Obituary for Bob Moore

Bob MooreRobert Keith Moore: As Bob would say: “Just tell them I died!” So there it is! Bob slipped into new life on May 13, 2017.

Chicago, IL was where Bob was born on December 16, 1934, the son of Guy S. and Ursula E. (Fischenich) Moore.

He and Bobbie (Nowaczyk) met and sang together at Musichorale in Chicago. They married in Hawaii on October 13, 1976. Forty years of married bliss. Yuk! Yuk!

Bob worked at ANCO (Cherry-Burrell) for 30 years. Driving, his cat Cheyenne, bird watching, mountains and wildflowers were life-long passions. He loved working on cars and fixing things around the house. You didn’t call a repairman when Bob was around! Most people remember Bob for his quick wit and breadth of knowledge. Volunteering with Prison Ministry on Monday nights at Luther Luckett Correctional Facility was his religious community.

Surviving Bob is his wife Bobbie; brother Guy Moore (Julie); sister Mary Ann Schlacks (recently deceased Conrad); many beloved nieces, nephews, and his family of friends/caregivers. Preceding Bob are his parents; brother Bill; nephews Mike Moore, Chuckie Chapin, niece Berta Foxworthy; brothers-in-law Conrad Schlacks, Frank Nowaczyk Jr (Jeanette), Jerry Nowaczyk (Kum Suk) and James Sisk (Maryanne).

Visiting will be on Thursday, May 25, 2017 from 6:00 to 7:30 PM with a prayer service at 7:30 PM in Epiphany Catholic Church, 914 Old Harrods Creek Rd. On Friday, May 26, 2017, there is visiting at 9:00 AM, with a celebration of Bob’s life at 10:00 AM, St. William Catholic Church, 1226 W. Oak St. A luncheon will follow at Hotel Louisville, 120 W.
