I had the honor of meeting Louis when I was a Chaplain Resident at CMC. During my interview I shadowed Louis and learned that he and my uncle, Rev. Calvin Runnels, were friends. Louis had even met my mother and grandparents. My grandmother affectionately named him, "Kingfish" because she said he did everything in big style and fashion!
Louis and I became friends and colleagues. It was a pleasure working with him during my time at CMC. And during those frustrating days where we were overwhelmed, he'd simply say, "Jonathan, it's gotta be another way!"
Take your rest, my friend. Servant, well done.

To the family: we offer our sincere prayers and condolences. Although I had known of Rev. Moore for many years, it was not until late 2019 and early 2020 that his humble and quiet spirit would come into our lives more fully. He very humbly started attending Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Baldwin Ave, Charlotte, N.C. We enjoyed his pleasant spirit and his greetings of love and peace. May the God who loved him best, give you peace and comfort during this time.

I have called Louis my teammate for nearly five years, but he was more than that. He was my friend. He was always willing to share his views even when you did not ask him. His boldness and willingness to tell me when I was wrong helped me to grow as a chaplain. I moved to Charlotte to learn how to serve those different than myself in love. God worked through Louis to help me to grow in this area and I will keep growing because Louis helped me understand that better ways exist. He inspired me to be apart of the solution and not the problem.

Every time I come across someone who is struggling with life, I remember his famous expression: “There’s gotta be a better way!”Louis is experiencing that “better way” now because he trusted in the One who showed us the Way, Jesus Christ. I can’t wait to see Louis again in Heaven and hear all his wonderful stories. At that point, I hope he will tell me which ones are true and which ones stretch the truth.

Every Sunday before he prepare to Preach he had a story or a joke. He was a awesome Preacher . It's going to be hard because Pastor Moore and I celebrate the same birthday 2/21.

Louis, I am sorry to see you gone now. One fine gentleman, with an extraordinary collection of neckties. You were always so comfortable to chat with at Dowd YMCA.

Wow! It is so hard to believe that you are gone. No one to borrow great books from. NO ONE TO HELP ME WRITE PAPERS. You have been an excellent friend. My grandkids could never have had a more wonderful Godfather.I know you want us to be strong. Life will truly be sad without you.

I have known Rev Moore for many years always a loving and caring person. Had the warmest heart for everyone he meets. Always smiling and greeting you with a hug. I worked for Atrium and each time I need a someone to pray with me or just need that spiritual talk I can call upon him and he will be there. Telling me that God will always be with you.And when ever I need him he is only a phone call away. Rev Moore I will miss your smile and the loving words you would always say . Take your rest and let God do the rest. Love you pastor Moore. Demetrice
