Charles A. Moore was born on the outskirts of Houston, TX, to Willie and Ellen Moore on October 20, 1944. Charlie, as everyone knew him, spent his childhood fishing, exploring the nearby woods, and shooting his pellet gun like most local boys did at that time. He graduated from Furr High School with honors in 1963 and continued his education at the University of Houston, where he met his lovely wife, Sharon, and earned his Bachelor's of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Charlie enlisted in the Navy as a fighting Seabee with the 121st Marine Combat Fleet where he served one tour in Vietnam. Charlie continued his service to the country as an engineer with NASA at the Johnson Space Center, culminating in a 42-year career that included being an integral part of various space program projects and missions, including designing and fabricating parts for the Moon Rover and numerous Space Shuttle launches.
Around town, Charlie was known as a generous and kind man who was always willing to lend a hand. He would often take long walks with his wife to enjoy the peace and beauty of nature. An avid fisherman, he was known to grab his rod and reel at a moment's notice. He shared this joy for fishing with his family on many boating trips down the San Jacinto River and Trinity Bay. Charlie had a musical ear and could pick up a tune after hearing just a few notes, and with his granddaughters by his side, they would spend time creating and singing impromptu songs. He had a knack for cooking and, on occasion, would surprise his family with his culinary delights.

Charlie is survived by his wife, Sharon of Crosby; son and daughter-in-law, Heath and Ivana and granddaughters, Marta and Emma of Sugar Land; daughter and son-in-law, Heather and Daniel of Brunswick, GA. He was preceded in death by his parents and Brother, David.

The family would like to thank everyone for their support, love and prayers. In lieu of any gifts or flowers, please consider giving to your charity of choice in memory of Charles.
