Keith was born on March 19, 1939, in Beaufort, North Carolina to the late Aaron and Annie Moore. He faithfully served in the United States Coast Guard from 1957 to 1961, spending two years in the reserves. With over 34 years serving Carteret County as a sheriff’s deputy, he has lived a full life.  He was a member of the Masonic Lodge #741 Crissie Wright, the Scottish Rite, and a member of the Sudan Shriners.

Since retiring from the Sheriff’s office, he has enjoyed cooking on the grill, stewing hard crabs, conchs, and fresh meat with rutabagas and dumplins. In his spare time, he enjoyed trout fishing, spending his days on the banks, and quality time with his beloved family and sweet grandchildren. He was an avid bird watcher and loved feeding them. Keith loved listening to the Gaither Vocal Band. He was a fan of the Carolina Tarheels, the L.A. Dodgers, and the Washington Redskins.

He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Sheila Moore, of the home; daughter, Shelley Garner (Doug) of Harkers Island; son, Keith Moore Jr. (Lisa) of Beaufort; grandchildren, Faith Moore, Taylor Garner, Alyssa Garner; fur babies, Miss Phoebe, Sunny, Millie, and Marlie; along with many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Bobby Moore; sisters, Ramona Craver, Lida Strickland, and Polly Davis; and brothers, James Moore, Cecil Moore, Frank Moore, and Walter C. Moore.
