A lifelong public servant, Dennis Moore was a centrist Democrat from Kansas who represented a Republican Congressional district for six terms. He held his seat largely because of his old-fashioned approach to public service.

Dennis Moore died November 2 after a decade-long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. He would have been 76 on November 8.

In a statement, his wife, Stephene Moore, said during his fight with Alzheimer’s disease, he “remained happy, gracious, dignified and with a constant sense of humor for which he was known.” The statement went on to reveal the former Congressmen died after “a brief battle with cancer.”
