River LA Remembers Brian Moore


The staff and board members at River LA would like to send our condolences to the family and friends of Brian Moore. We are honored to have had him as our Board Chair from November 2013-October 2016. His leadership will be sorely missed. Mr. Moore is survived by his wife Nancy (of 43 years), two brothers Norman Jr. and Jon, and his nieces and nephew.

Brian was a pragmatic idealist whose thoughtful leadership invited one and all to take part in creating a Los Angeles River worthy of our region. As fellow River LA board member Steve English shared,

"What a fine man, and how lucky we were to have him as our leader. We’ll miss him sure, but his stamp is on the organization, and his example in our hearts." - Steve English
