of Trout Funeral Home of Blackwell, 301 W Blackwell Ave, Blackwell, OK 74631. Donations in his honor may be made to the Disabled American Veterans organization, Disabled American Veterans, P.O. Box 14301, Cincinnati, OH 45250-0301.
