I have many fond memories vistiting with the Moore family, but visiting over the holidays and watching Ohio State football at their house will not be forgotten. Mr. Moore was a man of few words, but when he said something, you listened. He demanded respect, and he got it. Betty, Rose, Erica, and the rest of the Moore clan, I am deeply sorry for your loss. He will be missed dearly by all that knew him.

What a great person to have had in my life. Mr. Moore, as I knew him, was always courteous, kind and a great roll model for a young little neighbor boy playing next door. God bless you Mr. Moore. Til we meet again.

To the Moore family,

I remember a happy, easy going neighbor that handled with such grace things like a golf ball going through the Moore kitchen window. The next thing Jim saw after I used a 9 iron in stead of the recommended pitching wedge at the Evans driving range (ie...our back yard) was a 12 y/o (me) neighbor knocking at his door, claiming the it was extremely windy out today. So today I toast Jim Moore....Toad Hall and the wonderful Moore family.....miss you all..

Michael A Evans and the Evans family.
