JOBIT: Moore, Joseph M. [MC???? RIP]



Joseph Moore


Joseph M. Moore, 65, died on September 9, 2014 after a hard-fought battle with ALS.

He passed away peacefully at his home in New Fairfield, surrounded by his family. Born July 18, 1949 in Brooklyn, NY, to Thomas and Teresa Moore, Joe lived many years in Stuyvesant Town, Manhattan. He is an alumnus of Cardinal Hayes High School. He spent many summers at Camp Fordham, working and forming numerous lifelong friendships. Joe earned Bachelors and Masters degrees from Fordham University and Manhattan College.

He followed his passion and pursued a career in teaching. He worked in various NYC schools, including Immaculate Conception and St. Francis de Sales in Manhattan, St. Joseph By the Sea in Staten Island, and St Nicholas of Tolentine High School in the Bronx, where he spent eight happy years as teacher, assistant principal, and basketball coach, proudly leading three Tolentine teams all the way to CHSAA Championships in 1983, 1985, and 1988. Some of these students went on to national professional basketball careers. In 1990, Joe and his family relocated to New Fairfield, and Joe started a career teaching social studies at Somers Central School District in Somers, NY. Joe would remain at Somers High School until his retirement in 2011.

Joe loved life and embraced whatever opportunities came his way. Music was his passion, and he was a lifelong radio fan and supporter of local, live music. He also enjoyed taking guitar lessons for many years but, as self-proclaimed “King of the No-Talent Bums,” he dedicated himself to bringing people together through music, whether at home, in the classroom, or in his community, where he was a co-founder of Groovin’ in New Fairfield.

Nothing made Joe happier than spending time with “his girls.” This devoted husband and father leaves behind his wife of 29 years, Elizabeth “Betty” Moore (Hyde), their daughters Tara Moore and Katie Moore, and their dogs Benjy and Lexie, all of New Fairfield. Joe is also survived by his sister and her husband, Wendy and Ken Weber of North Plainfield, NJ, nephews Brian Weber and Matthew Weber, and niece Michelle (Weber) Taylor and her husband John Taylor. Joe is predeceased by his parents.

A natural teacher and a true people person, Joe was always ready with advice, stories, a friendly smile, and lots of his trademark “Dad jokes;” it’s no surprise that so many former students sought out “Mr. Moore” years (and even decades) after leaving his classroom.

Though his life was cruelly cut short by the ruthless torture that is ALS, Joe’s legacy of life, love, and music will live on, not only in his family and friends, but also in the generations of students whose lives he was so honored to have touched.

Viewing hours will be at Green Funeral Home, 57 Main St., Danbury, on Monday, September 15 from 4:00-8:00 PM. Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, September 16th, at 10:30 AM at St. Edward the Confessor Church, New Fairfield. In lieu of flowers, the Moore family requests donations to Regional Hospice of Western CT (http://regionalhospicect.org/), the ALS Association CT Chapter (http://webct.alsa.org), or a charity of your choosing, honoring Joe’s memory and spirit. The Moore family would like to express their sincere gratitude to nurse Joanne, aide Tweedy, and social worker Colleen, all from Regional Hospice, for their truly exceptional care, support, and compassion during these past six months.

Sister John Joseph was my freshman- and sophomore-year guidance counselor at Bishop Kearney H.S. and she was probably the happiest nun I ever met in my life. I didn’t know religious life could be so joyful until I met Sister John Joseph. She always had a hug and a smile (and a few Tootsie Rolls) for every student who crossed her path. She made everyone feel like they were special, like they mattered and that they were loved (by her and God). I can only imagine the hugs, smiles and Tootsie Rolls that God had waiting for her!
