Stephen Adolph Moglia, 60, passed away on February 21, 2022 after a long battle with cancer which he fought until the very end.
The son of the late Adolph and Jean (Kirschner) Moglia, both locally known as part owners of the Evergreen Restaurant in Milford, PA., was born on February 27, 1961 in Port Jervis, NY. He attended Delaware Valley High School and continued his studies at Penn State University before receiving his degree from Connecticut School of Broadcasting. Stephen most recently worked as a payroll coordinator for Orbcomm although his true passion was dj’ing parties as “DJ Mogs”. He was a member of St. Joseph’s R.C. Church in Matamoras, Pennsylvania and a former member of the Port Jervis Lodge of Elks, #645, B.P.O.E.
Stephen was an avid sports fan: the NY Giants and Boston Red Sox, listening to Bruce Springsteen, a pizza connoisseur, enjoyed golfing, going to concerts but most importantly he was a proud father. Stephen was blessed with a large and loving network of family and friends. To know Stephen, was to love him. His smile was contagious and his heart was made of gold. The family would like to thank everyone who has prayed and reached out to Stephen over the past few years. It was truly that love and support that kept him going even in the toughest times. No one had a better outlook on life or will to keep living.
Stephen is survived by his daughter Brooke Curcio and her husband Joseph, his son Thomas Moglia and his companion Madison, his former wife, Dawn Terracino Moglia, his five brothers and their spouses: William and Bernadine Moglia, Michael and Tiffany Moglia, Joseph and Jocelyn Moglia, Mark and Tammy Moglia and Anthony Moglia.

Calestini and Mark Seasholtz, his mother-in-law, Mary Terracino and numerous cousins and extended family members.
