Melvin Moore of Ravenna, Texas entered the Pearly Gates of Heaven on August 15, 2019 at the age of 78. He was the greatest man on Earth and is now celebrating with his parents, brother and sisters. He was born on December 13, 1940 to Lloyd and Mary Lee (Bean) Moore in Avery, Texas. Melvin married the love of his life, Carol Johnson, on April 1, 1966 in Fort Worth, Texas and they began a marvelous life together. Not only was he an immaculate husband, but he was the greatest father and ‘Papaw” there ever was to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Melvin proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and was also a proud Mason of 53 years. Melvin spent his working life as an automobile mechanic.
