May 25, 1935 — September 8, 2022

Lynn “Jack” Moore, age 87, of Eaton, OH passed away on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at Reid Hospital in Richmond, IN.  He was born May 25, 1935 in Bristol, VA to the late William Elbert and Goldia May Moore.  Jack was a 1955 Eaton High School graduate where he played football, basketball and track.  After graduation, he married Marilyn and joined the U.S. Army Honest John Rocket Artillery, and played on the U.S. Army basketball team. He then worked many years at The Register-Herald alongside his father-in-law Harold Sell, as printer and advertising sales rep. He continued in sales in the water softener business while also working bi-vocational in local churches Eaton Baptist Temple and Lewisburg First Baptist Church, as music director, teacher, associate pastor and church planting. He then was owner and operator of Shaver's Ice Cream Factory, along with longtime friend, Don Ditmer until they sold the business in the 90's and he went into full-time ministry as the Pastor of Harrison Street Baptist Church, New Madison, Ohio and Medway Baptist Church, Medway, Ohio, where he then retired from full-time ministry. After retirement, Jack still worked in local churches as teacher and mentor for young pastors, and was currently a member of Cornerstone Grace (formerly Memorial Baptist) Church, Eaton Ohio.  Jack was also active in the Eaton community, coaching Little League Baseball, Eaton Athletic Boosters Club, where he was active in starting the Preble County All-Star Teams, coached and played Industrial league basketball, he was a member of the Gideon Bible Association, where he was the first president in the Eaton area.  Even after retiring, he helped coach Little League and YMCA basketball for his great grandsons.  Jack was passionate in his love for his family, his Lord, his church family and his community.  Everyone who knew him, knew his great love by his actions. As his oldest granddaughter stated, "Even if Grandpa had never told me he loved me, he showed me his love everyday with his actions."  Love is Action, that sums up Jack Moore.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers: James, Wallace, Gene, William Jr., Joe, Vernie and Johnny Moore; and sisters: Helen Davis, Lexie Killen and Dorothy Davis.  He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Marilyn Sell Moore; sons: Mike (Toni) Moore and Marty (Laura) Moore; daughter Lisa (Joe) Swartsell; numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren; brother Lawrence Moore; sister Becky Hubek; and many nieces and nephews.  Visitation will be held on Thursday, September 15, 2022 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Cornerstone Grace Church,1307 East Main Street, Eaton, OH.  Funeral service for Jack will be held at 10:00 am on Friday, September 16, 2022 also at the church with Dane Driver and Pastor Rodney Reynolds officiating.  Burial will follow at Mound Hill Cemetery in Eaton.  Gard Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Eaton is assisting the family with arrangements.  Online condolences and other remembrances may be sent to www.gardfuneralhome.com.
