Gordon Edward Moore
It is with great sadness that the family of Gordon Edward Moore announce his sudden passing on Wednesday, April 20th, 2022. Ed was born in Moose Jaw, SK on April 1st, 1947 to Gordon and Muriel Moore. He was predeceased by his wife and his parents. Ed will be forever remembered by children, Joelle Moore and Michael Moore; grandson, Brody; and siblings, Cathy (Jerome) Engler and Lori Nixon. Ed also leaves behind extended family through his wife’s family, the Pragnell’s, and the Moore’s of Moose Jaw.
Ed was very involved in sports and he played hockey for the Moose Jaw Crusty Canucks for many years. He enjoyed the time he spent on the ice. Ed also coached football for the Elks Minor Football league and took the South Hill Roughriders to provincials a few times. He was also part of the coaching staff of the Riverview Royals football team. But Ed’s greatest love was for the sport of softball. He had a gift for teaching and coaching softball and he was great at it. His talent at this gave him a legacy in Moose Jaw and the respect and love of many softball players that he coached and trained throughout the years. He remembered them all and kept mementos of his time spent with them.
A Memorial Tea will be held on Friday, May 6th, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. in the Harvey Room at Moose Jaw Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ed’s name may be made to the Moose Jaw Senior Ladies Fastball League, 411 Stadacona St, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 0J7. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Todd Sjoberg, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
In this sad time, I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to your family.
Joelle my condolences on the passing of your dad. My heart goes out to your family.
My condolences to Eddie’s family and friends. I worked with him at the railway and played hockey with him. I always admired him for his dedication to safety. He was a great conductor and yard foremen.
My deepest sympathy to Eddie’s family, Eddie was a long time friend we grew up in the same neighbourhood, Eddie and I enjoyed coaching football, once in a lifetime one should be allowed to have a friend like Eddie
To all the family and friends my condolences. I knew ED as a youth growing up on South hill he was one of the coach’s for the South hill rough riders . And over the years I would see him at Fine Foods or at the bank. His daughter Joelle is my neighbor and I would often see him over there and his son Mike on his bike or out walking. He was a co worker of mt god father Floyd Tait who also worked for CPR.
Eddy was one of a kind. His curmudgeon exterior covered a heart of gold. As a coach, he gave his all to his players. As a friend, he gave unfaltering support. Noreen and I wish to pass along our sincere condolences to his family. I know you feel sad, but know that he is reunited with the love of his life. Rest in Peace, my friend.
Mike and Joelle, I’m so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was a stellar member of the community for so many years! I’ve known him for as long as I can remember…Crusty Canuck’s games and parties are my earliest memories of him and then he coached my fastball team for many years. He taught me so much about the game and especially pitching. Over the years he and I ran pitching clinics together even! He was a great teacher and a wonderful friend. He will be fondly remembered by so many in the fastball community as well as his hockey teammates for sure. May your memories soothe your heart.
I am saddened to learn of Eddie’s passing. He was a dedicated family man. There will be a void in the Moose Jaw sports community as he freely gave his time to all aspects of sports, playing, coaching and building. I never knew of Eddie not having a project on the go and a pocket novel by his side. A patron of the Palliser Library. RIP Eddie, you will be missed.
My condolences to the family and friends of Eddie…truly enjoyed working with him….he was one of a kind in his coaching abilities……rest in peace Eddie, Rest In Peace……
Joelle and Mike we were saddens to hear of your Dads passing. Our deep condolences to you and your families
My sincere condolences to Eddie’s family. I met Eddie through his service on the Moose Jaw Public Library Board. Eddie served for more than 14 years, many of those years as Chairman. His skill at chairing meetings was stellar. He will be missed.
Please accept my condolences at Ed’s passing. Having coached with Ed on the Riverview Royals I enjoyed his leadership and friendship that developed through time. I will miss his crusty, but outgoing exterior, sideways smile and laughter when we crossed paths in recent years. He will be missed by all who knew him…May he Rest In Peace…
We will have a toast to Eddie and share stories from the youthful days the next time we get together out here in Vancouver. Eddie went to school with us from elementary right through high school. We are South Hill and Airbase friends of Eddie. Our thoughts are with Eddie’s family.
