In memory of
Harry Richard Moore
Peacefully on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at the Selkirk & District General Hospital, Harry Moore of Selkirk Manitoba passed away at the age of 92. He leaves behind his wife of 56 years, Betty; children Derek (Michele), John and Karen; grandchildren Codey, Gerald and Odessa and Gerald's Mom Melinda. He also leaves behind his two sisters Joan and Peggy; two sisters-in-law Gail and June and brother-in-law Oryst. Harry was predeceased by his parents Henry and Nellie; sisters Dorothy, Colleen and Irene; brother Jack and several brothers-in-law. Harry was born in Port Arthur (Thunder Bay), Ontario on January 10, 1925 and attended school there. He worked at various jobs before he started his career at the Fort William (Thunder Bay) Post Office in 1952. This is where he met his future wife Betty and they married on May 21, 1960. The family moved to The Pas in 1967 where he assumed his new position as Postmaster. In 1973 they moved to Selkirk and Harry continued in his position at the Post Office until his retirement in 1985. Harry was a jack of all trades and could fix and build anything. At the age of 60, he became interested in computers and many came to him for advice, there wasn't a computer he couldn't fix. At his request, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of your choice. The family would like to thank Dr. Richard Linden Schmidt for all of the years that he cared for Harry and to all of the staff at the Hospital for taking such great care of him.
