Obituary of Brian Douglas Moore
It is with broken hearts that the family of Brian Douglas Moore, loving husband of Susan Moore, announce his passing on February 4, 2020 at Bobby’s Hospice. Born on April 15, 1953 in Quebec City, Quebec, he was a son of the late William and Evelyn (Bunker) Moore.
Brian, a Fredericton native, established his company, Fundy Fencing Limited, in 1979.

Brian was President of the Cliff Club, Vice-Chairman of the YMCA Endowment Board and the Chair of the Miramichi Salmon Association. Brian was also instrumental in raising funds to build the new Regional YMCA. One of Brian’s proudest achievements was writing a book dedicated to his great-great grandfather, Samuel J. Moore, titled “Printer’s Devil” which became published.
