Benjamin "Ben" Phillip Moore

Benjamin “Ben” Phillip Moore, 87, passed away unexpectedly on September 7, 2019 while at Penn Nursing Center. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM Tuesday September 10, 2019 at Wilkerson Funeral Home with Rev. Kevin Cochran officiating. Burial will follow at New Lebanon Christian Church cemetery with military honors performed by the Rockingham County Honor Guard. The family will receive friends at Wilkerson Funeral Home on Monday, September 9th from 6-8 PM and other times at the home. Ben was born November 26, 1931 in Rockingham County to the late Barnett Fleming Moore and Ione McCollum Moore. Ben was known for his dry wit and keen sense of humor. He loved spending time at Smith Mountain Lake fishing and boating with his family. He retired from Golden State Foods as a warehouse supervisor. Before going to Golden State Foods, he enjoyed his time of driving the country as a truck driver. He truly loved his family and they will certainly miss spending time with him.
