Jack L. Moore, Sr., 78, of Lonoke, Arkansas, passed away Monday, April 10, 2017.  Jack was born February 7, 1939 in Furlow, Arkansas to the late Lee Roy and Jewell Moore.  He was preceded in death by sister Joyce MacFarlane and baby brother Billy Moore.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Jan Moore; daughter Margaret Powell; son Jackie (Donna) Moore; grandchildren Graham Powell, Jacob Powell (Laura Parker), Ben Powell, Mary (Tyler) Prescott, Jennifer (Rob) Raysor, Jamie (Alex) Moeller, Jessica Moore (Walker Bevill); great grandchildren Hailey Powell, Lila Raysor, Merin Raysor, and Landen Moeller.

A proud member of the Lonoke High School graduating class of 1957, Jack remained close to his fellow classmates throughout his lifetime. 

Jack worked for Rock Island Railroad-Biddle Shops, beginning as an apprentice and working his way to General Car Foreman.  He remained with Rock Island Railroad until it closed.  He loved working for the railroad, as well as those that he worked with.  He later worked as a Service Manager at McFadden-Clement Chevrolet. 

In his spare time, Jack enjoyed fixing small engines, building lawnmowers and fixing cars from spare parts.   He had a passion for antique automobiles and rebuilt a 1954 and 1957 Chevrolet.  He also had a love for fishing and eating bream.  He could be known for catching, cleaning, and eating them all in the same day.  He was proud of his family and loved that his great-grandchildren lovingly referred to him as “Jack.” 

He was a lifelong member of Concord United Methodist Church and was very proud of his Methodist heritage. 

One of Jack’s proud accomplishments was when he became a Master Mason and then later when he received his 50 year pin from Lonoke Lodge # 51.

The family would like to thank Dr. Baltz and his staff, as well as all of the caregivers at CARTI.  The family requests that memorials be made to the charity of your choice.

Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, April 12 at Boyd Funeral Home, Lonoke. Funeral Services will be at 2:00 p.m. Thursday at Concord United Methodist Church with burial in Concord Cemetery. www.boydfuneralhome.net.
