In Loving Memory of a Masterful Meat Cutter.

My Grandpa, Vaughn Moomey passed away this week at the age of 90.  We are going to miss him so much, but we’re also content that he is in a better place with the Lord. 

For many years he worked hard as a Butcher for Von’s Grocers.  I remember having long talks about the various cuts of Beef — It’s a lot more complicated than I imagined.  He was a very gentle, patient and loving man.

And he still looked handsome at 90.  We love you Grandpa, Dad and PaPa.  Thanks for being such a Great Man!

christmas-0271Merry Christmas in Heaven this year Grandpa.  We miss you very much, but we’re glad you’re in peace with God.  Uncle Doug carved your name in the tree.  I hope we don’t get you kicked out. 🙂

    Very sorry to hear of Vaughn’s passing.
    I believe I am distantly related to this family…. is this the Moomey family that has lived in Downey for many years?

    I saw your article on Vaughn Moomey. I am doing some genealogy work and think I’m related to Vaughn through his mother, Esta. How many Vaughn S. Moomeys can there be in the world? Anyway, I would love to talk to you about the Moomey family, if you have the time. Vaughn looks like a great guy. My email address is storyclan@msn.com. Thanks!
