1922-2014

Tom Dent Moore passed away at the age of 91 on Monday, July 21, 2014. He was born Dec. 18, 1922, in Floresville, Texas, to Isaac Henry and Sallie Jefferson Moore, and moved to Uvalde as an infant. He was a direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson and Julia Dent Grant. After completing high school, Tom enrolled in Texas A&M University, but his studies were interrupted when he joined the U.S. Air Force. After receiving an honorable discharge, he returned to A&M, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management. Tom was employed by the Parks and Wildlife Department, where he worked as a wildlife biologist. In 1962, Tom moved to Rockport and was named wildlife supervisor of the South Texas region. In 1974, he was named administrative assistant to Fisheries Division director, and in 1976 was promoted to chief of Coastal Fisheries Branch. He retired as chief of staff. Tom’s diverse experience led to his selection as the state designee to the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council to assist in the promotion of plans to conserve and protect the gulf species of fish and shellfish outside state waters. Tom was a member of Crestview United Methodist Church. . . .
