BANGOR – Gus Moore, 86, of Bangor died March 31, 2004, at a local hospital. He was born Feb. 2, 1918, in Milford, to Frank and Margaret (Connors) Moore. Gus worked for more than 30 years for Maine Central Railroad and 12 years at John Bapst High School. Gus’s life was sports. He was a charter member of the Eastern Maine Board of Basketball Officials and refereed for many years all over Maine. Gus spent 25 years involved in coaching and umpiring Little League Baseball. He and Bernie Rice coached the first Bangor West All Star team to win a state championship in 1961. The last 20 years Gus enjoyed watching University of Maine teams and was looking forward to the Frozen Four and the regional softball and baseball tournaments this May. Being a long time Yankee fan, Gus’s great sense of humor was aimed at his many Red Sox friends. Gus is survived by his devoted wife of 61 years, Dorothy; and was a dad never too tired to hit grounders or play catch with his two sons, Gary and Bruce; a sister, Pauline Smith of Belleair, Fla.; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by two brothers and sisters. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Saturday at Foley Funeral Service, 299 Union St., Bangor, with the Rev. Rudolph Leveille officiating. Interment will be in Mount Hope Cemetery. Gus’s family wants to acknowledge the “angels” of the sixth floor oncology unit at EMMC for their care and friendship and also Dr. James Riley, Dr. Ali Khavari and Dr. Michael Gilmore. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes contributions be made to EMMC Oncology 6th Floor, care of Eastern Maine Charities, P.O. Box 404, Bangor, ME 04402-0404.
