Thomas “Tommy” Wayne Moore (August 30, 1944 – January 8, 2021) was born at Banana River Naval Air Station to Thomas Watson Moore and Alice Moore (later Alice Cowart). He grew up in South Florida with his mother and stepfather, Lloyd Cowart. He joined the Air Force right after high school, and married his beloved wife, Joyce, soon thereafter. He served his country for 20 years, including tours in Vietnam, Laos, Germany, and many stateside posts, retiring from the Air Force in 1984 while stationed at MacDill AFB in Tampa. He continued his civil service career working in the IT department for both the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

Tommy is predeceased by his parents, stepfather, and sister, Jenny Pearce. He is survived by his wife, Joyce Moore; brother, David Moore (Kathy); sisters, Brenda Jabieski (Keith), and Linda Rousseau; children, Terri Christiano (Salvatore), Mona Panacek (Ryan), and Kim Moore; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

Tommy was an avid motorcyclist for many years, and a longtime member of the Christian Motorcyclist Association. Throughout his life he also enjoyed working with computers, reading, woodworking, archery, blacksmithing, and shooting. Family held a special place in his heart, and he was especially proud when he became a grandfather & great-grandfather.

While our hearts are full of sorrow, we also rejoice in the assurance that our beloved Husband, Dad, and Papa is resting in the arms of his savior, Jesus Christ.

I did not know you for long but we shared some great rides and good eats. Your partner in life Joyce took some memorable pictures and made our shared experience memorable. As a fellow veteran I valued your service to this great country. Rest in peace, my friend.
