J. David Moore

Published 3:39 pm Wednesday, April 6, 2016

A graveside service for J. David Moore, 64, of Jasper will be 11:00 am Friday, March 25, 2016 at the Christian Cemetery in Nacogdoches, TX under the arrangement of Farmer Funeral Home in Silsbee.

Mr. Moore died March 23, 2016 at Baptist Hospital in Beaumont.

David was a native of Port Neches where he practiced law for both the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office and in private practice. He retired in Jasper, TX. Big Dave, as many knew him, was quick to give advice if he felt it was needed. He was a shoulder for many to lean on and an ear to speak to, but mostly he was one to give the advice that no one else could give. He will be missed by many, including his loving family, friends and those who looked to him as a father figure.
