Press Release from Kathie Moore Kordenbrock

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 (deceased) Moore 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.

    The Moore Foundation was a great source of help, guidance and information for me in my early homeschooling years and I feel a great gratitude for all the work and effort they have done in our behalf. Thank you and May God bless the Moore family.

  2. Tessa Minter

    I heard Dr. Moore and his wife speak at a workshop at least 12 years ago. I had never thought of homeschooling my children, but what they said at the workshop convinced me this was what God wanted for our family. I started my first son in Kindergarten and this year he graduated from our Home School and is attending a Community College and transferring to VMI next year. Thank you for your years of knowledge and service. God Bless your family.
