Rest in Peace Brother Moon

Thursday, July 23, 2020

It is with great sadness to let all of you know that retired brother, Journeyman Lineman Card # D179280, Richard J. "Dick" Moon, Jr passed away on July 17, 2020. Brother Richard was initiated into Local 1249 on May 1, 1960 and retired in 2002. Local 1249 sends out thoughts and prayers to his son Rich Moon III, his grandson Scott Blauvelt and to his entire family.
On a personal note, my father was very good friends with Richard. I knew him at such a young age that I called him Uncle Dick and still remember all the good times fishing. On a few occasions I had plans on heading to the marina to go fishing but instead would see him at his camp site and let's just say that I never made it fishing but instead shared a few stories and some drinks with him. I always enjoyed talking with him even though most of it was over my head and if you knew him then you know what I mean. I will miss him and his stories. Click here to read his obituary. RIP Brother.
