Gerald Matthew Moore, of Saint Peters, MO, passed away Monday, June 22, 2020 at the age of 74. Beloved husband of 51 years to Joy Moore; cherished son of the late Davis and Annie Bell Moore; son-in-law of Gladys Janoski and the late Lawrence Janoski; devoted father of Brian Moore; dear brother of Davine (Howard) Roberts and Charles (Rosenda) Moore; brother-in-law of Sandy (Ken) Walls, Dorothy Karen O'Leary, Ken (Cherylann) Janoski, Ray Janoski, Larry Janoski and Jeff (Ann) Janoski,

Gerry retired from McDonnell Douglas/ Boeing after a career that spanned over forty years. He was a longtime parishioner of Sts. Joachim and Ann Catholic Church where he was an active member of the Men’s Club and where he served as an Usher for many years. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council #9625, and a lifetime member of the Missouri Jaycees and Missouri JCI Senate. Additionally, Gerry served as a board member for several organizations, including Wonderland Camp, the St. Louis Numismatic Association, and the Missouri Numismatic Association. Gerry was also a huge Mizzou football fan and was a longtime member of the St. Louis Tiger Club. In his free time, he loved gardening and fishing, and is lovingly remembered as an all-around great guy. Gerry’s outgoing and gregarious nature ensured that he never met a stranger, and he was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorial contributions may be made in Gerry's honor to Wonderland Camp.

    Gerry will be missed by many. I am proud to say that he and I have been friends for many years through our connections in the Jaycee Senate. Jerry has tried to get us to celebrate together for the Arkansas and Missouri football, but that just has not worked out due to time restrictions. Once again, goodby old friend. Until we meet again…

    candle 5G Moore… I loved our talks. Your wisdom was far beyond what most people knew. I will always cherish those moments. The confidence you had in me when I was debating to run for the Missouri Jaycees State President will never be forgotten. Thank you G Moore for being there for me…always.
    Love always!

    Gerry Moore was as good-hearted a soul as this earth has known. What a heart of service this man had! He gave his life in such a totally selfless way to the benefit of his family, his church, and the community. The work he did through the Jaycees to build up other’s people’s lives was unparalleled. His picture should be put next to the definition of what a true Jaycee is all about. Gerry had such remarkable wisdom to share with others in such a non-judgmental way. He brought comfort and encouragement to so many people, and his good humor always cheered people’s hearts. Going to miss this guy until we blaze some new trails in that Heavenly Kingdom.

    Gerry was my Jaycee brother and mutual servant for Wonderland Camp to benefit those with physical and mental challenges. He was the only person that could get this Kansas Jayhawk to wear the Mizzou colors while attending MU vs. NU football games in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our fond memories will live on..

    Sharon and I send our condolences to Joy and Brian, They too are servants of people..

    When we lose someone we love we must learn not to live without them, but to live with the love they left behind. Gerry you will be missed and I will continue to cherish the Mickey Mouse pin you gave me the last time we were together. R I P, from your Mickey Lady. Due to the virus and the Canada/USA border being closed I am unable to say my last good bye in person, I will say a prayer tomorrow thinking of you.

    I am a past president of the St. Louis Jaycees and got to know Gerry through various Jaycee activities. He was always a great guy to be around, friendly & smiling and laughing . He made a mean spicy pickle that would knock your socks off. I don’t know all the Muleskinner rules, so that’s all I can say about that. God bless Gerry and his family.

    candle 7The world is a lesser place with the passing of G Moore. He gave so much to so many and taught other how to be leaders as well. He was a true mentor to me and helped me greatly in my life. Thanks for all you did for me and so many others G! An angel among us now. Love and prayers to Joy and Brian.

    candle 7Dianne and I are very sorry to hear of Gerry’s passing. We knew him for about 45 years in the Jaycees and the Missouri JCI Senate. He was always a true gentleman and a very kind person, always ready and willing to help anyone in need. I have always enjoyed any time I could spend with Gerry. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.

    God bless you, Gerry!!! I hope to see you again some day in the heavenly beyond, I know he deserves to be there.

    Joy, please accept our family’s deepest sympathy. We will remember Gerry forever.
