We only knew Robert Moore for a few years and in that short time we really enjoyed his friendship. My mother and he were hall mates at Lexington Rehab and Robert was always willing to help her. Delightful and Friendly he was a true gentleman.Dean Lannon and family.
Feeling deep sorry for the Wilson Moore family from Rodney K. and Barbara Jane Russell of Wadesboro & Lilesville, N.C., currently in Charlotte, NC. I attended Public School in Wadesboro with Wilson. Wilson, Bobby Jordan and Ben Honeycutt moved on in different directions while I was in the USAF & State college. The last time I saw him was at a high school reunion held at the Wadesboro Country Club and the Bed & Breakfast. Wilson will be missed by me, but I pray to see him again in Heaven someday.
I was a roommate with Wilson while we were in school in Charlotte. He was at Carolina Business College while I was at Kings. Business College. I ran into him here in Ricmond many years ago. I did not know he lived here. He was a great guy and a good friend in school.
Real sorry to learn of Wilson’s passing. I think of him often as he taught me a lot about photography and gave me great learning opportunities that I might never have experienced without him.
We lost contact with each other nearly 30 years ago.
