Douglas Moore Obituary

A true legend passed away on March 5, 2024. Douglas Ray Moore was born in Atoka, Oklahoma on January 13, 1931.

Doug — also best known as “Uncle Doug” to hundreds — was well known as a true houndsman, horseman, and friend. He loved to hunt varmints and would always show up at least 30 minutes or more before he was supposed to be there. He hunted with friends young and old, making sure he had a hunter’s cocktail in the bed of his truck at all times. Thank you to the three guys that he really enjoyed hunting with — William Sutherland, Dave Anderson, and Kyle McWhorter.

Doug sure enjoyed calf roping (earlier years when he was a rodeo champion), branding calves at friend's ranches but especially team roping where he always welcomed anyone who wanted to learn to rope. Doug was so proud to have taught, hauled, and supported his nephews Cameron (Camo) and Wes. To see them qualify and go to the National Finals Rodeo was a true highlight of his life.

Doug spent the last three years of his life in McKinleyville with his granddaughter Shasta and her husband Victor. He got to enjoy watching his great-grandson Ty Pimentel get married to Bridgette. Also, he enjoyed it when his great-granddaughter Kaylee Pimentel would drive him around, always saying what a great driver she was.

Doug is survived by his wife Deb, his daughter Carolyn Copher, his granddaughter Shasta Pimentel (Victor), his great-grandkids Ty Pimentel (Bridgette), Kaylee Pimentel, his siblings Don Moore, Dorothy Ness, Faye Condren, Jim Moore, David Moore, and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Sarah and Edgar Moore, his son Jimmy Doug, and siblings Grace Holt, Edgar Moore, Ida Jo Kellogg, and Ben Moore.
