Delancey H. Moore died while buying suits for kids

From St. Clair County to Springfield and beyond, colleagues and friends were stunned to hear news that East St. Louis parole supervisor Delancey H. Moore died in the tornado Sunday that destroyed the K&G Fashion Superstore in Fairview Heights.

Moore, who also was the minister of St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church on North 42nd Street in East St. Louis, was at the store shopping for suits for seven boys who are members of his church, East St. Louis Mayor Carl Officer said.

Moore, 54, was purchasing suits for them to wear to church on Easter, Officer said, because their families were not able to purchase them.
