Mark R. Moore, 57, of Coal Valley, died at home with his wife and kids by his side on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014.

Mark was born on Jan. 20, 1957, in Denver, Colo., the son of Jewel L. Mayfield-Moore. He married Cindy Huizenga on Oct. 16, 1981, at Homewood Evangelical Free Church in Moline.
Mark's first job was as a paperboy for The Dispatch from the age of 12. He later worked for Pella Windows, Trevor True Value, Happy Jacks Waterbeds, Donnelly Directory, and Premiere Page. He worked as a general sales manager and most recently as a purchasing manager for Erie Foods International in Erie. He was exceptionally passionate about his work and took great pride in supporting and providing for his family.
Mark was a member, elder, and very dedicated teacher at Faith Evangelical Free Church. More than anything, Mark loved spending time with his five grandkids and fishing -- when he had the time.
