Terry Lee Moore, carried many titles through his life; loving husband, father, brother, Papa and friend. He made it to the Promise land on May 17th, 2022, at home surrounded by his family. Terry’s life began on December 31st, 1962 in El Dorado, Kansas; the son of Dennis and Betty (Martin) Moore.

He also worked hauling hay, aircraft for 15 years and even owning a tire service shop. He did whatever it took to take care of his family and his people. When he wasn’t providing for his family his greatest joy was spending time with them. Whether camping or grilling at home or a bike ride around the lake, Terry brought life and laughter where ever he went.
