Chaplain (Col) Joseph ‘Art’ Moore was born Jan. 11, 1954 in Corpus Christi, Texas.


Chaplain Moore worked full time as a military chaplain,

providing spiritual guidance to Idaho National Guard soldiers and airmen regardless of denomination. Art was an outstanding human being. He was the ‘go-to-guy’ when a soldier (or airman) needed help.


Art loved the military, loved working with the people and loved traveling as part of his military duties. Being a minister to service members was dear to his heart, and he was available to help anybody at any time.  He enjoyed life, and his family always came first. He loved his family, loved his career, loved Idaho, and anybody who knew Art also knew he also loved fishing.


Two projects close to the Chaplain’s heart were marriage-enrichment seminars and counseling he would provide to airmen and soldiers in the Idaho National Guard. He also was dedicated to his work educating people on suicide prevention.

Art is survived by his wife, Sandra ; daughter Rachel Croft and husband Taylor Crofts; daughter Christina; parents Joseph P.


and Annie E.; mother-in-law Naomi White; brother-in-law Ronnie White; sister Jeanne and husband Larry Dannar; two nephews; three nieces; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
