February 10, 1952 – July 4, 2012

Bobby Joe Moore, 60, of Coolidge, Arizona rode into eternity on July 4, 2012.

Bobby was born on February 10, 1952 in Florence, Arizona. In 1968, he became a father to his only daughter, Jeanette Rene and began working for England Ranch in Coolidge. He moved on to work for the railroad and shortly after that began his well drilling business.

Being a cowboy by heart, he had a dream to someday own his own ranch. In 1981 he became a guard at the Florence State Prison. In 1988 he broke his neck while riding a bronco in the Florence Rodeo, which forced him to retire from working at the prison, but didn't slow him down. He worked even harder and made his dream a reality with the "Lost River Ranch," where he molded many boys into cowboys. The memories of weekend round-ups, cattle branding, and sitting around a fire playing the guitar will never be forgotten and through his grandchildren and all the cowboys from "Lost River Ranch," his legacy will live on.

Bobby was a proud and thankful cowboy who touched the lives of many.

Survivors include his mother, Mary Moore of Coolidge; his daughter and son-in-law, Jeanette and Steve Aivazian of Yuma; his wife, Glenda Moore of Coolidge; two brothers, Jimbo and Rudy Moore of Coolidge; two sisters, Jeanie Houk of Coolidge and Linda Helton of Utah; six grandchildren, Ryan, Ashley, Joshua, Tyler, Faith and Rylee Aivazian of Yuma; two great-grandchildren, Little Josh and Kaydence Aivazian of Yuma; stepdaughter, Jewell Kelley of California; granddaughter, Sarah Theofanopoulos of California; and nephews, Mike, Emmett and Justin Brinkerhoff, Brian Houk and Jamie Moore of Coolidge. He was preceded in death by his father, James Travis Moore and brother-in-law and lifetime friend, Gary Houk.
