Calvin C. Moon

August 28, 1926 ~ September 18, 2013

Calvin died peacefully September 18, 2013 at Highline in East Wenatchee. He was born August 28, 1926, to Richard and Lena Moon in Pernell, OK and at the age of 17, he hitchhiked from Oklahoma to Manson, WA, where he stayed and drove the school bus, worked in the orchards and met his “to be” wife, Doris Stanford. They lived in Manson until 1954, when they moved the family to Wenatchee, settling in Malaga, where they have lived since, with their four children. Calvin worked at the Wenatchee Daily World and then on to the Seattle Times as a Country Circulation Manager. After retiring, he had a small engine repair shop at his home in Malaga. Calvin was an avid horseman and was a member of the Chelan County Sheriff’s Posse and his family was involved in Appleatchee. He was also a member of the Malaga Volunteer Fire Department and lifetime member of the Eagles.

Calvin is preceded in death by his parents; four brothers and three sisters; also taken early was his son, Duane Moon. He is leaving his wife of 67 years, Doris; two sons, Gene of East Wenatchee and Lonnie (Carole) of Puyallup; one daughter, Karen (Dale) of Ritzville; 12 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of Calvin’s Life will begin at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday September 24, 2013 at Telford’s Chapel of the Valley Funeral Home, on Grant Road in East Wenatchee. Donations may be made to the Chelan County Fire District #1 Volunteers, P.O. Box 2106 Wenatchee, WA 98807.
