Andrew Cecil “Scrappy” Moore, Jr., of Signal Mountain, passed away quietly on November 5, 2021.

He was born in Chattanooga on November 4, 1933, to Andrew C. “Coach Scrappy” Moore, Sr., and Helen Ferguson Moore.

A graduate of the McCallie School, he received a B.A. in Business from the University of Chattanooga. After college, Scrappy served in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany. He married Elizabeth Ann Edwards in 1957. His first job was with Container Corporation of America where he earned salesman of the year.

A serial entrepreneur at heart, Scrappy started several companies including TEPPCO packaging, Bavarian Auto Restorations, Scrappy custom tailors, a trucking company, and a warehousing business.

Scrappy and his wife Liz loved traveling and visited Europe, Africa, Brazil, and many National Parks in the U.S. and Canada. They were dedicated McCallie and UTC Mocs fans and also volunteered regularly at the Chattanooga Food Bank.

Scrappy’s faith was very important in his life. He grew up attending First Christian Church downtown, and he regularly attended a Friday morning Bible study led by Ralph Hill.

He loved gathering together and entertaining his family and friends. Scrappy particularly enjoyed playing practical jokes and storytelling about his many adventures. Making others laugh made him very happy.

He is survived by his wife of 64 years Liz, his sons Andrew “Chris” Moore, III, (Elizabeth) of Atlanta and Thomas Edwards Moore (Lisa) of Ringgold, and his granddaughters Catherine Elizabeth Moore and Helen Girardeau Moore of Atlanta. Other survivors are brother-in-law William “Bill” Edwards (Gladys) of Signal Mountain and Tom Edwards (Beverly) of Austin, Texas, sister-in-law Ronnie Moore of Branson, Mo., and nephews Dr. David Moore (Leslie) of High Point, N.C., Wesley Moore (Carolyn) of Ponte Vedra, Fla., William Edwards (Anna) of Durham N.C., Bryan Edwards (Sharon) of Gallatin, Tenn., Geof Edwards (Pat) of San Antonio, Texas, Jon Edwards (Michelle) of Austin, Texas, and Dr. Erick Edwards (Emily) of Knoxville.

Scrappy was preceded in death by his son Scott Johnston Moore, his brother David Ferguson Moore, and his parents.

The funeral will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 18, at First Christian Church in Chattanooga.

The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the McCallie or UTC athletic programs.
