We know that Delmer will be greatly missed here on earth but we feel that our loss is Heaven’s gain.
In 1941 Delmer Moore entered the U.S Army, after training he was shipped to Panama to fight for his
country in World War II.
On October 21st, 1946Delmar Moore met and married Virda Pigman. A few years later Delmar got in
trouble over his sins, and he seen that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was the only one that could deliver him
out of sin, so he prayed from the heart and Jesus heard his prayers and saved his soul. Bro. Delmer Moore
joined the Reynolds Fork Old Reglar Baptist Church where he worked hard for the build up of God’s Kingdom.
He was an Ordained Deacon and he and his wife, Sister Virda, worked hard as Deacons for Reynolds Fork
Church. I have known Bro. Delmer since I was a small boy, he was a good man and a dedicated husband and
father. Many times I would take Bro. Delmer to church with me. He and I talked a lot, mostly about our church,
the Lord and how we prayed that all our children will repent and be born again and we can all go to heaven
where we will never part anymore. To you children, if you want to meet daddy or papa again, you must repent
and be born again. Bro. Delmer will be greatly missed in the community and the Reynolds Fork Church, but
most of all by the absence from his family. So sleep on Bro. Delmer just for a little while and when we awake in
that morning of all mornings we will go to Heaven together, shouting and praising the name of our Lord and
Savior Jesus. So to all, come go with me to the Glory Land.
