Jimmie was born in Pasadena, Texas, on April 5, 1957 to G.D. Moore and Rebecca Miller Moore. He is preceded in death by his father, G.D. Moore; his mother, Rebecca Bartholf; and nephew, Chet Edwards; and many aunts and uncles.

As a young man, Jimmie loved baseball. He attended Galena Park High School where he excelled in choir, and his love of music stayed with him throughout his life. You would find Jimmie listening to his favorite tunes, with a wide variety of genres, enjoying fresh air on his porch while waving to his neighbors. In fact, he was lovingly known as “the mayor” of his neighborhood.
Jimmie never met a stranger. He loved everyone he met. He made many friendships from all stages of life, cities, and throughout his career. Jimmie especially loved the game of golf where he made lifelong friends on the golf course.
Jimmie had a work ethic unlike any other. He started off mowing lawns for neighbors as a child until he saved up to buy his first car when he received his driver’s license, a brand new Barracuda. Jimmie also purchased his first home shortly after graduating high school. During his career, he received many promotions and awards for excellence. He genuinely cared about his colleagues and customers and considered each to be family.
What Jimmie loved most in life was his family. He was a loving husband who would do anything for his wife. He loved all three of his children and would proudly tell stories about them everywhere he went.
