Craig S. Moore, 59, of Auxvasse, Missouri passed away Monday, September 10th, 2018.
A celebration of Craig’s life will be held at the residence of a close family friend, 6065 County Rd. 116, Fulton, MO 65251, on Saturday, September 15th from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Craig was born on July 27, 1959, in Sumter, South Carolina, the son of Walter and Joyce (Taylor) Moore.
He is a graduate of Truman High School in Independence, MO. The first of his family to attend college, he graduated with degrees in Philosophy and Political Science from Westminster College. During his freshman year there, he met his wife, Marsha Christensen. They married on May 16, 1981.
He was the owner of One Stop Custom in Auxvasse, operating alongside his son, Chris. He was a thoughtful manager, avid reader and exceptional father. Craig’s
greatest joy came from laughing, working, and playing with his children and grandchildren.
Survivors include his wife, Marsha Moore, five children: Chris (Sarah) Moore, of Auxvasse, Elizabeth (Hari) Bhogapurapu, of Naperville, IL., Josh (Kim) Moore, of Columbia, MO, Jennifer (Adam) Blumhagen, of Beaverton, OR and Alex Moore of St. Louis, MO; and eleven grandchildren, Christian, Collin, Colton, Cayden, Catherine, Caroline, Dhruthi Shreya, Esha, Akira, Eliza and Embry.
He is also survived by his mother Joyce and brother Randy (Tess) Moore of Independence, MO.
Craig was a man with high positive energy and patience. He was a strong believer in helping others outside of his circle and doing kind works anonymously. In his memory, the family suggests, in lieu of flowers, your own random acts of kindness to others. In addition to these random acts of kindness, memorial donations may also be made to the Little Free Library, the Super Sam Foundation or St. Jude’s.
