Just received the RMPOA Digest and read where LTC Moe passed away 5/26/16. CDR of Ft Huachuca FO in the mid 70's.
Richard LeRoy "Dick" MOE
MOE, Richard LeRoy 'Dick', dedicated University of Arizona alumnus and retired US Army officer, passed away on Thursday, May 26, 2016 of complications from Alzheimer's disease. He was 81 years old. He grew up on a farm outside of Fargo, North Dakota and relocated to Tucson in the early 1950s. He graduated from Tucson High School and went on to attend and graduate the University of Arizona with a Business degree through the Army ROTC. During his time at the UofA, he worked as an assistant trainer for all UofA sports. He knew all of the male athletes, and kept in touch with them throughout the years, eventually using his writing and social skills to publish (at his own expense) the continuation of the 'Pop' McKale news letter in the years leading up to his illness. Dick served in the US Army for 22 years as an officer, retiring in 1978 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. During his military career, he completed two tours during the Vietnam War, received his masters degree in Business and helped direct the National Guard during the 1968 Washington D.C. riots. After retiring from the military, Dick worked as Director of Security for a number of restaurant chains, eventually transforming this career into one as a loss prevention specialist and consultant. He will be buried in Arlington Cemetery according to his wishes and is survived by his wife of 56 years, Jan Moe; their three children (all U of A alumni), and three grandchildren. Donations to his memory may be made to U of A Letterman's Club, P.O. Box 210109, Tucson, AZ 85721, Attn: Rhonda Rugg.
