Charles operated Moore’s Sanitation Service, starting with
his father as a teenager while in school as well as working in the
family cedar oil business in the summers. Charles graduated from
Northern Adirondack Central School in 1984 then went full time

his own computer business, easily earning an A+ rating as a
technician despite having little formal training in computers.
Charlie was a talented mechanic, maintaining not only the
business trucks and equipment, but also the personal vehicles of
many friends and relatives. Charles was a generous, giving man
and always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need.
Like his father, Charlie took pride in the family homestead
and enjoyed walking and working the land. He also inherited
many of his father’s qualities – he was outgoing, polite, full of fun

a meal.
