We can all count on one hand the very small number of people who during our lives had a profound influence on how our journeys would progress. John Moore was one of those people in my life. So many distant memories of John so easily recalled! It’s been over 35 years since my then-future bride Sherry Gerczak and John’s daughter Kathy worked together at an insurance company. They became friends and soon her husband Gary and I did, as well. I had just begun my career as a welder in 1978 when Kathy and Gary were kind enough to put in a good word for me with John who was the Superintendent of American Welding. Probably against his better judgement he hired me anyway and before you know it, ten years had passed and John retired. We were happy for him, but the shop was never the same after he was gone. Those ten years were a great period of learning for me because when he hired me I tried his patience and that of everyone I worked with. But John stayed the course and led by example, setting the bar high on the ‘Heavy Side’ at American. That crew, hand-picked by John, was the hardest working group of men I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. At his core John seemed to have a set of uncompromising values which in retrospect I believe were likely honed by his Catholic faith. In fact, the last time I saw Don Green, one of John’s senior men, we raised our glasses in a toast to John for what he created in that shop because there was a sense of pride not only in how much we produced, but how well we produced it. I’ll always remember when, after having worked for John for seven years, one day he stopped by the job I welded earlier and closely examined my handiwork. He asked me if it was me who had done the work and I replied that I had. John simply said, ‘Nice job’ and walked away. I know I’m a better man for having worked for John Moore. Sherry and I would like to extend our sincere condolences to John’s entire family and we’ll remember him in our prayers.

Mr John Tomas Moore.

We never had the pleasure to meet U.
But we know you amazing daughter Reeni and here fantastic husband Kevin.
And it is hard for us to be so far away on this moment.

Reeni told me some thing about U , and it feels that I know U just a little bit.
I light a candle for you everyday, and wish everybody a lot of strength the next view days..

And I like to say:
Those we love, don’t go away.
The walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard,but always there.
Still loved, still missed, still very dear.
R.I.P.

Ineke and Ton…
