HENRY MOORE, 88, of Little Rock, Ark., went to be with the Lord on January 29, 2023. He was born April 3, 1934, in Little Rock, to William Henry and Lucille Moore. He graduated from Little Rock High School in 1952, and the University of Arkansas in 1956.
He was a proud member of the Razorback football team known as the "25 Little Pigs." He was a two-time ALL-SWC player for the Razorbacks in 1954 and 1955. He went on to play in the NFL for the New York Giants and the Baltimore Colts. He won an NFL Championship with the New York Giants his rookie year, scoring a touchdown after a blocked punt. After football Henry pursued a career in sales including stocks and bonds, building supplies, and real estate.
Henry had the gift of encouragement. He was his children's greatest cheerleader. He never met a stranger and was generous to a fault. He was an eternal optimist always choosing to look at the bright side of every difficulty he endured. Henry was a master storyteller who could captivate an audience. Most of his stories would leave you laughing, smiling and shaking your head. He was the life of the party. Henry was preceded in death by his loving, brilliant, beautiful wife of 40 years, Pattie Settle Moore. He is survived by his children Maggie Hicks (Lyn), Cathy Womack (Dave), Sally Stokes (Doug), and Greg Moore (Rhonda), and his grandchildren Austin Hicks, Shelby Hicks, Haley Womack, Erin Womack, Eli Stokes, Harper Stokes, Grant Moore and Mason Moore.
Although we are sad, we do not grieve as those who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again. Henry placed his trust in Jesus Christ so we know we will see him again. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Henry's name can be sent to Immerse Arkansas, P.O. Box 45385, Little Rock, Ark., 72214.
Visitation will be held from 5-7 p.m., Friday, February 3, 2023, in the chapel of Roller Chenal, 13801 Chenal Parkway. Please share your memories of Henry at www.rollerfuneralhomes.com/chenal.
