George Glen Moore (74) of Cokeville, Wyo., left this earthly world surrounded by his loved ones on June 5, 2018, at Edgewood Senior Living in Soda Springs, Idaho, after a long and hard-fought battle with multiple myeloma and other complications.
George was born on March 2, 1944, in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He was the eldest of five siblings. They lived in Cobalt, Idaho, for the majority of the time until moving and making Cokeville, Wyo., their home in 1960. Soon after high school, George was drafted into the United States Army, and served bravely and honorably in the Vietnam War. He was a radar technician, which is where he came in contact with agent orange that caused some of his health issues. He was also awarded a medal for his efforts as a sharp shooter.
George raised two sons all while working at the coal mine in Kemmerer for more than 30 years as a welder and shovel operator.
He had many hobbies, such as fishing, hunting, flying his ultra-light, riding Harleys with his brother Steven, spending time with his boys and brothers, but his favorite of all of them was playing with his grandkids. They were the light of his life and they will miss him terribly. George was the kind of man who would do anything for anyone and not expect a thing in return. He was a quiet man with a loving smile and personality that made all who knew him love him.
George is survived by his sons Jeremiah (Katie) Moore and Zachariah (Shawnee) Moore, as well as his grandchildren Kamille, Kycen, Kenna, Kallen, Charlotte and George. He is also survived by his brothers Steven (Luci) Moore and Joe (Trudy) Moore, as well as many nieces and nephews. George is preceded in death by his father George Clay Moore and mother Glenda Lucille Moore, brother Rocky (Doris) Moore, sister Glenda “Pixie” Nicholas, sister-in-law Trudy Moore and grandson Kohen George Moore.
On behalf of the Moore family, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Cokeville EMS and firefighters for all their help over the last year, and an extra special thanks to Edgewood Manor for the loving care they gave George during his last days.
We are so grateful for all the thoughts and prayers. In lieu of flowers, we believe George would rather you take time with your families making memories in the great outdoors — that’s what George would be doing with his family. Make your kids feel special, because they are.
We know for sure that Kohen was waiting patiently for Papa George. What a joyful reunion. We will never forget him, because he gave us so much to remember.
