Joseph Moroski

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Joseph Patrick Moroski. He was a founding member of the Royal Oak Boys & Girls Club from 1958-1962. Anyone that knew Pat would agree that he was the best “Papa”, Dad, mentor, (life) coach, volunteer, and friend. He was humble, took joy in serving others and always led by example. He loved with a HUGE heart and without judgement.

A memorial service will be held from 3-6pm on August 28, 2021 at the Jack & Patti Salter Club located at 1545 East Lincoln in Royal Oak. Tickets for the memorial service are available below with all proceeds going to Metro Detroit Youth Clubs. Contact Mike Moroski (313) 516-5178 or Bill Moroski (248) 321-7973 with any questions.
