Obituary for Eddie Lee Moore

Eddie Lee Moore from Choctaw, OK passed from this earth into the arms of his Heavenly Father on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Eddie was born to Ray and Jessie Moore on July 31, 1933 in Harrah, Oklahoma. Or as he proudly liked to say, "Harrah, America!" He graduated from Harrah High School in 1951. Eddie attended a dance at the VFW in 1952 where he met Sue Bourlon from Jones, Oklahoma. He asked her on a date that evening and they've been together ever since, celebrating 61 years of marriage this past August.
Eddie learned about hard work at a young age due to losing his father to an unexpected death. He was only 15 years old, but began working to help support his mother and 6 siblings. After graduation from high school Eddie worked as an Installer for Western Electric/AT&T for 35 years.

Anyone who knew Eddie knew of his ability to find humor in almost every life situation. Nicknames were one of his signature trademarks...his children and grandchildren all had them! His competitive spirit led him to interact with others through a good game of Pitch, checkers or chess, as well as coach several adult sport teams in his younger years. Being Eddie's family member or friend meant you likely have played these games, if only once. His expertise of chess and checkers resulted in many championships at the Indian Festival of the Citizen Pottawatomie Nation; a heritage he was extremely proud to claim.

A hearty garden was always an extension of his home until the last few years. Even when he couldn't garden anymore he still was generous with his bounty from his many apple trees allowing neighbors and friends to come pick freely, even staking a sign in the front yard. One of Ed's joys of life was farming the land in Earlsboro, Oklahoma. He and his brother in law, Hub Reed owned this together. This 160 acre farm was affectionately titled "Paradise" because he said it was the closest thing to heaven without being there.

Eddie is preceded in death by his parents, Arthur Ray and Jessie Marie Moore and his siblings Julia and Harold of Harrah, Oklahoma. He is survived by his wife, Sue Moore, his daughter Terri Ragsdale of Choctaw, OK; his daughter Kathy Henry, spouse Greg, of Choctaw; son Mike Moore, and his wife, Lorrie of Choctaw; and Lori Merrill and her husband, Steve of Edmond, OK. Also, his nine grandchildren whom he loved to tease: Bryan Duncan, Amber Reynolds, Kristen Sweet, Jessica Nightingale, Joshua Merrill, Brandon Moore, Jonathan Merrill, Brooke Griffin and Rachel Franzoni. ). He also leaves behind his 13 great grandchildren, Gage, Bree, Reagan, Reese, Hadlee, Titus, Rory, Paisley, Emma, Sawyer, Kate, Oliver and Jackson. His sisters Evelyn Hopcus of Shawnee; Marilyn Clark and her husband Don of McComb, OK; Rosa Reed and her husband Hubert of Johnson, OK; Linda Capps of Shawnee, OK.
