Leroy Moore LEROY MOORE, 82, died on June 2, 1014, at the Villages of Southern Hills, in Tulsa, OK. Leroy Moore was born December 12, 1931 to Mary Annie Peacock Moore and James Arto Moore in Healdton, OK. Between these dates, Leroy lived a life defined by his commitment to his country, service to his community, and laughter. His life story includes tales of athletic prowess, mischief and laughter, devotion to his family, doing for others, professional success as an industrial engineer, loving support for his daughter and extended family, and finding true love late in life. In the end, he faced cancer as he had lived: with humor, courage, and prioritizing care for others before himself. Leroy enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1951. He served 4 years, during the Korean Conflict, stationed at Altus Air Force Base, OK. After his discharge in 1954, Leroy enrolled at Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College. He graduated in the last OAMC class before the institution became Oklahoma State University in 1957, and then later earned another degree in mathematics from Oklahoma City University in 1971. In 1957, Leroy left Stillwater for Fort Wayne, IN and a job at International Harvester where he designed parts for trucks. By 1959, he'd returned to Oklahoma, taking a position as a draftsman with Western Electric in OK City. He worked for Western Electric, and AT&T, for 35 years, in Oklahoma City, Dallas, and Burlington, North Carolina, before retiring from the company in 1992. Leroy married Sue James in 1960; they adopted Tami in 1965, and divorced in 1987. He met and married Enyd Hulse Moore, the woman he described as "the love of his life," in 2011. At the time of his death, Leroy was survived by his wife Enyd, and daughter Tami Moore of Tulsa; nephews Dan Moratto, Michael Moratto, and Russell Doty; nieces Beverly Litchum, Lynn Matsler, and Cynthia Haldeman, and their families.
