Walter Clifton Moone Jr.
DURHAM - On Monday, January 7, 2013, Walter Clifton Moone Jr. relinquished his mortal body to be “clothed…with immortality” in keeping with the promises of God. “Big Cliff", as he was known to his family, was not a man large in stature but was a man “large” in the hearts of his family and many friends and acquaintances. Preceded in death by his beloved wife of 48 years, Hilda Long Moone, he departed this life at the age of 89. He was also preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Cecil Locke Moone, all of Enfield.
Mr. Moone was born and raised in Enfield, N.C., the eldest son of Walter C. Moone Sr. and Susie Locke Moone. Raised on a small tobacco farm, he was the first person in his family to go to college, graduating from Wake Forest College in 1950. While in college, where he met and fell in love with Hilda, he was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. Upon graduation, he started his career with Durham Industrial Bank in Durham. He was a member of the Durham Jaycees. After leaving the bank, for the remainder of his career, he worked as the Exports Manager for Liggett and Myers Tobacco Co. in Durham. During WWII, he served in the US Army as a Med Tec, rising to the rank of Sergeant.
Mr. Moone loved to work in his yard where he planted and nurtured nearly 200 azaleas and other flowers and plants as well. He enjoyed gardening, supplemented his family’s income painting houses, and was always ready to help his neighbors and friends. He believed in the value of hard work, and he loved to dance. His home, built in 1954, was his pride and joy. He could sometimes cuss like a sailor but also would weep over a dying dog or the difficulties of a friend. He was a man who almost always spoke his mind. He was a devoted husband and father, and a friend to many who will miss him greatly.
Mr. Moone is survived by a son, the Rev. Walter Clifton Moone III; a daughter, Susan Moone Graham; a daughter-in-law, Gaye Sawyer Moone; a son-in-law, Steve Graham; three grandchildren, David Lee Moone, Amy Moone Beheler (and husband, Todd), and Sarah Catherine Moone; two great grandchildren, Anna Elizabeth Teall and Audrey Dae Moone.
A memorial service will be held at Epworth United Methodist Church, 3002 Hope Valley Rd., Durham, on Monday, January 14, 2013 at 1 p.m. The family will receive from 12 noon to 12:45 p.m. at the church prior to the service. The Rev. Hope Vickers and the Rev. Eugene Cobb will officiate the memorial service. Flowers are welcome and should be delivered to the church from 9 to 11 a.m. on the 14th. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Epworth UMC for the maintenance and care of the Prayer Garden.

Winton Ray Poole
CHARLOTTE — Winton Ray Poole of Charlotte died Wednesday, January 9th at the Harris Hospice Unit at Presbyterian Hospital after a brief illness.
Born March 14, 1927 in Durham, Winton was the son of Willie and Annie Poole. He graduated from Durham High School, The Kennedy Commercial School and the Louisiana State University Banking School.
A banking executive and civic leader in North Carolina, Winton Poole began his career in Durham. Moving to Greensboro and then to Charlotte, he became the Senior Vice President For Marketing with North Carolina National Bank, now Bank of America. His 40-year career with banking and commerce involved him in countless organizations from local businesses, charity and civic groups to international credit card development boards. By the time he retired he was the longest serving marketing executive in the banking industry in Charlotte. His leadership and professionalism left a lasting mark on the business and the people with whom he worked.
After he retired from banking, Winton Poole became involved in civic life in Cornelius, North Carolina, where he’d lived since 1979. Twice elected to the Cornelius Town Board he also served one partial term as Mayor Of Cornelius. He was a member of the Board of Director of ElectriCities and Our Towns Habitat for Humanity where he personally helped construct numerous Habitat houses. One of the Habitat neighborhood streets in Cornelius is named “Poole Place” in his honor. He also helped found the “WIMPS” in Davidson. The group “We’re Intent on Making Progress Slowly” met once a week at The Soda Shop, initially to socialize, but inevitably to raise funds and “friends” for charitable causes.
An avid and highly competitive sailor, a tennis player well into his 80s, a voracious reader with a restless and curious mind, Winton Poole was always interested in new ideas, new things, especially technology “gadgets” and people. He could turn acquaintances into friends and friends into partners. It was something to behold.
It was a typical thing to see Winton Poole, with his infectious love of life and adventure, windsurfing around Lake Norman or jumping on a trampoline with his grandsons. He always enjoyed watching his grandsons pursue their many interests as well as their education.
He is survived by his wife and partner of 62 years, Janet Marie Thompson Poole; daughter, Jan Stanley and her husband, Steve Stanley of Aho, North Carolina; and daughter, Jill McDevitt and her husband, Richard McDevitt of Davidson; also four grandsons, Drew Stanley and Lee Stanley and Dylan McDevitt and Carter McDevitt; and his sisters, Ellen P. Bridges of Ormond Beach, Fla.; Hilda Holtzclaw of Morristown, Tenn. and Doris Jones (Dallas) of Durham.
There will be a service on Monday, January 14 at 2 p.m. at Providence Methodist Church, 2810 Providence Rd., Charlotte. The Family requests that in lieu of flowers that contributions are made to
