    We regret to advise of the death of William Harold Moore, CD, peacefully, in Ottawa ON at the Embassy West Hospice on 11 December 2016 in his 85th year.

    Born in a Port Elmsley, ON farmhouse, he grew up there before moving to nearby Richmond. Bill served with the Royal Canadian Engineers (1954-1967) in Chilliwack, BC and, Werl, Germany.  

    After his release from the Canadian Army Harold worked as a property manager for Effort Trust, a company out of Hamilton.  Bill is best known for his volunteer work in Ottawa as a champion for the cause of cystic fibrosis.  He got involved with the 65 Roses Sports Club in 1985 and became 65 Roses president in 1992. He served in that capacity until recent years and was often introduced as “President for Life.”

    Among his other community charities Harold worked with the Ottawa Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs, holding monthly luncheons for mentally challenged individuals. He also worked with the Kingston, ON and Ottawa branches of the United Nations Association in Canada.

    A Celebration of Harold's life and shared memories will be held Saturday 17 December 2016 from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm with eulogies at 7:30 pm, at The Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 638, 70 Hines Rd. Kanata, ON. As expressions of sympathy, donations to 65 Roses Sports Club/Cystic Fibrosis or a charity close to your heart would be appreciated. On-line Condolences may be sent to the Hulse, Playfair & McGarry Funeral Home.  {khDec2016}
