The Association and its members very recently saw Joe and Carol Moore at the Concession & Hospitality Expo in Cincinnati just a week and a half ago, seemingly omnipresent at all conference functions. He and Carol even made an appearance on the Kisscam at the Great American Ballpark to the delight of the NAC members who attended the game between the Reds and the Cubs.
Joe Chabot of Moore Theatres in Kalamazoo, Michigan was a loyal supporter of NAC and had just begun his second year of a two-year term on the Board of Directors at the annual meeting on July 23, 20015 in Cincinnati.
Joe will be greatly missed by family, friends and associates in the movie exhibition and concession industries.

Bailee and I will miss you. You were always so good to us. You made us feel like family and we loved you as such. I am so glad God let our paths cross and we miss you dearly sweet Joe.
Joe Chabot was my mentor, customer and friend. He pushed my company in new directions; He let us test our software in his theaters. I will always be thankful for the time I got to spend with him and all his great advice. You will be missed.
I visited Joe and Carol several times. There theatres were run like no other theatres I have ever seen, economical yet used the best equipment. One of the only theatres I ever saw with multiple self serve Cretors equipment. I am very saddened by Joe’s passing. I always enjoyed talking and comparing notes at all the shows. Most importantly Joe and Carol brought all there employees to the NAC meetings and they bought auction items to supply to employees as incentives. I am so sorry for Joe’s passing.
