Remembering Killington builder Richard Moore, 78


Richard Moore, of Glastonbury, Connecticut and Rutland, passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 8. He was the beloved husband of Helen Krzyczynski. Rick was born Jan. 26, 1945 in Prospect Park, Pennsylvania, to Noah and Hilda (Stahle) Moore.  In 1981 he founded Richard Moore Construction in Killington and served as its president until his retirement in 2022.  Moore Construction was known for building one-of-a-kind exceptional custom homes in the area but primarily Killington, a number of significant condominium communities and a number of commercial buildings and lodges associated with the Killington Ski Resort during its various stages of growth.  

Rick graduated from Temple University in 1967 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. Following graduation, he was employed for a number of years at Boeing Vertol, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, as a test engineer related to synchronization of rotors and armament on CH47 Chinooks during the Vietnam Tet Offensive.

Rick had great passion for skiing throughout North America and for sailing. As a member of Spray Beach Yacht Club, he was 1971 Eastern Regional champion in his Pacific Catamaran. Sailing continued on his beloved Celebrate on Lake Champlain and crewing on a number of Caribbean deliveries.  His new acquisition, Slip Away, proved to be an added enjoyment for Rick and Helen during retirement.  They enjoyed traveling together between the Antarctic and Arctic Circles and countries in between. He was also the 2023 trap champion of Woodstock VT Gun Club.  

Along with Helen, he leaves his sister, Linda Zoladkiewicz of Wilmington, DE, and her family.  

His funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 26, 2023, at Rutland Country Club, Rutland.  Remembrances may be made in his honor to Tunnels to Towers, t2t.org.
