Arthur D. Moore Jr., 84, passed away on April 22, 2017 at Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center. Funeral service will be held at First United Methodist Church in Anniston today, April 25, 2017 at 11 a.m. The family will receive visitors an hour prior to the service. Born in Pell City, he was married to his college sweetheart Elizabeth Scruggs Moore for 61 years. Art and Libba met while attending Auburn University where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, Spades and was the 1954 Student Body President. An eagle scout, Art served his country following college graduation, 1954-1957, as an Air Force navigator. After 41 years with Alcoa Aluminum, Art retired and moved home to Alabama. He was able to pursue his love of fishing and gardening. An avid orchid grower, he served as president of the American Orchid Society and was a Master Judge of Orchids. His greenhouse was a testament to his mastery of growing orchids and anyone who visited always left with a plant and instructions. In addition to hobbies, Art was an active and beloved member in his community. He attended First United Methodist Church where he was involved in all missions of the church, specifically Camp Lee, where he was a member of the board. As a patron of the arts, Art was devoted to ensuring the community had the support and facilities for others to enjoy various performances. He worked with Knox Concert Series in many capacities, but will forever be remembered for ensuring local school children were able to attend The Nutcracker Ballet. He was also a dedicated supporter of Oxford Performing Arts Center and Longleaf Botanical Gardens. Art is survived by his wife, Libba Moore; his daughters, Kathryn Moore Bowen (Jack) and Anne Moore Lawless; his grandchildren, Jennifer Bowen Winford (Alex), Lindsay Bowen Hall (Justin), Brittany Lawless Chandler (Will), Emily Kathryn Bowen, and Houston Taylor Lawless, and six great grandchildren. Art was preceded in death by his father and mother, Arthur D. Moore Sr. and Alice M. Moore of Pell City. Pallbearers will be Stan Nelson, Justin Hall, Alex Winford, Will Chandler, Houston Lawless, Rick Westbrook, Phil Webb, Steve Vinyard and Stephen Lafollette. Honorary pallbearers will be Mark Chestnut, Joe Chestnut, Pete Furnace, and Dick Ray. As he impacted many lives, Art was dearly loved by his family and community.
