Stephen A. Moore Obituary
Stephen A. Moore, a long-time resident of Winchester, Massachusetts, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on July 28, 2016. Steve was born on July 13, 1931 and grew up in Washington, D.C., where his father was the Solicitor General of the United States Patent Office. Steve was a member of the Harvard College Class of 1952. While a first year student at Harvard Law School, he met Marjorie Hill, then a senior at Radcliffe College. They married on September 11, 1954. Following graduation from law school, Steve entered the U. S. Navy where he served in the Judge Advocate Generals Office. After leaving active service he continued in the Navy Reserve before retiring as a Captain. Steve had a long and respected career as an attorney in Boston, with expertise in fields including medical malpractice law and estate planning. He was a partner in the firm of Gaston, Snow, Motley, and Holt, which later became Gaston, Snow and Ely, Bartlett. Subsequently, he was associated with Hall & Sullivan in Winchester. He enjoyed playing softball in the Bankers, Brokers, and Lawyers League, impressing his younger associates with his skills as pitcher and catcher. Steve actively participated in civic life in Winchester. He was the longest continuously serving elected member of the Town Meeting, and was active on the Conservation Commission. He and Marjorie also served many years as precinct wardens during town elections. In Scouting, he served as Cub Master of Pack 506 and Troop Committee member of Troop 506. With his family, he was a member of the First Congregational Church of Winchester for more than half a century. During that time, he occupied many offices including usher, Senior Deacon, and member of the Prudential Committee. He always chose his seat in the congregation to have the best view of his wife singing in the choir. Steve was active in Bostons square and contra dancing community, serving on the board of the New England Folk Festival Association. He is survived by his beloved wife and also by his children, S. Thomson Moore and his wife Deborah Camara Freire Moore; Martha Moore and her husband Bruce Mackenzie; and William D. Moore and his wife Charlotte Emans Moore.
