MANSFIELD: William F. Moore, 63, of Mansfield, passed away on March 30, 2014 at his home.
He was born April 4, 1950 to Hilda Ann Hughes Gaubatz of Mansfield and William L. Moore, deceased.
Bill was a 1968 graduate of Malabar High School. He was a proud but humble veteran honorably discharged from the United States Army after serving during the Vietnam War and receiving numerous medals for his service. After completing his military service, Bill worked in construction for most of his life. He was admired for his carpentry skills through his very creative vision demonstrating his artistic ability when remodeling homes.
Bill enjoyed spending time with his family camping and fishing. He was the proud father of sons, Kris of Mansfield, Kevin (Heidi) of Ft. Myers, Florida, Kurt and Kyle of Lakeland, Ohio. "Pa Pa Bill" cherished his time with his grandchildren, Trevin and Rudy, both of Mansfield. He is also survived by his sisters, Nancy (Robert) Davis of Fort Smith, Arkansas and Wendi Ayers of Mansfield; brothers, Ron Moore and Gary Gaubatz, both of Mansfield; and a special cousin, Leigh (Phil) Cascioli of Columbus, Ohio.
Bill was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Arthur and Clo Hughes; his paternal grandparents, Russell and Naomi Moore; step- father, Jacob Gaubatz; brother-in-law, Marvin Ayers; and his special aunt and uncle, Charlotte and Hobart Robinson.
We will all remember Bill for his quick wit and his love for his family and friends.
A military memorial service will be held at a later date in the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery, Rittman, Ohio.
