The Rev. Edwin M. Moore, 91, Kokomo, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2017. He was born Nov. 21, 1926, in Indianapolis, to Cecil R. and Ruth (Layton) Moore.
Ed was a Godly man, giving his life to the Lord at a young age, and passionately doing the Lord's work as a minister. He graduated from Howe High School in 1944, and shortly thereafter, married his sweetheart, Shirley Bowman, on June 15, 1952. Together they raised four children. Ed served professionally at General Motors for more than 27 years, retiring in 1991. He was also an associate pastor at Praise Fellowship in Indianapolis.
Ed's priorities in life were always clear: God first, then family. His hobbies included gardening, creating intricate pieces in his wood shop and traveling. He and Shirley explored the country together, spending time in every state, save Alaska, and visiting every Presidential Library. He was loved dearly and his absence will leave a void in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to cross his path.
In addition to his parents, Ed was preceded in death by his brothers, the Rev. Herbert Moore and the Rev. Earl Moore, and his sisters, Frances Rains and Loretta Moore.
Ed is survived by his wife of 65 years, Shirley (Bowman) Moore; his children, David (DeAnna) Moore, Kokomo, Danny (Kimberly) Moore, Cape Coral, Florida, Tami (Michael) Reith, Kokomo, and Lynn (Meghan Phillips) Moore, Colorado Springs, Colorado; 11 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
Please join us for a celebration of life at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, at Kingdom Life Ministries, 2104 W. Alto Road, Kokomo, IN 46902, to be officiated by Pastor Glenn Waltman.
