Louis Moore, a Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker who was killed in an Astoria subway station while on the job, was laid to rest Wednesday.

Family, friends and co-workers gathered at Roy L. Gilmore's Funeral Home in the St. Albans section of Queens to say their final goodbyes.

Moore was hit by an oncoming train last week when his tool bag got caught while he was walking on the catwalk at the 46th Street station.

Co-workers said the fatal accident proves the danger of their jobs.

"He's a good guy, hard worker, always happy, always smiling, always had a good story to tell and unfortunately this happened," said transit worker Bob Mallon.

"Louis Moore went to work, like any other transit worker. He did his day's work and he expected to come home at the end of the night and see his family," said transit worker John Chiarello. "This tragic accident just took him away from us, and again, we mourn the loss of our brother."

Moore is survived by his three children.
