James M. Moros Obituary
James M. Moros, 72, died Saturday, July 21, 2018 in Burlington, VT. His death was a suicide.
He was born on Jan. 8, 1946 in Hackensack, NJ, the son of Louis Nicholas and Angeline Carol (Gesits) Moros, both now deceased.They were originally from North Wales, PA. Before mental illness overtook James, he lived a very full and rich life. He graduated from the University of Maine with a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology and History. In 1974, he graduated from the University of Northern Arizona with a Master's in Anthropology. James was a "bon vivant", well traveled, well read and, until he became ill, always entertaining. He was an artist, historian and skilled craftsman, especially with regard to the restoration of historic properties and stone work. Sadly, his illness changed his expansive, rich life to one of isolation and silence. This was despite the persistent and loving efforts of his family, friends and caregivers. Being a strong and proud man, he could not accept his illness or embrace medical help. He would not be labeled by the stigma of mental illness.
James is survived by his wife, Clotilde Moros of Creully, France; He also leaves many loving friends in France, Pennsylvania, Maine and Vermont.
A private Memorial Service was held at Elmwood-Meunier Funeral Home.
