Mark R. Moore, 57, of Coal Valley, died at home with his wife and kids by his side on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30, at First Evangelical Free Church, 3321 7th St., Moline. A reception will immediately follow from 2 to 4 p.m. at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Moody Radio WDLM.
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.
Survivors include his loving wife, Cindy; daughter, Lindsey (Michael) Freburg, Rock Island; son, Jared (Sarah) Moore, Rock Island; grandkids, Michael and Anna Freburg, Esther, Abigail and Lydia Moore; sister, Peggy (Jim) Cavin, Florida; brother, Tim (Michelle) Nolan, Florida, and David (Michelle) Nolan, Michigan; several nieces and nephews; in-laws, Paul and Ruth Huizenga, Erie; brothers-in-law, Craig (Denise) Huizenga, Erie, Curt Huizenga, Erie.
He was preceded in death by his mother.
