"We will sorely miss Carlos," said Dr. Terry Maness, dean of the Hankamer School of Business. "He was a mentor and friend to many of the faculty at the business school as well as a role model."

Moore was born Feb. 3, 1943, in Emmett to Harvey Aldine and Doris Marie Moore.

After graduating from Frost High School in 1961, he earned an associate's degree from Navarro Junior College and his bachelor's degree from the University of Texas. He then completed a master's degree from Baylor and his doctorate from Texas A&M University.

Moore was currently holding The Edwin Streetman Professor of Marketing endowed professorship and taught for 36 years at Baylor. He had been honored as a Distinguished Professor by the Hankamer School of Business. He co-authored a textbook that is in its 13th edition, and for three decades, he worked with a team of other professors at the Hankamer School of Business to research and publish major findings in the area of business ethics.

In addition to his academic achievements, Moore was co-owner of Moore Brothers Ranch which he established and operated with his brother, Kris Moore, a professor of information systems at Baylor.

Moore was a loving husband, father and grandfather and was known for his quiet generosity and gentle sense of humor.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Doris and Aldine Moore, and his grandson, Benjamin Alan Moore.

Survivors include his wife Karen Stites Moore of Emmett; his children: Jeff Moore of Fort Worth, Mark Moore and his wife, Mary, and their children, Hannah, Ethan and Sara Beth of Chandler, Ariz., Trey Moore and his wife, Amy, and their children, K.K., Jaycie and Aaron Todd of San Antonio, Robyn Moore of Carrollton, Andrew Young of Emmett and Catherine Young of Emmett; brother and sister-in-law, Kris Moore and Rita of Emmett; nieces and nephews, Charla and Troy Moore of Fort Worth, Kristi and Craig Earp of Crockett, Clark and Holly Moore of Emmett, Kera and Kevin Zuelhke of Frost and Cheree Moore of Waco; and numerous great nieces and nephews.
