Charles Frank Moore (Charlie) was born April 30th, 1932 in Booneville, Indiana. He is survived by his wife Mildred Loretta Moore, son Charles Michael Moore, and daughter Deborah Lynn Moore. Also Mike’s wife Patricia Veronica Moore and two grand daughters Christina Veronica Moore and Stephanie Lynn Moore. He was predeceased by his siblings Thelma, George, Leonard, Orpheus and Lilly as well as his parents Ida and Jettie Moore. Charlie joined the military at 22 years of age and served two years in the US Army and 18 in the US Air Force. He met and married Mildred Loretta Gore (Millie) in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1959. Through his military service, he supported and raised his family in Arkansas, Texas, and then Miami, Florida where he honorably served in presidential support at Homestead Air Force Base. Charlie retired in 1974 after 20 years military service and then earned a second 20 year retirement from the Federal Reserve Bank, Miami Branch, retiring when he was 62. Charlie is most known for his family devotion and dedication to Christ sharing his Christian faith and teachings from Princeton Church of The Nazarene. Charlie’s most passionate past time was waterskiing and his family enjoyed the sport with him. Charlie was a member of the Miami Ski Club where he skied professionally until he was 73. Through the conviction of Country Gospel music by friend and recording artist Bob Willis, Charlie was brought back to the Lord. Charlie started promoting Bob’s albums door to door and spreading the word of Christ. Charlie also promoted Christian singers which included Laura Thrasher, Patty Pate, and the Canning Family. Charlie hosted a weekly radio show on WGLY (Where God Loves You) called Country Gospel Time. Charlie went home to be with the lord while surrounded by family on January 8th, 2021. We are saddened by our loss but rejoice in knowing that we will see him again in the sweet by and by.

Mrs. Moore, Debbie, Mike, Patty, Christina and Stephanie. Words cannot express my sorrow during this time of grief and loss. But please know of the impact Charlie (or Mr. Moore as I preferred to call him) had on my life. What a joy it was to know him, to talk to him about life, his service to this great nation, politics (always interesting :)), etc. Many people come and go in our lives, but few will leave the footprint he did to me and to so many of us. Without a doubt, he was one of the kindest men I know, full of compassion, and one who always made me realize I had chosen the right profession. God hears all our prayers, but if I needed "extra" prayers, I would always ask my dear friend Debbie to pass on the word to "Chuck and Millie", because I felt they had the express lane! :) He left this world a better place, and for that I'm grateful. He will be missed. Love to you all. Bonnie

We have fond memories of Charles Moore over the years. He always had an interest in knowing the core of a person and shared his wisdom and faith when we were together. The world is a better place through his legacy and spirit.

My Dad, Charlie Moore, was one of the smartest men I knew and is half of the reason I am who I am today. From early in life Dad stressed to me and my brother Mike to always try, always do the right thing, tell the truth and be true to yourself and your convictions. My Dad loved serving his Country and one knew immediately when they met him that he was a true patriot. To this day, I almost stop in my tracks when I see the American flag, as I learned very young from my Dad about the uncles I never met that were killed in the war. Dad said, it was an honor to defend the flag and that the sacrifice, even when losing his brothers was worth it because of our freedom. I will cherish Old Glory even more now when I see her fly in honor of Dad.
I appreciate all that my Dad taught me and the love and guidance he gave me to stay the course in important things. My Dad was extremely proud of my choice to go into government service and told me so very often. He was a true gentleman, a fierce protector of our family and he was a friend. I, as well as our family, will miss Dad immensely, but take great comfort knowing he is in Heaven as he was a good and faithful servant, and now my newest angel to watch over me.

Charlie Moore, my Dad was a loving father and devout spiritual leader. Growing up I thought he was tough on us but didn’t realize just how much he loved us. He taught us the importance of doing the right thing even when no body was watching and not to judge people based on their race or beliefs. Dad always set a good example and liked by people he met. He was the kind of person to help out his fellow man and deeply cared for their eternal soul. Growing up as a teenager, I really tried dad’s patience but appreciate the tough love and prayers that got me through it all. I later found myself after being married with kids sounding just like him and I too have found the need for tough love at times.

I deeply miss my father but am comforted by the knowledge that he is with our Father and Savior Jesus Christ.

Millie when I moved to Homestead you and Charlie made me feel so comfortable as I started to attend church Charlie's handshake and hug each Sunday made the day so amazing. He always had a special place in my heart.
