DECATUR, GA. — Al Moore, a PCT Service Technician-of-the-Year in 2007, has died. He was 59.

A 30-year veteran of the pest control industry, Moore was a popular service manager at Massey Services’ Alpharetta, Ga., office. Noted for his exemplary customer service, Moore had a long and distinguished pest control career, serving as a technician for Orkin Pest Control in New Orleans and technical director with Sears Pest Control in Atlanta before opening his own business — Guideline Pest Control — in 1990. He joined Massey Services in 2005, receiving the prestigious Harvey L. Massey Award at the company’s 2010 Eagle Circle Awards Banquet.

“Al unfailingly went above and beyond to not only support customers, but also his fellow team members,” said Tony Massey, president and chief operating officer of Massey Services, Orlando, Fla. “Al was loved and respected by the Massey Services family and the pest management industry and he will be sincerely missed.”

After graduating from Tuskegee University in 1972, Moore joined the Peace Corps, teaching science and physical education classes in West Africa for three years. In recent years he worked as a community volunteer, organizing and supervising local food drives. Moore also was active in his church, serving as a deacon and overseeing a mentoring program for young men.

In addition, he was Region 7 Director of the Georgia Pest Control Association (GPCA) and he chaired the GPCA Forms Committee. 

Moore is survived by his wife, Connie; sons Malcolm and Marcus; daughter Liva; and five grandchildren.
