Moore, Edward Ray


On Monday, Dec. 26, 2016, Edward Ray Moore (Eddie), our amazing husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend left this earth surrounded by love.   Eddie was born on September 27, 1939  to Mose Daniel and Lillie Maude Moore in Dallas, TX.

Eddie loved his family, his friends, his dogs and Texas.  He loved traveling with his wife Molly and their friends to wonderful places.  His favorite trip was the African safari.   He was like a kid enjoying all there was to see.  He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his sons Kelly and Terry.  After grandchildren came along, they were included in the family outings.  He liked country music, golf (most of the time) and spending time in East Texas feeding the deer.   He had a love for Mexican food (with the occasional margarita), pecan pie and Susan’s blackberry cobbler.  He had a great sense of humor.  He was our rock and the person who kept us grounded in the real world.

Eddie was born and raised in Dallas, TX   He graduated from WW Samuels High School in 1958 and learned the trade that would be his livelihood.  Eddie was a bricklayer and a member of the International Bricklayers Union.  In later years he worked for Job Corps teaching and mentoring young people in the art of bricklaying.

He loved helping kids succeed in life, whether by learning a job skill or playing baseball.  His last job before retirement was as regional director for the International Masonry Union.  Retirement was his favorite job.

He is survived by his wife of almost 40 years, Molly Moore; son Kelly Moore and his wife Donna: son Terry Moore and his wife Sheila, daughter Elayna Szkrybalo and her husband Daniel; daughter Susan Williams and her husband Scott. Grandchildren Lindsey Alexander and her husband Todd, Kristin Moore, Michael Moore, Luke Moore, Cole Moore, Jacelyn Szkrybalo, Sierra Szkrybalo, Nicole Thompson, Alex Thompson and Chelsey Thompson, several nieces and nephews and many wonderful friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Wanda Daniels, brother in law Jack Daniels and his nephew Randy Daniels.

The family would like to thank the staff at Powerback Rehabilitation, Baylor Hospital in Plano  and VITAS Hospice at Baylor Carrollton for their care and support.

If you wish to honor his memory, please make a donation to the American Lung Association, First Richardson Helpers, c/o FUMCR 503 N Central Exp, Richardson, TX 75080 or your favorite animal shelter.

The family will gather privately to scatter his ashes in his favorite place, Holly Lake Ranch, where the deer and the wildlife play.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. He was a good man and a longtime friend. We loved him too.

May God bless and comfort you during this difficult time. Eddie was a school friend from long ago, and he was a great bricklayer. Back in the early ’70s, he “bricked” a new room and fireplace we added to our house. He will be missed.

Sheila Moore says:

Eddie was a great man. I was blessed to have him as my father-in-law. From the moment I met him, he was nothing but kind, loving and funny. It was always easy to see how much he loved his family and spending time with them. You never new what he might say next, but it was going to be true and more than likely, make you laugh. He will be missed, but he will be in our hearts forever. Love you Eddie!
