Just hearing this sad, sad news of Moore’s passing...a true artist in every sense of the word. I have such lovely memories of Moore immediately taking a seat at my Baldwin grand piano every time he walked into my home and bringing joy into the room and my heart. The world was enriched by his presence and light and he will be missed. May his memory be forever a blessing.

So sad to hear of the passing of my creative Cousin Eddie “Moore” Anderson. I have many so fond memories of him as we were growing up - his art work & music, & living with him when we were 9 & 10 at house in Burlington. Although we had not seen each other for years, we always stayed in touch. So proud of the life he lived. He is now in heaven with Aunt Edith & Uncle Andy.
Love you, Cousin

I became acquainted with Moore when we worked together in the Training Department at Pizza Hut’s headquarters here in Wichita. He was indeed very creative & played a major role in writing and producing various training programs including a fun video about the history of the company. I extend my sincere sympathy to your family as your mourn the loss of your husband, father, grandfather, brother & friend. My prayers & thoughts are with each of you.

Dear Rheta,
Thank you for remembering my husband, Moore Anderson. He enjoyed his Pizza Hut headquarters colleagues (and he liked to make pizza ever after). The family and I truly appreciate you kind words. We want to have a memorial service in May 2021, hoping the pandemic will have subsided to allow a safe gathering.
