IN LOVING MEMORY
Robert Kirk Moir
Robert (Bob) Kirk Moir of Alexandria passed away on May 22 at 64 years of age after a brief illness. He was born in Lynn, MA to Ralph and Jeanne Moir.
Bob earned a BA in Economics from Washington and Lee University and a JD from George Mason University. He was an attorney at Lankford & Reed, Alexandria.
He was known for his soft spoken intelligence, tremendous laugh, striking blue eyes and ability to start a conversation with anyone. He was an American Revolutionary War and Civil War history buff, and once competed in the Ernest Hemingway Look Alike contest in Key West. His favorite activity was any time spent with his family and friends with good food (and an occasional glass of wine) on the side. Bob was a lifelong fan of classic rock, the NCAA Lacrosse Championships, the Patriots and Red Sox. He caught the travel bug and spent the last few years on international trips with his wife, but still loved being a frequent patron of the BRUT Champagne and Wine Bar in Alexandria.
He was passionate about lacrosse. He coached youth lacrosse at Fort Hunt and then at the Alexandria Lacrosse Club (ALC), and was a founding board member of ALC serving as the second commissioner. He went on to serve for multiple seasons as the Chairman of the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League. Bob was a graduate of the Alexandria City Academy and was appointed to the Park and Recreation Commission. The commission work included serving on the Youth Sports Advisory Board and on the advisory groups for development of the Contrabands and Freedmen Cemetery Memorial and the Fort Ward Park and Museum Area Management Plan.
Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 17 years, Geralyn McNally, his sisters Diane Barrett of Newburyport, MA and Janet Cannon of Stowe, VT and a host of nieces and nephews.
