Michael Gerald Moore

Michael Gerald Moore, 78, of Simpsonville, husband of the late Reba Moore for 56 years, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Friday, September 30, 2022 while at home surrounded by his family.

Mike was born on a frosty morning on April 11, 1944 to the late Jerry Moore and Minnie Moore Marton. He was of the Baptist faith.

Mr. Moore is survived by one daughter, Cheryl Hanks (Jimmy); one granddaughter, Ashley Cantrell (Austin); great nieces raised in the home Mary Norman and Megan Norman; special relatives, Frances Moore and Shirley Grant; his fiancée Doris Trentham; and many special nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Colleen Oliver and Kathleen Grant; and a childhood friend, Jimmy Taylor.

Mike loved spending time with his family and friends at the lake or sitting by the pool. He retired from General Electric Gas Turbines after 34 years. A dog was truly Mike’s best friend. He spoiled many fur babies in his lifetime including Dixie, Lady, Precious, Lucy, Sampson, and most recently, Le Happe.

Mike loved his flowers and working in his yard. His prized possession was a rose bush that his mother planted in 1944. He was so proud every spring when they were in full bloom. He would love to have the funeral home covered in flowers but he was also a big supporter of Greenville County Animal Care, St. Jude’s Hospital, and McCall Hospice House.    

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, October 4, 2022 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Heritage Funeral Home.

A Graveside Service will be held on Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at 11:00 am in Greenville Memorial Gardens.
