Mr. Moore died Sunday morning, April 14, 2013. His body succumbed to cancer, but his spirit has been victoriously united with God.
Born in 1928 as a child of the Depression, he lived through America’s golden age. His family has resided in Hall County for several generations. He served in the United States Navy on the aircraft carrier Midway during the Korean War. After a 34-year career with the USDA, he retired in 1989 to enjoy his many hobbies including his garden, golf and spending quality time with his family and many friends. Mr. Moore was a graduate of Riverbend High School and a member of the Gainesville Masonic Lodge No. 219 F&AM, American Legion, Disabled American Veterans and St. Paul United Methodist Church. He was faithful in a land of faithlessness, moral in an age of immorality, kind and gentle in a nation that became self-centered. Beloved by many, his death has left a great void in the world.
Mr. Moore is survived by his wife of 65 years, Sarah Moore; son and daughter-in-law, Jim Jr. and Selena Moore; daughter and son-in-law, Jane and Tom Wood; grandchildren, James Moore III, Lauren Wood, Thomas Wood III, Derek Hunter; great-grandson, Joe Hunter; and his favorite niece, Gail Moore.
Memorials may be made to the St. Paul United Methodist Church Building Fund, 404 Washington St., Gainesville, GA 30501.
