Born & raised in Revere, Deputy Chief Moschella, was an alumnus of Revere High School, Class of 1942. He entered the U.S. Navy in January of 1943 and served until February of 1946, as a Motor Machinists Mate-lst Class. He would later return to school & succeed as a mechanical engineer. His citations from the U.S. Navy included, WWII Victory Medal, American Theater Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Amphibious Force Insignia: Asiatic-Pacific Medal and the Philippine Liberation Medal. He entered the Revere Fire Department in 1950 and worked his way to the position of Deputy Fire Chief. Considering the times and the preferences against Italian American candidates, the accomplishment as a Deputy Fire Chief was considered almost impossible. He would serve the Fire Department for over 35 years. Both Deputy Chief Moschella & his late beloved wife Antoinetta R. “Netta” (Casella) Moschella, were for many years, devotees of the Immaculate Conception Parish Community. “Netta” passed on June 4, 2015. Deputy Chief Moschella & “Netta” sustained an overwhelming grief, on April 5, 2004, when God called their “Robbie”, a special needs angel, back home to heaven. Although, Robbie was just 37 years, he left a resounding mark on not only their lives, but many many lives across the city and state. The Moschella’s maintained their active membership with the Revere Special Needs program, until their deaths.
Mr. Moschella is the devoted father to Dr. William A. Moschella, DMD & his wife Eileen of Lynn, M. Linda Doherty & her husband Russell E. of Revere & the late Robert S.”Robbie” Moschella. He is the cherished grandfather of William A. Moschella Jr. of Minneapolis, Mn., Justin A. Moschella of Tampa, Fl., Keri-Ann Brugge & her husband Matthew of Eau-Claire, Wisconsin, Brian R. & Jason M.
