Theodore Kenneth (Ted) Moore, 82, of Savannah, passed away peacefully on March 28, 2020.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Louise and Albert Moore, his brother A. William Moore Jr., and sister Laurel Moore; and is survived by his loving wife of nearly 60 years, Jacqueline Moore; daughters, Denise Donaher (Ian) and Jaimi Metz (Russell); son, Michael Moore (Kim); seven grandchildren; two great granddaughters; and sister Mary Leffler (Robert).
Ted was born in Michigan, he met the love of his life in college, and they began their life together in Long Island. He lived in eight different states through the course of his life. Each place offered an opportunity for Ted to involve his family in many interesting, fun-filled adventures and activities including: fishing the lakes of Michigan, canoeing the Little Miami River, sailing the waters of Narragansett Bay, and bodysurfing the waves of Emerald Isle. He retired to Skidaway Island where he enjoyed many happy hours of golf and bridge with both new and old friends. Always an active guy who liked to be on the move, Ted had a passion for running with a goal to run until 80. When his knees had a different plan for him, he became an avid bicyclist. Ted reveled in teaching his children and grandchildren the finer points of ping pong, bocce, and family card games. He was always ready with his great big laugh and an encouraging word. We are truly thankful for having so many wonderful years…
Services will be private.
So sad to hear that Ted has passed and we're sending condolences to my sister, Jackie, and Denise, Jaimi and Mike. We have fond memories of family events together over the years, including friendly rounds of golf during visits to Keene, NH. May Jackie and family find comfort together in Ted's memory. Love, Mary Jo and Dave

My husband Dale and I will always remember Ted fondly. Being neighbors, we would drive by frequently when Ted would be working in his yard always with a smile and a wave. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
