Oswaldo Moore Jr.

Oswaldo passed away peacefully , Monday, January 25, 2021 at St. Catherine Hospital, East Chicago.

He is survived by his loving wife of 23 years Irene and his son Pablo V. Moore, bonus children Raquel, Claudia, and Nicolas Garcia, 5 grandchildren Julian, Philip, Angel, Izaiah, and Camila, brothers Fernando (Anita) Moore of Murrieta, CA. Gerardo (Pat) Moore of Hesperia, CA. uncle Pablo (Hilda) Quesada of CA. He is preceded in death by parents Osvaldo and Concepcion Moore.

He was a resident of East Chicago. He retired from Inland Steel with 39 years of service. He was a member of the VFW and Emilio A. De la Garza Jr American Legion Post 508. He served proudly in the U.S. Navy as a medic during the Vietnam War.

Ozzie was an avid Notre Dame football fan and enjoyed watching his “boys” play. He loved watching old westerns, photography, woodworking, especially making grandfather clocks, and listening to oldies.

He was a family man and always put his family first. He was loving, kind, and caring. He lived his life to the fullest, always appreciating the “little” things in life. His absence has left a void in our hearts that can never be filled. Until we are reunited, we will love him and miss him all the days of our lives.

Until We Meet Again

Those special memories of you will always bring a smile

If only I could have you back for just a little while

Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do

You always meant so very much and always will too

The fact that you’re no longer here will always cause me pain

But you’re forever in my heart until we meet again!

A private cremation was held at Acevez Funeral Home.
