Anthony David Moore

1 February 1935 – 10 April 2020 - Age: 85 Years



Uncle Tony, you were a man of great depth, but quiet in many ways. I was amazed by your volumes of the African writer series you had on your book shelf on my early visits when I was s young boy, from Chinua Achebe to Wole Soyinka. You had such a depth of understanding of the African psyche, the Ghanaian psyche.In my later visits you gave perspective on a number of matters. And at one point you said to me, "PaaKwesi, it is ok for you to call me Tony, and not Uncle Tony".
I remember visiting your chalet at Ada and going on a ride in your motor boat. I remember your regimen of a sandwich and a glass of beer for lunch, but you never gained any weight. You choose to make Ghana your home and we embraced you and thanked you.
Auntie Sandra and Kabuki, I know words cannot take away the pain of the loss of a husband, a father.
Know that Uncle Tony lived a full life, and he will be forever etched in our memory. So, Uncle Tony till we see again in heaven, remind us to keep smiling and know that you are in a much better place, in fact a perfect place!
Your nephew,
PaaKwesi Taylor and family, Orlando, FL

Uncle Tony: A man of few but salient words. I most fondly remember and cherish his idiosyncratically progressive stance towards me in my youth — he was always open to engage my burgeoning opinions and treat me with the same accord as he would an adult. I am and will always be grateful to him for that.

All in all, the erudite man from Bath led a long and fruitful life. A bonafide self-thinker; he will forever be missed.

May his soul Rest in Peace.
