Alexander Moorhead Obituary, Death – St. Croix— The President of the Senate, Novelle E. Francis, Jr., expressed his sorrow over the passing of former Senator Alexander Moorhead, Jr., on Sunday. Francis Jr. was Moorhead’s successor. During the ninth, tenth, and eleventh sessions of the legislature, Moorhead served as a representative.
Francis stated that one of Mr. Moorhead’s responsibilities in this role entailed working closely with a variety of community organizations in addition to the government. Because of his assistance at the VIPD, investigators were given the opportunity to receive training. In addition, Mr. Moorhead was instrumental in the funding of the VIPD’s DNA labs, which are still in use to this day. This occurred at a time when the territory was having difficulty convincing the FBI to conduct its crime scene analysis, and Mr. Moorhead helped the territory overcome this obstacle.
During Moorhead’s final term in the Senate, he not only served as a senator, but he also served as the Minority Leader of the Senate. Senator Francis made the observation that Governor Moorhead exemplified the qualities of a statesman and a public servant by prioritizing the requirements of the Virgin Islands over any political considerations that might have been relevant at the time. Because of his dedication and contributions, there will be a significant void in our society after he passes away. He will be sorely missed in our lives.
After leaving his position in the Legislative Branch, Mr. Moorhead is best known for his work at the Hess Oil (later HOVENSA) refinery on St. Croix. There, he served as Vice President of Government Affairs, Community Relations, and Secretary until his retirement in June of 2010, at which point he stepped down from his positions. In this capacity, he was also accountable for supervising the environmental and safety programs that were in place at the company.
