Samuel Allan Moore, Sr., 82, of Port Charlotte, FL, died on July 14, 2021, after a year long battle with multiple health issues.

A memorial service will be held virtually on, starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 31. The family invites all to attend and reflect on Mr. Moore’s life.

Mr. Moore was born on Sept. 23, 1938, in Coffeen, to Samuel Wayne Moore and Noi Flo (Moreland) Moore. Mr. Moore met and married the love of his life, Nellie Eileen Fenton, on Sept. 23, 1956. Mr. Moore spent most of his early life in Coffeen and Hillsboro. A large portion of that time was spent in the woods hunting and fishing. He was an avid outdoorsman his whole life.

Mr. Moore provided for his family as a self-employed man for most of his working career. He also was a very spiritual man, joining the Hillsboro congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in June of 1973, then joining the Town Center congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Port Charlotte, FL in 2002. His family knew him as a devoted husband, father and grandfather; they will miss his contagious smile.

Sam is survived by his wife; children, Brenda Sue (Bob) Andrews, Bryon Lee Moore, Sr., and Julie Ann (Bart) Dunham; brother, Wendell Moore; ten grandchildren, Jody Bird, Joshua Rice, Joseph Rice, Seth Moore, Jessica Harding, Adam Moore, Megan Koester, Samantha Moore, Bryon Moore, Jr., and Dylan Borgic; ten great-grandchildren, Haley Smith, Emily Bird, Doamini Rice, Sienna Rice, Hazel Harding, Ariah Moore, Timberly Moore, Sawyer Moore, Levi Koester and Elijah Koester; and one great-great-grandchild, Killian Smith.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Samuel Allan Moore, Jr.; and siblings, Lloyd Moore, Dorothy Moore and Mary Benny.
