Terry Lee Moore left us and went to heaven on February 9, 2023, he had died of natural causes at his home in his sleep in Fruitvale Colorado.
Terry Moore was the life of the party he loved his family with all of his heart. He spent all his spare time teaching his children about God, boxing, survival, and always staying on their toes. Terry was a war vet and served his country proudly in the army, Terry was in the front lines in the Vietnam War. He loved telling stories about his experiences. There was never a dull moment around Terry, for example one day it was pouring rain and his sons Jeffrey, Andrew got out of the car and ran as fast as he could into the garage, not knowing dad was still physically able to keep up with him he ran right behind them. Jeffrey had no idea, so he slammed down the garage door. Terry was so fast he made it before Jeff slammed the door shut, when he turned around there was dad well at least his legs made it into the garage not his top half. They made sure he was okay, Terry just left not knowing yet what the heck had just hit him. Everyone was rolling and we still talk about it till this day. Terry was truly a special man one of a kind. Everything he said was always intriguing, Terry had something about him. His wisdom and knowledge always came at the right time and when someone didn’t understand or follow what he was saying Terry would say “Maybe God’s timing ain’t for them to understand at this time.” He loved to talk about God and teach his boys about the Bible. Terry was very good at boxing and taught his boys everything. They learned everything they knew from their daddy. Terry will truly be missed, the long talks we would all have and the huge smile we would get when we walked through the door. One of the last conversations we had he sat with us and just kept telling us how we are his family and his world. He also said he wouldn’t have anything if it wasn’t for his family and how much he loved us. He was always thinking about others and just had the greatest smile that lit up the whole room. That’s the type of man that Terry was, and he will truly be missed.
