Burl was born on June 1, 1935, Patoka, IL, to Clarence Andrew (Ted) and Josie Elizabeth (Roseman) Moore. Burl, upon graduating from Patoka High School in 1954, enlisted with the 138th Consolidated Aircraft Maintenance in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1975 he enlisted with 185th Air National Guard and retired in 1990 with a total of 26 years of Service. Burl worked for MidAmerica (IPS) for 35+ years.

In 1957, while stationed in Sioux City, he met and married his best friend and love of his life, JoAnne Francis Daniels, at Sacred Heart Parish. To this union were born 6 children.

Burl and JoAnne raised their children in Sioux City and were active members of Sacred Heart for over 39 years, before retiring to Mt. Home, AR. Burl was the girls’ basketball coach at Sacred Heart for many years bringing home several championships wins, and one where he threw his cigarettes across the court after the win, after he told the girls he would quit if they won. Burl and JoAnne enjoyed traveling to visit their children and grandchildren. Upon retirement they spent their time at Cloud 9 (Caufield, MO), trout fishing and enjoying nature. Burl and JoAnne moved to Mt. Home, AR, in 2005 to be closer to all the good fishing holes where they also learned to carve wood.

Burl leaves behind 6 children, James (Jen) Moore (Omaha, NE), Mary (John) Baldacci (Olathe, KS), Kathy Kenney (Washington, MO), Janet (Al) Berding (Olathe, KS), William Moore (Sioux City), and Patricia (Jim) Cassette (Wesley, Chapel, FL); 11 grandchildren, Elizabeth, Joseph, Aaron, Ben, Andrew, Ian, Isabella, Danielle, Hannah, Jonathan, and Morgan; 9 great-grandchildren; 2 sisters, Vivian (Peg) Williams of Indiana, and Velma (Don) Hassell of House Springs, MO; 2 bothers-in-law, Rich (Elaine) Daniels and Don Caracker; and many nieces and nephews.

Burl was preceded in death by his wife, JoAnne (on November 15, 2012); 4 brothers, Darwin (Bud), Dayne, Donald, and Murval; 6 sisters, Iris Boum, Beulah Matz, Gertrude Moore, Helen Wooden, Jean Caracker, and Irene Allegrett; grandson, Paul Berding; and great-grandson, Connor Peterson

The family would like to thank Villa St. Francis of Olathe, KS for their dedicated help for Burl, especially Brad, Lucy, Sr. Rahn, Sr. Soja, Cecilia, Lynn, Casey, and many, many others.
