|Info||Brian was one of seven children, four girls and three boys, of an Irish-Catholic family. He grew up in Oakland, California, and attended Christian Brothers High School in Sacramento, California. His father and both grandfathers were life-long employees of the Southern Pacific Railroad, mostly in northern California. Brian's father, Nicholas "Nick" Moore, worked 44 years for the SP railroad in railroad car maintenance becoming the youngest foreman, general foreman and master car repairer in mechanical maintenance. "Big Nick" was responsible, in 1960, for the "on time" campaign train of then presidential candidate John F. Kennedy, as the candidate traveled from the northern tip of California to its southern edge beyond San Diego. Brian's mother, Rose Cunningham Moore, was an executive secretary in the SF Ferry building in the late 1930's, until she married and then concentrated the remainder of her life in raising seven children. |
