Edward L. Moore, Jr.


August 6, 1934 ~ November 7, 2021

On Sunday, November 7th, 2021 at the age of 87, Edward went home to be with his friend Jesus. Edward, (or Ted as he was lovingly known), was born on August 6th, 1934 in Fairbury, NE to parents Edward & Cecile Moore. He grew up in Turner, KS and enjoyed sharing stories of his many adventures. In 1957, he joined the Army and proudly served the country he loved so dearly.  When his service was over, he joined the family trade as a brick mason working alongside his father for many years. He would often point out the various buildings that he had worked on during family car rides. In the spring of 1966, Ted met the love of his life, “His Girl”, Joan. After a brief courtship, they married on September 16, 1966 and recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. They spent their days side by side raising 6 beautiful children in their one and only home together in the Overland Park neighborhood where they made lifelong friends. In 1976, Ted changed careers after graduating from Cleveland Chiropractic College. He affectionately became known as “Doctor Moore” & enjoyed many years of helping his patients heal. In 1999, he retired from chiropractic and embarked on several hobbies including oil painting, leather & woodworking and various home improvement projects. Above everything else, Ted loved the Lord with all his heart. He was a faithful servant and would share the Gospel with everyone he met. His greatest joy was being a child of God.

He will be watching over his beautiful bride Joanie, children Debbie Seaman, Bobbi Dennis (husband Rich), Julie Dudzik (husband Kevin), Tina Moore, T.J. Moore (wife Samantha), grandchildren Jeremy Seaman, Christen Gemsky (husband Chris), Kati DeMulder (husband Tosh), Kelli Dennis, Kelsi Dudzik, Lauren Dorsey, Justin Dudzik, Jason Dudzik, Sydney Moore, Caden Moore, 8 great-grandchildren, sister Patsy Libeer and many nieces, nephews & cousins.

Ted is reunited in Heaven with his daughter Pam Martin, grandsons Nathan Dennis & Matthew Seaman, his parents and sister Jeanie Haden.


A Celebration of Life service will be held on Tuesday, November 23rd, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at Olathe Christian Church 1115 S. Ridgeview Rd, Olathe, KS 66062.

    Dear Moore Family, My heartfelt condolences to Joan and loved ones. I grieve with you at your great loss of husband and father. As we commerate Dr Moore’s amazing life as a wonderful Christian man loved by so many we are consoled to know Earth’s loss is Heaven’s gain. Those of you that know me are aware of how I esteemed Dr Moore. And by honoring him now we are indeed honoring and esteeming Joan and you children as well. You are his tribute, his glory, his legecy. I can’t find words to express my gratitude and thankfulness for the Moores ‘adopting’ Timothy and Kimberly and their families those many years ago when KS became both my children’s home. Thank you for believing in them and praying for them both then and now! I am eternally grateful! My Love and Blessings, LaVerne Davis

    Joan and family we have known Ted for over 25 years. He was a godly man who loved and rejoiced in his family. Ted loved Jesus and knew Him as a friend. Today Ted is in glory, signing praises to Our Lord with innumerable saints and rejoicing in the radiance, comfort and peace of The Trinity.
    Bless you Ted and may you soar with the Angles.
    Jim and Susan Wright
