The story of Ken Moore... as told by his family and friends...\n\nKenneth Russell Moore was born April 28, 1941 in Kansas City, MO and passed away April 17, 2020 in Falls Church, VA. His parents, Robert J. Moore and Donna L. Meade-Moore were both of Irish decent and had entertainers and musicians throughout the family history. That history is probably why Ken Moore loved music and loved to entertain people with humor.\n\nFamily and friends have described Ken as:\n"A faithful servant of the church with a cheerful heart"\n"Generous"\n"An encourager with a sweet, gentle spirit - a very kind friend"\n"A great teacher, explainer and wonderful mentor who gave wise advice"\n"Humility in acknowledging his human failings and always thankful for God's forgiveness"\n"Humble, never pretentious, and always trying to make people laugh"\n"Patriotic and loved his country"\n"Ethical and known for his integrity"\n"Unwavering in his faith and love of Jesus"\n"He would say 'Don't call me Mr. Moore - call me Ken... yes, Ken Moore, like Sears.' "\n\nKen lived in several places during his life, including: Missouri, Ohio, Virginia and Florida. He loved to be outdoors, loved warm, sunny weather, loved to fish, loved to swim in the ocean and truly appreciated nature and all of God's creatures. He graduated from Annandale High School in Virginia and went to college in Daytona Beach, FL (where he enjoyed auto racing and his Triumph TR3).\n\nMany family members and friends are celebrating the life and humor of Ken Moore - he is preceded in death by his son, Russell Moore and survived by: his two daughters, Wendy Moore-Ventura and Kendra Moore-DeGidio; his three grandchildren, Lilly, Sam and Jasmine Ventura; his sister, Linda Moore-Winchester; nieces and nephew and his wife Dorothy Moore.\n\nSince Ken Moore was never one for formalities, there will not be a formal service, but his daughters plan to honor his memory by going fishing and listening to gospel hymns.
