Richard Horton Moore, 61, a technical writer with Computer Sciences Corp. in Suitland, died of cancer Jan. 30 at his home in Fredericksburg, where he had lived since 1986.

Mr. Moore worked for Computer Sciences for about three years. He was previously with Unisys Corp. for about 10 years.

He was born in Corpus Christi, Tex., and raised in Annandale. He graduated from Annandale High School in 1961.

He received an undergraduate degree from Duke University and a master's degree in English from the University of South Carolina.

He was a former Sunday school teacher at St. Matthias United Methodist Church in Fredericksburg; a member of Zion United Methodist Church in Spotsylvania; and author of a self-published children's book, "Sloppy," about two garbage cans that fall in love.

Survivors include his wife of 20 years, Jane Saverance Moore, and their two daughters, Amy F., and Alexis D., all of Fredericksburg; his parents, Malcolm and Louise Moore of Springfield; and two sisters, Marilyn McManis of Stafford and Kathryn Crowe of Greensboro, N.C.
