My deepest condolences to Jim’s family. He was a great guy.
Gary Montague says
My thoughts and prayers are with Jim and his family. Jim couldn’t drive his 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner and he sold it to me. I took it to car shows. Jim followed me on Facebook and his old car when I posted pictures. The car is being well taken care of. God Bless Jim Moyer 🙏

My deepest sympathies to Jim’s family. My parents and Jim’s parents were very good friends years ago and Jim and I were in the same class of 1973. Rest in heavenly peace,Jim.
Jim & Sally Scobey says
I have known Jim since he was little having worked for his parents. He was a great guy and will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of loss.
James Huneck says
Since I met Jim, he was called BIG JIM and I was called LITTLE JIM. I’ve known him for twenty-eight years. We enjoyed hiding from our boss at work and hunted deer on the farm almost every hunting season. Sometimes we just sat down together to drink beer and talk anything. I am thinking of him often of the good memories we had shared together, especially when I’m out in the woods hunting.
My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to Jim’s kids and family. We all will surely miss Jim.
Rest In Peace my very good friend.
Kirk Van Gilder says
A long distance condolence for the Family of Jim Moyer. A great guy. We all used to burn out of band practice to haul ass to Burger Chef for lunch. Between myself, Jim, Doug, and Jeff Motts we must have had 200 Burger Chef Frisbees that they gave away as plates. I sorry to hear of Jim’s passing but he will be fondly remembered by all of us that had encounters with Jim.
Diane Moyer Johnson says
That’s where all those frisbees came from.😁 Thank you Kirk, Jeff couldn’t make it here either but we have so many good memories.❤️
Justin Shortt says
I spent many nights at Jim’s home in Argos as a kid. He had one of the coolest toy collections I’ve ever seen. Every piece had a story and he was more than willing to share that story with my brother and I. He will be missed.
Jeannette Davis (Jenny) says
I was sorry to hear Jim had passed away. I have lived in Florida now for 21 years, so it had been years since we last spoke. Our last correspondence was a letter he wrote me while living here. Jim always made me laugh and he was a kind person. I will always think of him and chuckle to myself about something he said or did. He will be missed. May he rest In Peace! 💐 ✌️ ☮️
