So sorry to hear of Moe’s passing. Just saw it in the Beacon and was too late for funeral. What a class act Moe was! I’ve known most of the Mattone family for many years. Was especially close to Milan and Buck and their families. Moe & Lou Ann were such an awesome couple I admired and looked up to! I called Moe the “Wine Master”! Also, quite the artist when it came to woodworking! I will treasure the many pieces I had him make over the years! He taught me how to make Concord Vino close to 25 years ago! He was always proud to talk of his Italian heritage or to brag on the family! Moe was the type of person if he liked you, you knew it, and if he didn’t care for someone, he made no bones about it! A handsome, wise, outgoing, witty, personable, talented, proud, opinionated, fun loving character! Moe had a magnetic personality! He was my kinda guy! I shall always cherish our friendship and the memories! God Bless Lou Ann & the entire Mattone family! Stay strong!

I was saddened to hear of Moe’s passing. My thoughts are with Lou Ann and the family today. You have many memories, some will make you smile and help get through the sadness. We were all fortunate that he was part of the family for so long.

How sad it was to hear of the passing of my favorite cousin “Nino”. He always was close to us all , and came to visit often. He never forgot family and our proud Italian heritage. He was always there for us during our growing up years ,and even later years when we lived far away, He and Lou- Ann never missed a wedding or celebration. I have always admired him for being a wonderful family man…, and oh what a lovely family, he and Lou Ann raised. The world will be a sadder place without him . Rest in Peace “Nino” Sincerely Juanita Mattone Cordery & Marisa Cordery
