STAMFORD, Conn. — Lou Moavero, a lifelong Stamford resident and retired Stamford firefighter, died Friday, Nov. 18, at Stamford Hospital from lung cancer and complications from a stroke. He was 79.
Moavero was born in Stamford on Aug. 30, 1937, to Louis Moavero and Catherine Stramandanoli.
He was graduate of Wright Tech and worked as a printer for 13 years at The Advocate before joining The Stamford Fire Department, where he worked for 34 years. He spent most his years at Wood Wide Station as driver of Engine 5.
Moavero enjoyed his retirement years and could often be seen patrolling West Beach during the summer and the shores of the Dominican Republic during the winter. He was an avid boater, water skier and Yankee fan, but his greatest love was spending time with his family.
He is survived by two sons, Richie Moavero and his wife Joanne, and Randy Moavero and Gigi; four grandchildren, Tracy, Nicole, Samantha and RJ Moavero; and his former wife Arlene Moavero.
