STANLEY RICHARD MOCZULSKI, JR., age 91, died peacefully on April 6, 2023. He was the beloved husband of Mary Ann (nee Herman) for 49 years and brother of twin sisters Kathleen Branscomb and Helene Rose and brothers Robert and the late Donald. He is survived by many nieces and nephews.
Stanley Richard was an elementary school teacher in East Cleveland for over 20 years, where he was loved by so many students who benefitted from his calling. He graduated from Kent State University in 1970 and later earned his master’s degree from Case Western Reserve University. In addition, he held such interesting jobs as a milkman, a downtown Halles Brothers employee, and a stocks and bonds banker at Cleveland Trust Company.
Stanley Richard and his wife were devoted animal lovers and owned many animals. An abandoned pet could always find love in their home. He enjoyed classical music and opera and could sometimes be heard singing (or whistling) an aria in his beautiful tenor voice.
He was proud of his Polish heritage and traveled to Poland several times. He was a tireless Polka dancer and participated in many Polish activities. He was a member of the Polish Cultural Center in Cleveland. He was dearly loved by his St. Mark Lutheran Church family. Stanley Richard will be deeply missed by many.
