The Casket - - Obituaries -

Fu­neral ser­vice for the late Charles Wil­liam Moore, 66, Port Hil­ford, Guys­bor­ough County, was held Septem­ber 22 in St. Paul’s Ro­man Catholic Church, Sher­brooke, with Father Lazarus Guria of­fi­ci­at­ing. Burial was in St Paul’s Ceme­tery, Still­wa­ter.

Mr. Moore died Septem­ber 16, 2018, at home.

Born Septem­ber 23, 1951, in Fred­er­ic­ton, New Bruns­wick, he was a son of the late Ersel F. Moore and Rev. Josephine (Kin­ley) Moore. He spent most of his child­hood in Wolfville and Sher­brooke. He mar­ried He­len Durham of Span­ish Point, Ber­muda, in 1974. He worked for Hal­i­fax Cable­vi­sion and Stright­mackay, Pic­tou, later es­tab­lish­ing Bar­quen­tine Ven­tures to sell sail­boats and yacht­ing equip­ment. In 1982, he moved to Port Hil­ford and pur­sued a ca­reer as a writer. His first writ­ing gig at age 20 was Wheelin Around, a col­umn in the Dal­housie Gazette. He was a reg­u­lar print colum­nist for At­lantic Fish­er­man, The Guys­bor­ough Jour­nal, and the NB Tele­graph Jour­nal, as well as a fre­quent con­trib­u­tor to many other mag­a­zines, news­pa­pers and pe­ri­od­i­cals. He was an on­line colum­nist for sev­eral Mac­in­tosh com­put­ing sites as well as a syn­di­cated writer of opin­ion pieces and a writer and ed­i­tor for Tex­as­based Bionews Ser­vices, an on­line med­i­cal re­search publi­ca­tion. He loved cars, sail­boats, pho­tog­ra­phy, gui­tars and cab­i­net mak­ing. He read widely and could draw from his acute mem­ory to sup­port en­thu­si­as­tic de­bate. He was mod­er­a­tor of an on­line re­li­gion fo­rum for many years. He lived and worked with chronic ill­ness which forced his abrupt re­tire­ment a year ago.

He is sur­vived by his wife, He­len; two daugh­ters, Ha­ley (Christo­pher Me­lan­son), Saint John, N.B.; Deirdre, Bos­ton; sis­ter, El­iz­a­beth (Rev. Wil­liam) Shep­pard; half-brother, Philip Moore, Fred­er­ic­ton; niece, Re­bekah (Dr. Martin) Mccal­lum; nephew, David Shep­pard; cousins, neph­ews, nieces and their fam­i­lies.

He was pre­de­ceased by three half-brothers, Craig, Hed­ley and Shirley Moore.
