Obituary: Patrick Moran, 19, of Montclair

We learned last night of the death of Patrick Moran, 19, after a 2-year struggle with melanoma. Tom Moran, editorial page editor at the Star-Ledger is his father, and his mother is Mary Jo Layton Moran, a senior writer at The Record.

We’ve sparred with Tom Moran on his pages, and on ours. Probably will again. But today, deepest sympathy to the Morans for their loss.  

Here is Patrick Moran’s obituary.

    Patrick seemed like an incredibly brave and caring young man.

    No one at Blue Jersey has “sparred” with Tom Moran more than I have.

    But I also have a 19-year-old son. And I can’t imagine what he and his family are going through right now; it’s too much.

    All my deepest sympathies and prayers for the Morans.

    I can’t imagine anything worse then losing a child. Such a tremendous loss.
