WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Friends and family of former McLennan County District Attorney and State Representative Tom Moore Jr. will say their goodbyes this weekend following his April 16 death.

Moore may best be known for prosecuting the first trial to ever appear on television. In 1955, he helped move the Washburn case from San Angelo to the McLennan County Courthouse where a single camera in the balcony of the courtroom broadcast the trial to Central Texas.

"Throughout the years it's been very rewarding, and I can't imagine a better life than what I've had in the field of law," Moore said about his career in a 2009 documentary."

After two terms in the Texas House of Representatives, Moore got into private practice at a firm in Waco. One of his clients later became his wife. 

"That's pretty much how things went." Robbie Moore, Tom's wife, said. "Once you met him and knew him, you loved him."

The couple was married for 32 years until Moore's death at the age of 98.

There is a public visitation for Moore Friday from 6-8 p.m. at Grace Gardens Funeral Home in Woodway. Moore's graveside service is set for 11:00 a.m. Saturday at Oakwood Cemetery in Waco.
