Eugene R. Moore

Carson City resident Eugene “Gene” Ralph Moore died on Aug. 26, 2007. He was 79.

Gene was born on Sept. 12, 1927, in Campbell, Calif., the son of Ralph & Eunice Moore. After a brief stint in the U.S. Army in 1946, Gene applied his ingenuity to several home-based businesses.

Gene loved his dog ChaCha, traveling around the United States in his travel trailer, Western novels, and horse racing. He was an avid sports fan. Gene had an independent spirit and kept his sense of humor throughout his life. “Uncle Gene” will be greatly missed by all of his family.

Gene is survived by his sisters, Edith DiLeonardo of Sunnyvale, Calif.; Wanda French of Mariposa, Calif.; brother-in-law, John A. Giannotta of Carson City, Nev.; nieces Sharon, Sandy, Susan and Shelley; nephews Rob, Ron and Jim, and numerous grand-and great-grand nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother, Eunice Hutton Moore, father, Ralph Moore, and sister, Helen Louise Moore Giannotta.

Special recognition to the “angels” who cared for Gene: Sandy, Jim, Shelley, John G., Rebel, Judy, Sharon, and Rick; Crystal and Susie for the long drive to bring “Uncle Gene” back to his family. He was an easy-going and uncomplaining patient in spite of his advanced illness.

Interment will be at the V.A. Cemetery in Fernley, Nev. At Gene’s request, no services will be held.
