Samuel Hanna MOORE


Sam was born in Silver Creek, B.C. on the 4th of May, 1935, to William and Edith Moore. He passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on the 22nd of February 2011.

He was predeceased by four of his children: David, Melissa, Billy, and Shawna; his wife Margaret Ann “Peggy”, and sister Mildred.

Sam is survived by his best friend and partner Jennifer, his four children: Gary (Eleanor), Dawn (Kelly), Shirley (Randy), and Kim (Bert); his eight grandchildren: Ernie (Zoe), Eligh (Tera), Adam (Roslyn), Keena, Joey, Yvonne, Christopher, and Kain; also by his seven great-grandchildren: Krystal, Haylie, Reilly, Ben, Mike, Olive and Nate. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters: John, Melvin, Isabel, Margaret, Mary and their families.

In 1963 Sam and Peggy moved to the Cariboo. They lived in several places and eventually settled with their family on a ranch at Green Lake.

Sam was a logger, trucker, and rancher. In 1969 he took up the sport of pony chuck wagon racing. He had a life long passion for the sport and enjoyed all aspects of it. Sam also enjoyed being involved with the rodeo community including being a pick up man and raising bucking bulls. Sam eventually sold his ranch after the death of his wife Peggy in 2004. He moved to Lone Butte and then to Gateway where he continued to ranch and sell hay with Jennifer. Sam will be sadly missed by all those who knew him.
