Eugene Moore, 73, the former Cook County recorder of deeds and a longtime Proviso Township politician, died Tuesday.

The cause was prostate cancer, which had recently metastasized to his bones, said Moore's daughter, Natalie. Moore was a lifelong Maywood resident who had lived with his daughter in the last year.

Moore had a long career managing accounts at Metropolitan Life Insurance. He rose through the ranks in Democratic politics in the 1990s, serving six years in the Illinois House and also holding the post of Proviso Township Democratic committeeman.

In January 1999, Moore was appointed to succeed Jesse White, who had been elected secretary of state, as recorder of deeds. The office administers records for Cook County properties, including notices of mortgages, sales and foreclosure. He retired from the job in 2012.

A graduate of Proviso East High School, Moore was a familiar face around Maywood. He was active in charities and organizations in the area, including the Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County and the John C. Vaughn Scholarship Fund, his daughter said.

"It was like my dad was always on the go, we had to share him with so many people," Natalie said. "Always in and out. But he would always come to anything we were participating in, his schedule could always be altered."

Moore, who was divorced, also is survived by another daughter, Dowanna; and a son, Eric.

Visitation is set for 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Second Baptist Church in Maywood, followed by a memorial service at 1:30 p.m.
