In Memory of

James “Jim” Moore

March 24, 1949 - January 12, 2022


James “Jim” Moore passed away January 12, 2022. Funeral Services will be 11:00 AM, Monday, January 17, 2022 at Langsford Funeral Home, Lee’s Summit, Missouri.

Jim was born March 24, 1949 in Gardner, Kansas. He was married to the girl of his dreams and his best friend, Sharon, for 48 years. Jim grew up in the little town of Gardner, Kansas and spent a lot of time on the farm before moving to Lee’s Summit in 1984. He worked in banking for nearly half a century as a commercial lender and earned an advanced degree from the prestigious Stonier School of Banking from Rutgers University. Banking was his ministry in which he was able to impact many lives and make numerous, life-long friends. Most importantly, he loved the Lord. He was a beloved and faithful husband, father and friend.

He was preceded in death by his father Alva Dean (A.D), his mother Dorothy (Dot), and his brother Steve. Survivors include his wife Sharon, his daughter Kelly, his son Michael and daughter-in-law Valli of Fort Belvoir, VA, and his two grand-daughters Trinity Skye and Zoe Grace.

Jim loved his family with all his heart and he held his friends close to his heart. He wanted us to know and experience the love of our Heavenly FATHER and to know the joy of GOD’S love and be encouraged and strengthened by it. A favorite verse is John 3:16 “For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON…” Jim’s love for each of us and the LORD was strong and will not fade. He is seeing THE SAVIOR face to face and seeing again those loved ones who went before.

Thank you all for your love and kindness and prayers.

With love in CHRIST,

The Jim Moore family

My heart aches for your loss. Jim was not only my mentor, but my friend. And he was one of the greatest men I knew. He was always so proud of you and his family, willing to share stories of what was going on in your lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am comforted in knowing how strong his faith was and that he is home.

With love,
Eric Geschwind

Sharon and family, I was so sad to hear about Jim’s passing. I was so blessed to have worked for him for several years. I have so many wonderful memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Words cannot express my sadness over the passing of my friend Jim. Jim and I worked together as a team for years at Bannister Bank.
Jim always had a kind and gentle God like spirit. He lived his life to glorify God. My prayers go out to Sharon and family. God Bless

Our hearts go out to you with deepest sympathy.
All our love,
Bob, Beth, Carl and Kipp

My heart just aches at the thought of Jim’s passing. Then, I’m quickly reminded of the reality that for Jim, being absent from the body means that he’s in the presence of his Lord in heaven, who he loved so much! Sharon, Karen and I are covering you, and your family in prayer.

Dear Sharon,
My thoughts and prayers for you and family.
Jim was a wonderful and kind man, and was a true beacon of Jesus Christ. His life example was amazing. I love playing music with him. A very humble yet talented man. Miss him!
Kindest regards,

Sharon, I worked with Jim at Bannister Bank alongside Sandy, Don, Ann and many others. Jim wasn’t just a co-worker, he was a good friend. Before he retired, we ate lunch together about once a month and that is when he convinced me to buy his dad’s home on Donovan. He was alway in my corner with me and not behind me.

I never thought this day would happen. I know he was one of the “Good Ones” and is in heaven, but we all will miss his voice, his smile and most of all, his friendship. Sharon, I am praying for you, Kelly and Michael in hopes that God will heal the hurt and pain that you are feeling. I will remember Jim for the rest of my life and continue to pray for him as I know he would have for me.

Rest In Peace, old friend! You are already missed!


We are saddened to hear this news. Jim was a FPC and Gardner Elementary through High School friend. He and I went to Tarkio College our freshman year. My boyfriend, Jim Anderson, came for a week-end and he stayed in Jim’s (M.) dorm room. Jim Moore’s dorm roommate… Bill Claassen, came from Newton, KS, where we have now lived 38 years. In the more recent history, I’ve seen Bill a few times and Jim just briefly at his mother’s memorial. His tribute was very nice and a wonderful testament to his faith.
Well done good and faithful servant, Jim Moore.

This was a good man. He was someone who lead by example and loved the Lord. He will truly be missed, but will always have him in my heart and will see him again in heaven.

Sharon and family,
We’re deeply saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. We love you guys and enjoyed our fellowship with you! Jim was one of Billy’s bass guitar heroes! He will be missed here but is playing directly in the presence of his Lord and Savior now! Praying for your peace and comfort! Looking forward to our grand reunion!!
Love you,
Billy and Elaine Mayor
