Robert Nixon Moore. Husband. Father. Grandfather. Friend. Bob passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on February 28, 2023. He lived 83 years and impacted everyone he touched.

Bob and Vonnie moved to Washington in 1969 and to Gig Harbor in 2000. There was nothing that he cherished more than being with family and he raised four children, whom he was proud of and who were all very proud of him. Survived by Vonnie (wife of 60 years), children David, Stephen, Kathryn (Miller), Brian, and five grandchildren. He was our rock. He was loved dearly and will be forever missed.
