Spring Lake Heights - Bernard Joseph Moore, age 81, passed away on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at his home in Spring Lake Heights surrounded by his family. Bernie was born and raised in Newark. He was 1962 graduate of Mississippi State University. Upon graduation he proudly served as Lieutenant in the United States Air Force from 1963-1968, being awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal in 1965. He married his wife, Angela in 1965. Over the course of his military career, they lived in New York State, France and England before calling Spring Lake Heights home in 1968.

For 45 years, Bernie worked for the Department of Environmental Protection for the State of New Jersey.
