HERMON – Merwin “Moe” A. Moore, 74, passed away Sept. 25, 2012 with his wife and family by his side after a very long and courageous battle with cancer. He was born Aug. 16, 1938, in Merrill, son of Alton and Maxine (Clark) Moore.
Merwin grew up on the family farm in Merrill until the age of 10 when the family moved to Hermon. That is where he met and married the love of his life, Susan (Knowles) Moore. They have been married for 54 years. He enjoyed spending time at his camp in Aroostook County, four-wheeling, hunting, fishing and visiting with friends. Merwin loved to spend time with family and friends, but preferred to do it at his own home/camp, which is where he always wanted to be. He worked for Hannaford for 40 years, as a manager for the meat department and then in the seafood department. Merwin made many friends over the years while working there in both the employees and the customers.
He is survived by his wife, Susan of Hermon; daughter, Tina Urquhart and her husband, Kent, of Carmel; son, Timothy Moore and his wife, Stacia, of Hermon; daughter, Tracy Hall and her husband, Walter, of Hermon; mother, Maxine Moore; grandchildren, Felicity, Alex and Alton Urquhart, Tyler, Trevor, Shayla and Tanner Moore; beloved sister, Susan Magruder of Lentner, Mo.; several brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews. He was predeceased by his father; son, Alton; and brother-in-law, Richard Magruder.
