Allan (Al) David Moon, of Rochester, NY was born on May 11, 1945 to Louis and Emily (Brambly/Fox) Moon in Oakland, CA. The Moon family established a homestead in Victor NY, on Hook Rd where Al would drive 1936 Plymouth, loaded with his two siblings John & Kathy, in the field like it was a demolition derby.

After graduating high school, Al enlisted in the United States Navy from 1963-69, and served as a radar operator. After fulfilling his service, Al opened Al’s Webster American, a full-service gas station and automotive repair shop, in Webster, NY. From 1974-80, he worked as a Field Engineer for Control Data Corporation, servicing both CDC supercomputers and IBM mainframe systems. Al obtained a degree in Mechanical engineering and was a consultant specializing in residential architecture.

Al was also a talented woodworker. He handcrafted, custom optical equipment cases for Tropel Optical. Outside of work, Al created a 26-car wooden train set to spec, including a circus car, coal car, and oil tanker. One of his favorite hobbies was collecting and restoring vintage wood carved tobacco pipes.

Al was an avid tuba player participating in the Naval Orchestra, Brighton Community Band, Greece Concert Band, and other local community bands. He taught music at The Hochstein School, University of Rochester, and Rochester Institute of Technology. Al had a love of music and an exceptional tuba collection.

Al passed away on May 29th, 2024, at 79 years old, in Rochester, NY. Predeceased by his parents, and brother John Moon. Survived by his sister Kathy (Bob) Wieditz; daughter Sue Murphy (John Nameth); sons Tim (Kealica), Eric (Kate), and Todd Moon; grandchildren Sean, Collin, Alyssa, Gwen, Jacob, Emily, & Owen; great grandson Aiden.

In memory of Al, we invite contributions to the Beagle Freedom Project. Al had a love for animals, especially beagles, and was a passionate advocate against animal cruelty.
