David Wesley Moore, age 71, entered the gates of heaven on February 7th, 2021, after a courageous, hard fought battle against pancreatic cancer. His loving wife of fifty years and three adoring daughters were by his side. David had a life long relationship with God and lived a life of strong faith.David was born to Wesley and Patricia (Benjamin) Moore on July 9th, 1949, in Woodward, Oklahoma. He was the oldest of five boys and always kept a close relationship with his brothers. He loved growing up with a large family and helping on the family farm. His life was well lived and he was well loved. He treasured the simple things; God, family and farming were at the center of his life for his entire life.
David survived childhood polio and never let it slow him down. He attended Woodward schools and graduated from WHS in 1967. He remained friends with many of his classmates and always enjoyed getting together with fellow Boomers. David attended college at Southwestern Oklahoma State University where he played in the marching band. He also attended Panhandle State University.
David found a love that stood the test of time. He married the love of his life, Jeannine Wilson, on February 5, 1971. Over fifty years, they grew their family, their farm and collected a lifetime of precious memories.
In 1979, David went to work for the Bank of Woodward. The bank went through many name changes, before he retired from BancCentral in 2020. Over his forty-one year career, he enjoyed many friendships with coworkers and customers.
Though he spent his days at the bank, his evening were on the farm. He followed his fathers footsteps and kept cattle, horses and farmland. David was a gun enthusiast and spent a lifetime building his collection. He was a proud member of the National Rifle Association and earned the highest level of membership, the Patriot Life Member. Over the years, he spent time serving his church and community. He was a life long member of First Baptist Church and dedicated many years to teaching 4th grade Sunday school. David was a long time member of Ambucs, and throughout his girls childhood he spent his weekends coaching their softball teams. He was a dedicated daddy and earned a deep admiration, love and respect from his girls.
Like many people in northwest Oklahoma, every summer, David looked forward to the Woodward Elks Rodeo. In 2001, he was invited to join the rodeo committee. He served 20 years and loved every minute of it. His fellow committee members can vouch for his dedicated work ethic. And though his friends will tell you he is an honest, humble, patriotic, hard working family man, he did enjoy taking a gamble. David always played the lottery and could spend hours playing cards.
He treasured his family and was especially proud of his eight grandchildren. He loved his role being a grandpa. There was not a day that went by that he and Jeannine did not talk about their grandkids. Davids favorite thing was a house full of family.
David is preceded in death by his brother, Bennie Moore; his in-laws, Jim and Mary Jo Wilson; and two sisters in law, Kerry Moore and Kim Moore, all of Woodward.
He is survived by his loving wife, Jeannine, of the home; three daughters, Tina McGarry and husband, Brian, of Frisco, Texas, Heather Baggs and husband, Lonnie, and Shannon Eslick of Woodward; eight grandchildren; Ashton, Peyton and Dalton Baggs, Cameron, Ashlynn and Addison McGarry, Lydia and Luke Eslick; his parents, Wesley and Patricia (Benjamin) Moore of Woodward; his brothers; Tim and Yolanda, Jim and Renee, and Mark Moore and Lil Parks all of Woodward. Many beloved nieces, nephews, other family members and friends.
