Kenneth ‘Kenny’ Eugene Moore

Kenneth “Kenny” Eugene Moore, 38, passed away at 1:20 p.m. May 9, 2013, at home surrounded by his closest family after a short and courageous battle with cancer. After an unexpected terminal diagnosis, Kenny had a strong will and desire to embrace as many quality moments with his wife and sons as possible. He fought to go above and beyond any doctor’s timeline of survival and surpassed everyone’s expectations.

Throughout his life, Kenny was known for his love of spending time with his wife, watching movies and laughing with his boys, his sense of humor and hard work ethic. He indicated that his most proud accomplishments were his marriage to Jamie (Carver) Moore Sept. 2, 1995, and raising their sons, Jerrad, 15, and Devin, 13. Kenny and Jamie prided themselves in their passionate marriage, close family unit and raising their boys in a loving home.

Kenny graduated from Taylor High School in 1994. Most recently, he served as a United States Air Force senior airman. His primary role was an Air Reserve technician crew chief of the KC135. He served overseas in 2010 and 2011, and he earned multiple awards, distinctions and ribbons during his time of service.

Kenny is survived by his wife of nearly 18 years and their two sons; his parents, Karen and Gary Moore; maternal grandmother, Jane Braden; brother, Scott Moore; father and mother-in-law, Jim and Betty Carver; brothers and sisters-in-law, Jenny and Randy Smith, Jeremy and Mindy Carver, and Jason and Dawn Carver; and several nieces and nephews.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate Kenny’s life at a public visitation from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Sunset Memory Garden Funeral Home. A private funeral and entombment service will be held, with Pastor John Newton from First Church of God officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Jerrad and Devin Moore College Education Fund in care of Sunset Memory Garden. The family would like to offer a very special thank you to Jenny Smith, Randy Smith, Brooke Smith, Caleb Smith, Mike Fewell, Monica Fewell, Jeremy Carver, Kenny’s Air Force family, Dr. Annette Moore, Dr. Lance Washington, Dr. Ben Chiu, Dr. Deshini Moonesinghe and also to the many friends providing support at Community Howard Regional Health.
