Robert Todd Moore Sr.
April 23, 1941 – April 6, 2018
COLUMBIA - Robert Todd Moore, Sr., 76, died on Friday, April 6, 2018, from Parkinson’s disease. He had suffered from this disease for several years. He is preceded in death by his parents, George Thomas and Ethel Virginia Frierson Moore, Sr. He is survived by his son, Robert Todd Moore, Jr., his daughter-in-law, Emily, and grandson, Cooper Thomas Moore. Also, surviving are his daughter Tara and son-in-law, Terry Gardner and grandson, Shane and granddaughter, Morgan.
In addition, Bobby is survived by his twin sister, Catherine Elizabeth “Betty” and her husband Frederic Anton “Fred” Wolthoff, Jr., and their two sons, Frederic Anton, III, and Matthew, and his wife Heidi, and their sons Jonah, Joshua and their daughter Katelynn. Finally, he is survived by elder brother, George Thomas Moore, Sr.
Bobby (and Betty) were born in Lake City, S.C. on April 23, 1941 and shortly moved to Columbia, S.C. After a few months we moved to a new house directly behind the Olympia School. We all three graduated! Bobby participated in football and other athletics. He and most others, loved Coach Giles.
Bobby was a mechanic at the Columbia Post Office where he labored for over 40 years. Bobby had a struggle (don’t we all) at Parris Island, but he passed and he was a genuine Marine. And he was proud of it!
He later had two loves – woodworking and square dancing. He made several beautiful pieces of furniture but much of his time after work was spent at the Columbia Twirlers, where he served at times as the President.
Robert was a member of the Whaley Street United Methodist Church growing up, but in his later life, he joined St. Andrews Baptist Church where he sang in the choir. He also sang with the Joy Singers and “Beau’s Boys” class.
A memorial service will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at Whaley Street United Methodist Church, with burial in Greenlawn Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. Monday, April 9, 2018, at Dunbar Funeral Home, Devine Street Chapel. Please sign the online guestbook at www.dunbarfunerals.com.

Robert “Bobby” Moore was a well known Olympian and was greatly loved. I went to Olympia along with most of my family and we all knew him. We did not know of Bobby’s passing until today (Wednesday) and we want to express our sincere sympathy to his family and friends. My husband Robert, also worked at the US Post Office for 40 years and was also a Marine like Bobby and he did not recognize his name because he was called Bobby at the Post Office. Please accept our deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Robert & Linda (Williams) Geddings
