August 28, 1937 - May 28, 2022
John M. Moore was born August 28, 1937 in McNairy County, TN the son of the late George C. and Beulah Barton Moore. John married the love of his life, Janice Eloise Kiddy, on October 29, 1960. Together, they built a life of loving each other unconditionally. Once they both retired, they traveled, cooked together, cared for their garden and Jan's beautiful flowers. As years past and Jan became ill, John cared for her with loving hands. If you knew John and Jan, you know that their life together was the perfect description of true love. Jan passed away on February 14, 2018. John was a gentleman with a heart of gold. He loved life, his family, friends and God. He was always ready for a good breakfast at Winks. That's where he could catch up with all the gossip before he went to the store, aka the parts house. He loved a good game of pitching quarters with the guys at the store - word is he was pretty good at taking all your money. John gardened to not only feed his family but wanted to share his harvest with everyone. His love of family and friends extended to treating them with an occasional meal or two. John enjoyed going out to eat at several local restaurants especially Hagy's and Dinner Bell. When he wasn't able to go himself, he ordered takeout. John took care of his loved ones, served his country honorably in the United States Army, and left this world a better place. All who knew and loved him will miss him dearly, but know that he is in a better place. We are sure he is spending time with God, hugging his true love, and maybe, just maybe cracking a joke or two. Mr. Moore departed this life on May 28, 2022 in Selmer, Tennessee at the age of 84 Years, 9 Months. He is survived by numerous nieces and nephews; sister-in-law, Marie Rinks of Stantonville, TN; brother-in-law, Junior Kiddy of Stantonville, TN; and a host of friends. A special thank you and appreciation for his dear friend and bonus daughter, Theresa Robinson. It was due to her love, compassion, and patience that John was able to be at home surrounded by love during his illness. His wonderful caretakers - Cassie, Sharon and Vickey went above and beyond caring for John. John was blessed to have many caring friends who made his days much brighter by their phone calls and visits. In addition to his wife and parents, Mr. Moore was preceded in death by a brother, Samuel H. Moore and wife Tina; two sisters, Annie Rea King and husband Alfred, Mary Lee Lacaze and husband Wesley.
