HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
The man whose vision of Huntsville's expansion led to the founding of Research Park has died.
Dr. Joseph C. Moquin was Chief Management Engineer of the Army Ordinance Missile Command from its establishment in 1958 until he left in 1959 to join Brown Engineering at a time of that company's rapid growth.
Moquin devised an expansion plan in which the Huntsville City Council re-zoned over 3,000 acres on the west edge of town to attract other aerospace and technology companies. The area soon became known as Huntsville Research Park, later re-named Cummings Research Park.
He was promoted to President of Brown Engineering in 1966 and then Chief Executive Officer until his retirement in 1989.
Today, Research Park houses hundreds of companies, harboring tens of thousands of employees, most of whom provide support for Army missile and NASA space programs.
Visitation will be Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Madison. Funerall mass will be Friday at 10 a.m. at the church.
