Graveside services were held Monday, Feb. 29, at Pawhuska City Cemetery for Robert Henry Moore.
Mr. Moore, who was 70, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 24, at his home in Pawhuska.
Robert was born here on March 31, 1945, to William Franklin and Ruby Lucille (Reed) Moore. He graduated with the Pawhuska High School Class of 1963. During 40-plus years as a pipeline journeyman, Robert travelled to most of the 50 states. But, he always returned to Pawhuska — the place he called home.
Well known as a master woodworker, Robert made everything from furniture to wooden bases for local artists. He was an avid hunter/outdoorsman and also collected vintage advertising. Robert was always generous and willing to lend a helping hand. He enjoyed spending time at his local shop and visiting with friends about topics ranging from politics to religion. He attended Pawhuska’s Calvary Baptist Church and was a member of the Local 798 Pipefitters Union. Robert touched many people in his time on Earth and he will be missed greatly by all family and friends.
He is survived by his children — Eric Moore of Stillwater, Deedra Moore of Tulsa, LeAnne Moore and partner Torrey Snow, from Missouri, and Robert (Rob T.) Moore II and wife Katy of Muskogee. Also surviving are two brothers, Bill Moore of Bartlesville and George Moore and his wife ,Glenda, of Texas; grandchildren Tyler Bailey, Grayson Godwin and Ryder D. Moore, and a great grandchild, Emma Bailey. Additional survivors include a brother-in-law, Jim Snively, and several nieces and nephews — Cindy Evans, Patricia Sousa, John Moore, Sara Burris, Jessi Moore, Jimmy Snively and John Snively. Robert was preceded in death by his parents, as well as a sister, Fannie Snively, and a sister-in-law, Barbara Moore.
The Rev. Artie Hudson of Calvary Baptist Church officiated the funeral services and McCartney’s Johnson Funeral Home was in charge of all arrangements.
