Tribute & Message From The Family

On February 18, Carl Moore passed away in Austin at the age of 85, after a life full of love, laughter & grace.

Carl was born October 8, 1933 in Brownwood, Texas to R.O. and Alberta Moore. They then moved to Austin in 1937. Carl graduated from Austin High in 1952, later joined the Army, and then attended the University of Texas. His little sister, Betty, introduced him to her friend, Mary Ethel Miller. They married on September 6, 1957 and have been together since.

He enlisted in the army on June 16, 1953, was active until March 1, 1956 when his father passed away. He served in the reserves until May 1, 1961. While active, he served as an AA "Missile Maker". He always spoke proudly of his service in the Army.

Carl worked as an accountant at the LCRA for an entire career until retirement in 1986. He was a volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America, earning the top honor of a volunteer, the Silver Beaver award. He was a long-time member of Oak Hills United Methodist Church, where he taught Sunday school, Bible studies and sang in the choir.

Carl was renowned for a quick wit, corny humor, a generous heart, and spirited support for the Texas Longhorns - all of which will be missed by those who knew him.

Sorry to have missed his service and this obituary. Carl was a man I will always admire as a leader in my spiritual journey.

Mary Ethel, Jack and Ann Moore love you and have missed being with you at the last several family reunions. We always thoroughly enjoyed your company. Since Carl is only 1 year older than Jack, I don't think anyone living has known Carl as long as Jack! We know the service will be wonderful celebration of Carl's long and happy life. Wish we could be there. Hugs to you and your family.
