My Story

PAUL CLARENCE MOORE

 

Pablo,  Daddy, Daddy Paul, Papa, Pops,

Gi-Gi

 

Born of Alexander Moore and Stella Watson

On  June 7, 1922 in Dean Pen, St. Mary.  He was the youngest of 10 children.

His relationship with God began as a child through his grandmother, mother and sisters.

His determination to succeed came very early in life as he was still in short pants when he started working at Rio Shirt Factory where his love of garment making began. After God and family, his passion was the business of garment manufacturing which he did with a tenacity, drive and perseverance we are in awe of to this day. There are fond memories of his days starting with his favourite Psalm Psalm 23, a testimony to his strong belief in God.

His unselfishness brought many into the fold whom he taught varying aspects of the business and who in turn went on to succeed in businesses of their own. Despite several setbacks and the disappointments they caused, there never seemed to be any thoughts of throwing in the towel but rather he sought guidance from God each time because his fight was not for himself but rather for his wife and children.  He was very protective of his family and worked tirelessly to provide for us traveling to Santo Domingo in his early life  and later to Canada.

As children Friday evenings were special as he would bring home hot bread from Bay Farm Road or freshly baked peanuts and later on Chinese food or KFC.

His only surviving sibling, his sister Grace remembers with fondness his visit to Santo Domingo where he took Maria who was 4 years old at the time. They made many friends and learnt Spanish.  She could not be here with us but her church in Santo Domingo had a service in his honor.

We are proud to call him father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. We are thankful for all his love.  We enjoyed his jokes, his love of old western movies and the classic singers like Frank Sinatra and big band leaders like Billy Vaughn, Tommy Dorsey and Glen Miller. His love for the music of that era led to his son, Roberto’s passion and love for the great old standards and him becoming a serious collector of great music. We ‘ve learnt from him about God, humility, hard work, determination, perseverance and dreaming big. His work ethics remained true to his beliefs that regardless of whether you were being paid $1 or $100 for a job, quality is never compromised.

That is the essence of our father Paul Moore and his legacy lives on in all of us.
