Kenneth D. Moore, 75, died Monday February 7, 2005 in Davenport after a lengthy illness. Memorial Services will be held Saturday February 12, 2005 at 4 PM at the West Davenport Kingdom Hall of Jehovah''s Witness at 3956 N. Pine Street in Davenport. Inurnment will take place at a later date at Davenport Memorial Cemetery. Survivors include his wife Pat; a son Dan (Juanita) Moore of Davenport, and daughters Debra Moore of Port Townsend, WA and Paula (Marvin) Folker and granddaughter Lindsay Folker of Silvis, IL. Also surviving are two brothers Lee W. Moore of Blue Grass, IA and Donald J. Moore of Davenport. Ken was born July 15, 1929 in Davenport to Warren and Ruth Moore. He married Patricia Parker on May 9, 1953 in Davenport, IA. Ken enjoyed his secular working life as a carpenter, beginning his apprenticeship in 1954. Throughout his life he enjoyed the opportunity to work with his hands and was able to take pride in the hundreds of area homes and buildings he had the opportunity to be a part of. It brought him special satisfaction to have built three of the homes his family lived in, and to have assisted his children in the construction of their homes. Ken was known for his compassion and caring, his firm handshake often saying more than Words could. As one of Jehovah''s Witnesses he found great joy in helping others and volunteering his time and abilities in many special capacities within the congregation(s). Dedicating his life in 1938 to the ministry of declaring God''s purpose for mankind, his commitment and faith never wavered, as he cheerfully volunteered his energies in the ministry as long as he was able. He took humble pride in playing a significant role in the planning and actual construction of the West Davenport Kingdom Hall. Even as Ken has struggled for the past several years with the ravages of Alzheimer''s disease he has been known for his cheerful disposition and smile. At this the time of his death, those who knew Ken are reminded of his Strong faith & his incessant ministry of the hope of an earthly resurrection.
