-Arnold Lee Moore-

Arnold Lee Moore was born on June 10,1948. He entered into eternal life on January 14, 2017. He was a proud member of the Yurok Tribe. He enjoyed traditional foods, such as smoked salmon, eels, sturgeon and especially fry bread. He touched numerous lives with his optimism and infectious smile. Even though Arnold lived with Cerebral Palsy, never once did you hear him complain. Bowling was one of his life’s passions and he would not hesitate to show off his score card. He participated weekly at HCAR, (Humboldt Community Access Resource) looking forward to cooking classes, swimming and all other community events. Arnold participated in the Special Olympics, from which he had a large collection of medals and trophies. Earlier in life Arnold took pride in delivering Tri City papers and enjoyed his paychecks. Arnold might be remembered for riding his 3 wheeled bicycle around Hoopa collecting cans, another one of his passions. Arnold Lee Moore will forever be remembered as a special, kind and loving soul.
