James Walter Moore, 60, born June 10, 1951, Crescent City, to Robert and Eva Moore, passed away June 9, 2012, Crescent City. Jim took pride in being a life-long resident of Del Norte County. He  attended and graduated from both St. Joseph Catholic School and class of 1969 Del Norte High. Jim worked at Simpson Timber for 20 years as a caterpillar operator. He was a good provider for his family. He grew up in an Irish Catholic family and  was the eldest son of five siblings. Jim was a skilled outdoorsman, who enjoyed playing baseball, softball, basketball, Mycophile, vegetable gardening, gundogs, trail horses, cribbage, canning, wood carving and the Oakland A’s. Jim loved to help and was one to smile and laugh with anyone. He will be missed by many and was misunderstood by few.
