Bill was born February 5th, 1931 at his Grandfather Harvey C. Moore’s home on Seegars Sreet in Andalusia. His parents were Dewey C. Moore, Sr. and Bonice Leonard Moore. He spent his boyhood working on his fathers dairy farm on the Conecuh River. He attended East Three Notch and Church Street elementary schools. He graduated from Andalusia High School in 1949. While at Andalusia High School, Bill played 4 years on the football team.

In the fall of 1949, Bill entered the Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn University). In 1951 during the Korean Conflict, Bill joined the United States Air Force attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant by the time he mustered out. While stationed at Brookley Air Base in Mobile, he met the love of his life, Hilda Faust. They married on March 18th, 1954. He once again enrolled at API under the GI Bill. He graduated in 1956 with a degree in Entomology. He put his degree to good use as he immediately went to work for the United States Department of Agriculture’s Plant Protection and Quarantine.

Over his 30 year career with the PPQ, Bill worked in Mobile, AL, Baton Rouge, LA, New Orleans, LA, Hyattsville, MD and Brownsville, TX.
