Richard (Rick) Harold Moore, age 74, of Rochester, Washington passed away on Thursday, September 16, 2021. Richard was born December 1, 1946 to Ruby Lucille Russell and Arthur Andrew Moore. He grew up in Napa, CA where he attended school in Georgetown, CA graduating in 1965. Rick was scouted to play professional baseball, but was drafted and joined the Army where he served in Vietnam from 1966 to 1967, receiving a purple heart. Rick had a passion for woodworking, animals and the Miami Dolphins. He was a friend to all that met him.

Rick is survived by his wife Verona Mae Slingerland Moore, whom he married in 1974 in Rochester, WA. His sons and daughters in law; Ronnie (Julie) , Bobby (Amanda), Roger (Katie) and Reggie Moore. He also leaves behind his six grandchildren who called him "Papa"; Carly, Jax, Calen, Garrett, Clayton and Owen. His siblings; Ron, Mike, Butch, Sheryl, Paddie and Jackie.

Rick is preceded by his parents Arthur Moore and Ruby Russell, as well as his brother Art Moore.

While it is quite normal for many fathers to engage in sports that their children are playing in. Rick was an extraordinary man who volunteered years to baseball, soccer, and anything else he could for his community even when his kids were grown and gone. He will surely be missed.

The family will be hosting a "Get Together" at the family home on October 17, 2021 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

I was blessed to grow up next to the Moore family. I will never forget what a loving and dedicated dad and husband Rick was. Life is not easy, but he made the best of what he had.
One of my fondest memories was an average summer evening mid 80’s, when I hung out with the “boys”, Ronnie, Bobby and Jeff and was included in their baseball game with Rick, Roger Stone and Verona holding Roger as a baby. Man, oh man. Rick and Roger S could snap that ball across the yard and into the field. I admire that Rick was showing the not so lucky neighbor kids, what a real dad does. Quality time and cheering us on.
You will be miss by all and I pray your legacy and patriotism will never be forgotten.
Sleep easy my friend.

Rick was a great man and I will miss him deeply. He was very caring and my receptionists loved him. Most the time I had to force them away from him so I could meet with him too. He often wore his sponge bob hat and shirt to honor his grandchildren. He had a deep love for his family and others. He also served out country at a high personal cost and was truly a brave man. I salute you Rick and will never forget you.

Rick came to our office, he was everyone's favorite. He would brighten up our lives! He was such a joy to have around.
The last time I saw him, he came into the back office where I was working and we just sat and talked, he always made people feel cared for, he remembered little details about everyone. I am so tankful that he came into the back office that day, I feel blessed to have had that quality time with him; little did I know that was the last time I would see him here on Earth.
The office doesn't feel the same without him, and I still think of him, and the light he brought into all our lives.
Thank you Rick for all that you did for us! We will see you again someday, when it is my time to go to Heaven I know just how to find you, I will ask for the joyful man in the SpongeBob hat.
