Desco and I would like to include Keith Moore in our remembrance forum. Without Keith and some others, I could not have had a productive hobby with these old bikes. He stuck to it when practically no one else cared anymore. In the 80's essentially no one wanted these bike anymore except a few of us diehards.
I relied heavily on his knowledge and experience and I can't tell you how lost I felt when he suddenly passed away.
Here's his Obit.
Moore, Keith, of Placentia, passed away on April 17, 2012 of a sudden heart attack at his store. He was the owner of Moore's Cycle Center in Anaheim, CA and had been in the motorcycle business for 30 years. He was born June 13, 1941 in Sewickey, PA, and was the son of the late Hayes Moore and Anna Moore Specht.
He is survived by his wife, Delores; daughter, Marcy (Armando) Toner; son, Casey Moore; grandson, Anthony (Jennifer) Toner; and 2 great grandchildren, Alyssa and Alexis. Also survived by sister, Patricia (Earl) Nelson of Palm Beach Gardens, FL; brother, Lee (Barbara) Moore of Monaca, PA; and 3 nephews and their families.
Keith was a devoted husband and father, and was highly respected by all his "British motorcycle-(Triumph-BSA)" friends and customers all over the world. He was loved by all and will be greatly missed.
A viewing and service will be held Sat., April 28 at McAulay & Wallace Mortuary, 902 N. Harbor Blvd., Fullerton, CA at 11:00 a.m. Interment to follow at Loma Vista Memorial Park. Happy riding in the sky, Keith.
