James Edward Moyer
James "Ed" Moyer, 65, of Sunbury, the eldest son of the late Marlin "Bucky" and Lois Jane (Focht) Moyer, passed away in his home on Feb. 4, 2020.

Ed was a "free spirit" with a passion for music and boating, and a deep love for his family, friends, and pets. Those who knew him are forever blessed with memories to fill their hearts and bring smiles to their faces, for his sense of humor and engaging energy made the simplest of moments special. Ed spent much of his life as a musician, performing with various bands whose members were like family to him, the most recent being Old School. He also found connections through his pool team at the East Ends, the bowling league at Post 44, and his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America.

Ed is survived by his children and grandchildren, Racheal, Matt, Michael, and Christian Spotts; Amanda, John Paul, and JoceLynn Shingara; Russ, Angela, Connor, Caleb, and Carter Treas; and Chelsea, Randy, Tika and Brad Baylor; his siblings Joyce and Mike Seno, Dave and Deb Moyer, and Mike and Pam Moyer; his dog, Taco, and cat, Jinx; as well as a host of beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.

A celebration of Ed's life will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 21, at the American Legion Post #44, 309 Point Township Drive, Northumberland. All are invited to attend.

Losing my dad is one of the toughest things I've faced so far in life. To go shoping with him the night before and the next day hes gone. It's so unreal. Hes touched so many lives throughout his life. I love you dad. Until I see you again. Please watch over the kids and i.

Just read the tributes to Ed below and you will understand what Ed meant to his family and friends. I spent many good years with the Ed and the crew in the third ward. Head quarters being at the Tom Inch homestead. There are way too many good times and awesome friends to mention in this space and there was never a shortage of good rock and roll. Thanks Dad and Mom inch for putting up with us. Rest in peace brother. See you when we get there.

Where do I start? It grieves me that another classmate has gone on to play music for God. Ed was a true friend when you needed one. I'll always remember the good times in school and the good ones after. May he rest in peace and forever be on my our minds.
