Dayton John Moore

December 3, 1936 ~ September 4, 2023 (age 86) 86 Years Old


   It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Dayton Moore on September 4, 2023 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB.  He was 86 years of age.

   Dayton was born in Scott, SK on December 3, 1936.  As a young man, he enlisted in the military where he proudly served his country for many years.  On May 26, 1978, Dayton married the love of his life, Leila Eileen McEachern.  That same year, the happy couple moved to the Crowsnest Pass, AB where they went on to raise a family and create lifelong friendships.

   Dayton had great interest in airplanes and trains, and he enjoyed working on cars.  He also loved travelling, going camping and fishing whenever he could, and was an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 19, Bellevue.  Dayton was a hardworking, loyal man who will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all who knew him.       

   Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his wife, Eileen Moore; his children, James (Margaret) Moore, Dean (Tammy) Moore, Faye Zamikousky and Kathleen Moore; his grandchildren, Penny, Allen, Rosemary, Shelly, Jesslyn, Austin, Robert, Ashley, Amanda, Ryan, Stephanie, Curtis, Amy, Tanya and Christine; twenty-one great-grandchildren; his sister, Esther; and special friends, Daisy and Tim Caron.

   He was predeceased by his parents, John and Margaret Moore; his sons, Robert Moore and Earl Moore; his grandchildren, Russell Polsfut, Dakota Soare and Terry Knorr; and his brothers, Clinton Moore, Donnie Dearing, Ronnie Dearing, George Dearing, Jerry Dearing and Kenny Dearing.

   A Private Family Gathering will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass SPCA (PO Box 725 Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).  Condolences may be registered at
