Jim was an extraordinary man possessing great intelligence, wisdom, and sense of humor, I was privileged to work for Jim during my last years of my Ryder career and found him to be very fair and most importantly a very good man. He was the emcee at my Ryder retirement party in February 2012 and he handled the occasion with his great wit and charm and made the event a memorable for my wife and me.
I send my condolences to his family of whom he spoke so many times in a loving fashion. My life has been definitely enriched by knowing Jim Moore.

It was a privilage and inspirational to have worked with Jim over the last fifteen years. His innovativeness and wisdom help to craft many a deal and helped me personally develop into a better person. I will miss his humor, his leadership and the head of cauliflower with hummus.

He was very proud of his family and spoke of them often. He will be missed and remembered by me forever.

It is with deep regret that I will not be able to attend Saturday as I'm committed to doing a Community Breakfast. I'm thankful that I was able to see Jimmy and Carol at Lloyd and Jane's reception this summer in Lowville. Carol my prayers will be for you and your family at this time of grief. In soul and mind I will be with everyone of the family on Saturday and I'll be remembering that smiling youngster playing cowboys and Indians with his toy guns, his always beautiful smile. Memories are wonderful, It seems like only yesterday I came over to Heuvelton from college to watch the children. We lost a another wonderful family member who has gone on to join God in Heaven and other loved family members.. Love Patty Regan
