LODD Notice - Pasadena Fire Engineer Kevin Moore

Pasadena FireThe City of Pasadena and Pasadena Firefighters Local 809 mourn the death of Pasadena fire engineer Kevin Moore, a 32-year department veteran, who succumbed to sudden cardiac arrest on Tuesday, May 31 after just finishing his 24-hour shift.

Moore, a second generation Pasadena Fire member, recently announced his intent to retire this July. His father, Tom Moore, served as the Department's Assistant Chief. Two of Kevin's brothers currently work for the Vernon Fire Department.

As a senior fire engineer, Moore was responsible for maintaining and driving fire apparatus, ensuring that his crew arrived to incidents safely. His responsibilities also included operating the fire engine pump and fire truck aerial ladder during fire and rescue situations.

As a member of the Regional Task Force Urban Search & Rescue Team, Moore worked out of Station 32 on Villa Street, just west of Altadena Drive in Pasadena for over 10 years.

"Kevin was known as a gentle giant; he sported a large stature and had a sincere, gentle demeanor. We just returned from an annual motorcycle ride where Kevin shared that he was looking forward to retirement and spending time with his kids," said Pasadena Fire Chief Dennis J. Downs.

Moore is survived by his father, his wife, Connie, two teenage children, six brothers and one sister. He was a long time resident of Upland, Calif.
