Harry Lawrence Moore, 63, of Buena Vista died June 24


Harry Hansford Moore, 63, of Buena Vista, was called home to be with our Lord and Savior, Saturday, June 24, 2017, at Carillion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

Harry was born Aug. 12, 1953, in Hackensack, N.J., to the late Lawrence Harry Moore and Doris Patterson Moore.  He was preceded in death by two brothers, Danny Moore and Larry Moore, and a sister, Patsy McCormick.

Harry is survived by his loving wife, Janet Lee Smith Moore, who loved and cared for him for 35 years; one special grandson who he helped raise as his own son, Isaiah Sweet; two children, Wayne Lee Carter Jr. (wife Julie Carter), and Carrie Patterson (fiancé Kevin Allen); and grandchildren, Ashley Campbell (husband Joey Campbell), Hilary Carter, Derek Carter and Andre Allen; great-grandson, Kyle Campbell; a loving and devoted sister, Nancy Moore Tyree; a brother, Randy Moore; nieces and nephews; and his life-long friend, Buzzy Thompson.

Harry graduated from Lexington High School in 1972 and worked for Burlington/Mohawk Industries for 20 years.  He loved his family, friends, playing horseshoes, N.Y. Giants, fishing and college sports of any kind.  He had lots of friends and never met a stranger.  He had a contagious personality; you couldn’t help to love him. 

The family will receive family and friends with a visitation night on Friday, June 30, from 6 to 8 at Bolling, Grose, and Lotts Funeral Home in Buena Vista; no graveside service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in memory of “Harry Moore” at the Bank of Botetourt.
