Michael Albert Moore

Date of Death

April 28, 2021

City of Death

Agar, South Dakota

If there was ever a renaissance man, Michael was it: San Marcos High School Class of 1968, Combat Marine Corps Rifleman in Vietnam, disabled Veteran, Sunburst Community member, heavy equipment operator, professional poker player (and 2013 World Series of Poker winner), gifted artist (whose work was featured in the Los Angeles Times), UCSB guest lecturer, Ventura home owner, South Dakota Country home owner and incredible story teller – and this was accomplished despite severe PTSD from his service in Vietnam.

He lived every day as if it were his last and experienced as much or more than most who live longer. Michael passed away on April 28 in South Dakota and is now – and forever will be – missed by family and friends, particularly his wife Lori to whom he was particularly dedicated.
