John Moore Passes Away

John Moore, a member of the Douglas MacArthur Class of 1965, died at a bit after midnight on Thursday, April 21, 2016, at the Northwestern Hospital, Chicago, Illinois. According, to Bunny and Mike Braughton, to whom John was a close lifelong friend, he had had "some serious health concerns this last year. He was in Chicago to see a specialist there."

John, at MacArthur, played football his freshman year, then switched to track as a sophomore, junior, and senior. He was part of Election Assembly as a junior.

For the 50th Reunion survey, John said he was living in Decatur, Illinois, and had worked as a Firestone employee. His first car after graduation was a 1950 Chevy.

John Michael Moore is survived by Bonnie, his wife of 47 years, three children, and four grandchildren.

John loved his family's pets.  Facebook, 2010.

The Braughtons and others express deep sorrow at the loss of John.

"We will miss him," wrote Bunny and Mike.

Donna Maddox sent along the "sad news," and said, "John was such a good guy and his wife Bonnie is a doll....We ran around with them when we lived in Decatur and Wayne hunted with John and Mike [Braughton]."

Our condolences to the Moores.
