Moore was born in Kelly, West Yorkshire, on April 30, 1920, and completed his civil engineering training before enlisting in the Army during the early months of World War II. After being selected to train officers, he was promoted to captain while serving in India, Burma and Sumatra.
After leaving the Army in 1946, Moore began working for the family construction company. After this failure, he became a salesman and then a manager of building materials companies. When his concrete company was threatened with closure, Moore raised and bought a group of investors, creating 60 jobs.
Along the way, he divorces his first wife and falls in love with Pamela, the employer’s office manager. The couple married, had two daughters, and eventually retired to Spain, but returned to England after Pamela Moore fell ill.
After the death of his wife in 2006, Moore moved to the village of Bedfordshire in Marston Moretten to live with their youngest daughter Hannah and their family.
The former motorcycle rider lowered his speed to 98 after suffering a fall and a broken thigh in 2018. A pedestrian replaced his Skoda Yeti, but kept moving.
At a backyard barbecue in early April last year, the Moore family challenged him to walk along the 82-foot (25 m) trail. After reaching the end, his son-in-law encouraged him to continue, offering to pay £ 1 per round and suggesting a 100-round goal before Moore’s 100th birthday.
