Albert McDonald Moore, a loving, caring, talented man was God's gift to hi parents, family, the world, and his devoted wife, Peulah Marie Moore. Albert was born on May 7, 1929, in Old Fort, NC to Henry A. Moore and Ella Johnson Moore as their sixth son and eleventh and last child. His parents preceded him in death as did his five brothers and five sisters. His youngest sister who was two years his senior preceded him in death by three months. Albert grew up and was educated in Asheville, NC. He graduated May 26, 1950, from Stephens Lee High School where he was encouraged to develop and exhibit his beautiful tenor singing voice, Also, during his time in high school, his love for playing the guitar was inspired and developed as was his desire to be a productive, contributing, wage earner of the family. He worked for S. A. Rubin Grocery Store where the store owner and the customers recognized and depended on his honesty, integrity, good judgement, and kindness. On January 17, 1951, he was inducted into the US Army. In addition to military training, traveling, other demands and activities he was privileged to serve as Chaplain's Assistant. During that assignment, he organized, directed, and played the piano for the choir much to his enjoyment. His two years of military service were spent in the United State of America and he was tremendously blessed by God by his efforts and work in "kingdom Building". By the end of his stint in the army, his father Henry had decided to move his home to Baltimore, Maryland. Upon Albert's honorable discharge, he decided to join his parents and several of his siblings in Baltimore. Upon arriving in Baltimore in 1953 Albert immediately started to "pound the pavement" looking for a job. He finally found one with minimum wages at Reliable Store on Baltimore Street. It was decided that he would be trained as a pressman. His parents joined Pennsylvania Avenue A.M.E. Zion Church and Albert did the same immediately following his arrival to the city. It is here at church, where he was introduced to Peulah by his mother and sister Mary following morning service. In the days, weeks, and 2 1/2 years later they became friends, fell in love, became engaged, and married on November 27, 1955. They started to establish their home, each went to school at night and on weekend. They loved each other, supported each other, worked together, and began to realize God's blessing in their lives together. Albert graduated from The Maryland Technical Institute on November 17, 1958. He continued to climb but wanted to do more. Finally, God blessed him to be interviewed and offered a job at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. He was thrilled and so was Peulah who had ended her job t Sinai Hospitals as a medical technologist to become a science teacher where she felt she make a lasting contribution to God's world. They supported each other and climbed together, they were maintaining! Albert and Peulah always remembered that God would never "leave them nor forsake them" and that " all things work for the good of those who love the Lord". Albert continued to participate in advanced training and classes and to hone his skills. He received numerous citations and special achievement awards in recognition and appreciation of exceptional service and performance of official duties. Albert was a kind "Mr. Fix It" in the neighborhood often taking time to help neighborhood children and his adult neighbors by sharing his tools, knowledge, and time. Whenever the boys saw him at work in the backyard they would call out "hi Mr. Moore" as they rode by on their bikes or wagons. Not long after their greeting, they may gather around him asking questions or telling him something they wanted to share. Rarely was he ever too busy to help them with their problems or to talk to them. He loved children and they demonstrated love to him. Albert shared his blessings from God through giving to his church. The Pennsylvania Avenue A.M.E. Zion Church, services organizations, charities for the hungry, homeless, sick, disabled, schools, and hospitals. He served on the male usher board, as a choir member, and on The Building Fund Board. Albert loved to sing. He sang in the church choir and with several male quarters for which he also played the guitar. This included the Billy Graham Crusade Choir in Baltimore, the Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration, and Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. He also developed a passion for bowling, oil painting, working with ceramics, home decorating, furniture design, vegetable gardening, landscaping, and other crafts. He dutifully helped his wife, Peulah with household chores and her many duties as President of the Forest Park Golf Course Neighborhood Association, Inc, and in her travels to various schools, as she sought various degrees before she got a driver's license. One of the longest far-reaching projects that he attempted was to photograph more than 200 Baltimore City Churches and to compile the photographs into a book that he hoped to have copyrighted. Peulah served as the editor. Since he did not complete the project, she hopes to finish it in his honor before her demise. Following the death of his mother, Albert and Peulah suggested to their family the idea to have a "get together" with the family other than at funerals. The family was excited by the idea of a regular family reunion and elected Albert as the historian. He was honored with the responsibility of the job and diligently worked to make it successful; he served as a family historian for more than thirty years. Albert's love for family especially shinned in his role as a father and grandfather. Albert leaves to mourn his death his wife of 65 years and 360 days, Peulah Marie (Owens) Moore, his daughter Cheri Henry, and grandchildren Jaden, Myah, and Neah. His parents, Henry Alexander and Ella Johnson Moore along with his brother (James, William, Samuel, Amos, and Ernest) and sisters (Mary, Annie, Bessie, and Kathleen) preceded him in death He also leaves a host of family and several "favorite" nieces and nephews. As Albert began his transition to be with God he suffered but never complained. His family gathered to release him and say goodbye in addition to his wife, daughter, and grandchildren included devoted nephews Charles (Abby) Moore and Ammanuel (Oprah) Moore, Lettamariam Moore, Mary (Ronald) Dixon, Michael (Susan) Ferguson, Rev. Jasmin Duckett, and Sisters Caroline Shufford. Albert's life will be celebrated on December 11, 2021 at Pennsylvania Avenue A.M.E. Zion Church with Rev. Milton A. Williams Jr. officiating, and his nephew, Rev. Dr. James L.E. Hunt will provide the Eulogy.
