In Memoriam: Eucled D. Moore (1935-2017)

Celebrating Eucled's last birthday

Amore's dad, Eucled Moore, passed away early Friday morning after a long battle with Parkinson's. He pastored churches in Arkansas and West Virginia before serving as an IMB missionary in East Africa. After the family's return to Texas in 1981, he served as the founding pastor of a still-thriving New Braunfels church.

I never got to hear him preach but enjoyed the privilege of sitting under his teaching in many Sunday school classes. He had a beautiful singing voice and was a skilled carpenter. Our home is full of his woodwork, Bible study resources, and carpentry tools. He worked hard in everything he undertook, and God gave him much success.

One of my sisters-in-law recently honored Dad Moore's pilgrimage better than I can in "The Magic of Music" on her own blog, strokemanswoman. 

He was a kind and loving father-in-law to me and always encouraged my attempts at writing and photography. He is greatly missed, but we are very thankful his decades of suffering are over and we will see him again in the Lord's presence.

He leaves behind his wife of nearly 63 years, five sisters and their families, five children and their spouses, twelve grandchildren (some of them also with spouses), and four great-grandchildren. The memorial service is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. Please keep the family in your prayers as we prepare, travel, and celebrate his life together.

"For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words."
1 Thessalonians 4:16‭-‬18 ESV
