He was a loving husband and father who was devoted to his family. From the moment he met MaryLou as a teenager and throughout their nearly 61 year marriage, she was the love of his life.
In addition to MaryLou, he will be sadly missed by his five children, Joseph Moker, Jr (Kathy), George Moker (Laura), Lori Moker, Lenore Racenet, and Kevin Moker (Josephine); his thirteen grandchildren and three great grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Maureen Fedele (Ralph), his sister-in-law, Barbara Brouilette; three nieces and one nephew.
