He was born December 31, 1952 in Portsmouth, Virginia to James and Joanne (Fey) Moore and was raised in Syracuse, New York. James married Susan Wetterauer on October, 19, 1980 in Peoria, Ill.

Also surviving are his sisters, Margaret Moore of New York, Mary (Robert) Gaynor of Wyoming as well as his two brothers Robert Moore of Kansas and Matthew Moore of New York. Preceding him in death were his parents and his father-in-law.
