Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Michael Wayne Moore, age 46, of Allegan, passed away Friday, March 4, 2022. He was born October 19, 1975, in Grand Rapids, to Wayne & Kay Moore (Shafer).  Mike grew up in Moline and graduated from Wayland Union High School with the class of 1994.

From a very young age Mike knew what it was to be a hard worker. He tried his hand in everything from farming, being a surgical tech, and one of his proudest accomplishments was being a third generation firefighter for Leighton Township. His wood working skills were second to none. Mike had owned his own concrete and lawn care businesses and eventually he found being a Heavy Machine Operator was his passion. If Mike wasn’t raising cows or rabbits he could be found running his beagles or coon dogs. These last few years Michael had really gotten back into Trap shooting and just returned from Arizona where he was able to shoot the Southern Grand.

Michael was preceded in death by his mother, Kay; grandparents, Jay and Louise Moore and Don and Wanda Shafer.

Survivors include his son, Wyatt Moore; father, Wayne Moore; brother, Steven (Karie) Moore; niece, Makayla Moore; aunts & uncles, Renee (Tony) Baareman, Karen (Jerry) Hendrick, Don Shafer, Ron (Judy) Shafer, and Doug (Chris) Shafer; and many cousins and friends.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, April 2, 2022, from Noon until 3:00 p.m. with a short memorial service at 2:00 p.m. at the Dorr Moose Lodge, 4204 20th Street, Dorr, MI, with a light lunch being served.

You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers…..
