Leroy Moore, 83, Bean Blossom

Leroy Moore, 83, Bean Blossom, passed away peacefully Monday morning, June 2, 2014, at his home. He was a lifelong resident of Brown County.

Leroy was born Oct. 28, 1930, and raised in Gnaw Bone until he moved to Bean Blossom at the age of 31. He saw many changes throughout his life and remembered always walking to school, never having ridden in a school bus. Leroy was ambitious and enjoyed working with his hands and on the farm. He purchased his own semi-truck and drove more miles than he could count throughout the years. While Leroy loved visiting nearly every state, his favorite place to be has always been Bean Blossom.

Leroy was son of the late Roy and Marie (Beauchamp) Moore. He went on to marry, Margaret "Peggy" L. (Kanter) Moore Dec. 29, 1952, in Brown County. Peggy preceded him in death April 19, 2004, after 51 devoted years of marriage.

Leroy, along with his wife, was owner and operator of Moore’s Wrecker Service in Bean Blossom for more than 18 years. Leroy lived by the way he thought, “Work hard and always help your neighbors.” Leroy is most remembered for driving his dump truck all over Brown County, delivering stone, gravel, asphalt, sand and helping locals with his wrecker.  When he wasn't working, he relaxed by bush hogging, mushroom hunting and working in his vegetable garden. Leroy enjoyed visiting with family and friends. 

He is survived by his loving children, Robin (Steve) Ann Johnson of Marion, Kathy Lee Moore of Broomfield, Colorado, Mark David Moore and John Andrew (Wanda) Moore, both of Brown County. He will be remembered by his two sisters, Loulla Pearl “Dude” Moore of Brown County and Donna Petro of Columbus; six grandchildren, Dr. Kelly E. (Michael) Klinker of Ft. Wayne, David Sisson of Brown County, Jennifer Strong of Broomfield, Colorado, April J. Knorr and Charles Knorr, both of Nashville, and Dillon Kirchhofer of California; and several great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife; a daughter, Shalom "Sam" Angela Moore; three sisters, Marietta Henderson, Betty Graham and Geraldine Ping; a brother, Billie Moore; and his brother-in-law, Jr. Graham.

The Rev. Fred Harrison will conduct a funeral service at 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 6 at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry St. in Morgantown. Friends can call from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 5 and one hour prior to service time Friday, June 5 at the funeral home.  Burial will be at Weeping Willow Cemetery in Bean Blossom.

Expressions of caring and kindness can be made to the Moore family at meredith-clark.com.
