HARRISVILLE, NY/LAKE BONAPARTE ~ Terrence E. Moore, 73, died peacefully in the presence of his family on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at his East Shore Hermitage Road home at Lake Bonaparte in Harrisville.

Born October 6, 1945, in Skowhegan, Maine, the oldest child of Elwood and Evelyn (Scott) Moore, he was a 1963 graduate of Skowhegan High School, and a 1967 graduate of Farmington College in Farmington Maine, from where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree majoring in Mathematics.

He married Lynda Bartos on June 11, 1966 in Skowhegan.  Lynda, his wife of 42 years, died on December 8, 2007.   

Following his graduation from college Terry taught in Skowhegan for a short time before accepting a position in 1968 as a Math Teacher at Lowville Free Academy in Lowville, NY.  While there, he also attended part time at Colgate University where he obtained 30 credit hours toward his teacher certification. He eventually became the head of Lowville Academy’s Math Department where he taught continuously until his retirement in 2001 after 33 years of service. Throughout his years as a teacher in Lowville, he and his family had resided in Lowville, Castorland, Croghan, and Lake Bonaparte.

He married Beverly N. Buckingham on August 6, 2011 in St. Stephen’s Church, Croghan.

He was a member of the NYS Teachers Association, Lowville and Carthage Elks, Pine Pond Hunting Club in Tupper Lake, and White Birch Hunting Club in Croghan.

Over the course of his life, he enjoyed shooting trap, hunting, and loved boating and being an avid fisherman, particularly on Lake Bonaparte and in many trout ponds in Maine.  Terry will especially be remembered for his unique story-telling abilities, attention to detail, being a passionate New York Giants fan, following any of Syracuse University sports, and above all, for his unwavering love for his family.

Surviving are his loving family, including his wife, Beverly; four sons, Stephen T. and wife, Michele Moore, of Castorland, NY, Scott M. and wife, Susan Moore, of Pacific Grove, CA, Darren L. and wife, Wendy Moore, of Moravia, NY, and Derek A. Moore and companion, Kristin Vogt, of Copenhagen, NY; two step daughters, Sarah and husband Marc, Tornatore, of Reston, VA, and Megan Buckingham, of Albany, NY; eleven grandchildren and two step grandchildren; two sisters, Lisa and husband, Neil LeBlanc, of Madison, ME, and Nikki and husband, Ed Burgess, of Skowhegan, ME; brother-in-law Richard and wife, Beth Bartos, of Winchester, NH, and sister-in-law, Linda Moore, of Winslow, Maine.

He was predeceased by his brother, Elwood “Chip” Moore.

Terry’s funeral service will be held on Tuesday, July 2, 2019, at 10:30 a.m. at Scanlon Funeral Home in Croghan, with Nate Zehr and Tom Yousey, officiating. Burial will follow in Harrisville Community Cemetery in Harrisville.
