"I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Warren 'Pete' Moore, a fine human being and valued member of the Motown family," Gordy told Rolling Stone. "Pete was an original member of my very first group, the Miracles. He was a quiet spirit with a wonderful Bass voice behind Smokey Robinson’s soft, distinctive lead vocals, and was co-writer on several of the Miracles hits."

Moore was also known for other work in the music industry besides his creativity with the Miracles. He also helped write songs that went on to become classics for other groups and singers. He even worked with The Temptations and Marvin Gaye.
