Laurence Clinton Moore, better know as Larry, was born September 21, 1943 in Bakersfield, California and passed away June 22, 2021 at his home of 55 years in Glennville, California. He Graduated from North High School, where at the same time, started his lengthy career with the County of Kern. Starting out as a Greenskeeper at North Kern Golf course then leading to the Road Department while also serving as a Reserve Deputy in the Glennville and Lake Isabella areas. He ended his career retiring from the Kern County Fire Department in 1995 as a Fire Heavy Equipment Operator at Station 45 in Edison, California, where he was given the nickname "Twiggy".

Larry ran his own cattle for many years in the Glennville/Woody area and also worked For Dave and Betty Lavers on the Lavers Ranch in Glennville. In his spare time while working and after retirement he enjoyed running his heavy equipment, fixing water wells, and welding for friends and neighbors. There wasn't much he could not fix or build! He also enjoyed his time as the Swine leader for the Sierra Mountaineers 4-H club and serving on the Swine Committee for the Kern County Fair. Behind his gruff voice and intimidating presence was the biggest teddy bear heart. Larry loved helping anyone in need and would do whatever needed in order to do so without thought for himself.

Larry is survived by his loving wife, of 50 years, Mary; son Michael (Kim) of Texas; daughter Melissa Bias (Howard) of Glennville; and grandson Case of Texas.

As per Larry's wishes, there will be no public services held. Larry will be interred at Oak Grove Cemetery in Glennville, California.

We have lots of good memories with Larry. His favorite snack on duty was his "Moorehill" jam (apricot pineapple) and a sleeve of crackers. I will always remember our friend. Rest well Twiggy.
