Obituary for James J. Moore
Weep not in tears of sorrow because I've gone away, but weep with tears of gladness for the peace I have today. I know your hearts are heavy with sorrow that you bear, but God has called me home, my place is ready there. On Saturday, October 30, 2021 a husband, brother, and uncle, Deacon James J. Moore “Jerry”, departed this life at Johnston Willis Hospital, Richmond Virginia and went home to be with the Lord.

Deacon James Jerome Moore, nicknamed “Jerry”, was born April 18, 1955, at St. Phillips Hospital-MCV, Richmond, VA, to the late James A. and Thelma Jordan Moore of Darvills, VA. In addition to his Parents, He was also predeceased by his Grandparents, Allie and Laurena Moore and James and Josephine Jordan.

James joined Shiloh Baptist Church-Dinwiddie at an early age. He attended Sunday School and Bible study and has taught during Vacation Bible School. He was a member of the Volunteer Choir and Shiloh Adult Ensemble. James was ordained as a Deacon of Shiloh Baptist Church-Dinwiddie on March 24, 2019 and served until his death.

James graduated from Dinwiddie County High School and continued his education at Virginia State College (University) and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration. He was employed as a General Manager with Sight and Sound (Circuit City) in Tidewater, VA. He retired from Haley Auto Mall of Farmville in 2018 as an Automotive Salesperson, where he received Salesman of the Year and numerous awards.

James was a person of moral character. He had a reverence for God and a believer in prayer. He took a lot of pride in doing things the right way. He was opinionated and an independent in his thinking. He loved people, was friendly, and was a great sport fan (Pittsburg Steelers).

He was a fighter and fought Cancer courageously until the end. We thank God for his life and with God’s love we will carry on.
