Dennis Moore, 64, of Baytown, TX, passed away November 7, 2020. He was born in St. Louis, MO on Christmas day in 1955 to Brady and Joan Moore. He attended St. Mary’s High School in south St Louis. After graduation, Dennis moved to Houston and worked as a driver for Coca-Cola. He heard Budweiser was hiring and being his beverage of choice at the time, it sounded like a good idea. For over 41 years, he found a home and an extended family with Wismer Distributing. He was passionate about sports. In grade school and high school, he excelled in basketball, baseball, ad soccer. As a lifelong St. Louis Cardinal fan, he regularly traded jabs with other Cardinal fans around the country through online chat rooms. Football season was spent attending every home game of the football Cardinals with his dad at Busch Stadium. He never forgot his roots. Dennis was introduced to Texas High school football by his friend, Chuck Nute, and was hooked on the Friday night lights. In 2011, traveling all over Texas, Dennis attended 55 games in one season. He had a remarkable memory and could reference players and games he witnessed. He was an avid golfer. If it was first light on Saturday, Dennis was on the first tee. He wanted the first tee so no one ahead of him and his friends would slow them down. It was a whirlwind for 18 holes and he was happiest on those mornings. Dennis joined Lee College’s exercise program when he was introduced to their basketball program. As a talented high school player, his next passion was sparked. The Lee College Rebels basketball, volleyball teams, and coaches welcomed their number one fan. Often traveling with the teams to away games, Dennis was a huge supporter. Beyond the games, he developed an annual scholarship award for both of the teams sponsored By Wismer and the Dixon family. His devotion did not go unnoticed. One of his proudest days was his induction into the Lee College Legends. Dennis possessed an extraordinary memory and recall. He interacted over the phone with at least 60 Wismer employees regularly, along with a great many sports fans he came to know. Going through his phone after he passed to get in touch with friends, he didn’t have a single number stored. Amazing. Dennis is preceded in death by his parents, Brady and Joan. He is survived by his sister Melissa DeGraeve (Steve), his nieces, Elizabeth and Samantha, and his nephews, Joseph and James of Lees Summit, MO and his aunt, Sue Bukowsky of Moline, Illinois. Dennis had friends all over Texas and Missouri that will truly miss his wit and good nature. Rest in Peace. Many thanks to friends for your kind support and caring thoughts and prayers. A memorial service will occur Saturday, December 5, 2020 at 10:00 AM at Navarre Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 2444 Rollingbrook Drive, Baytown, TX 77521.

Dennis was such a special guy- he was not just an employee but a friend. He always had a smile to greet you and he loved being at work. Any job he was given he gave 150% - you always knew when he was doing something it would be taken care of !

He will be missed by everyone at Wismer Distributing - he was family to us ❤️

Now he has joined his mom & dad 🙏🏻

The only comfort I can find in Dennis's passing is knowing he isn't suffering. He is no longer in a world of pain, confusion, and being unable to continue his way of life. To know Dennis, you have a friend, a sports nut, and someone that always had a smile. He didn't usual miss a chance to go to a get together, especially one that involved friends, food, and drinking. His "BUD" family was his family. When he left this earth, heaven's gates must have opened extra wide, as he took so much love and so many prayers with him. God bless you, D.,
Love you, your friends, Bobby and Nelda Fayle
