Obituary

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.
