Jack S. Moore, of Urbandale, son of Ross E. and Gwendolyn Moore, died Sunday, May 14, 2017.

Jack had lived in Urbandale since 1968, when he accepted a promotion with the Iowa State Patrol, which he retired from in 1983 as Lieutenant. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 67 years, Margie. They had three children, Gary and Ronald Moore of Urbandale and Peggy Ferraro Stidham of Madison, Georgia, as well as five grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
