MOORE: Wayne Moore, of Carberry, Manitoba, passed away peacefully at home, on June 1st, 2022, at the age of 84. Wayne was born February 1st, 1938, to Bill and Dorothy Moore. He was raised along with his sisters on their family farm outside of MacGregor. At a young age Wayne decided he wanted to farm with his dad, which included raising and showing Clydesdale horses.
Wayne married Shirley Moffatt on July 22, 1961 and together they raised three children: Warren; children Samantha, Dominik and Yanik; Leone (Kelly); children Reese and Kenzie; and Dari (Dave); children Caitlin and Johnathon. Wayne coached hockey and served on many committees throughout the years. He farmed for most of his life in MacGregor where he had a mix of grain, hay, cattle and Clydesdales. His love for Clydesdale horses was a big part of his life and he enjoyed showing at many shows across Canada and the United States. He also had the opportunity to judge at several major horse shows. He really enjoyed the connections he made and loved to reminisce about show days and trips to the Royal. Wayne also built show wagons and carts with his dad. He donated the last show wagon that he built, and used, to the Manitoba Agricultural Museum. His hope would be that everyone else would get to enjoy it as much as he did. After retirement, he enjoyed his coffee crowd in both MacGregor and then in Carberry after moving in 2015. His grandchildren were the highlight of his days and he took every opportunity he had to attend and cheer them on at their activities. He loved visits and cracking jokes with the kids. A private family service has been planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of one's choice.

White's Funeral Home,
Carberry, MB
in care of arrangements.

  • So sorry for your loss Warren, Leone and Dari. Really enjoyed getting to know you guys at the Stampede (spider spooking the visitors!!!) Your dad thought you guys were so funny. He was a great man and I enjoyed getting to know him and seeing your farm during the Austin visits. Really appreciated his eye for a good horse and his manner around them. Thinking of you all.

  • I was saddened to read of the passing of Wayne Moore, outstanding Clydesdale owner and advocate. When I was 15 (I'm 60 now), Wayne took me under his wing and allowed me to be a groom every year at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. The silver I polished, the grooming and feeding we did, and the feathers we cleaned with sawdust! I learned very well from Wayne and it has stayed with me my entire life. Ever since I was a little girl, I watched the Clydesdales in awe hoping someday one would be mine. My dream was always to own my own Clydesdale. And because of Wayne, that almost came true. I was adopted by his lead mare Patsy and the bond was unbreakable. So much in fact one evening after the show, I had curled up at Patsy's feet and fell asleep under the manger. Wayne came along and tried to wake me up and Patsy would swing her hind end to whatever side Wayne was at, ensuring he wasn't going to enter her stall. What an amazing horse. I used to visit at the farm in Macgregor to see Patsy and the whole Moore family. The Moore family were so good to me. At feeding time Wayne would holler across the pasture and 10 - 12 Clydes would come thundering down to the barn. The earth moved! Sadly, Patsy died of Cancer and a piece of my heart went with her. As I grew older I developed my horsemanship skills and began showing my own quarter horse. But I would always seek out my beloved Clydes at the Royal and I never missed the 8-horse hitch thundering into the arena! I always had tears in my eyes. So thank you Wayne for all the memories, for sharing your family with me, but mostly for the Clydes. Your kindness and generosity will be with me always. God bless.

  • Always had fun and a laugh with Wayne and Leone his daughter at the horse shows. Had a good laugh about one unicorn class in particular in Calgary years ago. Used to look forward to seeing him at the Manitoba Royal Show. Always a great competitor. Not the same any more without this generation there. - Posted by: Doug McGibbon (Friend competitor) on: Jun 07, 2022

  • I am sending my condolences to the Moore Family. Wayne was a great friend and always teasing me, which I enjoyed. I sometimes drove his ladies cart class in Calgary or Edmonton, when he would come and show here. I was instrumental in getting him to come and judge the Calgary Stampede Heavy Horse Show. We had great conversations! He was a great ambassador for the Clydesdale Breed. Great memories of an awesome man! RIP Wayne! - Posted by: Barb Stephenson (Friend) on: Jun 07, 2022
