Douglas Lee Moore, age 71 of Rose Hill and formerly of Howard, KS, passed away July 21, 2022 at Rock Regional Hospital in Derby, KS

Douglas Lee Moore was born in Wichita, Kansas to Paul and Izola Moore on August 31, 1950. He attended Howard public schools and graduated from High School in 1968. After graduating he got his first job in the Howard pool hall. After several years of working there, an opportunity to buy it from the retiring owner presented itself and Doug’s Place was born! For the next 30+ years Doug and his dad entertained and fed many locals from high schoolers to senior citizens. Doug’s place was a highlight of Main Street with pool, arcade games, dominoes, a jukebox, pickled eggs and red beer. Doug was a fantastic business man and ran his place well. When he wasn’t at work he thoroughly enjoyed going out to the family farm. It was his favorite place to get some fresh air and he had a mission to cut down all those pesky cedar trees!

As the family of three aged and needed more support, they lived together for many years at Twilight Manor in Howard. Doug and Izola moved to Fountainview Nursing home in 2015 which was located in Rose Hill closer to his sister Paula.

Doug passed the time there doing beautiful puzzles, singing with visiting churches, and watching tons of sports. He loved the Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks, Wildcats and Shockers. His daily attire often boasted of his loyal support for these teams!

Doug was a life-long member of the Howard Methodist church and a connoisseur of Toot’s cheeseburgers and milkshakes.

He is preceded in death by his parents Paul and Izola Moore.

He is survived by his sister Paula and Richard Pearson, and brother Pat Moore.
