Bob was a certified public accountant and a founding partner of the Moore and Simonin, P.C. accounting firm. He was a longtime member of the Rotary Club and once served as its president. For many years he was active in the Illinois CPA Society and the Southern Illinois chapter. He took his athleticism to another level when he took up golf. He enjoyed his days of playing golf with the men’s club at Clinton Hill and later joining St. Clair Country Club. In his later years, he found perhaps his happiest times serving as Poppy to Lydia, Trixie Lu and Henry.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William M. and Isabella, nee Fesler, Moore; and a brother-in-law, Charley Pauli.
Surviving are his wife of nearly 56 years, Marla Kay, nee Pratt, Moore, whom he married on August 8, 1964;
