Dick Moore

Death Notice

MOORE, LCol Richard (Dick) Goldthorpe - It is with great sadness that we announce Dick’s peaceful passing at Marian Villa, London, Ontario on September 16, 2016. Loving husband of Janifer Moore, father to Nancy Dubois (Dave) and Susan Moore; stepfather to Joel and David Taggart. Predeceased by his wife Barbara and daughter Sandy Jackson. Grandfather to Dana and Robyn Dubois, Bradley Jackson, Andrew Moore and Holly McAndless, and Frank Taggart. His leadership in the community extended from 35 years as an elementary school principal, to his lifetime commitment to the 9 Signals Regiment/22 Service Battalion of the Canadian Armed Forces Militia including belonging to the Royal London Military Institute and a member of the Officer’s Mess at Wolsely Barracks. He was also proud to be a member of the London Amateur Radio Club, the Ontario Rifle Association in which he was a lifetime member and twice a representative on the Canadian Bisley Rifle Team. In his spare time, he was an accomplished photographer, a member of the Masonic order (The Tuscan Lodge), a member of the Shriners’ Trumpet Band, the Vimy Branch #145 of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Crumlin Sportsman Association as well as a recreational small craft pilot. His thoughts were never far from the ski hills where he engaged not only his family but countless students.

Friends will be received at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, on Monday, September 19th from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. A funeral service will be held at St. Luke’s Anglican Church (where he was the longest standing member of the congregation), 1204 Richmond St., London at 11:00 am on Tuesday, September 20th. A celebration of his life will be held immediately following the service in the Church hall.

Donations, in lieu of flowers, to St. Luke’s Anglican Church (Broughdale) or the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
