Obituary for Arthur L. Moran

WORCESTER: Arthur L. Moran, 95, peacefully passed away on February 6 at home surrounded by his loving family.

Arthur, son of Peter J. and Helen Wallace Moran, was born in Worcester and lived there his entire life. He was predeceased by his wife of 67 years, Pauline (2015) and his daughter Laurie Moran (2022), his three brothers, Peter Moran, Austin J. Moran, and Frank Moran. He is survived by his daughter, Dr. Wendy J. Moran (State College, PA) and his son, Kelly B. Moran and his wife, Dr. Carol Morello VMD (Wilbraham, MA). He leaves his grandchildren, Evan Moran (Laura Savino) from Seattle, WA and Brian Moran (Stacy) from Macungie, PA and four great grandchildren, Thomas, Joseph, Arthur, and Miles. He sadly leaves his sister-in-law, Susan Dauphinais Boucher and cousin Rita Hassett along with nieces Cherie Boucher Kent (Steve), Christi Chludenski (Chet) and nephew Scott Boucher (Kristin) along with extended family members Karen Kazarian, Nancy Lucier, Yagoda Madjkowska, and Michelle Diegnan. Uncle Arthur will be missed by his nieces Linda Moran Scanlon and Lorraine Moran Scola.

Arthur grew up on Grafton Hill in Worcester. He attended St Stephen’s school. In his early teens, he delivered bread for Widoff’s Bakery before joining the Navy in WWII. He met the love of his life, Pauline at Johnny Hines. He spent 4 years in the Navy where his tour took him to the Philippines. After the war, he returned to Worcester and became a machine tool craftsman for Heald Machine Company. As he was adept and skilled at his work, he was often selected to represent the company at various jobs both domestically and internationally including locations such as Russia and Romania. During this time, they spent 67 years together enjoying dancing, raising a family, building a house and traveling to 48 of 50 states. Arthur was dedicated to caring for Pauline in her later years until her death.

Arthur enjoyed planning his gardens, robust discussions on politics and current events, growing flowers and vegetables, everything Irish, and looking forward to holidays when the entire family would re-unite. Last year he enjoyed a baseball game at the new Polar Park. He will be greatly missed by his family. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at Beacon Hospice, FCP Live-in Care, and especially our thanks to CNA Shelly Philip for her loving care.

All are welcome to gather with Arthur's family and friends Friday February 10th from 4pm to 6pm at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N. Grafton, MA 01536. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday February 11th at 10:00am at Immaculate Conception Church 353 Grove St. Worcester, MA 01605. Final rest will will follow at Notre Dame Mausoleum in Worcester. A Book of Memories to share a message with Arthur's family is available online at

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields, and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
