Marty was born in Farmington, New Mexico, on April 19, 1941, to Maudie and Johnnie Moore at their family homestead. He was the youngest of nine children, affectionately known as "Shag." After graduating from high school, he went to California, running track at El Camino Junior College. Marty earned a B.A. and Master Degree in Psychology from New Mexico State University. He enjoyed his years as a psychology professor at New Mexico Junior College before moving to Lubbock, Texas, where he continued his education and began his career as a LPC in the mental health profession, including nine years in Beaumont, Texas. In 2013, Marty retired from Magellan Behavioral Health in Plano, Texas. Marty was a lifelong athlete who enjoyed all aspects of health and fitness. He participated in numerous marathons, triathlons, and loved swimming up until his final days. He was an original competitor of the Hotter'N Hell 100 bike race in 1982. The loves of Marty's life were his two daughters, Fantasy and Dynasy. They shared a close bond and have cherished memories of caving excursions, Fun Runs, road trips to the Moore family reunions and making homemade ice cream. Marty cherished his time with his girls and experiencing all phases of their lives. In his retirement, Marty spent time attending his nine grandchildren's sporting events, which brought such joy to his life.

They have been blessed with great moments together over the last three months, allowing the family to say goodbye in a beautiful way. He will be laid to rest in his hometown. We will always remember your piercing eyes, your manly mustache, your perpetual motion and thirst for knowledge. You were always honest in conversation, and there was little doubt about where you stood. Simply put, the face of love. The family would like to thank the staff at Bridgemoor Transitional Care and the caregivers of Home Instead for their enduring love and support. Each of you touched our hearts.
