Mal died July 13, 2023, in Seattle, the city that he and his wife, Phoebe Ann, had adopted and where he practiced law for 58 years. He is survived by Phoebe Ann, three children, and six grandchildren.

Coming from College High School in Upper Montclair, N.J., where he was editor of the school newspaper, Mal dined at Quadrangle, majored in the Woodrow Wilson School, managed advertising for the Prince, and chaired the Prince-Tiger Dance. He roomed with Buchanan, Huddleston, Ryan, Chuck Smith, and Dunc Stewart.

Following graduation, Mal attended Harvard Law School, then joined Hughes Hubbard & Reed in New York City. Three years later the Moores moved to Phoebe Ann’s hometown of Seattle, where Mal joined the firm of Davis Wright Tremaine, growing its trusts and estates section to a national practice. He became chairman of the real property, probate, and trust law section of the ABA, president of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, and a lifetime member of the American Law Institute. Among other honors he was chair of the Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trust and Estate Acts.

Mal helped establish Seattle’s Elisabeth Carey Miller Botanical Garden and Dunn Gardens. For many years he served on the boards of Lakeside School, where his children attended, and the Virginia Mason Franciscan Health Foundation.
