July 29, 1944 ~ September 10, 2023 (age 79) 79 Years Old
Terry Leon Moore, 79, a resident of rural Redkey, went to be with the Lord on September 10, 2023 at Stillwater Hospice. He fought a courageous battle of chronic health issues. Terry never gave up hope and fought bravely until the very end. Born on July 29, 1944 in Winchester, IN. He was the son of Madonna (Straley) Moore and Myrl Moore. He graduated from Redkey high school in 1962. Terry worked hard as a machine repairman at Kerr glass, Borg Warner, and later retired from GM in Marion, IN.
Terry was described by many as a gentle loving and caring man who would always be willing to lend a helping hand not only to his family and friends but also to a complete stranger. He adored his wife of 59 years, Virginia, and his kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.
Terry enjoyed horse racing, fishing, hunting, Indian artifacts, and working in his garage. He found lots of joy in watching the grandkids extracurricular activities where he’d always be the biggest fan cheering them on from the side lines.
He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife Virginia (Hayes) Moore, two children, West (Marisa) Moore and Teresa Cox. 4 siblings, Brenda Edmonds, Wayne (Judy) Moore, Judy (Barry) Retter, and Steve (Gail) Moore. 11 grandchildren, Tiffany (Chaise) Lowe, Colton (Harlee) Cox, Kearsten (Stacey) Lance, Makayla Moore, Riley Foster, Wyatt Foster, Parker Moore, and Brynli Moore, Kacy Moore, Chris Moore, Jake Moore. Eleven great-grandchildren. He was proceeded in death by his parents and a special aunt.
Visitation will be held on Thursday from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Williamson-Spencer and Penrod Funeral Home in Portland. A Masonic Service will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday at the funeral home and Pastor Joe Hines will officiate the service following the Masonic Service. Private burial will follow on Friday at Gardens of Memory Cemetery, north of Muncie.
