Tony Alan Moore, Jr. passed away on November 20, 2019 in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the young age of 40. He was born on October 9, 1979 in Montgomery, Alabama to Tony Alan Moore, Sr. and Charlotte Helen Knickerbocker. Tony spent his early years growing up in different areas of the country… Lake Havasu City, Arizona; Aztec, New Mexico; as well as Frewsburg, New York. He graduated high school from Aztec High in New Mexico and eventually made his way to Colorado Springs where he attended Pikes Peak Community College. He gained further education through Tactical Elite in Emergency Management and Homeland Security.
When he wasn’t working as an Emergency Management search and rescue volunteer, or as a volunteer coach for School District 11, Tony was a fulltime father to three wonderful children, whose needs always came before anything else. He was a Christian man who was passionate about his love for the Lord. He was proud to have met Michael W. Smith, one of his favorite Christian singers. He also got to meet Sam Hunt (country/hip hop entertainer) and provide security at one of his concerts.
Tony was a mentor to so many. He always was willing to help and loved with no judgement and no expectations in return; he was a mentor/hero to so many. He always said his biggest accomplishment and success was raising his children. He always tried lifting people up with his smile, laughter, and being the life of the party. His biggest wish through his journey over a year is awareness of skin moles changing and to catch it early. Melanoma is the silent killer and it is not educated about enough.
He is preceded in death by his Grandparents Leslie and Helen MacEntire and William and Emmaline Knickerbocker; Gus Kavadas; Aunt Janis Burton; and K-9 best friend Callie Moore. Tony is survived by his Children Hannah (Andy) Landeros of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Logan Moore of Grand Junction, Colorado, and Crystal Moore of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Parents, Charlotte and Randy Knickerbocker of Colorado Springs, Colorado and Tony and Carol Moore Sr. of Kingman, Arizona; Grandparents, Howard and Barbara Moore of Milton, Florida, Mary Kavadas of Kingman, Arizona; Life Partner Heidi Streeter of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Sister, Kristi Karlson of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Aunts, Lorie (Craig) Joslen of Milton, Florida, Leslie(Guy) Lyons of Pensacola, Florida, Kim (Ricky) Short Williams of Arizona, Jeanie Choquette of Raleigh, NC; Niece, Trinity Jones; Nephew, Donovan Jones; Cousins, Randi Wood, Jami (Eric) Johnsen, Malori Daughety, Aron Daughety, and Sarah Headden.
