Lee Moore Obituary
Moore, Lee Elwood Lee, age 64 was born in Akron, Ohio on December 10, 1947. and passed unexpectedly during an emergency surgery into God's embrace on October 28, 2012. Lee leaves behind a legacy of joy ,blessing, love, courage and peace in the hearts and souls of all who knew him. He attended Kenmore High School and graduated from the University of Akron with a B.A. Degree in Education. He taught Jr. High School in Cincinnati, Ohio and Carmel Clay Indiana before finding his home in the retail industry His extensive career in retail management included Lazarus, Macys, Bonwit-Teller, Wolff Bros., Sanger Harris, Mervyn's and he retired from Kohls. His passion, compassion, imagination, and creativity earned him the respect of his peers and friends. Lee was loved and admired by more people than we may ever know. His caring and nurtur-ing ways inspired and encouraged all of us to be more and want to become more. His guidance counsel, and mentoring were invaluable. The integrity and courage with which he lived his life remains worthy of emulation. Lee had many unrealized plans and ambitions. He loved the new freedom to travel to long anticipated destinations, enjoyed his yard work and took great pride in the results of his efforts. He often referred to it as his "therapy" Lee enjoyed his life, his many friends and deeply loved his family. Lee Moore lived a life that mattered. The light that illumes our universe is temporarily dimmed. Lee will be truly missed by all who where fortunate to know his friendship. Like his father, Elwood and sister Joyce (Moore-Belacic) who passed before him, his light too will brighten our hearts forever. Lee is survived by mother Angeline Moore (Perri) sister, Terry Irvine (Denny). Brother in law James Belacic, niece Tiffany Belacic and his life partner of 42 years, Dennis Reed. Lee is also survived by numerous beloved extended family members and friends he cherished and never took for granted. There will be a private viewing for family Nov. 2, at Ted Dickey West Funeral Home, 7990 George Bush Turnpike, 75252. Lee would appreciate donations to the SPCA or any in his remembrance.
