LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — On December 2, 2013, the great summons was again sent down to earth. This time the call came to William Moore Jr. His life’s work was finished and he answered the call to come on home.
Brother Junior (as he was known by most) was 83 years old and was the son of the late William and Eva Wilson Moore.
On Dec. 5, 1959, he was united in marriage to Eloise (Lou) Robinson and her children, Rick, Dean and Carolyn.
Those left here to weep because of his leaving are children, Rick (Marsha) Hodge and Carolyn (Paul) Mitchell; a sister, Carolyn (Clifford) Cupp; six grandchildren, Rick Hodge Jr., Travis Hodge, Amanda Hodge, Ashley Cawood, Angela Wilson and Heather Hyden; 10 grandchildren and many other relatives and friends.
His parents, his wife, Lou, a brother, Jesse Moore, a sister, Ruth Swanner and a son, Dean Hodge, preceded him in death.
Brother Junior made peace with God several years ago and lived a Godly life. If you asked him a question, you would get this reply, “I will tell you want the Bible says.”
Brother Junior was sick for several years and after the loss of his wife, he longed to go home. All the tender loving care given him and the prayers of God’s children couldn’t stay the hand of death. The final call was given and Junior had to obey. Today, his suffering is over and he is sweetly sleeping with Jesus. So, children, grandchildren, family and friends, put your trust in Jesus, the one who can give life or take it away, for he doeth all things well.
Funeral service was conducted at 1 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5 in the chapel of Bowling Funeral Home with Bobby Mullins officiating.
Burial followed at Casteel Cemetery in East Bernstadt.
Visitation was after 6 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.
