OBITUARY

Wayne W. Moshier

August 23, 1931April 29, 2021

On Thursday, April 29, 2021, Wayne W. Moshier passed away at his home in Old Tappan, NJ. Wayne was born on August 23, 1931 in Long Branch NJ and along with his brother, Kent, sons of Stephen and Isabel Moshier, grew up in Hawthorne, NJ. He received his college degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University following his service in the Korean War, where he was awarded the Bronze Star. Wayne married Mary Elizabeth Braun on September 25, 1954. Together, they lived in Hawthorne NJ and later in Pearl River and Nanuet, NY where they raised five children: Donna Coffey (Richard), Stephen Moshier (deceased)(Robin), Barbara Harrington (Kelly), Mark Moshier (Krista) and Carolyn Moshier. He was the proud Grandfather of twelve Grandchildren: Sean(Gabrielle), Caitlin (Chuck), Kyle, Karlee, Kameron, Mark, Rob (Sara), Alison, Wesley, Davis, Nicole, Braun and three Great-Grandchildren (Brielle, Richard Sean, Molly) Wayne was an avid sportsman. From his playing days in high school, to coaching CYO basketball and managing numerous Nanuet Little League teams, sports was his passion. Following his coaching days, he loved nothing more than watching his grandchildren play sports and he made every effort to attend as many of their games as possible, even into his 80’s. His love of Syracuse and FDU basketball was unmatched and, unfortunately, he led most of us down the path of becoming frustrated Jets fans. Wayne also loved to travel. He was fortunate that his job afforded he and Mary the opportunity to experience the world and he might tell you his favorite place was Munich, Germany. He loved his summers on Long Beach Island and his happiest times were when the whole family gathered for a weekend of frivolity. Wayne exemplified his leadership abilities in holding several offices of distinction. In addition to his professional life, where he would become the President of SST Corporation (NJ), Wayne was a Grand Knight in the Knights of Columbus and President of the Nanuet Little League. Wayne’s family and friends will miss his loyalty, dedication to family, generosity and his dry, but witty, sense of humor. And anyone who was lucky enough to witness his hysterical laughing from the Jerky Boys will long remember Wayne really liked having a good time (and a cold beer)! A mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30am on Friday, May 7th at St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church in Old Tappan, NJ followed by a private memorial for the family. In remembrance of Wayne’s life and his service to his country, the family asks that any charitable donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project using the following link: https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org/

I am already missing my Uncle Wayne tremendously. As my godfather I always felt that he had an extra eye out for me. He and my Aunt Mary gave me a safe place to fall many times with extra love and support and lots of laughter. You had to be ready for that Moshier wit and sarcasm and as I got older I learned I could give it back and would often get a chuckle. We always ended our goodbyes with a kiss on his head, in person or virtually with my aunt’s assistance. He moaned but still let me do it. I’m sending those kisses to heaven now and know he’s catching them.

I really met my brother-in-law Wayne in Costa Rica, where he showed up, out of the blue, at our condo in Playa del Coco. We were floored to say the least, and I was a bit more than miffed that someone, anyone, had "found" us in our exotic and far off world. Not only did he show up, he bought a condo a hundred yards from our tropical "getaway " . Grrr. As time went on, years of circling each others' impossibly different personal world views, Wayne and I, thrust together by our wives (our better angels), became friends. My lesson in acceptance was shared by Wayne, our differences gradually receded, and our appreciation for each other's human sameness came to the fore of our awkward relationship. Even the awkwardness eventually drifted away and our times together became easy, and fun. I knew nothing of Wayne's long family life, or of his considerable successes in "the real world". Wayne and I met and grew together in Exotica, unfettered by intimacies of the real world, where we were free to explore the possibilities of the unknown - each other. We became friends.
