I was very fortunate to be there for Mo over the last few years and his last few days. One of the greatest guys I’ve met. Always with a smile. Asking about my kids. Always loved seeing videos of my son playing hockey. He will definitely be missed. I’ll always remember his emojis him saying as I would leave “Luv ya kid”

When we moved to Hickory St. in 1964, we became fast friends of or neighbors Spice and Mo ! In Lanesville, we all played together, yong, old, boys, girls everything from hockey on Days Pond, to baseball at the field, to basketball at the Court, to swimming at the pit or cove or Plm Cove beach! And my birthday is the day after Mogy's, so we often celebrated them together! Rest my friend. Thinking abot yo Spicy!

I was so saddened when Rene messaged me about Dwight. We grew up hanging together in Lanesville. Although I played basketball, and Mogy hockey, we'd always join each other on the court and ice. I'll miss your great attitude, smile, and overall awesome humanity. R. I. P. My dear friend. All my thoughts out to Spicey!

I was lucky enough to be Dwight’s Hockey Coach at The University of Maine at Orono. He was one of the best players I have ever coached. The only reason we got him at Maine was because Toot Cahoon from Marblehead tipped me off about Dwight because they would have taken him at BU where Toot was Assistant, but they didn’t need a right shot defenseman that year. Dwight had the hardest shot I have seen from the point in college hockey in his era. He was like a magician as he walked it in from the boards, had fake shots that would make an opponent get tied in knots. He would create passes with Gary Conn from Marblehead that would open one of them up for a great shot on the power play. He was a... fantastic player and rarely took a penalty. Always ready to play his hardest and was a key ingredient to our team. He just played! He never asked for anything. RIP Dwight!! You tore it up at Maine in hockey for us Dwight! We’ll never forget you!Read more

I met Mo at O'Maley School in 1976 and became good friends from the start. I was fortunate to work on the waterfront most of my life and ran into Mo often. He always had smile and handshake every time I saw him. I now live in Key West but was lucky to talk and share a beer with him last summer when me and my wife Carolyn were back in Gloucester. Thank You for your friendship and I will miss you #4.
