Herman Moore

Brownwood - Herman L. Moore, age 94, of Brownwood passed away Saturday, December 4, 2021, at a local care facility after a brief illness.

Herman L. Moore was born to Cecil White Moore and Mattie Belle (Minica) Moore on May 14, 1927. He was married to Judy (Stevens) Moore for sixty-two years.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Judy Moore; and parents, Cecil Moore Sr. and Mattie Belle Moore Elkins; siblings, Mike Ratliff, J.C. Elkins, Pat Ratliff, Joyce Fowler, Robert Moore, and Cecil Moore Jr; and an infant son, Charles Stevens Moore.

Left to cherish his memories are three daughters, Judy Lynn Moore, Sherry Glynn Moore, and Terry Moore Martinez; two siblings, Helen Dennison of Brownwood and Lawrence Elkins of Clifton; his seven precious grandchildren, Sonya Touchstone King of Early, Brandy Rodgers of Early, Ty Smith of Ft. Worth, Ryan Scalf of Fredericksburg, Jared Smith of Washington State, Demi Moore Chatri of Ardmore, Oklahoma, and Ariel Lynn Houston of Richardson; and fourteen great-grandchildren. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Prior to his ranching career, Herman coached at the high school and college levels from 1954-68. He was a four-year letterman and starter in basketball at Howard Payne University. He is a member of HPU's 300-point club and was inducted into the HPU Sports Hall of Fame in 1997.

Though not among Texas' largest operators, Herman produced relatively large commercial herds of Angora goats, flocks of fine-wool ewes and crossbred lambs at sites in Brown, Comanche, and Mills counties. He had a high success rate, producing a net profit on the mohair, wool, and meat. Herman was a member of the Mohair Counsel of America and served three terms as president. He set out to build bridges between U.S. producers and foreign processors. He went on the first of more than a dozen overseas market development trips. It was a trek to the world's major processors from Great Britain across Western Europe. Then came the first of several trips to thirty-one countries including Japan, South Korea, South Africa, and Russia.

"Moore gets the lion's share of credit for boosting the reputation and value of Texas Mohair on world markets and laying ground-work for new overseas markets, including a successful initial sale to what was the Soviet Union. They called it Texas Mohair worldwide, and still do." (Fort Worth Star-Telegram Farm and Ranch Awards, 1992)

Graveside Services for Herman were held at 11:00 a.m. Monday, December 6, 2021, at Eastlawn Memorial Park. Arrangements are under the direction of Blaylock Funeral Home of Brownwood.

In lieu of flowers the family request that memorial contributions be made to Howard Payne University in Herman's memory. Online condolences for the family are welcome at www.blaylockfuneralhome.com.
