William “Billy” Moore IV was born on August 15, 1969, to William H. Moore III and Sharon Moore Miles. He has one sister, Marie Willet. Billy was married to Loretta Moore and has a son, William H. Moore V, and two stepchildren, Eric and Heather Anders, who he was incredibly proud of. He has two grandchildren, Dillon Beasley and Emma Anders, all of Amelia. Billy has two nieces, Amber Haden and Valerie Brown, along with a great-niece, Wynter Moore, and a great nephew, Damien Moore. William “Billy” Moore IV is survived by them and many other loving extended family members and friends. Billy touched a lot of lives. He loved those around him unconditionally and is loved and will be missed by all his family and friends.

Billy grew up in the small town of Amelia Court House, Virginia, where family and friends were always there for each other. He was always trying to help everyone, no matter who they were or what the situation was. The fire department was a big part of his family. When the tones went off, he was always ready to go on a call no matter the time. He looked up to a lot of the guys on the fire department and had a lot of respect for them. He enjoyed working on projects at the fire house. Billy always wanted to be a firefighter but waited until later in life to become a member.

On June 14, 2018, Billy was in a training class at the fire house when he suffered a medical emergency, went into cardiac arrest, and passed. This was the hardest call I had ever received and had to make to the rest of the family. That night was a nightmare for all the family and the fire department.
He received a beautiful funeral from the fire department with the help of the Hanover Fire Department. This was Amelia’s first line-of-duty death. Everyone did a great job, and we appreciate everything they did for us.

Billy loved to fish and hunt. As siblings that enjoyed both, we were always in competition with each other. The best times were when we got to go together. He loved children and was always doing stuff with them. He enjoyed going to baseball and football games to help and watch Dillon play.
Billy is truly missed every day by his family, friends, and fire department.
