Robert Wesley Moore was born March 21, 1960 in Marshall, TX to Mr. Kirby Wyatt Moore and Mrs. Ada Jane Hampton. He passed from this life February 22, 2021in Longview TX surrounded by his family.
Wes grew up in Minden, LA where he attended and graduated Glenbrook School. While there, he played and excelled in every sport that they offered. If you were to ask him, he would tell you that he was better at those sports than his older brother. He was an avid New Orleans Saints Fan from an early age there was never any doubt how much he loved his team and how much he loved making fun of the Dallas Cowboys! His drive and work ethic started at an early age when he went to work as a carhop for the family BBQ business. At age 17 he began his career in the oil field and would go on to retire from Nabors Drilling. Following in his father’s footsteps, Wes owned and operated several laundromats in the East Texas area. Wes had a compassionate and generous soul. He was always ready to give financially or physically to anyone in need. His laundromat customers were never surprised when “Mr. Wes” offered to wash or dry their clothes for free. While supporting his family with his businesses and his career in the oilfield, Wes defeated multiple myeloma cancer after an 18-year battle. Wes left a positive and encouraging impression on everyone that he met. He left this world telling his family to take care of each other.
