Obituary

Cephas Moore, Jr., 91, of Benton, Arkansas went to be with the Lord April 1, 2021.  He was born January 20, 1930 in Traskwood, Arkansas to the late Cephas Moore, Sr. and Rite Lee (Pinnell) Moore.

Cephas loved the Lord and was a member of Temple Baptist Church where he served as a deacon for thirty-seven years.  In earlier years, he owned C&E Drive In with his brother-in-law, Eli Harrison in Bauxite, Arkansas.  He also ran the projector.  Cephas worked at Alcoa for thirty-nine years.  He was knowledgeable in plumbing and electrical work.  During their marriage, he and his wife enjoyed travelling all over the country.  With their love of travel, Cephas’ wife thought a motorcycle would be fun, so that’s just what Cephas did-he went and bought a motorcycle so they could hit the road and see the country.  Spending time outdoors gardening, hunting and fishing was also special to Cephas.  Family all agree that Cephas was a strong man-strong in his faith, strong for his family, and strong for his friends.  He was a rock that they leaned on and will be missed.

Preceding Cephas in death are his parents; grandsons:  Brian Sims and Shane Moore; sisters:  Sylvia Jones, Janie Whatley, and Vicky Moore.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving wife of seventy-two years, Joyce Moore of Benton, Arkansas; twin sons:  Dennis Moore and wife Doris and Danny Moore and wife Debbie; daughters, Regina Sullivan and husband Randall and Marla Davies; nine grandchildren; twenty-one great-grandchildren; eight great-great grandchildren; and many family members and friends who love Cephas and will miss him always.
