Dr. Arnold Moses, 93, passed away on Wednesday, August 4. His family includes his daughters Linda (Arthur Gurevitch) Moses, Laurie (Richard Gordon) Moses, and Amy Moses; and his grandchildren Eric, Matthew, Jason, Jessie, and Samantha. He was pre-deceased by his wife Carol in December of 2011.

Arnold deeply cared for his family, community, patients, and country. Like his father, he had a long and wonderful life.

Arnold Moses was born in Newburgh, NY. After high school, at the age of 17, he enlisted in the US Army to serve his country. Afterwards, he attended Syracuse University where he earned a BS in Chemistry, magna cum laude, then a medical degree from SUNY Upstate Medical School, with honors. He proudly did his internship and residency in New York City at Monterfiore and Mt. Sinai Hospitals in endocrinology, then was recruited back to Syracuse for a lifetime of service to the medical and scientific communities. He was a distinguished service professor on the faculty at Upstate Medical Center where he served in many positions including the chief of the Clinical Research Center, taught medical students, residents and fellows, mentored junior faculty and cared for patients with thoughtfulness and compassion.

He was well known throughout Syracuse. He had many friends and loved playing tennis and swapping stories with them. The Moses family was one of the original members of Congregation Beth Shalom-Chevra Shas. His biggest joys were his children and grandchildren.

Funeral services were on Friday, August 6th at Congregation Beth Sholom-Chevra Shas in Syracuse; burial in Baron Hirsch Cemtery on Staten Island.

Our sincere condolences. Arnie was a wonderful scientist, physician, and person. We met the Moses family at the Vasopressin Meetings at Smuggler's Notch VT and had a wonderful time getting to know them and his daughter who was so kind to our then young son. Arnie's legacy in medicine and science is indelible and will live forever.
