Moore came to Blackwell with his parents when he was around five years old from Platt City, Mo., where he was born March 19, 1891.
As a young man he went to work for the late C.G. Fey, leaving the store to enter service in World War I going overseas for duty. Upon his return he was employed as a meat cutter in the Scott Grocery, located where the Western Auto Store is at present, and then entered business for himself with a meat market located on North Main.
Later he moved to 106 South Main where he was associated with the late Harry Braunsdorf in a combined grocery-meat market at the location.
Moore became employed in Fey's Grocery and Market in 1943 but at the onset of World War II left to become a meat cutter in the Prisoner of War camp at Tonkawa. He returned to work at Fey's in the late 40's and remained employed there until he retired in July, 1961.
He was a member of the Christian Church and along with his wife, Bessie, attended Class 13.
He was a 45 year member of Russell Litchfield American Legion post and belonged to the local Veterans of Foreign Wars post, and held membership in Chikaskia Lodge AF&AM in Blackwell.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by a son, Lt. Col. Lee Brent Moore, serving with the U.S. Army in Saigon, who arrived in Blackwell Thursday to be at his father's bedside. Also surviving are his daughter-in-law and three grandchildren who reside at 7813 Kellebrew Drive, Anadale,Va.
