Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Harold E. Moore, age 88

Harold E. Moore, 88, of Leavenworth, KS, peacefully passed away on March 9, 2024, at The Blake in Little Rock, AR, where he had resided since April 2023. Born on September 15, 1935, in Tonganoxie, KS, Harold spent the majority of his life in Leavenworth, embodying the spirit of a true Kansan. In his final days, he received exceptional care from the cardiac healthcare professionals at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the dedicated teams at The Blake and Arkansas Hospice.

Harold’s life was adorned with diverse passions. A fervent supporter of the Jayhawks, Royals, and Chiefs, he was deeply immersed in the world of sports. Music held a special place in his heart, particularly the enchanting melodies of the big bands and his favorite jazz crooners. Until physical constraints set in, he delighted family, friends, and fellow retirement home residents with piano and trombone performances.

Harold led a life dedicated to the service of others. A lifelong Lutheran, he served his Lord and added his talented voice to the church choir for many years. His patriotism and pride in his country were evident during his years in the U.S. Navy, where he traveled the world aboard aircraft carriers. As a devoted husband and father, he lived the quintessential middle-class dream, ensuring his children inherited a better life. His love for his only grandson, Maddox, was immeasurable, and he cherished tales of Maddox’s basketball achievements. With 38 years of service, Harold was a proud member of IAM during his tenure at TWA.

Harold will be greatly missed by those left behind. Survivors include his sons, Michael Moore (Karen Tobey) of Little Rock, AR, and Richard Moore (Robbyn) of Shelby Township, MI, along with his grandson, Maddox Moore. Karen’s children John and Savvy will also feel his absence. He is preceded in death by his wife, Carol; sister Joan; and brothers Ralph, Ernest, and Frederick.

Interment will be at the Leavenworth National Cemetery, and a memorial service will be scheduled for a later date. Condolences for the family may be sent to Michael Moore, 43 Vigne Blvd, Little Rock, AR 72223. Expressions of sympathy and support can be directed to Arkansas Hospice (Arkansas Hospice Foundation, 14 Parkstone Circle, North Little Rock, AR 72116) or Trinity Lutheran Church (2101 10th Ave, Leavenworth, KS 66048).
