Lyman Ferris Moored, 92 of Jenison, died Friday, March 26, at Metro Health Village in Wyoming.
Born April 4, 1928, in Salem Township, the son of the late Lynn and Helen (Ford) Moored and the husband of the late June (Brenner) Moored. Lyman served in the United States Navy and then went on to continue his education at Grand Rapids Junior College.
He took a position with Consumers Energy in Allegan for a while and then moved to Temperance, Mich., where he owned and operated his own Sunoco full-service gas station. His last career move resulted in Lyman owning and operating an audiology/hearing facility that provided custom made hearing aides. He also served on the Michigan State Medical Board under Governor Milliken.
In his spare time, Lyman enjoyed his time in the outdoors, whether he was hunting, fishing, sailing, or riding his motorcycle. He also enjoyed woodworking.
After retirement Lyman and June built their dream home in the U.P. in Au Train, where they lived for a time before settling in Jenison, Michigan. During their retirement, they would travel from state to state in their motor home and would spend the three months or so in Florida before coming back to Michigan. Lyman and June enjoyed their adventures together until June’s passing in February 2018.
Lyman was a member of the Masonic Lodge and since he and June never had any children, he loved entertaining children by being a clown. He would visit children at various children’s hospitals and also participated in the Macy Parade in Detroit.
Lyman is survived by his sister, Margaret Conrad; sister-in-law, Alice Brenner; and many special nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 20, at the Salem Township Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lyman’s name to Faith Hospice of Byron Center, 8214 Pfeiffer Farms Drive SW, Byron Center,
