John Moore Jr., 63, of Port Monmouth, passed away peacefully at home Nov. 25. He was born in New York City where he resided until the age of 17, at which time he moved to Keansburg with his family.
John graduated from Keansburg High School and lived in Monmouth County for many years. He was an iron worker for over 35 years for Local 40, retiring in 2004.
