My deepest sympathy to the Moore family. I worked for Dr. Moore (1970s). He was the nicest boss I ever had and I would always tell everyone. He was always so kind, friendly, honest and gentle. Our family (Saavedra) all used his services and were grateful for his care. RIP

Such an amazing coach, mentor and an even more amazing human being! I always looked forward to seeing Doc for the annual eye visits and chatting up the good ole softball days, Santa Barbara and all new with his family. Meagan- we've never met, but your dad raves about how wonderful you are as a doctor and mother every time I saw him. He was so proud of you and wanted the world to know!! I am so terribly sorry for your loss, and send heartfelt condolences to you, your mom and his grandchildren. May he Rest In Peace. A major loss for our San Pedro family.

I first met him at his practice in the 1960s when I was a kid. I took my kids to him 30+ years later for their eye care. He was an exceptional human being, who was genuinely humble. May he rest in peace.
