George "Leon" McMoran was born April 22, 1938 in Conway, AR a son to George "Woodrow" McMoran and Lola Mae Hogan McMoran and passed away at his home in Perryville at the age of 82 on December 25, 2020.
Leon was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church in Perryville, an avid fisherman, a sporting clay enthusiast, loved to hunt quail and pheasant he worked up until March at Perry County Day Services as a van driver where he never met a stranger. Leon and Phylis had previously owned Mac's Sporting Goods in Perryville where it was the "hang out" for him and his buddies to sit, drink coffee and gossip although to hear Leon and the men to say they didn't gossip. Leon's passion just didn't lie there; it reached it a little bit further. You could find him and Phylis where ever the grandchildren and great grandchildren were. Playing whatever sporting event it was. He was there to cheer them on, oh and if Allen was the referee, he was going to be there to haggle him. Those grandchildren were the light of his life to say the least. Our days are going to be sadder without the smile that Leon will bring us each day, but Heaven sure is sweeter with him there.
Leon is preceded in death by his parents and one brother: Gene McMoran.
He is survived by his wife of 30 wonderful years: Phylis Brown McMoran of Perryville. Four Sons: Allen McMoran and wife Mary Ellen of Conway, Charlie McMoran of Conway, Tommy Young and wife Misi of Perryville and Ricky Young of Bigelow; Daughter: Cathie Mainord and husband Larry of Houston; Grandchildren: Michael, Aaron, Ethan, Megan, Amber, Brady, Jordon, Austin, Laren, Tyler, Jessie, Amber and Sloan; Nine Great Grandchildren, along with numerous other family and friends.
Memorial services will be Wednesday, 1:00PM, December 30, 2020 at First Baptist Church in Perryville, with visitation being held 1 hour prior to services.
Service and arrangements are by Bob Neal and Sons Funeral Home #5 Bruce St. Morrilton, AR 72110, 501-354-1638. www.bobnealandsons.com

Phyllis, so sorry to hear that Leon has passed on. Very proud to call him my friend.
Although Wade and I never got a chance to head down to Sam Rayburn lake with Leon, Terry and others in the more recent years, the trips we did make are fond memories, including your wonderful hospitality! We are blessed to have shared those moments.
You, Allen and Charlie will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Phyllis, I am so sorry to hear about Leon. I have had lots of good times over the years anytime we all got together, and my Mother absolutely loved those times ! But our favorite had to be the New Orleans trip in your RV, with Leon and the can of Cheese Whiz. We have never laughed so hard, and I still laugh about it to this day.
Phyllis, Allen, and Charlie I want you to know you're in my thoughts and prayers, and sending love to you all.

Phyllis and family, we are so sorry to hear of Len's passing. He was a good man who never met a stranger, and always had an open door. Not sure how he put up with all of the extended family when we all piled in on y'all but we always felt welcome!! Dusty remembered getting his 1st hunting license at Mac's when we came home from CA!! Sending our love and prayers for all of you. Tolbert and Allena
