Norm and I are so sorry to hear about the loss of Larry. We will surely miss his humor, his wonderful company and his spirited love of life.

I am a retired Ophthalmic Technician who had the privilege of working with Dr Moore at McPherson Hospital when Dr Stocker was there and again at NCEENT in later years. He was always a delight to be around and kept us laughing with his antics. He was also a great Physician who cared for So many patients over the years. My heartfelt condolences go out to his loving family. I am blessed to have known him.

I will never forget how caring he was to my daughter Dawn, He never gave up trying to fine out why she was losing sight in her right eye until UNC Doctors’ found the tumors. He still continued to be her doctor until her death in 1984. He remain to be mine and her father’s doctor until his retirement. I have missed him very much. Paula Thompson

Condolence from Ann Pleasant-Cook on March 7th, 2014 12:00 am

Moore Family: My thoughts and prayers have been with you since Dr. Moore has been sick. I have great memories of my 30+ years as his secretary at McPherson and NCEENT. I enjoyed every day and he always made me laugh. His patients all loved him and enjoyed his great attitude and help over the years. He was also so helpful and caring for my Mom and my family. We all have great memories to share.
He was a very talented person and loved helping his patients. Wish I could attend the service but due to my health, it would be too much. I will definitely be thinking about you tomorrow. Take care. Ann

When we lose our loved one to death. We are troubled & worried & sick at heart, & our plans are upset, & your world is falling apart. Remember God’s ready & waiting to share, the burden you find much too, heavy to bear- so with faith let go & let God lead you into a brighter & less troubled day. Remember that a time is coming when death, will be no more. Rev. 21:4 What a wonderful hope of seeing our loved one again.

Condolence from Raymond J. Lawrence on December 12th, 2015 6:32 pm

I am a cousin of Lawrence Moore who last saw him when he was a youngster. I am a nephew of his father. I worked his father’s orchard in Virginia as a college age student. It would be interesting to meet with Lawrence’s family and catch with family lore.

My mother. Gertrude was Larry’s aunt, the sister of Larry’s father. I have many memories of Larry’s father and various family gatherings in the middle of the 20th century
