Richard C. “Dick” Moscato

Of Winthrop and formerly Revere, passed away peacefully on January 8, 2022 with his wife, Mary Katherine (McGovern) by his side at the Lahey Clinic Hospital in Burlington .  Richard “Dick” was born on January 2, 1951, son to the late Vincent and Dorothy (McDougall) Moscato.  Married for 37 years, devoted husband and loving father to Lauren Maher and husband Gerald, and adoring grandfather to Ella Maeve.

He leaves behind many beloved family members including his brother, Joseph and wife Roberta, sister, Nancy Amos, sister- in- law Judith Williams and husband Brian and brother- in- law Richard McGovern and wife Colleen, and many nieces and nephews. 

Dick cherished the time spent with his family. He raised his family in Wakefield, MA and spent the summers boating and winters skiing at their vacation home in Bridgton, ME. Dick enjoyed volunteering his time to coaching various youth sports teams in Wakefield throughout the years.  A few special lifetime memories were his trips to Australia for his daughter’s 21st birthday and to Italy for his 35th wedding anniversary, his daughter’s wedding and the birth of his granddaughter.

Growing up in Revere in the 60s and 70s, everyone had a nickname and got in some kind of trouble. His nickname was “The Bird” as he was the fastest runner on the sports teams, and he was well known for sharing outlandish stories of the “pool room” and the “corner” where everyone knew he was quite the troublemaker.

Following his retirement from the Sheet Metal International Union Local 17, Dick enjoyed golfing, boating, yard work and his annual trips to Florida. He was a longtime member of the Winthrop Yacht Club and Winthrop Elks.

The Moscato family would like to respectfully thank Dr. Edward Jewell of the Vascular Surgery Department at Lahey Clinic and his team for the unconditional care, treatment and support they have given Dick over the past 8 years.

Due to COVID restrictions, Dick’s Celebration of Life will be held at a future date at the Boston University Marsh Chapel. Fellow boaters will be welcomed this summer to the spreading of his ashes at Spectacle Island where he and Mary would spend Sundays picnicking among the sea glass.  Donations can be made in his memory to Hebrew Senior Life, 1200 Centre Street, Boston, MA 02131 or by visiting www.hebrewseniorlife.org.
