Dr. Raymond Moore Has Passed Away

I haven't read any of the Moore's books on homeschooling, although I would really like to. I have heard many, many wonderful things about them and their philosphy on teaching and training our children. You can learn more about the Moore's here.

On Friday, Dr. Raymond Moore passed away at the age of 91. Following are the details...

Notification of Death

Dr. Raymond S. Moore

Dr. Raymond S. Moore passed away Friday, July 13, 2007, at the age of 91 after having suffered a massive stroke on Father’s Day. He is survived by his wife Bernice Reid Moore; brother Charles and two sisters Loraine Webster and Helena Reid; son Dennis Moore; and daughter Kathie Moore Kordenbrock, her husband and three sons.

Over the past several decades Dr. Raymond & Dorothy Moore (deceased) were known and loved as homeschooling pioneers. Together they authored numerous books on homeschooling. Raymond was a missionary, a world traveler, lecturer, author, educator, and a consummate gentleman. His highest goal was to serve God as a Seventh-day Adventist Christian. His family and friends knew him as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, mentor, and friend.

Two memorial services are planned in celebration of his life:

It is at times like these that our hope of heaven is so sweet.
