Mickey was born in Woodhall, NY on January 31, 1936, the son of the late Wallace Edwin Moore and Leola Marlatt Moore. He lived his school-aged years in Bath, NY where in 1958 he met and married the woman of his dreams, Nancy (Wheaton) Moore. They enjoyed 58 happy years together until Nancy's passing in 2016. He was proud of their marriage and their accomplishments together over those wonderful years.
He and Nancy were owners of Nancy's Fabric Shop and later Mickey's Sew & Vac for more than 25 years. They volunteered as EMTs at the Bath Volunteer Ambulance Corp for 12 years.

Mickey received great joy from his loving grandchildren and his beloved pup, Maggie!
