Larry Moore Obituary, Death- Larry Dean Moore, a respected Coffeyville resident with a sense of humor that could make a statue chuckle, died abruptly at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center on September 18, 2023. Larry Moore was born in Coffeyville, Kansas, to Milton and Leona (Claypool) Moore on July 25, 1960.
To practice welding, he traveled from Wann, Oklahoma, to Emerald Transformer’s building sites. Larry loved farming, fishing, shooting, horseback riding, and roping cattle in the country. Enjoying a cold one with family and friends was his favorite. The saying goes, “The best beer in the world is the open one in your hand.”
Larry understood the importance of toasting friends and family after a long day. He loved Linda Moore after marrying on August 5, 1985. Larry was a dedicated family man and hard worker who would deliver mail in a blizzard and always support you. Linda, Larry’s loving wife, says she will miss him since he could make any chore exciting.
Chelcie Moore, Calli Gearhart, and Mahaley Bedell of Nowata, Oklahoma; Kyle Moore of Noxie, Oklahoma; and his other children and grandchildren will always remember Dad. He leaves his Kansas and Oklahoma siblings and their families. Robert Moore is survived by his wife Karen in Wann, Oklahoma; Bonnie James and Mike in Caney, Kansas; and Jody Long pine and Dale in Independence, Kansas. His parents, Milton and Leona Moore, and brother, Kevin Moore, died.
