Gene Moore Obituary, Gene Moore Has Passed Away – Death Cause
Gene Moore Obituary, Death – On November 27, 2021, Gene passed away in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by his children. He had been ill for some time. Clarence Eugene Moore and Luella Adams Moore were his parents, and he was born on October 1st, 1922 in Rigby, Idaho. He was the fifth child out of a total of seven children born to his parents. He was brought up on a dry farm that was completely self-sufficient and did not have any running water, electricity, or other contemporary luxuries.
Gene made every choice in his life with the guiding principles of a strong faith in God’s plan and a profound love and respect for Jesus Christ. He had the talent of being able to make others feel good from a young age until the day he passed away, and he sought to mirror the teachings of the Savior throughout his whole life. He received the call to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when he was 19 years old, right before the United States entered World War II. He was sent to work in the Spanish Speaking American Mission.
Throughout his entire life, he maintained a lifelong passion for language study, particularly Spanish. On December 8, 1941, the day after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Gene received word that he was to report to the residence of the mission. During those 2.5 years, he spent the majority of his time as a missionary on the southern border of Texas. Once he completed his mission, he joined the United States Merchant Marines and trained to become a radio officer. He worked aboard high-octane fuel tankers in both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans.
On November 25, 1946, he tied the knot with Bonnie Folland in the Temple in Salt Lake City. They would have celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary on Thanksgiving Day this year had Bonnie not passed away on December 9th, 2018. After Gene made a vow to her future husband that she would always look out for his daughter, Gene’s father agreed to give her daughter’s hand in marriage. He kept his word with affection right up until the very end of their time together. Melody, Larry, also known as Carol, Brent, Robyn, and Scott, also known as Ninon, and Ryan are their five children (Melissah). He has twelve grandchildren, soon to be 20 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren from Hawaii to Florida. Gene and Bonnie eventually built their dream home in Mt Olympus in Salt Lake City where a sign hung that reads, “These are the Good Old Days” as their posterity was taught to love and live well in the moment.
