Keith Kellogg Moore entered into heaven on Feb. 18, 2018, at home, surrounded by his family.
Keith was born in Seattle, Wash., on Dec. 15, 1931, to Harold and Katherine Moore. He was one of seven siblings.
He attended Bothell High School, but received his GED to graduate early enlisting into the Army. He served in the Naval Reserve 1949-1950, and enlisted in the Army 1951-1953. Keith served in the Korea War, where he received Letter of Commendation in May 1952, and many Letters of Appreciation for his service.
Keith married Shirley Shepherd on March 7, 1951. This year would have been their 67th Wedding Anniversary. They lived in the state of Washington in the early years. Then, in 1974, Keith and Shirley embarked on a great journey and brought their five children to Alaska. Keith was an entrepreneur of many trades. He loved to work with his hands, whether working in construction, farming his "Alaska Red Eyed" potatoes or working on a couple gold mines in Alaska, he was a man who lacked idleness. He had a whistle in his step no matter what the task, and no task was too big. Quoting Pastor Duane Guisinger, "He was good for Alaska as Alaska was good for him."
Keith had the trip of a lifetime one year ago: he was given the privilege of being chosen to participate in The Last Frontier Honor Flight to Washington D.C.
Keith is survived by his wife, Shirley Moore; son, Scott Moore (wife Debra) and Douglas Moore; his daughter, Heidi Gwinnell (husband, Michael); daughter-in-law, April Moore; and daughter-in-law, Karen Moore. Keith is also survived by 11 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; brother, Wallace (Wally) Moore (Yvonne); and numerous nieces and nephews.
In his immediate family he is preceded in death by his sons, Michael Philip Moore and Keith Andrew Moore.
A Celebration of Life in memory of Keith will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 3, 2018, at Sunny Knik Chapel, 10774 South Knik-Goose Bay Road in Wasilla, Alaska. Potluck will follow at the conclusion of the service. Please bring a dish and a story to share. Pastor Duane Guisinger will be officiating.
