Rodney Moore



Mooreville- Rodney Mitchell Moore, 61, was born a twin to parents Oscar Frank and Eula Mitchell Moore in Mobile, Alabama on September 13, 1956. He passed from death to eternal life on September 20, 2017 after a short illness. We celebrate him and his life.

At the age of 13, he moved with his family to Tupelo. He graduated from Tupelo High School in 1975. While at Tupelo High, he participated in the band and worked at the Bonanza Restaurant. After graduation, he moved to Jackson, Tennessee to train and manage a Pizza Inn. After some years, he moved back to Tupelo to earn his associate's degree in Electronics Technology at ICC while working a full time job. His focus was to feed his analytic mind and his mechanical talent! He worked for Burroughs Incorporated in Columbus, MS, Montgomery, AL, New Orleans, LA, Fayetteville, NC and Charleston, South Carolina. The last 30 years, he worked as a Customer Service Engineer for Siemens Medical System.

Rodney had the biggest heart in giving and serving. He served on many committees, taught Sunday School and served as a Deacon at his church East Heights Baptist. He was saved while in Montgomery, AL at Rigby Street Baptist Church. His greatest hobby was tinkering and repairing about anything. When he accomplished mending a piece of junk, he was as happy as one who owned "The Hope Diamond"! His motto in life was: "When you work, work hard, and when you play, play hard!"

He married Jill Pearce on August 16, 1987 and they enjoyed 30 years together. He was
blessed with two beautiful, smart girls. He enjoyed grilling, motorcycle riding, traveling, eating,fishing, camping and so many things. He had many wonderful friends and family.
