Moats were once built as fortification for castles or a small town; their sole purpose and design was to serve as protection for what they encircled. Officer Kenny R. Moats swore an oath to protect and serve the people within his town and surrounding community, which he did unwaveringly until August 25th, 2016. At which time, his small town and surrounding county then stood up and gave protection and service to his family, for he had given the ultimate sacrifice that day in the line of duty. The community stood strong and proud as it rose to the aid of Officer Moats's family, and honored him with a noble farewell.
Officer Kenny R. Moats did more than just his sworn duty on any given day. He was a compassionate man who did whatever he could for others, continually putting someone else's needs before his own. It wasn't just a job; it was who this man was. He gave from the last dollar in his pocket to his life.
Creating a Legacy through Officer Moats Foundation, a 501C3 non-profit organization that honors the man and continues to give in his name is the driving force behind the foundation. To give back and thank a community who was compassionate, giving and kind when the Moats family needed it most.
We as members of his family unite in this journey and ask others to join us so this Organization may grow and come to aid those in need.
