He was married to Edna Mae Hardy of Jerome, Iowa, at the Christian Church Parsonage, by Rev. Trimble on Oct. 19, 1936. His brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Manford Moore, were attendants.
They lived in Kearney, Nebr., their first year of marriage; then they returned to Jerome, where they made their home ever since.

Surviving his death are his widow, Edna; his sons, Jerry and Roger, and a brother, Manford and his wife Maggie, of Oskaloosa, Ia.
Preceding him in death are his parents; a brother, Roy Moore and his wife, Urah; and a sister, Blanche, of Nebraska.

Also left to mourn his death are several nieces and nephews and a host of other relatives, neighbors and friends.
"You cannot say, you must not say,
That he is dead, he is just away;
Taken without a good-bye and without a warning,
But sadly missed by his family at noon, night, and morning."
