Mr. Ned Grant Moore, 86, formerly of Clinton, passed away at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, just five days after his wife, Hideko died.
A Graveside Service with military honors will be held Wednesday, February 24th at 11:00 AM (at the same time as his wife's service) at the Clinton Cemetery with Rev. Charles Ray Jernigan officiating.
Born on December 1, 1934, Ned was the son of the late Ralph and Betty Gore Moore. He grew up in Sampson County, and was the youngest of four children. He retired from the United States Army Special Forces, receiving numerous medals and awards throughout his career. He was a dedicated and decorated soldier who was proud to be a Vietnam Veteran and loved his country. He adored his wife, Hideko and was a wonderful brother and uncle. “Uncle Ned” was a quiet man who enjoyed his solitude and quiet life, and enjoyed going to his mountain cabin for as long as he was able. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
Ned is survived by his sister, Ruth Edwards of Salisbury; two neices: Patsy Moore of Clinton and Betty Lou Echard of Salisbury; five nephews: Butch Williams of Carolina Beach, Steve Williams of Wilmington, Walt Moore of Portland, Oregon, Marion Moore of Clinton and Larry Edwards Salisbury.
In addition to his parents and wife, Hideko, he was preceded in death by a sister, Beatrice Williams and brother, Walter Chancey Moore.
