WATERBURY Mr. John E. “Jack” Moriarty, age 89 of Waterbury. passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 19th 2020, at home surrounded by the love and comfort of his family, after an extended illness. He was the widower of Marian (Basilico) Moriarty.

To the Moriarty Family, My deepest condolences to your entire family. I met Mr. Moriarty while he worked as a salesman for The Torrington Supply Co., now Torrco. He was a kind and very personable person. So polite. I enjoyed our many conversations going back to when his grandchildren were first born and their many accomplishments. He always had a smile on his face when he spoke of them. Very proud grandfather. He was a pleasure to know. May he Rest In Peace. God Bless. Tina

Dear John and Jeff,

I was so sorry to read of your father's passing. He and your mother and the Reardons introduced me to the rough and tumble world of Waterbury politics. Working with them on campaigns and having the two of you as students brought Barbara and me close to your family. I remember both of your parents fondly. Believe me, the two of you have been in my thoughts.

With sincerest regards,

Phil Benevento
