Tribute & Message From The Family

Loving Husband, Father and Grandfather

Gerald "Jerry" Angelo Moscariello age 89 and life-long resident of West Concord passed away peacefully at his residence on Saturday, September 5, 2020. He was the husband of 68 years to Jean E. (Mitchell) Moscariello.

Born in West Concord he was the son of the late Carmella (Varalla) Moscariello and Antonio Moscariello. Raised and educated in West Concord, Jerry graduated from Concord High School in 1949. On August 17, 1952 Jerry and Jean married and they remained in West Concord to raise their loving family.

Jerry worked with his father on the family chicken farm for several years, then worked at his brother's hardware store, during that time he started "Jerry's Rentals" in the basement of the hardware store.

In 1967, Jerry and two of his brothers built a new building and started The Moscariello Brothers equipment store in Acton. Eventually Jerry's brothers retired and Jerry, Jean and their sons ran it until he retired. Two of their sons continued running the store after Jerry retired.

Jerry was very active playing sports his entire life. He also enjoyed playing cards, square dancing, bowling and fishing.

Jerry was a lifetime member of the Musketaquid Sportsman Club, a tambourine player with the "Concord Shakers", a hand bell ringer at the West Concord Union Church. He volunteered at the Council of Aging. For the past 20 years he hosted a Monday morning billiard and ping pong gathering with many friends, some he had known since high school.

Jerry was a "Jack of all Trades" and enjoyed helping out friends and relatives, especially his sons and daughter.

Along with his wife Jean, he is survived by his sons William M. Moscariello, Gerald E. Moscariello and his wife Paula(Simeone) Moscariello, Michael J. Moscariello, and daughter Diane M. (Moscariello) Welsh and her husband Charles Welsh, and grandchildren, Matthew R. Welsh and Michelle K. Welsh and her partner Patrick Casey, and several nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his brothers, Frank, Angelo, Pasquale and Salvatore.

Condolence & Memory Journal

Mr Moscariello was a wonderful man. He treated everyone with respect and kindness. He truly is a Junction Function Hall of Famer. Believe me he will be missed as many of us growing up in West Concord looked forward to his leadership and always playing fair and square. Billy, your Dad is up in heaven with many of our parents enjoying him once again. My prayers and condolences for you and your family. Always, Smiley

Jerry was known all over Concord for his giving a hand to people whenever needed. As a member of the West Concord Woman's Club which evolved into the current United Woman's Club of Concord, I watched Jerry put out our Scholarship Fair billboards, carry in tons of Jean's hand made Fair creations, set-up tables and be there for all of us on so many occasions over the past several decades. What a kind, strong, thoughtful, and lovely man Jerry has been with Jean at his side. We will miss him so much.

Some time after I moved to Concord as a senior citizen in 2003, I joined a newly formed Council on Aging cribbage group of which Jerry Moscariello was a "founding father." It was then that I really came to know this special man as a friend who welcomed me and everyone else in attendance on any given Thursday, assisted inexperienced players if needed, verified anyone's counts if asked, and provided water to accompany our refreshments. This cribbage group, in so many ways because of Jerry, evolved into much more than a group of people playing cards - becoming instead a group of friends enjoying one another's company while participating in a fun activity.
Much will have changed in all of our lives - when times like those which once were come again. For COA cribbage players, Thursday afternoons will certainly be different without our friend Jerry Moscariello in our midst.
Jerry's beloved wife Jean, and his family have my heartfelt sympathy.

Jerry was such a friend to so many people. I don't think I've ever met someone so kind and embracing. I will miss his excellent coaching at the pool table; I always looked forward to my weekly game at Jerry's, knowing I'd be seeing him again.

Jerry was such a kind and generous human being. He had many skills and shared them with those of us who were all thumbs. An avid poker and cribbage player. Also a great fisherman, wood cutter, and tennis player. A great and humble man devoted to his family and friends. He will be missed by many and may he rest in peace.

Jerry was one of the nicest, kindest men I've ever known. I met him first either on a squash court or a tennis court shortly after we moved to Concord in 1975. Besides tennis and squash we later played lots of pool and ping pong through the Monday morning group that I felt privileged to join for the last 10 years or so. My condolences to Jean and the rest of his family and friends. His passing will be felt by so many people.
