James Curtis Moore, better known as "Teapot," was born on February 25, 1957 to Frank Theodore Moore and Vera Mae Gage-Moore in Phillips County, Arkansas.
Teapot professed a hope in Christ early in life.
Upon graduating from Marvell High School in 1977, Teapot worked various jobs in the labor and agricultural industries.
In 1990, he was united in Holy Matrimony with Brenda Graves, with whom he had one (1) daughter. After the conclusion of this union, he later met Andrea Wilborn, with whom he had two (2) sons.
Teapot loved rural living and was a proud resident of his beloved Turkey Scratch. In fact, he called himself, “The Mayor of Turkey Scratch” — the counterpart to his cousin, Milton Nelson, whom he called, “The Mayor of Midway.” Teapot relished all the trappings of country life, such as spending time in nature, and caring for livestock and dogs. He had a great love of music and was an avid fan of the singing group, The Temptations. Teapot was known for his sense of humor and his wit. He particularly enjoyed sharing amusing stories and personal memories.
Teapot was preceded in death by his father and mother; his three (3) brothers: Michael Moore, Theodis Moore, and David Moore; and a niece: Tiffany Ann Brooks-Thurston.
Teapot’s memory will dwell in the hearts of his family, which includes three (3) children: Shavon Moore, Travis (Denise) Moore, and James Moore; four (4) sisters: Ethel (Dwight) Brooks, Gloria Greenwood, Brenda Hills, and Algie (Charles) Johnson; and three (3) grandchildren: Jaden Moore, Janiyah Moore, and Jordan Moore.
Teapot's memory will also dwell with an abundance of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
