James "Jim" Hugh Moffitt, 79, of Noblesville, passed away on Monday, November 5, 2018 at his home. He was born on December 30, 1938 to George and Esther (Clements) Moffitt in Carmel, Indiana.
A hunter, fisherman, pilot, woodworker…..a man of many talents.
Jim had broad experience in quality assurance, standards and specifications associated with the assembly and repair of electronic equipment. He retired from Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC) in Indianapolis (previously known as Naval Avionics) in 1993 after a 30-year Civil Service career. While at NAWC, Jim was Administrator of the Navy Mil-Std-2000 Training/Certification Center and served as one of the U.S. Navy’s technical representatives in developing related specifications and standards. During the last 5 years at NAWC, Jim held the position of Staff Consultant in the Quality Assurance Division and was designated by the Navy as DOD Expert Witness in Federal Court cases. After retiring, he accepted a position with Electronics Productivity Facility in Indianapolis where he provided technical update training to the instructor staff. Jim “retired” again in 1997 in order to spend more time with his family while continuing to provide training and consulting services to the industry on a part time basis as Moffitt Consulting Services. In addition to his participation in the development of numerous military and IPC specifications and standards, he has received the IPC President’s Award and several Distinguished Committee Services Awards for technical contributions to IPC projects.
