John E. Moore, Sr.
 

John E. Moore, Sr. (1923-), a World War II veteran and former chief of civilian personnel at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, has given more than 40 years of volunteer leadership to Montgomery County’s corporate, non-profit, local government, faith-based and grassroots organizations. He says he focuses on the “Three Fs” of community volunteering: Focus on what you want to do, Function, and Finish. Clearly he is a master of all three stages, and many local and regional groups have taken advantage of his expertise and devotion to working for his community. He has served on a number of organizations devoted to education, job training, self-sufficiency, health and human services including the Board of Sinclair Community College, Parity Inc., which he founded and co-chairs, and the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council. He has received countless honors and awards. John Moore Sr. is the embodiment of volunteerism, community involvement and integrity.–Inducted: 2003
