Beloved husband and father, Robert Moir of Brewster, MA. passed on July 27, 2019. He is survived by his sisters Barbara and Lynn, his niece Stephanie, his wife Margaret, his children Naomi and Max, his son-in-law Moses and three beautiful grandsons.
His life made a difference in a wounded world. He cared for the “other” as he cared for his family and friends. From his earliest years as a member of “the Catholic Underground” to his work organizing for the United Farm Workers. From his Civil Rights activism to his protests of the Vietnam War. From his pursuit of academic honesty in the classroom to his leadership in the New Jersey Teachers Union and the National Education Association, Rob was a man of character and courage. His passion for, and great knowledge of, European and American History led to him speak out and take risks lest history’s most heinous mistakes be repeated. A revolutionary until the end, his love for the Irish Independence Movement and other peace and justice movements, led him across the world to leave his spirited mark.
Rob remained a staunch advocate for people’s rights until Alzheimers Disease disabled his keen intellect. It never dimmed his caring heart.
Donations in Rob’s memory may be made out to The Alzheimers Family Support Center, 2095 Main Street, Brewster, MA. or to the Rosenberg Fund for Children, which supports children of targeted activists.
