He retired from the American Mallable in 1983. He then started his hunting and fishing adventures! Whether he was fishing with Beverage or hunting with his sons and grandsons, he was the happiest outdoors. He would never turn down a chance to go to a turkey shoot or a trip to Kentucky to hunt squirrel with his brother. When hunting season was over, you could always find him with his grandchildren at Lincoln Park,  watching their softball games. He was not only was there for his grandkids but for the all of the neighborhood kids. Duke was "Grandpa" to all of them. Fixing their bikes, then later helping with their cars. He loved each and every one of them. Duke is preceded in death by his parents and his siblings Everett, Beverage, Orville, Marvin, Martin, Kathleen, Von and Vernie. His son Troy Moore, a Granddaughter Jenny Williams and Great-Granddaughters Abby and Kynleigh.
