Francis Edward "Frank" Moran, 90, was born in West Roxbury to pre deceased Leslie (Palais) and J. Francis Moran. Frank grew up during the great depression. Having lost his own father at an early age to the tuberculosis epidemic of the 1920's, Frank found companionship and mentoring in the Boy Scouts of America. He received their highest honor, that of Eagle Scout.

He served our country in WWII in the Battle of Iwo Jima. Upon his return he received a degree in business from Boston University. His adult life was inspired and informed by the life of President John Kennedy. He worked most of his life in management and sales within the liquor industry. After his retirement he sold real estate in the Needham area. His favorite past time was spending time with his family, completing the Globe's daily crossword puzzle, as well as, enjoying a good game of golf. Always a man with great style, Frank lived in Needham, Manchester By the Sea, and lastly Southborough with his wife of 56 years, Mary Frances (Penny).

He is survived by his devoted wife, four loving children and their families: his daughter, Susan Moran and husband Hank Mathieu of Hadley, MA, his son, Sean Moran and wife Ann of Norfolk, MA, his son, Brian Moran and partner Antoinette Fecteau of Franklin, MA and his daughter, Sheila Coomey and husband Daniel Coomey of Shrewsbury, MA. He is also survived by seven cherished grandchildren: Cameron, Gregory and Olivia Mathieu, Christopher and Kevin Moran, and Erin and Daniel Coomey, His brother, Robert (predeceased 2005), and is survived by his sister-in-law, Ann Moran and nephew, Christopher Moran of Sudbury. He also is survived by his brother-in-law, John Penney and wife Mary of Scituate; sister-in-law, Patricia (Penny) Allen and her husband Don of Needham as well as other nieces and nephews.

Frank possessed the rare personal qualities of tenacity and optimism. His life lessons from childhood resulted in a passionate engagement with all whom he loved. Frank lived for his wife and children. For that reason he left this earth on September 28 on the wings of Angels.

He was buried with military honors in the National Cemetery in Bourne, MA. A private memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Monastery of St. Clare of Jamaica Plain or the Paralyzed Veterans Association.

The Britton-Shrewsbury Funeral Home, Shrewsbury is assisting the family with the arrangements, which are incomplete.

DRIVERS, BRAKE FOR MOOSE AND DEER THIS FALL!

 

animals,mammals,moose,natureBecause fall is the breeding season for both moose and white-tailed deer, the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (DFW) reminds motorists to be mindful of increased deer and moose activity, especially during early morning and evening hours. September and October is the peak of the breeding season for Massachusetts' small but expanding moose population in central and western Massachusetts. The breeding season (also known as "the rut") for white-tailed deer closely follows the moose breeding season from late October through early December. Because moose have no natural predators in Massachusetts and are protected by law from hunting, these large (500-1,000 lbs) members of the deer family are unconcerned as they move through populated areas. During the mating season this indifference is magnified by the "tunnel-vision" created by the urge to reproduce.

 

Be aware and heed "Moose and Deer Crossing" signs erected by highway departments. Motorists are advised to slow down and drive defensively should a moose or deer be spotted on or by the road. Moose are less likely to move from the road than deer; braking for moose is your best policy! Police and other departments involved in moose or deer/car collisions are reminded that while drivers are allowed by law to keep white-tailed deer they have hit, only the DFW or the Environmental Police can make decisions regarding the disposition of moose involved in vehicle collisions. All moose or deer/vehicle collisions should be reported to the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife District offices. The Environmental Police Radio Room can be reached at 1-800-632-8075.

Space Weather News for Oct. 7, 2011
http://spaceweather.com

DRACONID METEOR SHOWER: On Saturday, October 8th, Earth will pass through a network of dusty filaments shed by Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner. Forecasters expect the encounter to produce anywhere from a few dozen to a thousand meteors per hour visible mainly over Europe, northern Africa and the Middle East. The meteors will stream from the northern constellation Draco--hence their name, the "Draconids." Check http://spaceweather.com for full coverage of the event including observing times and a live audio stream from a meteor radar.

New Program for Teens

Beth Tikvah Synagogue at 45 Oak St. Westborough is proud to introduce a new program for seventh through twelfth graders throughout the greater Boroughs area, “Evenings With the Emissaries”.  This program offers students the opportunity to learn about Israeli history, geography, culture, natural resources, language, holidays and cuisine in a unique way from our visiting young Israeli Emissaries, Inbar Cohen and Shahar Peleg.  Shahar is from Moshav Ram On in the Gilboa Region and Inbar is from Kiryat Tivon (North area of Israel, near Haifa).  

The Emissaries are here for a 10 month long volunteer service experience sponsored jointly by the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the Southern New England Consortium (SNEC), which is a partnership of 12 Jewish Federations in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Israeli high school graduates from the Afula Gilboa region who choose to defer their army service are trained to serve as young ambassadors of Israel to the communities in their partnership region in Southern New England.  

The “Evenings With the Emissaries” program will meet on ten Wednesdays. The first session was on Oct. 5.  Future nights are Oct. 26, Nov. 9, 30, Dec. 14, Jan. 11, 25, Mar. 14, 28, and May 9th from 7-8 PM.  Students can sign-up for a dinner club that meets from 6:30 – 7 PM. For more information on this program, or to register, please contact Cindy Avergon, cavergon@aol.com

You can also find more information about Beth Tikvah on our website: www.bethtikvahsynagogue.org.  Beth Tikvah Synagogue is a warm, progressive, inclusive, egalitarian and fully participatory congregation.  The goal at Beth Tikvah Synagogue is to enrich Jewish life by providing for education, ritual and social growth, and community service in a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all.
