WHEELERSBURG-Richard Wayne Moore was born on March 2, 1963 to Jesse and Mary Moore in Portsmouth, Ohio. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on August 19, 2023.
Richard grew up in Wheelersburg, OH and graduated from South Webster High School in 1981. He left home shortly after to serve in the Army for three years.

One of Richard’s greatest qualities was sharing his love for hunting, fishing and the outdoors with his boys. He was a fun; hardworking family man and they learned a lot from their dad.
