Oral “Olley” Tillman Moore, age 88, passed away on August 27, 2019, at Newtown Rehabilitation & Health Care Center. He was born September 27, 1930, in Slater, Mo., to Clyde and Anna (Krueger) Moore.

He proudly served in the United States Air Force during the Korean War, after which he worked in television and radio repair, before embarking on a long career at Perkin Elmer Corporation, where he retired as Maintenance Superintendent in 1990.

Olley was predeceased by his beloved wife of 60 years, Barbara Jean (Dutton) Moore.

He is survived by his sons and their wives, Richard (Kathy) Moore, Michael (Heidi) Moore, and Jeffrey (Wendy) Moore; and grandchildren, Shannon, Matthew, Todd, Sarah, Patrick, Justin, and Ian. He is also survived by six great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Olley loved traveling the country in his motor home as well as boating and fishing at his lakeside home in Dandridge, Tenn. He spent the last five years living at Maplewood in Newtown, where he enjoyed many close friendships with the residents and staff, and in particular his special friend Gloria Testa.

At a later date, a family service will be held in Oakfield, Maine.
