The Guest Book is expired.
Earl S. Moore, Jr. passed away peacefully on August 16, 2013 at Greenwich Hospital from complications of pneumonia. He and his wife Darlene have been Greenwich residents since moving here from Michigan in 1965.
He was born on November 3, 1930 in St. Louis, MO to Margaret & Earl S. Moore. He was a graduate of University City High School in University City, MO (1944-1948) where he lettered in football and track. He went on to Princeton University (1948-1952) where he was a proud member of the Cannon Club and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.
He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1952 and served in Military Intelligence from 1952-1956. He learned to speak fluent Mandarin Chinese at the Army Language School in Monterey, CA and then served overseas in the Korean War.
Earl worked for McGraw Hill, Inc. from 1956 to 1991, retiring as Vice President, BusinessWeek International. He was the director of international sales for BusinessWeek Magazine and enjoyed a wonderful and successful career that allowed him and his wife to travel the world. Earl was instrumental in helping McGraw Hill establish a Chinese language edition of BusinessWeek. Upon retiring from BusinessWeek in 1991, he decided to use his extensive experience, knowledge and contacts in the Asian markets to found Asia Pacific Marketing and ran that consulting business for several more years before entering full retirement.
In retirement he happily provided many years of service to The Rotary Club of Greenwich where he particularly enjoyed working with their scholarship fund recipients. A lifelong avid sportsman, he stayed active with his many dear friends at the Milbrook Club playing tennis, paddle tennis and golf.
He is survived by his beloved wife of fifty years, Darlene; his brother Malcolm Moore of Plymouth, MN; his son Earl S. "Tripp" Moore III, his wife Laura and two grandchildren Eva and Spencer of Greenwich, CT.
