Larry Jay Moore

June 02, 1934 - August 14, 2022


Larry Jay Moore of La Mirada, 88 years of age, passed away peacefully Sunday, August 14, 2022 in his home with two of his granddaughters at his side.

He was born June 2, 1934 in Boone Iowa. The son of Theodore and Ethel Moore. He was the youngest of five children. As a young man he served his country well in the US Army and throughout his life was unfailingly patriotic.

Larry was faithfully active in his church, and taught Sunday School. He loved working with G-scale model trains, joyfully entertaining all guests and grandchildren. He was an avid Huskers fan and during College Football season, Larry could be found in his "red room" absorbing every pass. He took pride in the landscaping of his yards and was recognized for its beauty by the city of La Mirada.

Larry was preceded in death by the recent loss of his loving wife of 51 years, Reva Moore. Also, by his brother Owen Moore, sister Dorothy Bickers, and sister Phyllis Benson.

He is survived by his brother Max Moore of Rancho Cucamonga, California, his stepson David Southard of Jackson, California, 10 beloved grandchildren, and six great grandchildren.

Larry was dearly loved by his family, now home resting in the arms of the Lord.
