Palm Bay, FL/Amory—Billy Doil Moore, 69, began his new life in Heaven on Saturday, July 31, 2021. Born in Itawamba County, MS, on January 18, 1952, Billy was a son of the Late Lon Moore and Ruby Allred Moore Davis.
Billy grew up in Itawamba County and attended school in Fulton. Billy served in the Mississippi Army National Guard for many years in defense of this great county. He married his sweetheart, Judy Berry, on July 16, 1971, and together they were blessed with a son and fifty wonderful years of marriage. Billy was a hard working provider, working as a certified master mechanic at Blue Bell Manufacturing and later Red Capp Industries. Before retirement, he worked in maintenance at Gilmore Memorial Hospital. Even outside of work, he was always tinkering in his shop and never met a mechanical challenge he could not solve.
He was a Christian who believed in God and the power of prayer. His family was his pride and joy; enjoyed camping and traveling with his wife and going to live wrestling events with his son. Billy loved the company of others; he never met a stranger and had a sense of humor that never failed to make people laugh. At the same time, he was never afraid to let you know exactly how he felt. He was a lifelong animal lover; his fur baby Sadie and grand dogs Fey and Nyx brought him years of joy and more than a few shredded carpets.
His closest friends included Cliff Tubb, Alan Coleman, Dewayne & Junior Pickle, and Delbert Elledge. Billy was a Master Mason and member of the Richmond Lodge in Itawamba County. Billy was a Mississippi boy to the bone; He enjoyed Old Country Music, Mississippi catfish, Ole Miss Football and his pride and joy, his 1971 Ford show truck.
Billy was a devoted husband and father that loved his family, his county and life in general. All the wonderful years of memories will be cherished by his family and the legacy of his love will live on in the hearts of others. He will be missed greatly.
