Kent Moore

October 21, 1951January 1, 2020

Kent Moore passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on January 1, 2020 at the age of 68.

Kent was born in Kansas City, MO the son of Norman and Betty (Billings) Moore. He was raised in Cameron, MO and graduated from Cameron High School, the class of 1970. Kent spent 29 years with the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department before retiring as a Sergeant in 2001.

He leaves behind his beloved family – his wife, Kay, son Matt (Tracey Fife), and daughters Amanda Harris, Marissa (Frank) Valdez and Katelyn (Baron) Williams. He also leaves his four cherished grandchildren Seth Sanstra, Zack and Lexi Valdez and Bentley Williams.

Kent was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Steve.

More than anything, Kent loved being a father and grandfather—his children and grandchildren were the center of his life. His other passions were golf and baseball and he followed the Kansas City Royals faithfully.

Family and friends will gather at McGilley Antioch Chapel on Saturday, January 4 from 1:00PM-3:00PM for a memorial visitation.

The family requests no flowers and has set up a memorial fund in Kent’s name with the Salvation Army. He always admired their work with the citizens he served during his time on the Department.
