Arthur James Moore March 12, 1929 - April 22, 2014 Passing peacefully at the Windemere Care Centre, Arthur was a machinist, labour activist, keen political observer, avid reader and writer, and beloved father and grandfather. Arthur was predeceased by his wife of 57 years, Joan (née Witney) and brothers Joseph, David and Walter. He is survived by son Charles (Anna Cooper) and grandsons Tobias and Ronan of Vancouver. Arthur was born in London, witnessed the Blitz, and served in the Royal Navy during the Korean War. He arrived in Canada in 1955, on a trip working 'around the world' which ended (happily) in Vancouver with marriage. With Joan, Arthur fought for the creation of Medicare in Saskatchewan, served as IAMAW Local president with a strike mandate in Vancouver, and was active in the nuclear disarmament and peace movements of the 1980's and 1990's. Fondly remembered as a story-teller and humourist, Arthur's life will be celebrated at a private residence, 1349 E. 2 Ave. Vancouver, May 10 at 3 pm.
