Frederick S. Moon Obituary
Frederick Seymour Moon passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at age 99 years at Life Care Center of Plymouth. Born in Plymouth on May 31, 1918 and educated in the Plymouth Schools. He was the devoted husband of the late Helen Mae (Swift) Moon. He was the son of the late Frederick and Aldyth (Hadaway) Moon and brother to the late George Moon. Beloved father of Mary-Ellen Guidaboni and Nancy Radcliffe and her husband Stephen all of Plymouth, and the late Louise Strickland of Berkley. He was blessed with eight grandchildren and eight great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, dear friends and caring neighbors. Fred lived his entire life in Plymouth on River Street in Chiltonville. The close-knit community and land was very dear to his heart. Living on the banks of the Eel River gave him so much pleasure watching all the wildlife and in his younger years enjoying the water activities; skating, ice fishing, row boat rides and leisurely canoeing with his wife or grandchild up river. He loved all animals and birds and always had a natural way of respect and trust that animals sensed and they were drawn to him. He was the happiest outdoors whether working in the yard, his garden, cranberry bogs, enjoying a bike ride or hunting with his dogs. He was also on a bowling team for many years, played cards with his friends and watched the Red Sox games on television. He was an avid reader, especially WWII history books. During WWII, he proudly served his country in the US Arm Air Corp. as a Tail Gunner in B17 and B24 planes in Europe. During his childhood he often helped his father and uncle at the Hornblower Estate and developed excellent handyman skills; painting, wallpapering, carpentry, etc. He would also assist the Hornblower veterinarian with all the barn animals Of all the jobs he had in his youth, his favorite was chauffeur to the late Mrs. Puritan and Doctor Nellie (first woman doctor of Plymouth). He was very fond of them both and they treated him very well. Also, he was a volunteer Chiltonville call man and along with his Chiltonville friends raised money by burning grass to purchase an old telephone truck to convert into the first Chiltonville fire truck. Edes Mrg. Co. hired Fred May 1941 and years later sold the company to Revere Copper and Brass where he continued to work until his retirement.
