Larry Dale Moore, 70, passed away, 7/5/2019, peacefully after years of fighting cancer. He was the 5th of 10 children, born on February 13, 1949, to Roy and Mary Moore near Bellbrook, Ohio, at the farm house where they lived. His oldest brother, Thurman and their uncle Ewing were working in the garage and someone came out and told them it was a boy! A celebration followed with much hoopla. They moved to Xenia a few years later after a tornado in 1954. Larry was known for his ability to fix cars and anything else with a motor. He loved to fish, just like his dad did. Larry also loved to play guitar and had a beautiful voice to go along with it. He was always happiest when he could be crazy and laugh with his family & friends. His favorite pastime was spending time with his family and especially with his brother, Wayne. It was rare to see one without the other.
Larry is survived by his loving daughter Krista Collett (Jason) of Naples, FL. and granddaughters, Aliyah & Alayna, who he loved to joke around with. Also a son, Rusty, his five sisters; Loretta Stephens, Delores Haines, Kathy Nelson (Richard), Patti Brooks and Karen Smith, and 4 brothers; Thurman Moore, Bobby Moore, Leo Wayne Moore, and Garry Moore, all who miss him dearly. He is preceded in death by his parents (Roy and Mary Moore), his special niece Robin Moore, nephew Jerry Moore and brother-in-law Tom Brooks.
The family is planning on a private memorial later this summer to honor Larry’s life. Thank you to all who knew and loved Larry. He cared deeply for his family (also his many nieces, nephews & cousins) & many wonderful friends.
The Powers-Kell Funeral Home is serving the family.
