Eddie Moore, Jr.,
On February 27, 2009 at Vaughan Regional Hospital, a quiet humble spirit was needed. God touched his humble servant, Eddie, to join the heavenly host. Eddie Moore, Jr., AKA Bauchie, the third child, first son, born to the Late Eddie Moore, Sr. and Mary Callens Moore on January 31, 1927. Preceding him in death, along with children, were Bobby James and Carolyn, and sisters, Lillie, Ida, Tommie, Maggie and brother, Henry.
Eddie confessed Christ as his personal savior at an early age and began his walk with Christ at Wayman Chapel AME Church where he served humbly, willingly, faithfully as Church Treasurer, Steward and Trustee until his final walk ended. He was a man of few words, touched and influenced many lives both family and friends through his strength, courage and soft smile. Eddie was employed at Stewart McKenzie Company as a truck driver, Southwind Cab Company, and Deluxe Cab, where he served as owner and entrepreneur until retirement.
