HUBBARD — Gary C. Moore, 81, passed away at home, surrounded by his family, on Thursday morning, Sept. 1, 2022.
Gary was born Aug. 10, 1941, in Youngstown, the oldest son of Charles F. and Jeanette Beach Moore.
He was a veteran of the United States Navy, and upon his honorable discharge, worked as a train conductor for Norfolk Southern Railroad for 41 years, retiring in 2011. He was also an independent semi-truck driver (during a layoff period from the railroad) from 1982 to 2002.
In addition, he was an airplane pilot and obtained his license in 1966. Flying was mainly a hobby, but he flew part-time for McKinley Air Transport for a short time. His other hobby was golf; he was an avid player, making three holes-in-one during his tenure.
Gary loved the Lord and was a member of Burghill Baptist Church in Burghill.
He leaves behind his loving wife of 59 years, Myrtlann (Mert) Moore; and daughters, Lori Weaver and Tina Moore, both of Hubbard; three grandchildren, Brandi (William) Miller, Cameron Weaver and Austin Moore, all of Hubbard; and four great-grandchildren, Stella, Bentley, William and Jacqie.
He also leaves his siblings, David (Terri) Moore of Masury, Linda (Allen) Buck of Nashville, Tenn., and Elaine (Carl) Hoffman of Warren; and 19 nephews and nieces, and their children.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Edwin F. Moore; and three nephews, Eugene “Genie” Buser III, Jonah Buck and Stephen Hackett.
Special thanks to Dr. Howard Slemons and Crossroads Hospice for their compassionate care.
