Obituary of Alexander Moffat

MOFFAT, Alexander Innes “Muff”

73 years, gave it all he could to fight and after a wonderful week of visits with family and friends, passed peacefully surrounded by family on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at Erie Shores Hospice. Beloved husband of Evelyn (nee Wilson). Best Dad of Lorna Baker and husband Craig and Bill Moffat and wife Kerri. Proud Gaga of his treasured grandchildren, Grant, Holly, Callum and Andrew Baker and Teagan and Easton Moffat. Dearest brother of late Andy (late Betty), late Ella McKay (late Jimmy), Harold (June), late Nessie Thompson (Alex), Ernie (Ingrid), Billy (Irene) and brother-in-law of late Billy Wilson (late Jean), late Jim Wilson (Pat), late Bertie Wilson and the late Archie Wilson (late Margaret). He is also remembered by many nieces and nephews. Muff retired from Hiram Walkers after more than 25 years of service. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 201, Essex and a longtime member of Belleview Golf Club. He lived a simple life and his two biggest joys were being surrounded by his grandchildren while playing the guitar and enjoying any day out on the golf course. We would like to thank Dr. Shaban, every nurse and the entire incredible staff at Erie Shores Hospice. You gave us the gift of an amazing week that included many joyful visits. We will be forever grateful. Special thanks to the many family and friends that visited - he enjoyed seeing every one of you. We will always remember his sense of humour and quick wit. Visiting at the Reid Funeral Home and Reception Centre, 87 Maidstone Ave. E., Essex (519-776-4233) on Friday 2-5 and 7-9 pm. Funeral Service to celebrate Muff’s life will be held from the funeral home on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 10:30 am. Rev. Kim Gilliland officiating. If desired memorial donations made to Erie Shores Hospice would be appreciated. Family and friends are invited to share their memories online at
