Alan Geoffrey Moore, the middle child of Ivor and Nancy Moore, was born on the 1st April 1959 in Odstock Hospital. He passed away on the 16th January 2021 at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon.
Alan is survived by his son Luke, mum Nancy, elder brother Peter and younger sister Jenny.
Alan grew up in the countryside in Wilsford. He attended firstly Wilsford CofE school and latterly Rushall CofE school. At age 11 yrs Alan passed the 11plus exam and so went on to attend Devizes school. He excelled at technical drawing and mathematics which would prove to be useful for his future career as an electrical engineer. He also enjoyed participating in sports - rugby and squash, as well as volleyball, where he would meet the love of his life, Lisa Hopgood.
On leaving school Alan completed an electrical apprenticeship at T H Whites and after consolidating his knowledge and skills became self employed with Morelec. The company today is Devizes Control Systems (DCS). Al loved his work, was highly skilled at it and developed many warm friendships with his customers.
When Alan’s childhood sweetheart Lisa was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2018, he bought their dream family home in Coate which he adapted both to meet Lisa’s needs, and to provide a lovely environment for the three of them, Lisa, Alan and Luke, to enjoy with family and friends both indoors and out. Al was an enormously sociable guy with a large circle of very good friends who brought him much comfort during difficult times. Al cared for Lisa until her sad and sudden death in June 2020.
Alan will always be remembered for his kindness and generosity towards others, his laid-back nature and his smile, which came so easily. Alan will be missed by many, as a composed boss, a colleague, a considerate friend and a truly devoted, loving family man and Dad to Luke – the apple of his eye - of whom he was so hugely proud.
In January 2021 Alan contracted coronavirus and was suddenly, tragically taken from us.
A private family service will be held at West Wiltshire Crematorium, Semington, on Wednesday 10th February at 13.45hrs. Family flowers only.
Due to coronavirus restrictions we have been unable to invite the many more people who loved Al to formally say goodbye to him. If you wish to pay your respects, a procession will be passing the DCS Unit at Hopton Industrial Estate at 12.55 followed by a passing through Longcroft Road at 13.05.
When restrictions allow, and when it is safe for us to all be together again, we will hold a memorial celebration in recognition of Al’s happy disposition and the fun and joy, happiness and love he brought to all our lives.
