Working at Maple Crest Golf Course in Brimfield, Ohio from the time he was 10 years old helped develop work ethics that carried him through receiving his Certificate of Apprentice as a carpenter in the late 1960’s.
In the early 70’s he turned his attention to overseeing cattle operations in Wayne County along with looking after the Monroe Coal Company, located in Muskingum County. These opportunities led him into the Oil and Gas Industry where he never left. Under the guidance of Mr. Bill Tipka Sr., Bob learned the industry and led K.S.T. Oil and Gas into drilling and operating over 1200 wells throughout Ohio.
In 1995 after the sale of K.S.T., Bob established Moore Well Services Inc. a service company able to handle all needs of the Industry. His personality and knowledge made the transition easy to establish a successful service company.
Being a man of his word, a handshake was as good as a contract. Always preaching strong family values along with his one line comments, he will always be remembered for his strong work ethics. Being the one to put everyone ahead of him, he generously sacrificed his time to benefit many others. Bob was a dedicated advocate to the industry and very proud to be a member of the Ohio Oil and Gas Association.
Bob was inducted into the Oil & Gas Hall of Fame in 2011.
