H. Earl Moyer, Jr. 3/25/1929-10/23/2020
Earl Moyer, beloved husband, father, grampa and great-grampa passed away in his sleep on October 23, 2020. Earl was born the eldest of four children to H. Earl Moyer, Sr. and Gladys née Richardson in Colorado City, Texas on March 25, 1929. He was a late walker and early talker. As a teen he was an ice man, paperboy, and worked in the oil fields. He joined the U. S. Army right out of high school and served as a radio DJ, guard and wheeler-dealer in Occupied Japan.
After his service he went to the University of Oklahoma and then University of Colorado and Westminster Night College of Law (now D. U. Law School). Earl had a solo law practice for many years and later formed a partnership with his dear friend, Leonard Beal and then the young whippersnapper, John R. Vranesic. After helping a great many people, he retired in 2013, having practiced for fifty-seven years.
Beyond his love of his family and the law, he was an avid reader, golfer, poker player and sports fanatic.
He is preceded in death by his parents, siblings, and son Lawrence Earl Moyer. He is survived by his devoted wife, Patti, his sons William Earl Moyer (Mona) of Vancouver, WA, Richard Wooten of Arvada, CO, Michael Wooten (Michele) of Longmont, CO and daughters Sharon Woudenberg (Bill) of Ogden, UT and Maryann Mah (Danny) of Arvada, CO as well as eleven grandchildren and twelve great-grandkids.
He is much loved and will be greatly missed. He was a hero in a hat and a bolo tie instead of a cape.
