He grew up in Hoboken, NJ and graduated from Hoboken High school. He then moved to Staten Island, NY upon his marriage to Carol Coscia. He worked for 25 years until he retired from Saint Vincent Medical center in Staten Island, NY due to his kidney failure. Mauro struggled and suffered with this illness for over 11 years on dialysis. His favorite place was Atlantic City, NJ where he found happiness playing the slots and eating at buffets. He was a fun, loving, and a kind hearted man who loved his family more than anything. He survived by his wife Carol, his daughter Melanie Plaza and his son in law Christopher Plaza and his grandchildren Meadow, Dakota and Skylar.

I will truly miss Moe. He was a wonderful man with a great heart. He was always there to help you if he could. Always seemed to have a positive outlook, even though he spent too many years suffering with illness. I remember visiting him in the hospital, after getting a report of his latest struggles, going in expecting the worst, but I always left feeling encouraged because there he would be, being the genuinely nice guy that he was, doing his best so he could get back to being home with the people he loved. From the day I met him, I was happy that he had joined our family. He wasn’t just my cousins husband, he was my cousin, my blood. We shared lots of fun times along with our share of sorrow. But now with his passing we need to remember that the love Moe had for his family is still there. He’s done with the pain and has gone to eternal life with the Lord. So Gods speed Moe. You’ll be missed here by all that loved you. Keep an eye out for us all. We love you.

Upon meeting the Coscia family, I could tell right away that Uncle Moe was a key player and big influence in the lives of his family members. I heard countless stories of at-home song and dance parties, trips to “AC,” and more than a few stories of Moe going above and beyond to help a family member. He was my husband’s godfather, confirmation sponsor, and work buddy! I wish that I had had more time with him but I will always continue to love to hear the stories and know that he will live on in our house through those memories. We are thinking of the whole family and will keep you in our prayers! XO, Emily Coscia

'll always remember the fun times spent with Uncle Moe growing up. I used to have so much fun going to Atlantic City with him, going to buffets, and steak and eggs at 2am. I also looked forward to the the annual Italian festival with Uncle Moe and his family. Uncle Moe gave me the best birthday gift, as he used to give me the newest movies (Home Alone, Home Alone 2, Edward Scissorhands, etc) on VHS for my birthday. I also worked with Uncle Moe at St .Vincent's hospital and we used to frequently have lunch together. We used to have a lot of laughs and we would eat 3 Musketeers Bars for dessert after lunch. Uncle Moe used to visit me at college during my time spent at Villanova and he would proudly wear his Villanova "V" shirts around campus.
Uncle Moe was a big jokester too. Some funny memories of Uncle Moe was when he used to dress up as Elvis and sing at block parties. I also remember when my brother and I were little, Uncle would crush our hands when giving him a handshake and he would laugh and pretend he did it by accident. Uncle Moe had a big heart and I will definitely miss him.

God Bless, Uncle Moe!

My Uncle Moe was a loving uncle, godfather, and catholic confirmation sponsor. I had so much fun with you swimming the big waves at the Atlantic City beach, watching your Elvis impersonations, lighting fireworks on Fourth of July, working / having lunch together at the SI mall and hospital, and watching movies together (we loved watching Meet the Parents and Home Alone). Uncle Moe you also visited me when I was away for college, and drove to PA to help me find my lost class ring that was buried in several feet of snow. I love you and will miss you Uncle Moe. You will always remain in my thoughts and prayers.

My cousin Morris(Moe) was
a wonderful guy. I have many
fond memories of my cousin.
We spent many holidays and
summers at my parents house in South Beach. We
always had a great time
especially at Christmas.
We enjoyed watching “A
Christmas Carol “ over and
over again. We also had a
great time each summer at
my house and my grandparents house in
Midland Beach. My cousin
Morris was a caring and
loving individual. I will always
treasure the time we spent
together growing up. He will
always be in my heart.
Cousin Dr. Vinny
