James Moffit

Aug. 14, 1944 –– Sept. 23, 2017

Jim Moffit of Enterprise, passed away Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017.

Jim had a passion for the outdoors even as a young boy growing up in La Grande. He loved to hunt, fish, camp and hike mountains.

He was able to work in the outdoors for the majority of his career with the U.S. Forest Service in scenic places he enjoyed exploring.

Jim was married to his wife Judy for 51 years, and they lived mostly in Alaska raising their daughter and experiencing many adventures, eventually moving back to Eastern Oregon a few years ago. He built beautiful canoes, was a wonderful storyteller, an avid reader and took great care in all that he did.

Jim is survived by his wife, Judy; his daughter, Lindy; his son-in-law, Jon; and his granddaughter Keira. He will be missed by the many people whose lives he touched. The fires he carefully built for many hot dog roasts over the years will warm all of our hearts in his memory.

Per his wishes, a memorial will be planned for a later time to celebrate his life and to spread his ashes in the Wallowa Mountains.

Bollman Funeral Home was in charge of cremation.
