An Appreciation: William Bowditch ‘Bill’ Moore
A lifetime — that’s how long I have known Bill Moore. Much of that time was in Virginia, where we moved in 1974, but a big part of it was up here in Salisbury.
Before they married, his wife, Sheila, introduced him to Mt. Riga. All of us Raggies are richer for it. After renting for many years, they built a camp on the Upper Lake for their 4 children and 10 grandchildren. It is a place of welcome. He played a mean game of tennis and a meaner one of bridge. And those dogs — he walked them everywhere. He supported the Scoville Library with its computers, the Lakeville Journal with his weekly subscription, the Northwest Music Association and its Baroque Soloists where he served on its Board. He will be sorely missed by his many friends on the mountain and down off who found him the most equitable of men.
