By on January 3, 2018

Dr. Richard “Rich” A. Moraga, 64, went home to be with his Lord and savior Jesus Christ on Dec. 23, 2017. We rejoice that he is no longer suffering from Alzheimer’s disease which took him from us way too soon.

Richard was born in New York, N.Y. He was a graduate of Rutgers University and Penn State University. He was neuropsychologist at Lancaster General Hospital. He enjoyed time spent with his family and spent his free time gardening and working on projects around the house. He had a life long passion for music especially the guitar.

A member of Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, Rich served as an elder and a Sunday school teacher. He had a strong, unwavering faith and lived it out daily.

Family was truly important in Rich’s life. He was a proud father that deeply loved his sons, Grant and Micah, and a devoted husband to his wife of almost 30 years, Alice. He had goofy sense of humor and a kind, loving and gentle spirit that will be missed by all who knew him.

He is preceded in death by his son: Grant E. Moraga.

He is survived by his wife: Alice (Modzelewski) Moraga; and son: Micah Moraga. Also surviving are his parents: Ann Marie and Victor Romero; brothers: Robert and Frank Moraga; sister: Victoria Corozine; aunt: Carmen Caro-Hardy; plus cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

A lover of sweets and coffee, the family encourages you to treat yourself to a baked goody and a cup of coffee in Rich’s memory.

Services were held at Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home and Crematory, Lititz, on Dec. 30. Following services, the family processed to Witness Park to put both Richard and his son, Grant, to rest next to each other.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Lancaster Evangelical Free Church (LEFC) at 419 Pierson Road, Lititz, PA 17543.
