After a long 12 year, courageous battle with cancer, Raymond Paul Marosi, 82, of Weirton passed away Sunday, January 15, 2017 at his home with his family by his side. Born June 30, 1934 in Weirton, he was the son of the late Raymond and Margaret (Raha) Marosi. He was also preceded in death by his beloved wife of 54 years, Dorothy "Tootie" (Doderick) Marosi, sister Margaret (Dale) Cunningham, in-laws John and Mildred Rutich and brothers in law Nicholas and Donald Doderick. After 42 years of service, Raymond retired from the former C & P Telephone Company where he served as an installation and repair technician. He was a member of St. Joseph the Worker Roman Catholic Church. Anyone who knew Raymond knew that he was an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, especially the Steelers, holding season tickets for decades. He had a great impact on many of the children that he coached in the Weirton Termite baseball and basketball organizations. In his later years, he loved spending time with his grandchildren and family, gaming and wine tasting with his children.

  6. My parents lived almost next door to Ray for 35 years and now my husband and I live there, so I knew Ray well enough to say what a great guy he was, a kind person, a good neighbor. Ray loved to keep his house and yard looking perfect, and he always told me he learned that from my father, who was the same way. Whenever we left on vacation, we always told Ray and he’d keep an eye on our house. He was just a wonderful, amazing person. We’ll really miss seeing him and talking to him, and the neighborhood will never be the same without Ray. His family has our deepest sympathy.

  7. So sorry for your loss. I work at the “Hotel Teramana” and have known your Dad (and Mom) for many years. I always looked forward to seeing my “Steeler Buddy” every time he came in. What a great guy. I will really miss him.

  8. Tom and Donna, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Asking God to surround you with His perfect comfort and peace.

  9. Tom & Billy, I am honored and blessed to have known your father. He was truly a blessing in my life and I will never forget him. He was the first baseball coach I had that actually taught me the game of baseball. (Mighty Red Machine 1979-1982). I later became an organized baseball coach and a high school football coach. I had a great mentor and I tried to emulate his coaching style but could not come close to his ability or expertise. He truly loved the game of baseball and took his personal time away from his family to gave back to the kids that he coached. My condolences. RIP Mr. Marosi
