Obituary of George Harold Moore

Please share a memory of George to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

George Harold Moore passed away peacefully at the age of 93 years old.

He was surrounded by the love of his wife Eleanor, family and dear friends.

He is survived by his wife Eleanor Moore of Castor, Nephews, George

Moore (Jill), John Moore (Denise), David Moore and niece Anne Crutchley

(Micheal), of Isle of Man. Brother in law Charles Chipchase, sister in law

Ruth Mohr (Richard) all of Drayton Valley and numerous nieces and

nephews across Alberta and British Columbia. He was predeceased by his

mother Catherine Quayle and father William Moore, and brothers Stanley

Moore and William Moore, all of Isle of Man.

George was born on July 30, 1930 in Ramsey, a small village on the north

east coast of the Isle of Man. At the age of 27 years old, he sought

adventure and his passage brought him to Canada. This is where he heard

that John and Catherine Blume were looking for a hired hand to help on

their farm outside of Castor. George thought he would see what supper

was like, to help him make the decision to stay on or not. It must have

been good as he remained employed there for 60 years.

On April 12, 1969 he married Eleanor and they settled on their farm east of

town. Here they grain farmed on the land and enjoyed his two Clydesdales

draft horses, Mindy and Scotty. In spare time, he took pride in refurbishing

era styled wagons and carts for the team to pull him and guests around the

farm. He was an active member with both the Canadian Hereford

Association and with the Castor United Church and Choir.

Many, many thank yous to the staff at Our Lady of the Rosary Hospital,

Castor, Alberta for their constant care and love for George.

Funeral will take place at the Knox United Church in Castor, Alberta and

interment at the Castor Cemetery, luncheon to follow. In lieu of flowers,

please make a donation to the charity of choice or the Alzheimer's
