MOORE, NELSON RICHARD Died Nov. 8 after a struggle with cancer. He was 57. A talented musician, an amateur astronomer and a fearless downhill skier, he was born in St. Louis and went to high school in Milwaukee before his family moved to Dallas in 1967. Over the past 20 years he worked for Compucon Inc., Hall Financial Group, Sally Beauty Co. and Tangent Computer. He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Vincent J. Moore; sisters Lucy Ann Bruzas and Maria Gant; brothers Jody, John, David and William; by their families and by many friends. Funeral services will take place Monday, Nov. 14, at 10 a.m. at St. Rita Catholic Church, 12521 Inwood Road in Dallas, with a reception afterward. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution to Mercy Hospice (417 Oak Bend, Suite 170, Lewisville, TX 75067), whose staff and services were instrumental in ensuring Nelson died with dignity. Or just put on a song by Chet Atkins, Alison Krauss, Ray Charles or the Flying Burrito Brothers and raise a glass to his memory.
