Dick Moore of Portola Valley, Calif., died Apr. 14, 1997, at home, in the arms of his wife, Sebrianne. The cause of death was a brain tumor, against which Dick fought for eight months.
Dick came to Princeton from East HS in Denver, and majored in geological engineering. He was a member of Cap and Gown Club, played tackle on the varsity football team, and also received his letter in track. After graduation, Dick served in the Army for two years. Broadening his horizons, he received an MS in electrical engineering from UCĂ?Berkeley in 1961.
Dick was with Hewlett Packard for 23 years, ultimately serving as general manager of the engineering productivity division. During the rest of his career, Dick held numerous executive positions in the electronics and computer industry in the Silicon Valley area. At the time of his death, he was senior adviser to The Enterprise Network and a member of the board of directors of Digital Link Corporation, both in Sunnyvale.
Dick was a big man--in every way. He loved and was loved by many persons. As Sebrianne wrote, Dick had size 12 shoes and a size 12 heart. He is survived by Sebrianne, whom he married in 1988; his daughter, Carole, and son, James, both from his first marriage; and a sister, Marilyn von Ehrenkrook. The class extends its deep sympathy to each of them.
