Ronnie Moore, of Liberty, MO, a humble and resilient legend who was always thankful and thanked everyone, even until his final breath, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 29, 2022. He was 71 years old. Ronnie was a Christmas baby and was born on December 25, 1950, in Kansas City, Missouri, to Glenn and Dorothy Moore (Wright) and was the oldest of 5 siblings.
On June 21, 1969, Ronnie married the love of his life, Marilyn Ebert in Kansas City, Missouri, and to this union two children were born: Victoria and R.J. Ronnie was a hard worker since the age of 14 years old and had worked as a body shop man for the Area Transit Authority body shop in Kansas City for 39 dedicated years. Most recently, he was delivering part-time for Advanced Auto Parts. Although Ronnie had a strong work ethic, his main priority was being a family man and always doing anything and everything for his kids. Attending his grandkids’ games and sporting events made him incredibly happy.
Ronnie was a great husband, father, brother, son, uncle, and friend, who was always giving and would put others first before himself. His family knew him as a man with a heart of gold, who never judged anyone. He was a selfless man who was kind to others, loved people and enjoyed talking, making new friends everywhere he went, as Ronnie never met a stranger. Ronnie and Marilyn loved traveling together, dancing and always enjoyed a great party. He enjoyed music and going to concerts. Nothing could stop Ronnie, as he was a highly active man who kept going. He enjoyed working in the yard, whether it be planting trees or marigolds, or cleaning and filling his bird feeders for his beloved Hummingbirds! Ronnie was very particular and worked meticulously, ensuring whatever he did looked good. He loved sports, but baseball was his favorite. He was an avid Kansas City Royals fan and seasonal ticket holder. Ronnie will always be remembered as an ornery guy, who enjoyed movies, especially anything Marvel Comics related who was well loved. He is dearly loved by his family and many friends and will be greatly missed.
Ronnie is survived by his wife of almost 53 beautiful years, Marilyn Moore; children, Victoria Walker, and R.J. Moore (Jennifer Wittenburg); grandchildren, Johnny Walker, and McKenzie Moore; brother, Glen Earl Moore; twin sisters, Joy (Jim) Sisson and Jan (Will) Berger; sister, Trisha Lampkins; and many in-laws, nephews, nieces, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn Harley, and Dorothy Margaret Moore.
