|Alfred V. Moormann passed away on Sunday, March 25, 2007, having lived an amazing 85 years. |
He fought a valiant battle against lung cancer and his incredible strength, determination and positive attitude gave this devastating cancer a run for its money. Born in 1921, the middle son of three (Bernard, Alfred, Franklin), he was raised, married and enjoyed life in the Southside of Chicago. He served his country in WWII, while stationed in Europe; he fought in the 'Battle of the Bulge'. He worked as a pressman for R.R. Donnelly, printing wonderful color magazines including, 'Life Magazine' and the ever-present American staple, 'Sears Catalog'. He shared his life with his loving wife of 60 years, Ann. Together they raised six incredible, dynamic contributions to society: Alan (Marianne) of St. Charles, MO., Dan (Sherri) of Buffalo Grove, IL., Pauline (Dave) of San Diego, CA., Mary (Ricky) of Tucson, AZ., Andy (Kim) of Palos Hills, IL., and of course, the "caboose" Steve (Sheri) of Oro Valley, AZ. His legacy also lives on in the lives of his 12 grandchildren: Nick, Paul (Tiffany), Ann Marie (Michael), Stephanie, Wendy, Tyler (Aimee), Tamra, Chad, Andrea, Joseph, Cierra and Garrett. His five great-grandchildren: Xavier, Ambrose, Adrian, Samantha and Elysia were privileged and honored to have known his wisdom. Alfred and Ann were able to retire and move to Tucson, AZ in 1977, adapting to this warm haven they loved together for 30 years. The family, even though spread out from Chicago, Tucson, St. Louis and San Diego, still gathered to celebrate and enjoy their parent's 50th and 60th wedding anniversaries. He will certainly be missed, yet always remembered in his children's faces and the wonderful and lasting memories he created in this world. In lieu of flowers, Dad wished to have donations made in his name to The Tucson Humane Society or the American Legion Post #36, 5845 E. 22nd Street.
A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, April 6, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. at BRING'S BROADWAY CHAPEL, 6910 E. Broadway Blvd. A dinner for friends and family will be hosted at the home of Steve and Sheri immediately following. Dad will be buried in military honor on Friday, May 11, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. at All Faiths Memorial Cemetery, 2151 S. Avenida Los Reyes.
