Denver Junior Moree, 94, passed away on July 27, 2020, at Elm Heights Nursing Home in Shenandoah, IA., after a life of fulfilled memories with family, friends and colleagues.

Born on July 18, 1926 in Emerson, IA, to Denver Phillip Moree and Daisy Melinda “Kelley”, Denver outlived his late wife Shirley “Bisbee” after 65 years of marriage. He also outlived his two siblings, sister Doris “Moree” Fredrickson and brother Raymond Moree.

Growing up in western Iowa, graduated high school from Wales, IA. Joined the U.S. Navy in 1944 and was stationed in Guam, USA. Six months after completing armed force services and an honorary discharge in 1947, married Shirley and raised a family with a full career with AT&T in southwestern Iowa. His life resided in the towns of Emerson, Red Oak, Shenandoah, Council Bluffs, Atlantic, and ultimately back to Shenandoah, IA. Denver loved traveling the country with family, camping and water skiing. Enjoyed western movies, John Wayne movies in particular. Denver and Shirley were very active in the Elks Club in Atlantic.

He is remembered by his two sons: son Phillip with husband Raul of Cape Cod, MA; son Curtis with wife Sharon of Shenandoah, IA; three grandkids: Michael with fiancé Lauren of Alexandria, VA; Thomanda with husband Dave of Cape Cod, MA; and Tanor with wife Jen of Shenandoah, IA; four great grandkids: Lauryn, Ciara, Hayden and Charlotte.
