BRANSON, Mo – The City of Branson expresses its sincere condolences to the friends and family of former Branson Alderman and local economic development pioneer, Albert “Al” Moon who passed away at 96 years old.
Moon served as an Alderman for Ward 1 for one term from 1991 to 1993 and again from 1996 to 2001. Moon also served as the President of the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, was on the Missouri Economic Development Council and the Southern Economic Development Council. With all his work and dedication he poured into the community, he became known as a pioneer for economic and business development in the Branson/Hollister area.
His dedication stemmed from a love of his community. When asked for a City employee newsletter about what he likes most about living and working in Branson, he responded, “The people.”
“Moon’s passing is quite sad. I was blessed to have been Al and Donna Moon’s neighbor for 15 years,” said Branson Mayor, Larry Milton. “He was a problem solver and worked tirelessly to make Branson the best it could be. I learned so much from Al and respected him immensely,” said Mayor Milton.
Moon is survived by his daughter Alice Ann Moon-Fanelli and by the longtime love of his life, Donna Moon.
