Af­ter leav­ing the Army, Tom worked for Amer­i­can Air­lines, first in Fort Worth, Texas, and then in Tulsa, Ok­la­homa. Their sec­ond child, Su­san Moore Whit­tle, was born in 1954.

Tom re­tired from Amer­i­can Air­lines in 1980, and he and Bobby moved to Bella Vista, Arkansas. In 2005, Tom and Bobby moved to Keller, Texas, to be closer to their fam­ily.

Tom was pas­sion­ate about sports. In high school, he was a kicker on the foot­ball team and a mem­ber of the county cham­pion Car­rolton High School base­ball team. He played pro­fes­sional base­ball in Clo­vis, New Mex­ico, be­fore en­list­ing in the Army and con­tin­ued to play base­ball and softball for many years. His fa­vorite team to watch was the St. Louis Car­di­nals. He en­joyed bowl­ing and played in sev­eral leagues in Ok­la­homa.

Bobby talked Tom into try­ing golf in 1944, and it quickly be­came his num­ber one pas­time. In fact, the rea­son Tom and Bobby re­tired to Bella Vista was be­cause of all the golf cour­ses. Tom played golf al­most ev­ery day of the week in Bella Vista, served on the POA Board of Di­rec­tors, won the POA Club Cham­pi­onship in 1982 and was the run­ner-up in 1983. When­ever Tom va­ca­tioned, he took his golf clubs with him. He golfed all over the Con­ti­nen­tal United States. He also teed up on two Hawai­ian Is­lands, Puerto Rico, St. Croix, Ber­muda and Fiji. He en­joyed games in Canada, Aus­tralia, Scot­land, Eng­land, Spain, Switzer­land and even both of the King’s cour­ses in Morocco. Tom was very proud of the fact that he of­ten shot at or un­der his age. Over his 60 years of golf, Tom made five holes in one, his last at age 83.

In ad­di­tion to sports, Tom also en­joyed work­ing the New York Times Crossword, gar­den­ing, and dec­o­rat­ing the yard for var­i­ous hol­i­days, but, most of all, he en­joyed spend­ing time with his fam­ily.

Moore and wife, Dorothy; daugh­ter, Su­san Whit­tle and hus­band, Christo­pher; grand­daugh­ters, Bar­bara Dun­lap and hus­band, Brian; Vic­to­ria Pope and hus­band, Ja­son; Darci Shan­non and hus­band, Keith; great-grand­chil­dren, Laura, Thomas and Anna Dun­lap; Katherine and Matthew Pope; Su­san, Lil­lianna and Amelia Shan­non.
