Jess Emmett Moore, 79, passed away into the arms of the Lord on Sunday, February 13, 2022, in Granbury, Texas. He was born June 15, 1942, in Fort Worth, Texas to Walter Harold Moore and Willie Myrtle Moore.
J. E. married his wife Shirley on September 9, 1961 in Tolar, Texas. He became a wonderful husband and terrific father invested into his family’s life. For over 35 years he worked at General Motors, only missing one day in all those years. Hard working is one of those words that best described him. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved fishing and hunting. If he wasn’t on the lake or in the deer stand, you were most likely to find him in the garden. From black-eyed peas to pecans, melons to squash, he picked and gave away thousands of pounds of produce.
J. E. was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Shirley Moore; sister; Allene Moore Wilson and husband Steve Wilson; daughter, Penny Moore Knapp and husband Greg Knapp; son, Harold Moore; grandsons, Cal Knapp, Andrew Moore, and Jesse Moore, granddaughter, Brianna Knapp.
