Dennis Gerard Moroney, Eastchester, New York, tragically missing since the World Trade Center disaster of September 11, 2001, will be remembered this Saturday, September 22, 2001, at 10:45 A.M. at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Tuckahoe, New York.

A 1984 graduate of Manhattan College, Dennis was a Partner and Senior Vice President at Cantor Fitzgerald Securities, working on the 101st floor of Tower #1 of the World Trade Center. The family recently spent two years in England, returning in 1999.

Dennis married Nancy DeAngelis on October 19, 1985. Their two children, Elizabeth, 11, and Timothy, 9, will always remember their dad as kind, loving and mischievously funny. His gentle demeanor and goodness filled their lives with laughter and love.

Dennis, the devoted son of Thomas J. Moroney and Joan Boyle Moroney was born in the Bronx on November 7, 1961. The family moved to Freehold, New Jersey in 1966. His six brothers, Thomas of Freehold; Michael of New York City; Kevin of Howell, New Jersey; Brian of Douglasville, Georgia; J.P. of Yonkers, New York; and Patrick, most recently of Dublin, Ireland, will forever see the beauty of Dennis in the eyes of his two children and his six nieces and nephews. The spouses of DennisB9 brothers will join in the celebration of his life, which was his gift to all who knew him.

Dennis touched the lives of many people, especially his loving aunts Margaret and Clare Moroney and his mother-in-law, Geraldine DeAngelis, all of Bronxville, New York.

Dennis loved to play golf, run and swim and was the coach of Eastchester Youth SoccerB9s Crew team; but drew his greatest pleasure from his children, his wife, his extended family and his friends. Those who knew him well will always remember him outside washing the family cars on Saturdays, jogging for miles throughout the neighborhood and going to PiperB9s Kilt Restaurant in Eastchester with his family and friends. He will be sorely missed.

In lieu of gifts or flowers, donations can be made to the Dennis Moroney Memorial Trust, P.O. Box 223, Bronxville, New York 10708.

'Dennis Moroney: The Fantastic 40'

Maybe it was a bit of ego at work. Or maybe it was an early attack of male midlife crisis, sparked perhaps by one of those fleeting thoughts about mortality. Then again, maybe it was just, hey, time to boogie!

Whatever it was, starting last spring, Dennis Moroney began to talk a lot about making a big deal out of his 40th birthday, which would fall on Nov. 7.

First, he told his wife, Nancy, that he wanted her to throw a big bash for him and invite all his friends from Eastchester, N.Y., where he lived, as well as friends from his office at Cantor Fitzgerald.

Then he began to change the way he lived.

"He started to work a lot harder and longer at his job," Mrs. Moroney recalled.

"And he went on a diet and started exercising a lot more. When he started, he weighed maybe 215 pounds and loved to eat cheeseburgers, five and six a week. But all of a sudden he was seriously into eating veggies and regular jogging, sometimes 10 miles or more. He dropped at least 25 pounds. He was still the sweetest man who ever lived, but he also seemed to have this fresh new focus on life."

Mrs. Moroney reserved space at an Eastchester restaurant for a birthday celebration and drew up a guest list. Invitations were to go out on Oct. 1. Most of the people on the list ended up gathering in Immaculate Conception Church in Eastchester on Sept. 22 for a memorial service.
