Charles William “Bill” Moore, 82, passed away surrounded by his family in Albany, OR at the Samaritan Evergreen Hospice House on August 26, 2017.

Bill was born on May 5, 1935 in Mason City, NE to James and Eleanor (Thorn) Moore as their fourth child on the family farm. He attended elementary school near Mason City and graduated from Mason City High School in 1953. He entered the Army and served until 1957. When he returned from the service, he worked in the oil well industry near Kimball, NE.

Bill moved to Albany, OR in 1958. He married Rita Moore on October 17, 1958 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Albany. Rita preceded him in death in 2014.

As a master craftsman and finish carpenter, Bill spent over 30 years remodeling and building custom homes before retiring in 1997. Prior to becoming a carpenter, he worked at Oremet and the Albany Fire Department.

Bill had strong faith, attending mass regularly at St. Mary’s where he was a long-time, dedicated member and supporter. He will be remembered for his love of music and dancing, especially The Polka. Bill enjoyed sports including supporting the local high schools, cheering on the OSU Beavers, and watching his favorite teams on TV. He was proud of his home, yard, and flower and vegetable gardens, especially the fresh tomatoes he grew every summer. Bill had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh and spend time catching up with family and friends. He loved his family and being around them at reunions and gatherings. He spent many hours being entertained by his great-grandkids who always brought a smile to “Grandpa Bill”. Bill and family members made many trips in his favorite Cadillac to Nebraska to visit family for weddings and other events. Another favorite activity for Bill was showing up at Cork’s Donuts for coffee and time with friends.

Bill was fortunate to receive special care from his full-time, in-home caregiver, Tracy Mullins, for whom his family is forever grateful. He will be dearly missed by not only his family but by the many friends he made during his lifetime.

Bill is survived by son Bob (Michelle) of Albany; daughter Kathy (Larry) Westberg of Albany; daughter Jan (Doug) Knudtson of Albany; son David (Tammy) of Tualatin; grandchildren Kristen Moore, Katie Moore, Kari (Kyler) Shinn, Chase (Kelsey) Granger, and Austin (Anna) Granger; Jennifer (Rob) Bornheimer, Lindsey (Sean) Austin, Mitchell Westberg, and Maggie Westberg; Kyle (Ashley) Knudtson and Brooke (Rosco) Huebner; great grandchildren Brandon Granger, Vanessa Granger, Kyntlee Shinn, Kashton Shinn, and Veronica Granger; Macy Bornheimer, Kellen Bornheimer , Natalee Austin, and Olive Austin; Hollyn Huebner, Myla Huebner, Cole Knudtson, and Davis Knudtson.
