Blanton Moore Obituary

Blanton DeWindt Moore was born in Huntsville, Texas. While his early years were spent in Houston with his mother, Carolyn A. Moore, most of his younger life was spent in Huntsville, where he lived with his grandparents, Felder and Iantha Jones. After graduating from Huntsville High School in 1980, Blanton entered the University of Texas in Austin in the fall of that year. He graduated from UT in the spring of 1984 with a BBA (major emphasis petroleum land management). Blanton remained in Austin after graduating and began his career as a lobbyist. He worked for former state Land Commissioner, Garry Mauro (D), for a number of years before starting his own consulting practice, BDMC. He still maintained a close relationship with Mauro till the time of his death. Besides a love for politics, Blanton was a true Austinite.

In addition to his mother and grandparents, Blanton was preceded in death by grandmother, Dorothy Scott Smither; aunt, Vickie Smither Williams, and cousin, Steven Solari. Special memories of Blanton will remain in the hearts of aunt, Dr. Marilyn Smither Byrd; cousins Shannon Kyle Byrd, Jason L. Williams, Jessica Y. Williams, Jarred B. Williams, other members of the extended family, and numerous friends and colleagues in Austin.
