MARSHALL ALAN MOORE Marshall Alan Moore, 68, a retired farmer, passed away peacefully at his home on February 5, 2017. He had been suffering from numerous ailments and his body finally wore out. He was born on January 18, 1949 to Leo V. and Mary Evelyn Moore in San Diego, California. A miracle baby he was dubbed in the newspapers as he survived a surgery he wasn't expected to survive. The family loaded up all their belongings in a truck and one car when Marshall was young and headed north with high hopes for a bright future working the arid land of Eastern Washington that became farmable after the war. He grew up on the farm and worked it all his life in some capacity until the day he died. His father was one of the original homesteaders North of Pasco in the Columbia Basin and he was proud to work the land as his father had. His son, Tyson, continued the tradition and worked along side his father until Marshall was no longer able. He married Darlene Stevens and together they had two children, Nicole and Tyson. He raised up his step-children, Michael and Sherri Stevens as his own. His passions in life were many. He loved rodeo and in his prime he made the rounds to many local rodeos competing in steer wrestling. He enjoyed hunting, shooting, fishing, gambling, drinking, driving fast and socializing. He had many friends. He married his wife Nancy Heaton in Reno, Nevada. Next month they would have celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary together. In each other they found their match and partner. He was preceded in death by his parents; he is survived by his wife Nancy Moore, children Nicole Lions, Marshall Tyson Moore and Brittanie Green; his step-children Troy Heaton, Kirk Heaton, Michael Stevens and Sherri Rogers-Stevens; his brothers Darroll Higginbotham and Gary Moore; his sister Patricia Mark; and many grandchildren. Memorial services will be held Saturday, February 11th at 11 a.m. at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Eltopia, Wa.
