Willis Monroe Moore



Willis Monroe Moore, 69, of Atkinson and formerly the Canetuck community passed gently from his earthly life on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at his home surrounded with love by family and friends.

He was born July 5, 1948 in Pender County, the son of the late Roscoe Earl and Allene Flynn Moore. Also remembered are his brothers, Roscoe Moore, Freddy Moore and Kenneth Moore; and sister, Kathryn Parker, all who preceded Willis in death.

Moore (Myrtie) and Robert Moore (Sheila); sisters, Merla Jackson, Jane Deal (Buddy), Brenda Miller, and Glenda Dennis; sister-in-law, Katie Moore; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Willis was a member of Canetuck Baptist Church.

Willis was a true family man and a quiet spoken Southern gentleman. Always had a bountiful vegetable garden that he and Anita tended together and generously shared with others. Willis enjoyed his game cameras as well as photographing wildlife. Being an excellent cook, Willis was often the chef in their home. He was a sharing, caring man and helped Anita care for Anita’s mother in their home for several years. The fondest of memories of Willis will remain in our hearts.
