Robert Lee Moore was born on August 8, 1965, in Dexter, Missouri, to the late Amos Cornelius Moore Sr. and the late Effie Lee Green Moore. Robert served the city of Kennett, Missouri, for over 30 years. He began his career as a part-time firefighter with the Kennett Fire Department in September 1992 and was promoted to the rank of lieutenant in November 1994. He accepted a full-time position as a police officer with the Kennett Police Department in May of 2000, while he continued to serve as a part-time firefighter. In May of 2005, Robert accepted a full-time position with the fire department and continued to serve as a part-time police officer. In August 2019, Robert was promoted to the rank of captain with the KFD. He also worked security for different housing complexes. He was a well-respected member of Kennett’s public safety team and committed to seeing the success of the community.

In the words of Robert Lee Moore, “It’s important for me to do my best to make my community safe…I hope that if I or any of my family members are in need of help, that we will receive the same help and service I offer.”

Robert received numerous awards and was recognized at the state level by officials after his heroic efforts saved several lives in the Kennett, Missouri community. He was awarded the Woodmen Life Lifesaver Award in 2017.

Robert was very hardworking, committed, and dedicated in all that he did. He lived his life for his family. Robert loved his three girls, Tiffany, Chelcie, and Hillary, and had a special place in his heart for his three grandchildren, Tyquavious, Hazel, and Ginger. He showed them unconditional and unchanging love. Robert made it his business that they didn’t go without anything and was only a call away for everything. That was the type of father and grandfather he was.

During his free time, he enjoyed barbecuing and entering barbecue contests with some of his greatest friends, visiting family and friends out of town, fishing trips, going out to the deer woods, Friday pizza nights with his grandchildren, watching his favorite team play (Chicago Cubs), completing yard work, and taking vacation trips. He was looking forward to the finished build of Station 2 of the new Kennett Fire Department and retirement.

Robert is missed every second and every minute of every day. His laugh, his jokes, that good ol’ barbecue, his love, his advice, and his presence were unmatched. He was 57 years old when he departed this life at his home from an apparent heart attack, hours after responding to an emergency fire call.
