Basil John Moore

September 9, 1930 — August 20, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce that our beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather passed away August 20th, 2023 just shy of his 93rd birthday.

Basil was born on September 9, 1930 in Riversdale, Ontario and grew up in Walkerton area. He married the love of his life, Grace Sitler in October 1955. They later moved to Alberta in 1982 and had resided there ever since. Basil liked to camp, play solitaire, and always had a joke for anyone who would listen.

Basil was predeceased by his wife of 66 years, Grace. He is survived by his loving daughters, Cynthia Statton, and Wendy (Roger) Brien; his grandchildren, Renee (Pete Szabo) Moore and Robert (Sarah) Statton; his great grandchildren, Jonathon and Kayla Naismith and Vincent, Ashlyn, Gwendolyn, Nikolai and Callum Hondl-Statton. Basil is also survived by his sister-in-law, Wilma Moore; along with nieces and nephews in both Alberta and Ontario. Basil was predeceased by his wife of 66 years, Grace; his mother, Cecilia Nesbitt; brothers, Doug Moore and Delbert Nesbitt; and his sister, May Petteplace.

A Graveside Burial and Celebration of Life will be held on September 9th, 2023 at 1 pm. Please send email to

He is finally at peace, and we thought it appropriated to let him physically leave this world on the same day he came into this world.
