Charles Louis Moir III ’69

Published in Oct. 9, 2002, issue

Chuck, a nonsmoker, died of lung cancer at home in Calgary, Alberta, on Apr. 19, 2002.

Chuck came to Princeton from Lake Forest Academy, in Illinois. A commons waiter, he played 150-lb. football, was a member of the Karate Club, majored in politics/American civilization, and was in the Chapel Choir. Chuck was orphaned in our freshman year and lost his only sibling the following year.

He earned an MD from the U. of Illinois in Chicago. His postgraduate medical education and practice occurred in Canada, with cardiac training at the Cleveland Clinic and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. He was a cardiac anesthesiologist the last 14 years in Calgary, near his beloved Canadian Rockies. Chuck said that his personality blossomed while married to Odile Grenier for the past 10 years. Before his death, Chuck said, "As the ancient Chinese saying goes, 'The minute you are born, you begin to die.' More adventures ahead."

Chuck is survived by Odile, and by family in Chicago, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. We mourn his passing.
