Mr. James Moore

February 14, 1950 ~ April 17, 2020 (age 70)


     James Moore, Sr., was born on February 14, 1950 to Tom and Hollis Moore. He departed this world on April 17, 2020 at Southeastern Hospital, Lumberton NC.

     James attended Rosenwald High School of Fairmont, NC. He worked at the Davis Trucking Company, Lumberton, N.C. for many years. Prior to his death he was still a very hard worker and worked for The Town of Fairmont, taking care of the town. He gained a lot of respect through his hard work and many grew to love and cherish him. He loved to work using his hands to fix things such as cars, mortorcycles, and anything broken that he could see had more use. He also loved cars, mortorcycles and seafood. Whenever he visited family in Washington, DC, he wanted his fix of shrimp and crabs. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Though he didn’t take any mess from anyone, he had a heart of gold. He especially loved spending time with his grandchildren, nieces and nephews throughout his life and they all loved him dearly for the funny sounds, funny faces and playfulness he shared with them. He also had a love for his grandchildren’s sporting events. He would always get on Duke about his son’s basketball and football games because he wanted to be present and involved. He just had an all around playful and joking spirit. Sometimes he had an interesting way of showing his love but it was definitely love nonetheless. It was his way of making other people laugh. He was kind hearted, genuine, and protective of his loved ones.

     James Moore, Sr. was preceded in death by his wife Sandra Moore and daughter Valaria Moore (Coot).

     He leaves to cherish his memory his children, James Moore, Jr. (Duke), Sonia Moore (Jitsy) and Shaundell Moore; siblings, Margaretta Moore, Sally Thompson, Shirley Moore, Paul Moore, Milton Moore, Arthur Brockington (Dutabug), grandchildren (9), great grandchildren (1), and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

A private grave side service will be held, with Rev. Jerry McCoy officiating
