Thomas Eugene “Gene” Moore, 83, passed away March 4, 2016 at his home in Point Enterprise. Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Monday, March 7, at Blair-Stubbs Chapel, with Brother Bruce Rudd officiating. Interment was in the Point Enterprise Cemetery.
Gene was born May 31, 1932 in Limestone County, to Eugene Hastings and Ruby Viola Little Moore. After high school, he proudly served his country in the Air Force. Gene married his lifelong partner, Peggy Wright, on March 29, 1956 in Houston. His love for God and his family was easily revealed in the way he lived his life. He loved and cherished all his family, but like most grandfathers, thought there was nothing more precious than his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Gene was a rather quiet, easy-going man who never complained; when asked how he was doing, his answer was always, “Wonderful.”
