To the Moore family-I am sorry to see that Jim has passed on. I worked for him many years, and, was at his retirement party years ago. He was a super nice guy that I enjoyed working for, and, chatting with at holiday parties after his retirement. He Was just a plain old nice person that I’m sure you were proud to have in your lives. May he rest in peace. Sincerely, Christopher V. Sakos (Retired pipefitter L.U. 475)

Jim was a good natured, genuine friend who loved to share his love of sailing with others. One of the great thrills of my life was sailing with him from the Jersey shore to New York Harbor for Operation Sail 2000 and spending a few nights anchored in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. We watched the greatest nautical spectacle ever by day and a tremendous fireworks display by night...an unforgetable memory.
