Kenny Wayne Moore, Jr., 26, of Clyde Park, Montana, passed away as the result of an auto accident on Monday, December 31st, 2018. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held 3:00 P.M. on Sunday, January 6th, 2019 at the Livingston Church of Christ, 919 West Park Street. A reception will follow the service.
Kenny was born October 15, 1992, in Anchorage, Alaska, but his dad and step-mom moved the family to Clyde Park in 2000. Kenny attended most of his school years at Shields Valley. After earning his GED, 16-year-old Kenny attended the Motorcycle Mechanics School in Phoenix, Arizona.
Eventually, Kenny moved back to Clyde Park and worked for a local horse stable. He then had a short stint in North Dakota until he moved back to the local area again. Upon his return to Shields Valley, Kenny found employment in construction, custom granite rock work, and as a mechanic.
Kenny had a megawatt smile and a passion for anything with a motor. His love and aptitude was evident while working on his latest project of a “hybrid” snowmachine. Motorcycles, trucks, cars—it didn’t really matter. From the time he was just a tiny tot he would grab a screwdriver or a wrench, take pieces apart, and put them back together again.
Other than motors, Kenny was committed to the loyal dogs in his life, like Isky, who was an extension of his family. Kenny loved spending time in the outdoors and camping, especially in the wilderness of the Crazies. He also found joy in fishing and hunting, especially for elk.
He is survived by his father, Kenneth Wayne Moore, Sr. and step-mom, Christina Moore of Idaho; sister, Kena Moore of Livingston; brother, Michael A. Cluff; and sister, Sarah Hollier of Anchorage, Alaska. Kenny is also survived by his grandparents, Jerry and Shirley Moore, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Kenny was preceded in death by his brother, Ryan P. Moore.
Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory has been entrusted with arrangements.
