Terry was born in Roanoke Rapids on December 24, 1965 to Brenda Rebecca Gibbs and the late Hugo Edward Moore Jr. Terry known for his big-hearted kindness and his knack for making friends, Terry was loved by anyone who met him. Whether he was working on a Bobcat, building a fox body Mustang, fine-tuning any type of technology, or simply sharing details of his next upcoming project, he drew people in. People respected Terry for many things such as his vast knowledge of all things mechanical and his ability to fix practically anything. He had an infectious laugh and back in the day could cut up on roller skates like nobody’s business. He loved a good baked potato at any meal and never turned down a Dairy Queen run.
Terry truly had a giving heart for all people. He never let an opportunity pass to provide help to someone in need. His compassion is shown many times in the form of buying someone a meal, inviting someone to share a table with him and he always thanked a veteran for their service. Those are examples of only a tiny portion of the good deeds Terry believed in.
He loved his family. He and Sherry shared a love that nothing can compare to; it was a love that was obvious to all that knew them. He loved his children and was so proud of all of them. His boys were his greatest accomplishments and he never failed to tell others how smart, how creative, how determined, and how loving they were. He was so proud of the husbands they were to their wives and the fathers they were to their children. His grandchildren were the reward for raising such fine young men. He enjoyed seeing them grow and accomplish new things at every age and was a proud Papa of all of them.
He is survived by his wife “Hotrod” Sherry Moore; his mother, Brenda Gibbs of Black Creek; three sons, Jamie Dustin Moore of Charlotte, Terry Wayne Moore Jr. and wife, Holly Jane Moore of Pennsylvania and Alton Casey O’Brien Moore and wife, Mychayla Pumehana Moore of Wilson; three brothers, John William Harrelson Jr of Black Creek, Wade Vernon Harrelson of Black Creek and Shawn Moore and wife, Heather Moore of Hendersonville, NC; one sister, Donna Marie Huggins and husband, Tim Huggins of Bailey; six granddaughters and two grandsons, Jaida Leigh Moore, Niia Grace Moore, Mena Raine Moore, Kyleigh Marie Moore, Aubrie Nycol Moore, Otto Hamilton Wayne Moore, Lincoln Grey Moore and his angel granddaughter Zoey Jane Moore, who we hope is sitting on her Papa’s knee right now; his mother-in-law, Betty McGuire of Stantonsburg, and two nephews that he loved like his own, Ricky Moore Jr of Bailey and Shawn D Moore of Black Creek.
Terry was preceded in death by his father, Hugo Edward Moore Jr.; his son, Jordan Leigh Moore; his paternal grandmother, Vivian Odell Burnette Moore, whom Terry was the apple of her eye; and his father-in-law, Mack “Pop” McGuire.
Living without him will be hard; Living with his memory will make it easier; Living knowing the love he had for us will make it all worth it in the end.
The family is in the care of Howell Funeral Home & Crematory in Goldsboro.
