Allan “Buzzy” Morash passed away in the early hours of July 16th, 2022 at the age of 87.
He is lovingly remembered by his two children, Lauren “Lauri” Dyer and Michael Morash and their respective spouses Ellery and Patty; his grandchildren, Emily and Ethan Dyer, Meghan Morash Collier and husband Drew, Nikki Morash Rossi and husband Kevin; his great grandchild, Ermanna Rossi; and Joel Ginsburg, who Al considered part of the family. He is predeceased by his wife, Marion “Maddie” Morash, née Castle — his high school sweetheart — to whom he had been married for over 50 years. Al is also predeceased by his seven siblings. Al will be missed by many loving and attentive neighbors, of whom he often commented were “the best!”
Al was born in Marblehead, Massachusetts in 1935 and grew up in the Shipyard neighborhood. He graduated from Marblehead High School in 1953 and went on to enjoy a four-decade career as an architectural engineer.
Al loved his hometown and spoke often of his happy childhood. He enjoyed reminiscing about the “good old days” with his Muffin Shop crew.
He loved making people laugh, and had a reputation as a jokester, comedian, and prank-puller. His greatest joy, however, was his family. His legacy will forever be that of a loving and committed father, an engaged grandfather, a friendly neighbor, and a vibrant friend.
He will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
As per his wishes, there will be no official memorial service. However, a celebration of Al’s life will be held in early October. Please contact Lauri at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
Cards for the family may be sent to Lauri Dyer at 7 Towne Hill Lane, Topsfield, MA 01983.
Donations in Al’s memory may be made to the parent company of Compassionate Care, Woburn: The Amedisys Foundation, 3854 American Way, Suite A, Baton Rouge, LA 70816 OR online at amedisys.com.
