Gregory Gene Moore, 65, of Amarillo Texas passed away unexpectedly on September 16, 2022.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. October 16, 2022, at the Lighthouse Chapel, 3707 Wolflin Ave. in Amarillo.
Greg was born March 11, 1957, in Salina, Kansas, to Clarence W. and Nadine Moore.
Greg graduated from Tascosa High School where he played bass saxophone. After high school he attended Amarillo Jr. College. He enjoyed fishing, riding motorbikes, loved his dogs and especially liked to grill outdoors. He was always trying to video record all of his family gatherings, birthday parties or even holidays. He was an excellent welder and designer of ornamental iron. He was general manager of Lolley’s Ornamental Iron for many years. He had a creative and artistic mind unlike any other. He even designed the logo for CW and Pat’s ranch. Greg loved everything there was about sports, whether it was playing little league baseball as a child to coaching his son Michael’s little league baseball team as an adult. He was even a bat boy for the Amarillo Gold Sox baseball team back in his younger years.
Greg was an avid Dallas Cowboys football lover. There was never a game he missed and he sure did not let anyone or anything interrupt his games either. You could always catch him with some sort of Dallas Cowboys gear on whether it be a hat, t-shirt or even his prosthetic leg. He would even do summer vacations just to see the summer training camps with his family. He sure did enjoy every minute of the training camps. Although Greg battled addiction and did several rehab programs he was a man who had a tremendous amount of love for his children. He could not have been prouder of the four of them and all of their accomplishments and the families that they have started as well.
He is preceded in death by his parents Robert and Nadine Lolley, and Clarence W Moore.
Those left to cherish the memory of Gregory are his children, Michael Moore and wife Lindsay, Jennifer Moore and fiancé Shea Marshall, Gena Spruill and husband Jason, and Kylie Moore; eight grandchildren; brothers, C.W. Moore and wife Pat, Mike Moore and wife Lisa, and his nieces and nephews.
A few weeks before I was Amigos and saw him in the parking lot. Told him I felt like I should know him. Told his name but didn’t register. I complimented on his hat and said his daughter Jennifer had gotten it for him and a shoe as well. I told she must really love him and he replied yes as well as his other children.
I never put it all together until I was back on the interstate and realized that he was my cousin’s ex husband, the father of her children. Glad I got to meet him.
I met Greg in 2018. He was a precious friend and I loved him dearly. When he got his dog EZ, he would get so upset when he jumped on me or misbehaved. Lol. Oh how he loved the Dallas Cowboys. I always knew what gift to get him. My heart is broken knowing he is gone. He gave me plate which said those you love may be gone but will live forever in your heart. You are missed my friend and forever in my heart.
We lived next door to Greg when he was in Dumas. We helped him with EZ when he was just a puppy and then would babysit EZ occasionally even after he moved to Amarillo. He was always very sweet to my little girl and loved watching her play in the front yard. Hate that we lost touch the last year or so… until we see each other again.
I only met Greg briefly but he was a very kind person.
Greg was someone I looked up to. He was there to guide me through one of the most difficult transitions in my life. Without him there showing me the way I doubt I would have been shown the path to be where I am today.
