Captain Gerald Archibald Moore – 1932 – 2020
MOORE, Gerald Archibald – of Gravenhurst, passed away peacefully at Castle Peak Retirement Residence, Bracebridge, on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, in his 88th year. Gerald was the beloved husband of the late Phyllis (Millward). Loving father of Douglas (Carolyn), and Sharon (Greg). Dear brother of Joan (Trevor).
As a private man and one of few words, most knew very little about Gerry. Gerry was a Toronto Firefighter for 33 years retiring as a Captain in 1992. His family is incredibly proud of this. But as Gerry said very recently, when given acknowledgement of his service by a fellow first responder, “I’m just a regular guy”. His family knows differently. When retirement came around, Gerry and Phyllis moved to Gravenhurst and enjoyed being only an hour from the cottage. Gerry enjoyed his Retired Police and Firefighter Breakfasts and volunteering at the Grace and Speed Museum restoring wooden boats. Many friends were made in the community.
The family extends many thanks and appreciation to Dr. Kappos, the incredible nurses of the second floor at South Muskoka Memorial Hospital and all the staff at Castle Peak Retirement Residence. The great care you gave to Dad and to us will not be forgotten.
A private service will be held. The family appreciates your care and wishes and asks that, in lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution in his memory be made to Camp Bucko.
Contributions may be arranged through Cavill Funeral Home. To leave personal condolences, to view the full obituary and memories, please visit: www.cavillfuneralhome.com To plant a tree in memory of Gerald Archibald Moore, please visit our tribute store.
