Vincent “Vince” Moore, a veteran of the Vietnam War, departed this life on Friday, May 3, 2024, at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, MD after an extended illness. He was born November 24, 1948, to the late Morris Moore, Jr and Audrey Vonzella (nee Lemons) Moore in Washington, DC.

He was raised in Wahington, DC where he attended DC public schools, and graduated from Spingarn High School in 1967. Shortly after high school, Vincent enlisted in the United States Marine Corp. He was stationed at Camp Pendelton, California before beginning a tour of duty in Vietnam from August 1968 to January 1970. During his service, Vince earned a Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Rifle Marksman Badge, Vietnam Service Medal, and Combat Action Ribbon. He was Honorably Discharged at the rank of Lance Corporal, the highest rank achievable by a non-commissioned Marine.  Upon discharge from the military, Vince enrolled in the Washington Technical Institute where he earned an associate’s degree in Audiovisual Technology in 1975.

Vince spent his entire career of 51 years at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in Arlington, VA before retiring in 2020 as a Special Service Specialist in the Division of Administration. He loved his job and co-workers; some becoming life-long friends.

Vince was an avid sports fan, who in his youth played basketball from dawn to dusk at Watts Branch Playground, now known as Marvin Gaye Park, directly across the street from his family home on Banks Place, NE, DC. When viewing games on television he was a loyal fan of his favorite teams: the NFL Washington Commanders (formerly Redskins) and the NBA Washington Wizards. He also enjoyed roller skating and served as an “úsher” at the DC Kalorama Roller Rink (was National Arena) during the 60’s/70’s. However, dancing was his forte. He could skillfully perform the Bop, DC hand dancing and any other popular dance over the years. Later in life, he enjoyed traveling with friends, and riding his bike.

Vincent leaves to cherish his memory: his loving daughter, Monica Moore, from his first marriage; his darling granddaughter, Celeste; an aunt, Estrella Hunter; two sisters, Yvonne Gibson, and Margaret Moore; two nieces, Russchelle Moore and Nikeka (Nikki) Gibson; a host of great-nieces and nephews, and other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents Morris and Audrey Moore, and infant brother, Eugene.

Vincent accepted Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of his life. He lived a rich and full life; was a great father, a good friend and was loved by all who knew him.
