Harvey Moore

February 02, 1927 ‒ January 18, 2016

Centerburg, Ohio

Harvey Moore, age 88, of Centerburg died unexpectedly Monday, January 18, 2016 at St. Ann’s Hospital in Westerville.

He was born on February 2, 1927 in Viper, Kentucky the son of the late Fred V. and Sara Elizabeth (Turner) Moore.

In the early 50’s Harvey was introduced to a young lady who was friends with his sister.  They lived on opposite sides of the hill in Viper, Kentucky.  That young lady was Bonnie Adams and they were married on January 7th, 1956.  Harvey and Bonnie just celebrated 60 years together as husband and wife before he was granted his eternal reward in Heaven.

He was a veteran of the United States Army and was stationed in Germany during the Korean War.

In 1967 Harvey and Bonnie bought the farm in Centerburg where they worked the land, raised hogs, and gardened nearly any vegetable you could imagine.  Throughout the years, he worked for Cellar Lumber in Marengo, Kit Manufacturing in Mount Vernon, and retired from Carter Lumber in Condit.

Harvey was a member of the Centerburg Free Will Baptist Church.  You could find him there on Sundays singing and proudly praising the Lord.

As long as he was catching fish, Harvey liked fishing…he’d go out to the pond on his property or the Alum Creek.

If you knew Harvey, you knew he loved his word searches and carried them everywhere he went.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Bonnie; sisters Beatrice of Kansas and Mary of Michigan; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by siblings, Lois, Homer, Lorene, Henrietta, Hoyt, Burley, twins, Thelma and Elmer, Frank, and Pauline.

Friends may call on the family on Thursday, January 21, 2016 from 4-7 PM at the DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home, 637 North State Route 61, Sunbury, Ohio 43074.  Funeral services will be held there on Friday at 11:00 AM with Pastor Mark Tuggle officiating.  Burial with full military honors will follow in Bloomfield Cemetery.

Memorial contributions, if desired, may be made to the Centerburg Freewill Baptist Church, 377 North Clayton Street, Centerburg, Ohio 43011.

  • God has called you home but, you have left many wonderful memories with those of us who are left behind.

  • May the Lord grant peace to those who are mourning your passing. I always enjoyed our conversations about history, the Laura Ingalls books, and the good ole days. Someday we will meet again.

  • Uncle Harvey I will always love you. Every time I have seen a word search puzzle, I’d smile and think of you. Now it will be bittersweet still with a smile and love. Thank you for all the memories and love. I’ll see you in heaven one day, so look for me. Until then Goodbye.

    • Uncle Harvey was a kind man. He always came to see us when he was back home visiting.

      Remember me with laughter
      If you remember me at all
      Remember me as younger
      Before everything was lost
      Remember me as a life
      Lived while in its’ glory
      Remember me as a friend
      As the circle tells my story
