Moe came to Canada from Jib Jinine, Lebanon in April of 1954. He worked in construction in Edmonton, met his wife of 43 years and moved to Calgary in 1957 where he raised his family. He became a barber by day and a manager of a hotel by night.
In 1977 he moved to Kelowna and bought his first night club. Moe owned and operated several night clubs in Kelowna and Vernon. This work kept him young at heart. In his spare time, he loved to fish and travel. Moe will be missed by all who knew him.
