Perch Base Holland Club and Life Member Tim Moore departed on Eternal Patrol on July 31, 2020.
Our condolences to his Sons, Darren and Kevin, Daughter-in-Law Renee and the rest of the family.
Tim Moore was the Chairman of the Arizona Silent Service Memorial (ASSM) to be built in Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza in front of the Arizona State Capital Building. As stated by his fellow ASSM Board Member, Chris Urness, "Tim passionately carried this Memorial for the past several years, all the way to the 1 yard line. It’s beyond heart-breaking that he’s doesn’t get to see it through to the finale." Ground breaking at the Memorial Plaza is scheduled for Monday, August 3rd and the public dedication ceremony is scheduled for the fall of 2020. Tim previously served as the Perch Base Commander, Vice-Commander and Base Secretary.
