April 23, 1940 - February 7, 2021
Gordon “Gordie” E. Moir, 80, a 67-year Wenatchee resident, passed away on Sunday, February 7, 2021 at Central Washington Hospital - he went peaceful into the arms of Jesus.
Gordie was born on April 23, 1940 in Glasgow, Montana. Son of the late George and Victoria (Barrett) Moir, they made moves from Wagner, MT, to Hayden Lake, ID, Tekoa, WA, and Spokane before settling their family in Wenatchee in 1954. Gordie attended H.B. Ellison Junior High and Wenatchee High School.
Following school, he went to work at Western Union delivering messages and later doing deliveries for Harry Shaffer Bakery. He then went to work for A1 Janitorial where he worked with his father and brother. In February 1975, Gordie started his own business: GEM Custom Cleaning Janitorial Service.
Gordie met and was later married to Virginia Mae Stahley on March 10, 1979 in East Wenatchee. In 1989, they changed the business’s name to Shine 4 U and began to specialize in window cleaning (their slogan was “Sparkling Clean Windows”). After a job was done, he loved to take coffee breaks with his family at different restaurants. Gordie continued his business until his passing.
In 2008, his daughter Deborah started a janitorial service in Cheney known as Shine 4 U Janitorial Service. She was trained by her father to clean windows.
Gordie became a Born-Again Christian at the age of 9 in Tekoa, Washington. His father baptized both he and his brother on the same day. He was a longtime member of the First Baptist Church and had more recently joined Calvary Crossroads Church.
While members of the First Baptist Church, Gordie and Virginia started driving for church planned trips to the different areas of Washington. Gordie and Virginia volunteered almost every time to drive on those trips. He continued to drive for Calvary Crossroads Church every Sunday to pick up members for church until recently.
Gordie and Virginia enjoyed motorcycle riding. Around 1980, a motorcycle club was formed in Wenatchee, called the Cyclones. Gordie and Virginia made many motorcycle trips, including trips to family reunions – all of the trips were historical, mysterious, and always fun!
Gordon is survived by his wife: Virginia Moir; his children: Deborah (Marvin) Tobler, Pamela (Robert) Harmon, Brian Moir, Nancy Herwig, and step-son Kevin Vanderway; 13 grandchildren; 25 great grandchildren, and 3 great-great grandchildren; and sister: Georgel (Gary) LaMore. Gordon is preceded in death by his father, mother, step-mother Mabel, and brother Victor James Moir.
There will be a private family service at Evergreen Memorial Park where Gordon will be placed in the Mausoleum.
