Mr Moritz was a fun teacher with a huge head of hair. He not only taught my older sister Carolyn but my mom too when she went to night school to get her diploma. I remember him at her graduation party. Because I knew him before I had him he was kind of like a family friend so I wasn't intimidated by that booming voice. And he had a great sense of humor. He really helped me appreciate what he taught.

Mr. Moritz was one of my most respected teachers! He was strict yet gentle(if that makes any sense). Not a lot of teachers stand out in my memory, but he is one that has. He definitely had an impact on me. Condolences to his family/friends
He was a good man(coming from what was a not so good kid)

Our Dad, best friend, a very good man was laid to rest today. He loved a good homemade meal and anything chocolate!
Our anchor here on Earth has gone to Heaven to sing with the Angels.
We are proud of the life he lived. We know his friends will miss his good will and humor.
We will miss him on Sunday at our dinner table. I will miss his voice when times get rough and his steady guidance.
Heidi dog will miss her Grampie.
He knows we love him now and forever.

John was as good a brother and friend to me as anyone could hope for. Despite being in 8th grade when he was a senior in high school, he limited the grief heaped upon me by his buddies as best he could. Even if we hadn't been in touch for a long period of time, we could pick up where we had left off as if it had only been a few days. Rest well, dear brother. You had a wonderful life and stood strong in the face of every adversity you faced.
