Moe worked as a commercial fisherman. He was a Christian by faith.

Moe enjoyed the simple things in life. He rarely missed a softball game when his daughter played, he could always be found in the stands wearing a custom made t-shirt.  The Mississippi River always called him so his job as a commercial fisherman was more of a past time he was gladly paid for. Drinking coffee with his friends, fish fry's with family, homemade apple or cherry pie and of course lotto scratch offs were some of his favorite things. He loved spending time with his family and grandchildren, he would often be known to take them to coffee with him.  More recently he truly enjoyed spending any time he could with his great grandson, Maveryck.

Pallbearers will be Eric Green, Doug Bowen, Joel Smith, James Lain, Billy Lain and Jason Pritchett.

Honorary Pallbearers will be Scott Anderson, Roy Hark, Jimmy Lain, Jason Krigbaum and Jake Vanhoose.
