Obituary of Hubert Moore
Hubert Moore was born December 14, 1937 in Riverside, Texas to the late Huggy and Minnie Moore. Minnie was affectionately known to all as “Gran-Mammy”. Hubert was the youngest baby boy of twelve siblings. During this time, the Moore’s were the pillars of their community. The Church of Christ had their weekly Sunday services in the Moore’s home. He loved God, and the love of God spilled over into his love for people. This foundation contributed to the independent, wise, and strong man of integrity Hubert would be throughout his life. Hubert and his siblings were raised on a farm in Riverside, Texas. In the 1950’s, the family moved to the city of Houston, Texas. During his teenage years, he helped care for his nieces and nephew. He was always surrounded by family. The family lived in the Sixth Ward, Fourth Ward, and Settegast areas. He attended Brock Elementary School, E.O.
