On Monday, November 20, 2023, John William Moore, Sr., 84, of Wilmington, DE, departed quietly in the company of his devoted family.
Son of the late Joseph A. and Marie (Quigley) Moore, Sr., he was born on November 29, 1938, in Wilmington, DE. John served with honor in the US Army Reserves. Up until 1976, he was employed as an electrician for a family-run company. After that, he started work for the City of New Castle and remained there until his retirement in 2004.
John was a community friend who served with Wilmington Manor Fire Company, where at the age of 24 in 1964 he held the position of youngest president. John like to travel to new locations, go fishing, and boat in his own time. He cherished spending time with his family above all else.
