A sad day at MOO

2nd August 2012 by Richard

We were all incredibly shocked and saddened to learn this morning about the loss, in a tragic cycling accident, of one of our colleagues – our Community Manager, Dan Harris.

Dan looked after all things social media for MOO and was a popular, entertaining and much loved member of the MOO Crew.

There are no words that can truly express how much we’ll all miss him, and his infectious enthusiasm, warmth and passion for life.

Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends at this sad time.


UPDATED 3rd August 2012: Many of his friends and colleagues at MOO knew that Dan was an avid and incredibly safety conscious cyclist. He was always seen wearing a helmet whilst riding, and had recently expressed frustration with cyclists who endanger themselves and others by jumping red lights.

Dozens of the MOO Crew in our London office cycle to and from work, or have friends who do the same – all we can ask is that you take extra care on the roads. Thank you.


UPDATED 3rd August 2012: On behalf of the team here at MOO and the Harris family – a huge thank you for all of your kind words. Dan’s family have sent us a note to further express their thanks, here.

    A Moo fan and cycle commuter. My condolences for such a tragic and shocking loss. Take care all.

    Moo is a wonderful company, no doubt due to a lot of great employees. My heart goes out to those whose lives are a little less full because Dan is no longer a part of it.

    I am a new Moo client/lover and realized immediately what a special company this is.

    It sounds like Dan was a special and very loved guy. I don’t really know what to say other than I am saddened by his tragic loss, I did not know him, but you don’t have to, to be affected. Peace to all that were close to him, and know random people like me care.

  10. rena:

    How sad and tragic. I have been with the MOO family for 3 years and during that time I have enjoyed seeing my own business grown as much as seeing MOO grow. Dan left an indelible mark, and I wish his family and his friends comfort.

  11. Rosie:

  21. Christie Fidura:

    Just 3 short weeks ago, I met Dan for the first time. We met at Hoxton Grill for lunch, and immediately formed a great connection. I found him funny, warm, helpful, and kind, and I am devastated to hear of his loss. We’ve all lost a good one.

    Be careful out on those roads, kids.

    On behalf of myself and all my Adobe colleagues,

  22. Andreas:

    I’m a road cyclist. It truly pains me to read this. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  23. Writingprincess:

    So sorry for your loss and for Dan’s family. As a road cyclist I too am an advocate for safety. I live in Chicago and it’s such a dangerous city for cyclist. Here’s hoping that we can increase cycling safety all over the world!

  24. Susan Wai:

    I just want to say as a fan of Moo that I am deeply sorry for your loss, to all Dan’s friends, Moo family and family. I learnt of this sad news while I was away on my Honeymoon and was very moved even though I have never met Dan before.

    R.I.P. Dan
