At Canavest, we were a relatively large and innovative client of IPSA’s in the 1970s and were early adopters of the network. Experimenting with early versions, we had to call upon Roger's expertise many times and constantly marveled at his ability to solve our problems without ever actually seeing the equipment (we must have been fairly good at providing the information he demanded). Our description of his abilities included claiming that he could sign a (1970s mind you) refrigerator onto the IPSA network - and now I have to ask, did he ever actually do that?

I was talking to Ken Iverson one day when Ken described an incident with Roger in the early stages of APL\360 development where the system faulted, and they called on Roger, who was actually asleep somewhere. Even though the interpreter listing was over 1300 pages long, Roger gave them the page number, the line on that page, and the change to the code. Ken said they halted the processor, fixed the line, resumed it, and it ran without fault. Ken had several Roger stories, I wish I could remember them all.

It would be quite something to have all the Roger stories compiled into a single volume. Amazing man!

Very sad to hear of Roger's passing. He was an inspiration to all of us at I.P. Sharp and I have many memories of Roger and his wit, his technical ability and his passion for doing everything the right way. Above all Roger was a kind person with an extraordinary mind. Rest in peace.

Lib Gibson said it all (thank you Lib) except to say that IPSA would have been a very different Company without Roger and perhaps could not have existed at all without him. It was Roger's technical brilliance which attracted so many other exceptional people, and that made the Company what it was. Thank you Roger. RIP.

Roger D. Moore
Thursday, November 16th, 1939 – Thursday, March 21st, 2019

As there was no such a successful I.P. Sharp Associates without Roger Moore; there was not quite so legendary a Roger D. Moore without the culture of I.P. Sharp Associates. IPSA was where, as noted by Roger Hui:

'Roger Moore was a vice president of I.P. Sharp Associates. What were Roger's responsibilities? I've heard it said by different people that “Roger Moore is the vice president of Roger Moore”.

IPSA, by attracting individuals that thrived in a non-hierarchical corporation, presented a community of coworkers in which Roger could be at his best. And after his retirement, Toronto presented a city where he could turn his support to the Arts, as well a time spent making a record of the achievements of Ferranti Packard with the FP6000 to APL and the IPSA net world wide communications network.

That Roger could migrate from his strong technical expertise, to taking his interest in musical causes to be such a strong supporter of these, giving many artists a “first big break” was remarkable and fortuitous for the Toronto arts community where he yet again became an admired, if eccentric, legend.

Kudos to Roger for all he did and his gracious support to so many.
