Arnold Moore "Mo"  

Of Alexandria, VA, died at home on the morning of June 12, 2018. Arnold dearly loved his family-both the one he was born into and the one he married into, and his friends-who were numerous, diverse and treasured. He relished good ideas, good conversation and good bourbon, especially in combination. At his synagogue, he was known for his bow ties, his bowler hats and his wild socks, which rarely matched his shirts or ties. The common thread in his career life was the ability to analyze and wrestle with abstract problems with the goal of developing concrete solutions. Although he spent 16 years at the American Petroleum Institute, retiring as director of Trends and Strategic Analysis, his pivotal work experience was as director of planning at the Center for Naval Analysis where he found creative inspiration and formed bonds of friendship that have lasted more than half a century. Arnold was born in 1934 in Richmond, VA to Jacob and Hannah Moore. He attended the University of Richmond where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He held an MBA and a PhD in economics from the University of Chicago. He was an active member of Agudas Achim Congregation of Alexandria, the Friday Morning Bagel Boys and the ROMEOS. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Joan Hartman Moore, Alexandria; son, Harry Moore, Kensington, MD; daughter Jesse Moore, Catskill, NY; brother Abby Moore, Richmond, and grandchildren Hannah and Oliver Moore, Kensington, and numerous extended family all of whom loved him dearly, celebrate his memory and will miss him more than words can say. Funeral service will be held at Agudas Achim, 2908 Valley Dr. Alexandria, VA 22302 on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 2 p.m. Interment following at Agudas Achim Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Agudas Achim Congregation or the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
