David Raymond Morucci

David Raymond Morucci, age 87, of 15 Forest Road, Bloomsburg died peacefully at his home at 1:11 a. m. Monday, Oct. 28, 2019 surrounded in love by his family and caregivers.

Born in Glen Lyon, Luzerne County, on May 26, 1932, he was a son of the late David and Mary (Casaccia) Morucci. He grew up in Glen Lyon where he was known as 'Buddy'. A graduate of Glen Lyon High School he was a well known football player.

David, like many in Glen Lyon worked in the local coal mines for Susquehanna Coal Co. and after  moving to Bloomsburg he was employed by the former Magee Carpet Co. for 35 years before retiring.  He resided in Bloomsburg for 60 years.

He served with the U. S. Army during the Korean War.

He was a member of St. Columba Catholic Church for 60 years and served as an usher for more than 20 years.

David  was a loyal member of Bloomsburg Elks Lodge 436; American Legion Post 273 and multiple local golf leagues. Dave loved golf and won multiple club championships at two  local courses.  He was an avid sports enthusiast and a diehard Notre Dame football fan. He served as a coach for the Bloomsburg Little league and followed his sons and granddaughters in their local sports endeavors.  Most importantly, he loved the camaraderie of the hundreds of friends  that had the privilege of enjoying his infectious friendship and companionship.

He was an exceptional family man; always putting others, particularly his sons and wife  ahead of himself. He was respected by all who met him. He worked tirelessly in the coal mines and at Magee Carpet Co. He was a man of few words who led by example and was the epitome of the generation that produced so many great human beings. He was deeply loved and admired by his family and will be missed by all who had the privilege to meet this special man. God bless him.

He was preceded in death by two brothers: Arnold Morucci and Albert Morucci.

Surviving are his wife of 63 years, the former Ina Claire Harcharick; two sons: Stephen Morucci and his wife, Bonnie (Mulaski) of Exeter and Michael Morucci and his wife Beth Anne (Schilling), St. Augustine, Fla.; two granddaughters:  Kayla Morucci and Nicole Morucci; three  great-grandchildren: Zion Robbins, Juliette Driver and Jameson Driver; a sister, Frances  Brunozzi, Glen Lyon; and numerous nieces and nephews.
