MOORE, Bruce Moore - Obituary | Print |

MOORE, Bruce -

It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Bruce Moore after a lengthy battle with Lewy Body Dementia.

Beloved husband of Benita, devoted father of Alex, cherished father-in-law and dear friend to Sherri and unforgettable Grampy Brucey to Aidan, Brendan and Lilly. He is also missed by Lola and Freddie. Science fiction fan, foodie, inventor, video game master and visionary, Bruce always had a kind word for his friends and family. His soulmate Benita changed his life for good and they became inseparable.

He had a love affair with hot sauce and mustards of all kinds and made increasingly weird sandwiches the last few years.

Always the iconoclast, Bruce was a citizen of the planet who enjoyed gin and tonic as well as natural herbs. He was an original; a brave man who taught everyone around him and never missed a chance to help a friend.

Because of his worry that we would throw him a high-falutin' funeral, we will be having a small gathering in London on Sunday, July 27th at 3:00 p.m. Email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for details.

In lieu of flowers, the family believes that Bruce would have preferred "Eradicate Polio" Survival Gifts from UNICEF.
