Lorenza Alexander Moore was born February 3, 1957, to the late Charlie Mae and Perry Moore, Sr. at Good Samaritan Hospital in Selma (Dallas County), Alabama. Lorenza was raised in Perry County and was the youngest of six brothers and sisters.
At an early age, Lorenza confessed Christ at Hopewell Baptist Church.
Lomo or Renny, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, work ethic was seen in every task he undertook. From working for his father’s painting business, to moving furniture, to working for a funeral home, Lorenza always committed himself to a high level of professionalism and dedication to every job he held.
Instilled in him by his father, it was this innate commitment to professionalism that ultimately led him to a career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Lorenza led an impressive career with the FBI, quickly making his way through the ranks and eventually retiring as team leader of the Evidence Response Team. Lorenza touched so many lives throughout his career while working many high-profile cases, teaching classes to law enforcement officers all over the country, and courageously serving his country at ground zero after the 9/11 Terrorists Attack in New York City.
Along with the many men and women Lorenza served with, his generosity and down to earth nature will also be missed by his home church, First Missionary Baptist Church of East Thomas, where he served as the head of the trustee board.
Lorenza was a loving husband to his wife, Renethia of 45 years and a dedicated father to his daughter, Charlene. Lorenza was always known for his work ethic and professionalism, but as a grandfather to his three granddaughters, his playful nature was kindled. He fiercely loved his granddaughters, spending time teaching them how to ride a bike, play golf, shooting a basketball, and eventually teaching his oldest granddaughter how to drive.
Lorenza Moore passed away Mar 2, 2023.
Lorenza is survived by his wife, Renethia; his daughter, Charlene (Roderick); his granddaughters, Chloe, Ryleigh and Averie; his brothers and sisters, Juliette Munos, Reverend Perry Moore, Jr., Merlene Stewart, David (Shirley) Moore and Jimmy Moore; his mother-in-law, Isabella King; sisters-in-laws, Ludean King-Wyatt and Anginetta King and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
