James 'Jim' Noel Moore, 76, died Sunday, May 15, 2022, at his home.
He was born Nov. 16, 1945, to Noel and Helen (Scott) Moore in Vancouver, Wash. He joined brothers, Joe and Harry, and sister, Jackie.
After high school, he enlisted in the Army in January 1965 and was promoted to sergeant in Vietnam in December 1966. After being honorably discharged in 1967, he moved back to Bainville.
On May 6, 1966, he married Barbara Coulston. To this union, two sons were born, Jeff and Jason. After moving many times, they finally settled in Sidney.
He was a “jack of all trades” and worked many different jobs from diesel mechanic to truck driver. In 1998, he and Jeff started a trucking company, J. Moore Enterprises. After Jim retired, he drove truck for many area farmers.
He was a very giving person and always took care of everyone else before himself. He was very devoted to giving to many different charities, especially St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the Humane Society.
For most of his life, he always had a dog or two, usually a springer spaniel as those were his favorite. No matter where he went, he always took his dogs with him.
He loved the outdoors. He especially loved hunting and fishing. When Jim lived in western Montana, he looked forward to the annual hunting trips when his sons, grandsons and family friends would come out.
Sturgis rallies were one of his favorite getaways. It was a place he could do or say anything and get away with it.
He will be remembered for his caring ways, his witty sense of humor and his “Hold on now, let’s just wait a minute” way of life.
He is survived by his children, Jeff Moore of Savage, Jason Moore of Phoenix, Ariz.; seven grandchildren; brother, Joe Moore of Waddington, N.Y.; and sister, Jackie Miller of Austin, Texas.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Harry Moore.
Services were held Friday May 20, at the Faith Fellowship Baptist Church in Bainville with Bryce Romo officiating.
