HOLLIS- Barry Pepperrell Moores, age 75, of Hollis Road, passed away on February 11, 2013 at the Maine Medical Center in Portland.
He was born in Farmington, Maine on June 13, 1937, elder son of the late Rev. G. Duncan Moores and Velma A. (Bray) Moores.
Barry graduated from Cony High School in Augusta and later graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from Bates College in 1958.
He was deeply patriotic and proudly served his country by enlisting in the Army National Guard.
For 38.5 years, Barry worked for S. D. Warren Paper Company in Westbrook. At the time of his retirement, he was the Manager of Research and Development Administration, taking great pride in his work and in his staff. He was instrumental in setting up a formal college recruiting program and an R & D Apprentice program to expose new hires to all aspects of the business. He is fondly remembered for the witty humor he brought to the workplace. Each year, he crafted his infamous "Holiday Newsletter," full of humor yet showing appreciation for each staff member individually, and each year he treated his staff to a special holiday luncheon.
Barry was an avid sports enthusiast. He enjoyed playing softball and was an excellent handball player. He also enjoyed following politics, reading about investments and finance, reading automotive periodicals, and keeping sports-related and financial statistics. Dogs were always an important part of his life. However, it was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, that was most special to him.
He is survived by his beloved wife - Loretta M. Moores; son - Dr. John D. Moores, daughter-in-law Joelle, and two granddaughters of Groton, MA; brother - Dr. Brian W. Moores (Connie) of Doswell, VA.

A memorial service will be held in the spring for family and close friends.
Arrangements are with Dennett, Craig & Pate Funeral Home- Buxton
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Barry's memory to the American Heart Association, 51 US Rt. 1, Scarborough, Maine 04074.
