William E. Moore
William E. MooreFlagWilliam E. Moore, 95 of Richwood, died peacefully March 4, 2022 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born July 3, 1926 near Richwood (York Center) to the late Earnest A. and Grace (Sanders) Moore. On November 7, 1947 at the First Baptist Church in Richwood, he married Martha J. (Keigley), they celebrated over 70 years of marriage until her passing on January 1, 2018. He was also preceded in death by his brothers: Paul, Harry and Junior Moore and their wives.

Bill was a Corporal in the United States Army Medical Corps. During WW II. He served as Medical Supply Sergeant in the Clinic Dispensary, Paris, France. A true patriot, Bill was instrumental in raising funds for the North Union Veterans Memorial. He was also privileged to participate in the Honor Flight to Washington DC, where he visited the WW II Veterans Memorial.

Bill was lifelong farmer in Union County until retiring in 1989. He retired the same year from the Whirlpool Corporation in Marion, where he was a Maintenance Technician for 33 ½ years.
Bill and Martha enjoyed vacationing in Florida and spent many winters there after their retirement.

He was always ready and willing to lend a hand to fix whatever was broken for anyone in need. It wasn’t unusual for him to have “just the right part” in his truck. He was most famous for his “incredible” sweet corn (and lots of it!). most years his family would freeze over 100 cartons and then give away bushels to neighbors and friends.

Bill was a member of the Richwood First Baptist Church, where he was a trustee for many years. He was life member of both the Richwood VFW Post 870 and Baccarat American Legion Post 40, where he had served as commander. He also belonged to the 40 et 8. Bill spent many hours volunteering at the Richwood Fair where he displayed some of the many antique tractors he enjoyed restoring…mostly “red” ones. In 2006 he was honored as the Grand Marshall for the annual antique tractor parade.

He is survived by his children: Bonita Moore of Marion, Randy (Janie) Moore of Marion and Jerry Moore of Richwood
Granddaughter: Carrie (Scott) Szuch
Great grandsons: Matthew and Aaron Szuch
And many nieces and nephews

Memorial services will be held Friday March 11, 2022 at 6 pm at the Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home in Richwood, Pastor Brian Owens will officiate. Military Honors will be given by the Richwood Area Veterans, (Bill had been an active and dedicated member of this group for many years) Private burial will take place at a later date.
Friends may call two hours prior to the service beginning at 4 pm at the funeral home in Richwood.

Memorial gifts may be made to the First Baptist Church, 101 E. Ottawa Street Richwood, OH 43344 and the Richwood Independent Fair, PO Box 71 Richwood, Ohio 43344

Uncle Bill was one of the best.  When I started working at the Gazette Susie Leeper kept referring to Aunt Martha and Uncle Bill and I just adopted them as my own. Both Aunt Martha and Uncle Bill will be missed. Loved his smile and hugs.  Rest in Peace Uncle Bill. Hugs and prayers for all!

I have wonderful memories of Bill from the Richwood Civic Center. He and Martha were very active volunteers there: Men's Breakfast Club, making apple butter at the Fall Festival, setting up yard sales and all kind of events, dinners and especially the WWII {Stage Door Canteen} banquet where 12 WWII Vets were honored. Bill is the final one to leave us. Bless all of you in the family, and may your memories bring smiles, not sadness.

Bonita, Randy, & Jerry,
Mom & I are so sorry for your loss. We wish we were able to come to the funeral home to give you hugs.
Our parents were great friends, & I have so many good memories of your parents from my childhood, growing up down the road from them. Your dad was ornery & fun. He always called me "Julie Ann" just to tease me (Ann is not my middle name). In the blizzard of '78, Mom & I watched as Daddy & Bill disappeared from sight in the whiteout of the storm, walking down to your grandparents' place to close the barn doors & tend to the livestock. Once when Bill took me for a ride on his snowmobile, Ferguson's dog ran out to chase us & we ran over it -- the dog was fine, but I never got on a snowmobile again! I could go on...
Bill was steadfast in his patriotism, insisting on laying the wreath in Memorial Day services long after he physically should have retired from that duty. Thank you, Bill.
Love & Prayers,
"Julie Ann" & Janis

So Sorry for your loss. Bill was a great neighbor and reminded me a lot of my dad.  He came from the generation they call the "Greatest Generation" and I tend to believe it was. He loved his country, his family, church, and community and served them all. He was a hard worker to the end. I am going to miss seeing him on his tractor out mowing but take comfort in knowing he is now with the love of his life Martha.
