Edward Moore
March 19, 1934-Jan. 27, 2024
Redwood City, United States

Edward Albert Moore died peacefully in his sleep January 27, 2024, at his home in Redwood City, CA. He died of pulmonary disease just a few weeks shy of his 90th birthday.

How does one describe a multi-talented, many-faceted, good man? Edward was an actor, theatre director, set designer and playwright with credits in a national playlist. He started theatre groups in Cleveland, OH; New Zealand and Western Samoa.

He was a published science fiction writer, an artist, antique restorer, creator of museum displays, intricate wood puzzles and other artistic projects. His popular garden sculptures often disappeared from his front yard soon after they were displayed.

He was an adventurer, ran the Grand Canyon from rim to rim, trekked through national parks in the US and parks in Australia and New Zealand .

Edward taught and played the ukulele throughout the peninsula for 15 years. He delighted in composing exercises and etudes to challenge friends in his music groups.

He remained active and involved despite his illness, as a member of the National Horseshow Pitching Association. He recently returned to a previous hobby --creating Japanese bonsai tree art. He is survived by

his wife P.A. (Patricia) Moore of Redwood City; his brother Philip Moore in Grants Pass, OR; and a sister Mary Alice Vertz in Show Low, AZ.
