Kevin Patrick Moran

Middletown - Kevin Patrick Moran, 64, of Middletown, NJ, passed away on February 1, 2020, at Riverview Medical Center due to complications from esophageal cancer. He was born in Jersey City, NJ, and lived in Middletown all of his life. He was a beloved family member and friend to many in his community. Kevin was a dedicated mailman in the Monmouth Beach area for 36 years. He went out of his way to make other people laugh and smile, always sharing a joke with his mischievous grin. He was an especially generous and kind person who found ways to connect to everyone he came across in life. Kevin enjoyed many things including playing his guitar, walking his dog Mowgli in Hartshorne woods, going to the beach, hanging out at the track, golfing, scratch-off lottery tickets, listening to The Beatles and watching the NY Yankees and Giants. Above all else, he loved spending time with family and friends, joking around and reminding everyone not to take things too seriously.

Kevin is survived by his wife of 37 years, Mary Ellen (née Kelly) Moran; his two daughters and sons-in-law, Erica Moran Etter and Joshua Etter, and Lindsay Harold and Graham Mangini-Harold; his son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Tara Moran; his grandchildren, Nora, Audrey, Grayson, Teagan, and a baby girl due in March; his parents, Thomas and Marilyn Moran; his siblings and their families, brothers Tommy, Scotty, Jimmy, Chris, Bobby, and Michael Moran, and sisters Peggy Bergin, Deanie Deasy, and Kathy Trammell; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Visitation will be held Wednesday, February 5, 2020 from 2-4 & 7-9 pm at John F. Pfleger Funeral Home, 115 Tindall Road, Middletown. A Funeral Liturgy will be offered Thursday, February 6, 2020 at 9:30 am at St. Catherine's Church, 110 Bray Ave., N. Middletown. Burial will follow at Bay View Cemetery, Leonardo.

I'm so sorry for the loss of kevin.
We were both branch 38 NALC. shop stewards. I retired in 2018 and just found out today when I asked a union official how my friend was. I enjoyed being with Kevin a t union meeting's and events. Always at monmouth park . He was so much fun all the time. When my son passed away suddenly he sought me out in atlantic city to give me his condolences. He was a great friend and the news of his passing shook me up. I will miss him . God speed Kev. I will always think of you and say a prayer when I'm at monmouth park.

Dear Moran family: I just opened the local paper and read of the passing of Kevin. I am very sorry for your loss. Kevin was always ready to give a smile and wave to you as he passed in the mail truck. I worked for years in Monmouth Beach and enjoyed knowing Kevin, not just as the mailman, but as a dedicated person with a great sense of humor and love for his family. May you find comfort and peace .

I want to extend my deepest & heartfelt sympathies from the Sobrano Family of Monmouth Beach. Myself, my husband & 2 grown children ... all of us have wonderful memories of Kevin throughout the 25 yrs we've lived here. He was a terrific spirit to encounter daily for many years. He was so kind to me after my beloved dog- Oliver passed. Our prayers & thoughts are with his entire family.

To Kevin's family...I feel like I know all of you...I have pictures on my phone that your Dad text me..showing off the latest Moran addition ..Kevin was one in a million & a true authentic person. He knew how to make that special human connection. I moved to Monmouth Beach in 2011 and Kevin 'the mailman' defined what neighborhood meant. I lived up north all my life and never knew my the name of my mail carrier
Yet with Kevin - I knew the names of his grandchildren, his favorite sports team, and what he was doing ;the weekend' Tears fill my eyes as I write this because Kevin you will be so missed - your community loved you both humans and pups

There are no words to say how sad I was to hear of your passing. You were always so kind to Eddie and I in good times and in bad. You always took the time to ask me how I was doing, always so caring. You were the BEST mailman ever. I will miss you and so will all your furry friends. Until we meet again may God hold you close. Prayers for your loving family.
