Hugh W. Moore
June 6, 1935 ~ August 7, 2014
Hugh W. Moore, 79, passed away peacefully August 7, 2014, surrounded by family and friends in Wenatchee, WA. Born in Seattle, WA on June 6, 1935, Hugh grew up on Capitol Hill and attended St. Pat’s, St. Joe’s, and Seattle Prep, before graduating from Garfield High School in 1953. He was a sports fanatic. He loved the Seahawks, Mariners, and Huskies and was an epic story teller. He loved to tell jokes, often times the same joke multiple times. He always had a smile on his face and you always knew he was in the room. Hugh was a sales representative for Safeco Insurance for 18 years before moving to Winthrop, WA in 1972, where he owned and operated Sam’s Place Restaurant and Bar until his retirement. Following his retirement, he and his wife Jan split time between Wenatchee and Maui, so they could be close to their daughter, Lori. Jan passed away in 2011. He was a dedicated Starbuck’s customer, where he met his buddies every morning. Many of them came to see him in his final days. He was a car buff and treasured his 1975 Corvette.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Janet Moore; son, Craig Moore; and daughter, Renee Moore. He is survived by his wonderful daughter, Lori Jan Moore of Lahaina, HI; his sisters, Lynn Olson of Chelan, WA and Barbara Petzold of Lake Sammamish; his brother, Michael Moore (Marnell) of Manhattan Beach, CA; five grandchildren, Cory Moore and Jason Moore of Mansfield, WA., Kayla Hipol of Maple Valley, WA, Jessica Moore of Twisp, WA, and Tihani Moore of Lahaina, HI. He is also survived by five great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
