Stanley David Moore, 79, of Christiana, passed away on Tuesday, May 17th, 2022 at his home, surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Joan Chicklo Moore, with whom he shared 60 years of marriage.

Born in Wilmington, Delaware, he was the son of Edgar and Helen (Grodzicki) Moore.

Dave was a graduate of Salesianum High School in Wilmington, DE.  One of his first jobs was working at the Grand movie theatre where he met the love of his life, Joan.  He went on to work several other jobs and then started a long career for Sun Oil in Marcus Hook, PA, where he worked for 32 years.

He enjoyed traveling, especially to the White Mountains of New Hampshire with his wife and grandchildren.  He also loved gardening and was known for growing some of the best tomatoes around. He enjoyed watching NASCAR and golf, as well as playing baseball in his younger years. Dave was probably best known for his love of music, especially Elvis.

I will dearly miss my Poppop terribly, but will hold our memories close to my heart. I am sure he is looking down on us from heaven (enjoying a beer or a good glass of red wine and a steak). Love and prayers.
