Memorial Gifts & Donations

Coy Daniel Moore, age 70, of Wilmington, has joined his father, C.J. Moore, mother, Juanita Kelly Moore and his beloved brother, Barry Moore, in God’s heavenly kingdom, on December 30, 2021.

He was born in Wilmington on April 25, 1951.

Coy worked for many years for General Electric as an Aircraft Inspector.

He is survived by his loving wife, Elizabeth “Lib” Moore; daughters, Tracy Moore Miller and Amy Moore Bacon and his son, Jason Coy Moore and three stepchildren, Christopher King, Lorna McWatty and Ronald McWatty. He is also survived by nine grandchildren, two of whom he was a father figure for, Gage Miller and Logan Miller.

There are not enough words to convey how loved Coy was by his family, friends and all who came to know him. Coy had a wonderful way of endearing himself to others by his willingness to be there for them in good-times and bad. Coy enjoyed spending time with his family and fishing, fishing and more fishing, if there was a lake, pond or river around, Coy could find a fish in it, a skill he enjoyed teaching his children and grandchildren.

The family will receive friends at a Visitation to be held from 6:00 pm till 8:00 pm on Friday, January 7, 2022, at the Wilmington Chapel, 1535 S.41st Street, Wilmington, NC 28403.

    I always loved going to the River for our large family Thanksgivings. Coy was always the funniest, silliest, and sweetest man at the gathering. There was no way you could be around him without smiling. Sending love and condolences to Amy, Tracy and Jason and everyone else in the family. ❤️

    We enjoyed seeing Coy at the river. My kids loved him and we all had a great time. He was the kindest man and he had a great sense of humor. Anyone that ever met Coy will miss him. We will remember how happy he was in his man cave at the river.

    My sincere condolences to Lib , Jason, Tracy , Amy and to all of Coy's extended family.' I've known Coy since High School, and we worked together after that for GE over 37 years. Coy's life stories always included his love of his family, and especially his mom and dad . They too were very special people. Coy was just a lot of fun to be around. At work, but especially at play. Nobody could catch fish better than Coy, and he taught me many of his "secrets" over the years. At GE Coy was always the person that trained other employees. He always made learning a new skill easy, and was fun to work with. He told me one night while training me on a new job that I must have ate amnesia sandwiches at lunch, because he said I had forgotten all he taught me earlier!! Many good memories about Coy , but he should be remembered most for helping so many people. Coy was good man, and great friend. There will be many toasts to you my friend.
