Bro. Charles Edward Moore, Sr. (68) of Hartford, CT departed this life on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at St. Francis Hospital.  He was born September 10, 1946 in Blackstock, SC to the late Willie Alfonso Moore and Elizabeth Brown.  He was a retiree of Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, East Hartford, CT where he worked for 43 years.  He also retired from Dattco Bus Company after working 25 years.


Bro. Moore, aka “Shorty” to those who knew him well, had a contagious smile which matched his easy going personality. He was probably thought of as a quiet soul but his actions and willingness to help do any task, spoke loud volumes of how he made others feel. Bro. Moore was baptized in Jesus’ name and filled with the Holy Ghost at Christ Church of Deliverance.  He assisted in the kitchen when the Brotherhood was in charge; helped the young people during a convention non-stop on the grills, was a Brotherhood choir Director and Singer. He also took lessons to play the guitar and was a mean

Horse-shoe player.  He loved planting his vegetable garden, fishing (frying and eating), driving the school bus which gave him much respect in the community and even was good at roller-skating. He received his H.S. diploma later in life as an important example to his children. His wife, Bert was truly his soul-mate. Their love was visible, fun and a great example to his family.


He leaves to cherish his memory a devoted, loving and caring wife of 50 years, Alberta Moore; his children Charles E. Moore II (Jessie), Walter Daniel, Jr. (Cheryl), Beverly Wilkerson, Mary Green (Orlando), David Daniel (Tina), Anthony Daniel (Jennifer) and Denise Parkman; his grandchildren Charles E. Moore III, Melody Daniel, Alfonso Wilkerson II, Arien Wilkerson, Joshua Daniel, Alberta Daniel, Nathaniel Daniel, Jazmine Daniel, Justin Daniel, Destiny Daniel, Cherrette Daniel, Antoinette Daniel, Deshaun Parkman and Shanowa Parkman; great grandchildren, Paul Jr., Trevon Daniel, Nayani Daniel, Avery Daniel, Eli Daniel, Julianna Daniel, Tre’vone Gay, Willie Gay III, Deshaun Parkman, Jr., Tayshawn Parkman, Darien Hodges, III, Miyehell Hodges, and Aaliyah Hodges; a god-son Gregory Hilson, Jr.; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, friends and a church family who loved him dearly. The wake will be held at Christ Church of Deliverance, 159 Blue Hills Ave., Hartford, CT on Friday, June 19th from 5:00-7:00 p.m. with funeral services following immediately at 7:00 p.m. Burial will be Saturday, June 20, 10 a.m. in Mountain View Cemetery, Bloomfield, CT.

                                            Charles (Shorty) will be sorely missed by all!
