Dail Moore Obituary

Dail Burton Moore, 76, of Washington, DC, passed away Friday, October 6th.  He was the son of Philip C. Moore Sr. and Eleanor Moore.  He had Alzheimer’s disease. He is survived by a brother, Philip C. Moore, Jr., several cousins, and a lifelong friend, H. Craig Kellermann.  Mr. Moore was born and raised in Seaford, Delaware and graduated from Seaford High School in 1965.   He graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA Degree in 1969.

Dail was a musical prodigy, accomplished at playing several instruments, including clarinet, saxophone, and bassoon. 

After college, his career followed an altruistic path when he joined the Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) program, the domestic equivalent of the Peace Corps.  He spent two years in the Appalachian Mountains in far north Georgia helping underprivileged people with education opportunities and developing and marketing local craft skills.  This was followed by employment with The City of Alexandria, Va. where he was the Director of the Office of Employment and Training.  In that position he was instrumental in developing and promoting employment and training opportunities for economically and socially deprived individuals. Later he worked for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families, in the Office of Child Support Enforcement.  He was the Director of the National Technical Assistance and Training Center where he received numerous professional achievement awards over the years.  He retired from HHS in 2011.

He will be missed by his family and friends. He spent his last years in the Residences at Thomas Circle, Washington DC, where was known by the residents and helpers for his kindness and cordiality.  Tyronne Gibson and Heather Weir-Jamison at the Residences provided him with invaluable loving care.   

In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to St. Luke’s Episcopal church in Seaford or the Alzheimer’s Association.

A Memorial Service will take place on Friday, October 27, 2023, at 11:00 AM at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Seaford, DE.
