Tribute & Message From The Family

Raymond Moretti, Sr. peacefully passed away on March 13, 2022 surrounded by his loved ones. Ray was 94 years old and has now joined his beloved wife, Mary Jane (Rock) who preceded him in death.

He is survived by his his children, Raymond Jr. and Cathryn (Henry).

Ray was born to Joseph and Mary Josephine Moretti, Sr. on September 19, 1927 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was educated in the public school system and also played for Our Lady of Pompeii CYO teams as a young boy. As he got older, he then began coaching neighborhood football teams.

After retirement, he decided to reside full time at our vacation house in Cape May, NJ where he fished, fished, and did more fishing! He and his fishing buddies would meet up 3 times a day and fish for hours at a time. But once he started getting older and started to suffer from different ailments, he then moved back to Philadelphia, to be closer to his children, which he did until his death.

Ray was the last surviving sibling of his 6 brothers and one sister. He is now at "home" with his wife, his siblings and the many relatives and friends that left us too soon.
