Stephan A. Moore
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 30, 1949
Death: Oct. 2, 1970

During his time at Derby High School, Stephen Moore was a notable student and athlete, participating in track, wrestling and football. He wrestled at state and was offered several college football scholarships. He was a member of the Student Government Association, Derby Letterman's Club (D-Club) and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

After accepting a scholarship to Wichita State University, he became a big part of the team as one of three linebackers. "He was a hard-hitter, no doubt about it," said his brother, Milton "Bud" Moore, also a member of the team. On October 2, 1970, while on the way to a game in Logan, Utah, Mr. Moore lost his life along with fellow teammates, athletic staff and supporters of the team when their plane crashed near Silver Plume, Colo.

"He loved the mountains," according to his brother. "When I finished my service in the Navy, we drove out to Silver Plume one summer and got jobs working on the Eisenhower tunnel for $4.40 an hour." Ironically, first responders to the crash were workers from that same tunnel.

Mr. Moore was studying language arts at WSU with the hope of being a high school or college English teacher and possibly a coach. "He was a natural learner who took care of business...he could've done anything he wanted to do."
