Charles Moore quietly slipped into paradise on Wednesday November 27th after a brief illness. He will be sorely missed by his family and his many friends. Many words describe Charlie Moore: loving husband, model father, doting grandfather and loyal friend are just a small sampling of who this man was. He was a man who treated everyone he met fairly and with respect. He never turned down a request for help from his family and friends and even a stranger if the need presented itself. He and his wife Dumpy would have been married sixty-one years on this November 30th; a testament of his love and compassion for his bride. He was the best father a son could ever hope to have. He taught his boys compassion, humility & respect and for their fellow man. In his eyes his grandchildren and his great grandchildren were the diamonds of his family jewels. There were no better loved grandchildren on this earth. As a friend, he was always there when called upon to help anyone of his hundreds of friends. No task to large, no request to small. If he was able to help you, you knew you could count on him. In addition to the above mentioned qualities he was also a police officer for the LA DOTD for 38 years; a job he dearly loved and excelled at. He was famous for his delicious fried catfish and Mexican cornbread. He entertained a whole host of friends and family for many,many years in his infamous outdoor kitchen; all those in attendance were treated like royalty when at Charlie's house. To sum things up, Charlie Moore was a man you could not help but love once you met him! I bid you farewell my sweet loving Daddy, I wait for the day when we shall meet again.
