Charles Moore quietly slipped into paradise on Nov. 27, 2012, after a
brief illness. He will be sorely missed by his family and his many friends. Many words describe Charlie Moore: loving husband, model father, doting grandfather and loyal friend are just a small sampling of who this man was. He was a man who treated
everyone he met fairly and with respect. He never turned down a request for help from his family and friends and even a stranger, if the need presented itself. He and his wife Dumpy would have been married 61 years on Nov. 30, a testament of his love
and compassion for his bride. He was the best father a son could ever hope to have. He taught his boys compassion, humility and respect for their fellow man. In his eyes, his grandchildren and his great-grandchildren were the diamonds of his family
jewels. There were no better loved grandchildren on this earth. As a friend, he was always there when called upon to help anyone of his hundreds of friends. No task to large, no request too small. If he was able to help you, you knew you could count
on him. In addition to the above mentioned qualities, he was also a police officer for the Louisiana DOTD for 38 years, a job he dearly loved and excelled at. He was famous for his delicious fried catfish and Mexican cornbread. He entertained a whole
host of friends and family for many, many years in his infamous outdoor kitchen; all those in attendance were treated like royalty when at Charlie’s house. To sum things up, Charlie Moore was a man you could not help but love once you met him! I bid
you farewell my sweet loving Daddy, I wait for the day when we shall meet again.
He was preceded in death by his father, Hardin Moore; mother, Ida Hughes and stepfather, Sandy Hughes.
He is survived by his wife of 61 years,
Wanda “Dumpy” Moore of Leesville; sons, Douglas Moore and wife, Lisa of Anacoco, Bobby “Pee Wee” D. Moore and wife, Theresa of St. Martinville, and Ronnie Hagan and wife JoAnn of Hicks; brother, Bobby L. Moore and wife, Billie of Pickering;
half-brothers, Donald Moore and wife Sharon of Anacoco, and Billy Moore of Minnesota; grandchildren, Jeramy Richards and wife Jolie of Merryville, and Tammy Jones and husband, Travis of Longville; and great-grandchildren, Ryan Jones, Deanna Jones,
Evelyn Richards and Sylvia Richards.
