David B. Moore passed away on August 12, 2019. He was 85 years old and has lived a full and happy life. He died quietly and just slipped away to be with his son, his parents and family who went before him.

David was born to Earl and Rachel Mathews Moore on September 7, 1933 in Mansfield, Ohio. He had 5 older siblings: Helen Sponseller (Glen), Robert (Evelyn Baker), Grace Shoup (Dale), Phyllis Mowry (Clyde), and Nancy Bamberger (Robert) all who preceded him in death.

David married Eleanor JoAnn Agutter on August 11, 1960 in Salt Lake City, Utah. They were married for 59 years. They have 5 children: Kelly, Mathew (Lori Bigler), Nancy Palmer (Darrel), Erin, Tracy (Jennifer Downey). Erin preceded him in death.

David loved his family, scouting, flying his airplane, and helping in any way he could. He served in the Navy from 1956 to 1958. David earned his degree in electrical engineering from Radio Electronic Television Schools in Detroit, Michigan in November 1955. He worked as an electronics installer most of his life. On March 28th, 1959 he was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. David served in many callings in the church including missionary and bishop. The calling he loved the most was scout master. He always had a project to keep him busy. He had a talent for including his family and making each of us feel that our part of the project was important and critical to its success.  He will be greatly missed by those he loved and served.

David and JoAnn have been blessed with 15 grandchildren: Malcolm, Garrett, Angela, Nicholas, Emily, Kyle, Kelcee, Skyler, Jay Michael, Bryce, Miranda, Bonnie Jo, Samantha, Taylor, and Zarren and 9 great grandchildren: Waylon, Wesley, Wade, Lily Marie, Ella Rose, Zeppline, Halen, Charlotte, and Isaac.

Condolences

  • Marla & Cecil Fulton

    Sorry for your loss.

  • We love your Dad. He was always there to help when help was needed. He will be missed.

  • David, we will see you soon (hopefully not too soon, but soon in the grand scheme of things) in the meantime see what can be done about peach trees on your side of the veil.

  • David Moore will always be special to me, and to my husband Delwin. We served in the church, laughed – and oh what a great laugh! – cried, and learned so much from him. The Lord spared his life about 20 years ago when he had an accident with his boat, but we were blessed to enjoy these years since. We will miss the way he wiggled his fingers to say goodbye, how he would share a scripture with us and ask us about it, deviled eggs with Empty Nest FHE and more than we can express here. We send our love to the Moore family, JoAnn, their children, and grandchildren. You are all very special people.

  • Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to David’s family. I enjoyed working with David in scouting many years ago. He was a great teacher and filled with kindness.
