Obituary – Robert Noel Moore (1978 – 2019)


On Friday May 3, Robert Noel Moore, 40 of Hartford, affectionately known to Hartford and the surrounding areas as Big Rob, left this world to reunite with his mother and father. Robert was born September 1, 1978 in Peoria, Illinois to Paul Moore Jr. and Marie Punke.

Robert moved to Hartford when he was young. He was a life long resident and proud graduate of Hartford High School, class of 1996. Robert made friends easily and was popular with many that he came in contact with. Later in life as Robs health failed him, he became a Facebook warrior, making friends from all over the country. Many people waited every morning to see his posts of encouragement and humor. Robert loved and enjoyed talking and spending time with his closet friends and family, but his highlight of his days was spent with his beloved niece Sara.

Robert is preceded in death by his father Paula Moore Jr. and his mother Marie Hornbuckle. He is survived by his loving family Paula and David Zachary of the home, his beloved niece Sara and his nephews Mark and Kelsey Zachary of Catoosa, Oklahoma, Alexander Russell of Lancaster, California, Kaleb and Brandon Schwartz of Hartford, his special friend and wifey Trista Brown Schwartz of Hartford. Service time and day are pending with the Rev. Eddie Kazy officiating the service, at the Midland Assembly of God. Day and time will be posted on Facebook. Donations or flowers can be directed to Midland AOG.

    This is a beautiful obituary that sums it all up. Never met him face to face but knew him through his wifey. Loved the off the wall humor. Funny plays on words and silliness. Love the way he loved Sara. So sorry he suffered with depression and pain and hope is flying with the angels. He would love being “light on his feet!”

    I met Rob on a Facebook group. His spirit and humor was a light in my life. No matter his situation he always made sure that I was ok daily. Rob talked me through one of the hardest times of my life and became one of my best friends. I may have never met him face to face but I am grateful for the place he holds in my heart. Love you best friend and thank you for everything. 💛
