Obituary for Eldon L. Moore

Eldon L. Moore, 90, of Richland Center and formerly of the Loyd area passed away January 7th, 2020.

He was born the 9th child of Frank and Ella Moore at their farm home in Wheat Hollow. His father passed away when Eldon was 4 years old and he began operating the farm for his mother at age 14. He got up early to do chores and be ready to ride the bus to high school. He graduated valedictorian at age 16 from Ithaca High School. He continued farming and married Lucille Griffin in 1952. They farmed and raised their four children. Following back surgery in 1966, it was necessary for him to switch from dairy farming to a beef herd. He then began janitor work at Ithaca Schools. He later became groundskeeper and transportation supervisor. He continued to work there after an additional back surgery and a hip replacement. He retired in 1983 and in 1999 they moved to Richland Center.


He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Lucille, and his children, Pam (Dan) Jones, Jerry (Glee) Moore, Denny (Sara) Moore and Cathy (John) Mickelson and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, 5 sisters and 3 brothers, all of his in-laws and two infant great-grandchildren.
