Malcolm Moore Obituary

Malcolm Moore, 76, of Montezuma serenely passed away at his residence on Wednesday, May 3, 2023.

He was born in Clinton on June 6, 1946, to Franklin Theodore Moore and Dorothy Virginia Pinnick Moore.

He graduated from Garfield High School in 1964 where he had started a photography club. He attended Wabash College and later graduated from Indiana State University in photo-journalism.

In the Texas Forestry Service his skills were used for aerial mapping and creating self-taught educational materials. At the Terre Haute Tribune Star he rose from photojournalist to production manager.  His “photographer’s eye” and his advanced darkroom and computer skills allowed him to take excellent photos and enhance them with a unique artistic flair. He established and operated Moore Photography from 1985-1995 in Terre Haute, IN. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Montezuma, IN. He enjoyed his membership in the Covered Bridge Art Association where he exhibited regularly and his photography won multiple awards. Malcolm and his wife operated the Machledt Furniture Store in Montezuma for many years. As a life long learner, Malcolm had a wide knowledge of many subjects. He was gifted in his ability to explain and educate others in an intelligent, witty, and jovial manner.

Malcolm was preceded in death by his parents and a brother Marty.
