Moore
2 days a month for 16 years the last 5 as my direct supervisor. 3 deployments, many other annual tours to Texas and Fl. We had countless private conversations about life and love, military and kids, you never let me live down every time Alabama barely scrapped by Ga in football. You are a comrade that turned into a friend and became family! So many stories we’ll all look back on and laugh. So many unsaid words that will be left till we meet again. You were a great father and I know you loved those kids more than anything else! You’ll be missed more than you could’ve ever imagined. I love you brother! Till Valhalla

I met Chris when he was a young A1C, he was full of motivation and eager to learn. He was already a seasoned Defender, to me. We talked a lot and I learned a lot from him. He was a great guy and dear friend. When I was feeling off he would pull me back in. "Awe, come on Tiny, it ain't that bad." I can still hear his voice and his laugh.

Fair Winds and Following Seas brother, until we meet again.

Chris,
The support and kindness shown to all of your family by the Air Force during this time has been exceptional. They have done so much for us in this time of need. The many calls, hugs, visits, and just taking care of things in your honor has just simply been overwhelming. You would be so proud.

Chris, you are an amazing man. The many comments expressed to us by all your friends and people you worked and served with, further confirm that. Years ago, when you told me you were joining the Air Force to serve our country, I told you I wished you would reconsider because I did not think it was a good fit for you. You always had such sweet spirit along with a kind and generous heart. I thought you should choose a career more closely related with helping others. Well, as it turns out Chris, you used that inherent goodness to serve others while also serving our country. You did so many things for so many people with nothing expected in return. You are a true patriot. You loved your country. You loved all people. You loved God, your children, and all of your family. As I reflect back on that conversation, I realize now that you made the right choice and I was wrong. Your family and I are so proud of you and you will always be remembered by me as an American hero. I will miss you so much but I know in my heart that I will see you again. I have no doubt that in Heaven I will find you helping others and looking for ways you can assist me. Roll Tide Chris. Love Dad

When I heard of your passing Chris, I couldn't believe it. It is still unbelievable. I will cherish the times that you and I work together. You were always there to make us smile and laugh, if we were having a bad day. I will miss you Chris. May God continue to bless your family and comfort them through this difficult time.

Chris and his brother Jeff were good friends with my son Chris Miller during middle school and high school years as they were neighbors of ours. We had become acquainted with Chris again when he came to Monrovia church with his wife Keri. He was a great person and friend.

Chris adored his children more than anything. He was so proud of Cameron and Emmersyn. They were the light of his life. Working with Chris was always a guarantee that the job would get done. He fought hard and long for his country, and always stepped forward to defend the US or a friend. Few people are as dedicated as he was. We will miss him, and are truly saddened by his untimely loss. God bless you, Chris, and be at peace in Heaven. Our prayers go out to his children and family.

I remember when Chris and his fellow Airmen left for one of their deployments...zero dark thirty taking a bus from Maxwell to Atlanta to overseas.

I remember praying for them as they left, for their families as they were separated, and for their safety until they returned home.

And I remember the joy, and pride, and relief at their homecoming.

I'll continue to pray for God's peace and comfort for the 908 SF and MSgt Moore's family till, by faith in Jesus Christ, we all meet again in glory at our final homecoming.

I've worked with Chris for a few months at the TSA - Huntsville international Airport. He was so nice, friendly and always joking and smiling. When he was promoted to supervisor, I was assigned to him. He was always there to back me up whenever times became difficult. He said if I ever needed someone to talk to, he'd be there to listen. And he was. He was a great co-worker, supervisor and listener. He will miss him dearly. Rest in Peace Chris.

Chris

Our hearts broke today 
When we heard you had died.
Rivers flowed with tears today,
Throats aching as we cried.

When our daughter married you
You became our Son.
Did you know we loved you
As if you were our own.

You showed our daughter love,
Kindness and respect.
You chose to serve our country 
With honor you did protect.

We became grandparents,
Our hearts leaped with joy.
God blessed you with children,
A girl and a boy.

Did you know we loved you?
To us you were our son.
Today Our hearts are breaking 
We can’t believe you are gone.
