He passed away peacefully on Friday, March 24, 2023, at his home in Hawaii, according to the foundation.

In July 1968, Moore and his longtime friend Robert Noyce established Intel. Prior to taking office as president in 1975, Moore was executive vice president.

Throughout his life, Moore also gave his attention and effort to philanthropy, notably to the advancement of science, the environment, and patient care.

He founded the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation with his wife of 72 years, which has given more than $5.1 billion to charitable causes since its inception in 2000.

Harvey Fineberg, the president of the foundation, said, "Those of us who have known Gordon and have worked with him will long be impressed by his intelligence,

humility, and generosity." The remarkable invention and technological advancements that influence our daily lives were made possible by Gordon's vision and his life's work,

despite the fact that he never sought to be a household name. But, his impact extends far beyond these illustrious accomplishments.
