Dennis Moore, founding member of NOAH, passes away

The following item was on the NOAH blog this morning. For readers who read this blog directly on my Website instead of on NOAH"s Website, I thought I would repost this for you. Our condolences to Mr. Moore's family.

From the Desk of NOAH
Dennis Moore, NOAH founding member, passes away at age 59.

NOAH was saddened last week by the news of the death of one of the organization’s founding members.

Dennis Moore, 59, of Fairless Hills, Pa., passed away on Tuesday, July 22, 2008. Mr. Moore, who is the father of NOAH co-founder Lee Laughlin, was one of a small group of people who met in Philadelphia in October of 1982 for a one-day albinism workshop. It was from a seed planted at that workshop and a dinner before it that NOAH grew into the world’s premier support organization for the albinism community.
Mr. Moore had been in poor health as of late and was unable to attend NOAH’s 25th anniversary celebration in Philadelphia this past November. NOAH recognized Mr. Moore’s role as a founder with the presentation of a book clock.

“We all owe Dennis and the other NOAH founders a debt of gratitude for turning ideas into action,” said NOAH President Mike McGowan.
We ask that you keep Mr. Moore’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
