Robert Allen Moore was born May 11th, 1958 in Fortuna California. He died suddenly while working in Alamo Nevada on February 24th, 2021.
As a young child, his family lived in Bull Creek, and later moved to Fruitland Ridge where he grew up. He graduated from South Fork High School in 1976 and went to work in the logging and construction industries, where he found his calling running heavy equipment. He spent many good years working for Van Meter Logging. He also worked at Pacific Lumber Company and was currently working for Steve Manning Construction. He was an excellent equipment operator and skilled diesel mechanic, who could drive and fix almost anything. He enjoyed everyone he worked with over the years.
He married his wife, Judy, in 1983, they had three children and six grandchildren. They built a beautiful home together in Fruitland Ridge where they raised their family. He was a loving husband and father who loved spending time with his grandchildren. He was always there for his family, whether it was to help us solve a problem or celebrate an accomplishment. To us, he seemed like the most knowledgeable man in the world as he had a helpful answer for everything. It seemed like there was nothing he could not help us figure out. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed exploring new places. Over the years, Robert and Judy went on many road trips. Niagara Falls was especially impressive to him. In the off season he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and traveling. We will always cherish the time we spent with him in Ruth lake, Clearlake, on the Lost Coast Trail, and at our home on Fruitland Ridge.
He is preceded in death by his father Edgar Moore, his mother Marie Moore, and his two brothers Larry Moore and Gary Moore.
He is survived by his wife, Judy Moore, his children Katrina Holtzclaw (Justin), Alisha Putney (Jim) and Allen Moore. His grandchildren Joshua, Jeremy, Mason, Roger, Hannah, Liam, and bonus granddaughters Avalon and Lilia. He is also survived by his sister Linda Hilburn (Ray), sisters-in-law Mary Moore and Laura Moore and numerous nieces and nephews.
He will be dearly missed by his family and the many friends he made along the way.
A heartfelt thank you from our family to Steve Manning and his crew for all they did for Rob at the end of his life.
