2010 – Richard Moran

Posted March 6, 2011 by admin under Harold Lally Lifetime Achievement Award


    Son of Irish immigrants Mary and Michael Moran, Dick was born in the Morrisiana section of the Bronx in 1937, the third of four brothers. He is a life member of the Bellport Fire Department Eagle Hose Company, with 39 years of service. He is still active, presently serving with the Fire Police Company.

    Dick is an Ex-Commissioner of the Bellport Fire Department, longtime Treasurer of the Bellport Benevolent Association and charter member of the Suffolk Fire Safety Educators Association. He has been a member of FASNY since 1989 and has been an active member of the Suffolk County Firefighters Emerald Society since 1994.

    In 1998 Dick retired from AT&T after 35 years of service as a Communications Technician. While working at AT&T he met and married his beloved wife Joan, whom he lost in 2007 after 41 years of marriage. He is the proud father of Sean Patrick Moran and the late William Michael Moran, who was an Ex-Chief of the Bellport Fire Department and a dedicated firefighter with FDNY Ladder 19 in the Morrisiana section of the Bronx.

    Dick extends his best regards to all Emerald Society members and friends and thanks them all for sharing many years of happy memories of "celebrating our Irish heritage."
