Obituary for Harrison Lyman Moore

Harrison L Moore (77), of Cambridge, Massachusetts, passed away on October 26, 2023, of natural causes. Harrison was born to Charles Lothrop Moore and Alice Lyman Moore in Winchester, Massachusetts. He graduated from the Belmont Hill School (’65) where he was a varsity athlete followed by Harvard College (’69) where he was a member of the Hasty Pudding Club and the DU Club. He later received an MBA/Masters in Journalism from Columbia University. As a journalist, he held positions as a staff writer for several publications including Inc. Magazine and his work was featured nationally, including in the Boston Globe. He later transitioned to real estate in Cambridge, MA, which occupied the remainder of his active career.

As a child, he spent summers in Annisquam, MA and Five Islands, ME where he developed his love of water sports. His thirst for adventure led him to explore heli-skiing, skydiving, windsurfing and scuba, which he enjoyed alongside friends and family. As an avid sportsman, he also completed numerous marathons and triathlons. He was thrilled by the prospect of new experiences and encouraged those closest to him to push themselves beyond their perceived capabilities. Harrison inspired loyal and devoted friendships with his energy, insight, disarming forthrightness and mutual caring.

Harrison is survived by his daughter, Brooke L Moore, his siblings, Elizabeth L Moore and Charles L Moore, and his five nieces and nephew. A funeral will be held on November 29th at 11:00 AM at the First Congregational Church in Winchester, MA.
