Moore, Charles J.
Binghamton, NY: Charles John Moore, 62, of Binghamton, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, July 7, 2014. Charlie was born and raised in Susquehanna, PA. He graduated from Susquehanna High School in 1970 with a passion for music and art. Charlie's favorite expression was that he would rather fail trying than fail to try. On August 16, 1975, he was in a tragic car accident at age 23 and as a result was a paraplegic for the rest of his life. His will to live on and enjoy life was his hallmark. He is predeceased by his parents, John and Mary and sister, Jackie. He is survived by his sister, Judy Seppa; three nephews, Justin, Matthew and Michael Seppa; niece, Tara Baker; cousin, Patrick McLaughlin; and dear friend, Melissa Mischke. Charlie will be missed by the Binghamton community who shared his love of art and music. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. John's Catholic Church, Susquehanna, PA, on Friday, July 11, 2014, at 10:30 a.m. with Rev. David Cramer officiating. Burial will be in the St. John's Cemetery, Susquehanna, PA. The family will receive friends at the Hennessey's Funeral Home, 747 Jackson Ave., Susquehanna, PA on Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
