March 19, 1945 — May 8, 2024


David L. Moore, 79, of West Lafayette, passed away Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at St. Anthony Health Care in Lafayette.  He was born March 19, 1945, in Lafayette to Leroy and Martha (Carr) Moore.  He married Mary Ruth Primmer.  She preceded him in death.


David was a 1964 graduate of East Tipp High School.
