George William "Bill" Moore Jr.

Farmington, AR, 1939 - 2023

George William "Bill" Moore, Jr., age 83, a resident of Farmington, Ark., passed away Thursday, March 17, 2023, at Willard Walker Hospice Home in Fayetteville, Ark. He was born June 21,1939, Fayetteville, Ark., the son of George William and Neda (Heckathorn) Moore.
Dad was a member of Main Street Baptist in Farmington, and loved his church and all the people. He was a Veteran of the U.S. Army and was so proud of this country! He loved the city and community and was the first to say "where can I help!" Dad loved the glass shop he owned for more years, more than we can count, and stayed active making stained glass. He gave angels and stained-glass crosses to people across the country and some even out of the country. Dad had a knack for keeping everything "because you might need it someday". He loved his family, especially his grandkids. They ALL had a special place in his heart. He loved his kids too. We are so very lucky to have such a kind, gentle man, who was the perfect example of how to be a dad. But the one person he loved more than anyone or anything, was mom, and now they are once again joined in their heavenly home, celebrating with Jesus and those family and friends who have left us.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Berthalene; two sisters: Cathy (Moore) Denham and Ann (Moore) Hart; four brothers -in-law: LeRoy Jones, Ray Dean Jones, J.C.
