THOMAS JOSEPH MOORE October 12, 1947 - June 20, 2020 Tom Moore of Las Vegas, Nevada, passed away in his home on Saturday June 20, 2020 at the age of 72. Born to Patricia and Robert Moore, Tom grew up in Southern California and loved surfing. He entered the military after his first two years in college, and returned after service to complete his doctorate in law. Tom was a quietly brilliant man with a remarkable memory for facts and legends about American and world history. As a U.S. soldier, he served in the Vietnam war as a rescue and assault helicopter pilot, honored with many metals for bravery and the Cross of Gallantry with palm. He was always a patriot and was proud to be a Disabled American Veteran. His law practice of 45 years included representing the Clark County School District, Police Department, Fire Department and in private practice as an advocate for Employee rights. He liked to keep his 55 year old surfboard in his law office with his awards, diplomas and military honors. Tom Moore is survived by his wife and his love, Toby Stoffa Moore, and was so proud to be the father of Hana Moore, Michael Moore and Susanna Moore, and stepfather to Julie Moeller, Brian Eick and David Eick, and father in law to Jenny Eick, Stephanie Eick and Mandy Eick. He was also a proud grandfather of Jackson, David and Alexander Eick, Allison Eick, and Noah and Jacob Moeller, always ready to hear of their adventures and successes. He will be missed by many. His service will be with Army military honors and he will be with his service members at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City, Nevada, services to be Friday, June 26, 2020, dedicated with his favorite Irish Blessing. His family and the Veterans Memorial request no flowers but we can all raise a glass in salute to his memory and any contributions to the Disabled American Veterans would be a lovely gesture.

Daddy, this was the first birthday without you and I wanted you to know you were on my heart every moment this week. Did you ask God to make my birthday so special this year? I believe you did. I noticed each and every little thing that reminded me of you and I asked Jesus to tell you how much I love you. You taught me to be strong but I broke down today wishing I could hug you one more time. Thank you for all the beautiful birthdays you made so special for me, all the phone calls I looked forward to, and for the comfort of knowing I had an amazing Dad who loved me. Thank you for celebrating my birthday in Heaven. I love you, Daddy.

Tom was a business client (and friend) for over 20 years. I always enjoyed talking with Tom. Seeing his vast awards and hearing his wealth of experiences were always fun. Amazing man and loved his wife and family so much. He will greatly be missed. Wish the best to the family and hope he will continue to actively live in your hearts.

Daddy, I love you. You were so good to me, Michael, and Susanna. Thank you for everything the good lessons, the hard trials, and everything little thing I might have missed. I remember the fireworks youd take me out to see and how much you loved retelling the story. Ill always think of you now when I see fireworks light up the sky. I always wanted to tell you, and maybe I did but if I didnt, Daddy, you were always funny and I will see you again with Jesus one day soon. I love you and before I go I wanted you to know I wrote this for you on Fathers Day

Happy Fathers Day in Heaven

Daddy, youre in heaven now
Youre at peace with Jesus
But Im still here without you
And my heart, I know, will never be the same
But I remember all the lessons you taught me
How to love and to forgive
So until were reunited
That is how I choose to live

I love you always and forever
Your sweet girl
