November 19, 1970 - July 26, 2020
Dr. Robert Samuel Moschgat, age 49, of Catawissa and formerly of Johnstown, died unexpectedly on Sunday morning, July 26, 2020 at his home. He was born on Thursday, November 19, 1970 in Johnstown, a son of Robert L. and Naomi (Sodano) Moschgat of Johnstown. Robert graduated from Forest Hills High School, Sidman, PA in 1988. Robert continued his education obtaining his Associate and Bachelor Degrees in Criminology from Mount Aloysius College while following his dream to become a professor. After obtaining his Master’s Degree and later his Doctorate from the State University of New York, Albany in Criminal Justice, he spent over 14 years as a Theoretical and Quantitative Criminologist Professor. Prior to becoming the Assistant Professor of criminal justice at Bloomsburg University, Robert taught part time at five different colleges. He then became an Academic Dean at Herkimer County Community College, Herkimer, NY. As his former students continue to reach out and share their appreciation for their professor, it reaffirms that we may never know just how many lives Robert's large personality touched. He brought an unmatched energy to any room he entered. On July 5, 2003 in Latrobe, Robert married his loving wife, Sherry A. (Beals) Moschgat. Robert was preceded in death by his only son, Robert Samuel Moschgat, Jr. on April 25, 2017. Survivors include his beloved wife of 17 years, Sherry A. Moschgat of Catawissa, parents, Robert L. and Naomi Moschgat of Johnstown, a sister, Tricia Monahan and husband Patrick, of Johnstown, two nieces: Alyssa and Sarah Brandle, and a nephew, Zach Beals. A celebration of Robert's life will be announced at a future date to be held in both Johnstown, and at Bloomsburg University. The Allen Funeral Home, Inc., 745 Market at Eighth Street in Bloomsburg is honored to be serving the Moschgat family.
