He also worked several years in Antioch, California for his son at Delta Bay Waterproofing. Frank had a very charismatic personality. He inherited the "Moore" family gift of talking. He was a jokester with a great ability to make others laugh. He was an avid storyteller and Frank sometimes suffered from fib-a-itis and told some real whopper stories. To family members, he was known as Sonny. To his special nieces and nephews, he was their favorite "Uncle Sonny". He could be a pain, he could be ornery, but most of all he was loved. He was preceded in death by his parents, Silas “Pete” and Sadie Moore; son, Geoffery Moore; siblings, Glen Moore, Jane Springer, and Judy Moore; and his best friend and brother-in-law, Shelby Springer. Frank is survived by his wife, Barbara Moore; children, David (Gina) Moore of Antioch, California, Brenda (Joe) Thielmann of Dowagiac, and Frank Moore II of Niles; eight grandchildren, Andy (Andy) Lezotte, Aaren (Brian) Finn, Alicia (Joseph) Kidd, Nathan (Sarah) Thielmann, Drake Moore, Hanna Moore, Cole Moore, and Damian "Buddy" Moore; nine great-grandchildren, Trace, West, Beau, Sunny, Dylen, Ethen, Rylei, Dawson, and Jaxon; and many extended family members and close friends.
