Obituary of Adelbert Gene Moroski
Gene Moroski, 92, of Ashtabula, died unexpectedly on Friday, August 2, 2019 at home.
Born on January 22, 1927 to John and Helen (Dodge) Moroski, in Monroe Township, Gene grew up on Conneaut and was raised by his grandparents.
He graduated from Kingsville High School and retired from Frank Fortune Grocery Co. in 1989.
As the las living founder of the original Happy Hearts School and the first president of the parent council, Gene worked tirelessly to organize a school that would accept his son Larry, who was born with Down Syndrome.
Gene's passion was music. He was a working musician from his high school years until his death. He performed in many dance bands over his long career. The best known recently was "Boss Music" which was formed as the house band when he and Linda owned and operated Jewwls Dance Hall in the 1970's.
His last gig was as the musician of the Kingsville Presbyterian Church, from which he planned to retire on August 11th.
Gene was a life member of the Musician's Union Local #118 and was very proud of his Gold Card.
He was also a longtime member of the FOPA #94 and served as a trustee.
In his later years, he enjoyed reading, antique car shows and passing out pens to everyone he encountered.
Gene deeply loved God, family, music and animals of all kind.
