Arthur Moore Obituary, Death – Arthur Burt Moore, an esteemed patent attorney and devoted husband and father, passed away suddenly on March 21 at the age of 71 at USC Arcadia Hospital. At the time of his passing, his wife Dominique and daughter Christine were by his side.
Arthur was born in New York City, but he spent his childhood in Roslyn, New York. He attended Harvard University, where he received a degree in physics with the highest possible honors, and then went on to acquire a law degree there. In the beginning of his legal career, he worked for the Dennison Manufacturing Company in Framingham, Massachusetts.
Later, he worked for the Emhart Corporation in Farmington, Connecticut. He returned to Dennison in 1988 and moved his young family to Pasadena, California with the company after it merged with Avery International Corporation to form Avery Dennison. Avery Dennison is now known as Avery International Corporation.
In 1983, he was approved to practice law before the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit as both an attorney and a counselor. Before entering private practice with the Los Angeles offices of Dentons and then Foley & Lardner LLP, Arthur served as the chief intellectual property officer for Avery Dennison.
After that, he served as vice president and chief counsel for Westinghouse Digital. Arthur’s professional career came to an end in private practice. In addition to his other skills, Arthur was a dedicated and accomplished bridge player. Both he and Dominique, his wife of 39 years, were well known on the contract bridge circuit (ACBL), where they established a large number of profound and long-lasting connections.
He also enjoyed introducing his friends to a variety of mind-challenging board games and logic puzzles. But despite the fact that Arthur could be a vicious competitor in bridge tournaments, at the hearts table, or in marathon rounds of Risk, he was highly regarded by everyone who knew him for his unflinching straightforwardness as well as his acute awareness of fairness and the larger good.
Arthur, who was a devoted husband and father, took great pleasure in spending time with every member of his family. His biological siblings Rebecca, Liz, Frank, and Danny, as well as his step-siblings Tom, Betsy, John, and Donny, as well as his sister-in-law Isabelle, and he shared fantastic connections with each of them.
He felt an incredible amount of affection and gratitude toward everyone of their families. And all of his cousins, including the Pattersons, the von Mehrens, and the Hodermarskys, as well as their families, held a very special place in his heart. What wonderful occasions for family get-togethers they have been over the years, and what cherished memories they have created!
Arthur is survived by his wife, Dominique, as well as his daughter Christine and her husband, Jordan Hassay; his aunt Nancy Hodermarsky; his step-siblings Thomas Harris, Donald E. Harris, and Diana Elizabeth (Betsy) Lifschultz; and their families; and his siblings Rebecca Moore, Elizabeth Moore, and Daniel B. Harris; and his step-granddaughter Diana Elizabeth (Betsy) Lifschultz.
In addition to that, he is survived by his sister-in-law, Isabelle Le Blanc, as well as his husband’s father, Pierre Vintéjoux. He is survived by a large number of cherished cousins, nephews, and nieces. Arthur’s father, Earle K. Moore (Dick), and his stepmother, Jeannette Vintéjoux, as well as his stepbrother, John Harris, and his brother, Frank C. Moore, all passed away before him. His mother, Sarah Burt, and her husband, Donald Harris, as well as his brother, Frank C. Moore, also passed away before him.
