In Memory of Gregory Russell Moore
It is with heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to Greg Moore (aka Penguin or Guin for short). Beloved husband of Danette, enthusiastic step-dad to Sadie, loving doggie grampa to Violet. He was also a good son, brother, uncle and friend. Greg fought hard to beat the cancer that snuck up on him in early 2021. Sadly, he lost that battle Saturday, November 12, 2022, at home, surrounded by some of the most important people in his life.
Greg loved his family and friends fiercely and openly. Sometimes a grizzly bear, he was soft, wonderful and perfectly mushy on the inside. Greg loved the outdoors – golfing, camping and canoeing. He loved animals and sports. He loved the challenge of building and fixing things. He loved to plan trips – big and small. He would spend hours to find special and unique places to visit or stay. He made lists of wacky roadside attractions to see along the way. He and Danette enjoyed many trips around Ontario and all over Canada.
Mostly, he was a wonderful husband, friend and step dad. He was Sadie’s #1 fan. He supported her at all events but especially loved watching her play Ringette and school hockey. Greg has an amazing group of life long friends. They had many adventures (and mis-adventures..) together. There were always lots of stories to tell- mostly full of laughs but some tears. They are endlessly devoted to him and each other.
To the end, Greg was protective and more concerned with everyone else than himself. He has left an enormous hole in our lives but we are so grateful to have known him. Special thank you to all the staff at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus. The care was always impeccable. By request, Greg will be cremated. There will be a private Celebration of his life. Donations can be made in his honour to the Ottawa Hospital General Campus if desired.
