Charles “Chuck” Hugh Moore, 89, a resident of the Beaverton community, passed away on May 8, 2024 at the Cedar Crest Memory Care in Tigard.

Chuck was born on May 26, 1934 in Forest Grove, OR. He was the oldest of eight children born to James and Frances (Murphy) Moore. He was raised in the Banks area and attended St Francis Catholic Grade School and then graduated from Verboort High School with the Class of 1952. Chuck then attended Pacific University in Forest Grove where he attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Teaching in 1960. He later went on and received a Master’s Degree at the Oregon School of Education in 1968.

He met his future wife, Darlene Boogaard, through her brother Jim. They soon began dating and they married on June 23, 1962 in Verboort, OR. They made their home in Aloha until they moved to “the Farm” in 1975.

Chuck was primarily a sixth-grade teacher for the Beaverton School District. He taught at several elementary schools, including Barnes, Sunset Valley, Bethany, William Walker, and Hazeldale. He loved the outdoor school program, where he created some of his fondest memories while teaching.

He loved socializing with his family and friends, and almost anyone he met. He enjoyed being and working on the farm. He would hire out his tractor for cultivating and grading. He enjoyed fishing and golfing, and mostly collecting golf balls that came onto the property from the nearby course. He was an excellent dancer. Darlene and Chuck enjoyed dancing in many forms, including ballroom, square, and round dancing. Darlene, Chuck and their children enjoyed camping, visiting Oregon State and other parks up and down the west coast, like Detroit Lake, Honeyman, and Suttle Lake. Chuck liked to tinker and this passion was multiplied when he built his “Shop” on the farm. He collected owls, which he loved as a sign of wisdom, and eagles, frequently using Eagle as an outdoor school camp name. He sold Amsoil products on the side for many years, turning it into a business after retiring from teaching.

He is preceded in death by his parents, a son-in-law Michael Bailey, siblings, Robert and George Allen Moore, and a brother-in-law, Arthur “Bill” Juenemann.

He is survived by his loving wife, Darlene, four children and their spouses, Lauri Leonetti of Tigard, Shari Bailey of Tigard, Greg and Kathy Moore of SE Portland, Daric Moore and his wife Katrina Godderz both of McMinnville, and a foster granddaughter, Trish Moore Wilbur. Also surviving are five siblings, Teresa Juenemann, Jim Moore, John Moore, Margaret Shaw, and Rosemary Moore.
