Passed away peacefully at Centre Regional Health Centre surrounded by his loving family Frederick George Moore at the age of 90.
Fred was predeceased by his parents: George and Winnifred Moore; brothers: Arthur and Robert.
He leaves to mourn his wife Marie Moore (Patey); children: Winnie (Wayne) Fisher, Jim (Sue) Moore, Peter (Cathy) Moore, Betty (Randy) Elliott and Anne (Rod) Hamilton; grandchildren: Dale (Nancy), Susan (Troy), Stacey (Matthew), Sandy, Michelle, Christopher and Chad; great-grandchildren: Danielle, Megan, Spencer and Finnley; two sisters: Dorothy and Grace Moore; sisters-in-law Edina and Ute Moore, as well as a large circle of other family and friends.
Even though Fred worked as an accountant for all of his career, everyone who knew him could say that his real work took place outside of the office. His free time involved manual labour, no easy way out for him. Countless hours spent crawling around in dirt planting crops, or trudging his way over bogs and brooks to get to his cabins, pick berries, catch trout or check his rabbit snares.
During his last 30 years, Fred spent many days developing his family cabin and property which he lovingly named “Moorehaven”. He treasured every trip spent there with family and friends.
Fred will always be remembered and respected for his love of family, brilliant mind, extraordinary sense of humour and his endless support to charitable organizations.
Family will be accepting visitors at Hoskins Funeral Home on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 10:30 a.m. followed by a Memorial Service at 11:30 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of one’s choice.
