Capt Michael Andrew Moore (Ret`d)
We regret to advise of the sudden death of Captain Mike Andrew Moore (Ret’d) in Calgary on 25 May 2013 at the age of 60.
Born in Gillingham, England, Mike spent the majority of his youth on the family farm in Grenfell, SK. After high school, he moved to Victoria, BC to attend the Royal Roads Military College and then went on to RMC in Kingston, ON where he obtained a degree in Engineering.
Mike served as a Military Engineer from 1970 to 1981, serving at Petawawa in 1 Field Squadron /2 Combat Engineer Regiment and later in Base Construction Engineering at CFB Greenwood. While a member of 2 CER he also served for a year in 1st Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment as a Rifle Platoon Commander, assisting them in a “get well campaign” by contributing quality leadership talent to the Canadian Infantry. Mike comes from a family of Military Engineer tradition, being the son of Major Bill Moore (Ret’d) who enlisted during WW II and served in the RCE from 1940 to 1960, and the brother of Colonel Bill Moore (Ret’d) who served from 1976 to 2012.
After his departure from the Canadian Forces, Mike earned a MBA from Queen’s University in Kingston in 1983 and then moved to Alberta in 1987 and worked primarily as a Calgary-based management consultant for the Albertan Oil and Gas Industry.
