“Due to COVID, the family is limiting the attendance to close family and friends, but the service will be live streamed  via the link below.  
They continue to welcome and thank you for your prayers.”

Mr. Richard Bernard Moore was born on May 7, 1926 in Alamance County North Carolina to Mr. Bennie Baxter Moore and Mrs. Mamie Olivia Oliver Moore. This birth brought much joy and pride to the family and little did he know how much of an impact he would make upon his family for years to come. Richard was educated within the Alamance County school systems and graduated from Jordan Sellars High School with the class of 1943. Following his graduation he enlisted into the United States Navy and served courageously during the World War II conflict. Following his honorable discharge from the Navy, he attended North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. 

Richard was a Brick Mason by trade and was the owner and operator of R.B. Moore Masonry. It was through this trade that he was able to support not only his family but also cultivate many lasting relationships with coworkers and friends. While his profession afforded him the ability to build many beautiful edifices throughout Alamance County and the surrounding areas, he was instrumental in cultivating and building the foundations of many other fellow Brick Masons who were able to develop their own trades and become entrepreneurs in their own rights. 

Richard was a devoted provider for his family. He met the love of his life Rosa Price and for over 66 years they shared a lasting love until they were departed by his death. Their union was blessed with two wonderful children whom they adored and cherished, Roslyn and Richard, II better known as Pete. Richard, Sr. was the foundation for his family and was instrumental in making sure that their needs were met. He adored and cherished his grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and it goes without mentioning that they had him wrapped around their fingers. He was a devoted member of Queens Chapel African Methodist Episcopal church for many years where he served as a Trustee and in several other capacities.  Richard, Sr. also was a devoted contributor to St. Matthews African Methodist Episcopal Church as well. Civically, he was a charter member of the Jack O'Kelly Sertoma Club and was a fraternal mason.  Richard, Sr. had a wonderful sense of humor and a loving heart, he will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. 

Those left to cherish his memory and carry on his lasting legacy are his devoted and faithful wife Rosa P. Moore; children: Dr. Roslyn M. Crisp and Richard B. Moore, II and his wife Jacqueline: four grandchildren: Dr. H. Alexander Crisp and his wife Dr. Jennifer Crisp, Dr. Benjamin G. Crisp and his wife McKinley, Madison Price Moore and Riley Simone Moore; two great-grandchildren: Olivia Nicole Crisp and Norah Audrey Crisp; a brother: Douglas V. Moore, Sr. and his wife Virginia as well as a multitude of nieces, nephews other relatives and friends.  

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by siblings: Mildred Moore, Nathaniel Moore “Pond”, Bennie Boyd Moore, David M. Moore, Sr. “Teby”, Winford Moore, Sr. “Jimmy”, Reynolds V. Moore “Pie” and Wynell Olivia Moore Gaylord.
