Edward H. Moore, 68, of 2878 County Road 139, Ovid, entered peacefully into the gates of heaven Friday, January 10, 2020, at Strong Memorial Hospital, following a heroic, decades-long battle with heart disease.

Born February 21, 1951, Ed was the third of four children of Wilford V. and Hildegard Cawliczek Moore. His father’s military career landed Ed in numerous cities across the United States and Germany, including, Westminster, Maryland, where his tanned, muscular calves drew the attention of the love of his life, Teresa A. Ausherman, to whom he exchanged vows on January 30, 1982.

Ed’s inspiring faith was reflected in all areas of his life, including in his work as owner/operator of P.T.L. (Praise the Lord) Construction, his incredible flower gardens, and most importantly, in his love for his children, Derrick, Ismael and Katelyn, and grandchildren, Keagan and Lucy.  Even during his most difficult days, Ed used his life to glorify God, bearing witness and sharing the Word with fellow patients and medical staff until his final moments.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Teresa Ausherman Moore of Ovid; his sons, Derrick (Tammy) DeGroft of Pennsylvania, Ismael (Carrie) Carmenatty of Ovid; daughter, Katelyn Moore of Ovid; grandchildren, Keagan Elias Carmenatty and Lucy Ann Campbell; siblings: George (Barbara) Moore of Texas, Kathleen Moore of Maryland and Susan (Melvin) Mundell of Ovid; special friends Fred Little of Maryland and Howard Schler of Ovid, as well as many nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, January 14, 2020 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Covert FuneralHome, 7199 South Main Street, Ovid, NY 14521.
