David Timothy Moring was a man who loved in word and deed from the time he was born in Alaska until the day he was called Home. He was a humble man who never fully realized just how deeply loved and respected he was. A person never finished an interaction with him without knowing he or she mattered. Dave was raised in a godly home by Albert and Betty, where church was a regular part of his life. As he grew, he learned much about Jesus and cherished his King James Bible. But it was during his junior year at Kelly Walsh High School in Casper, WY when he had a profoundly personal encounter with God.
Dave’s older brother Tom was home from Montana Institute of the Bible on a visit to the family and the brothers began talking. Tom told Dave about all the new and wonderful things he was learning about God at MIB. It was then that Dave’s heart caught a new fire, and he began a lifelong journey of faith that culminated in the early hours of May 21, 2018 when Dave passed from earth to his eternal home in heaven. He now has forever to ask his beloved Jesus all of the questions that filled his mind while he was with us.
Upon graduation from high school, Dave also enrolled at MIB in Lewistown, MT. This decision revealed itself to be momentous not only because he grew in the faith and knowledge of the Bible and its principles, but also because it was there that he met a beauty queen from a tiny town in Montana. Kimberlee Jean Scammon caught his eye and quickly stole his heart. The two were married in Wibaux, MT on June 18, 1977. At least that’s what everyone told a certain blonde haired little brother who slept through the whole ceremony.
After the death of Dave’s father, Dave and Kim moved to Casper, WY to be near his mother. All three of their children were born during their years there and he also began his career with heavy equipment when he was hired by Wyoming Machinery where he had worked as a teenager. During the years in Casper, he discovered his love of preaching God’s Word. Though he had learned how to preach at Bible School, it was through an opportunity to fill the pulpit in his church for an extended period of time that he came into his own as a preacher. In 1987 they moved to Missoula, MT to take a job with another Caterpillar Dealer where he spent many years. He was later blessed with a position at Glidewell Insurance and Investments working with people he dearly loved. Dave continued to develop his gift of preaching and teaching at their home church, Lolo Community Church, when he was blessed to serve for a year as interim preacher. In 2009 a job change led Dave to Dakota Farms in Beach, ND which allowed for Kim to care for her aging mother.
Dave loved his family deeply. He and Kim were blessed with three children: Karalee, Daniel, and Allison. It gave Dave great joy to play with them and, as time passed, with his grandchildren: Shayn, Hailee, and Brittney. At family gatherings, Grandpa/Gruncle Dave, could usually be found by the squeals of delight coming from any children in attendance.
Dave loved music, particularly Southern Gospel. Kim tells of his morning routine of hooking up a portable speaker to his iPad and listening to the Booth Brothers as he prepared for the day. In the months preceding his dream vacation to Alaska, Dave discovered a passion for photography. In the following years, he was rarely far from his camera and could often be found photographing God’s great creation which he held in awe.
Dave is missed by his wife, Kimberlee; son Daniel (Vera) Moring, daughters Allison Lewis and Karalee (Kevin) Kem; his brother Tom (MeriEsther) Moring, his sisters Rebecca (Michael) Shaffer and Julie (Ken) Waag; his mother Betty (Backstrom) Knight; his grandchildren Shayn and Hailee (Daniel and Vera) and Brittany (Karalee and Kevin); brothers-in-law Kory (Lynn) Scammon and Kyle (Beth) Scammon; and numerous nieces, nephews, and grandnieces and grandnephews.
Dave is preceded in death by his father Albert Moring, step-father David Knight, nephews Jeffrey and Evan Moring, and mother-in-law Violet (Meidinger) Scammon.Moring David
