David John Morascini, 65, beloved son of Anthony A. Morascini and Jeanne Hochberg Morascini, died April 2, 2021 on his cherished boat on the Thames River, New London. He was born January 6, 1956 in Port Lyautey, French Morocco, North Africa.
David was a unique entrepreneur interested mainly in restaurants that hosted some of the biggest names in local music. He was an activist for peace and justice and ran for president of the United States on three separate occasions generating national exposure and interest. One of David's favorite hobbies was astrology. Family and friends fondly remember often getting a call to advocate for the warning of a Mercury retrograde: "Don't sign anything, go on a long trip, work on electronics, or buy any land until after the 21st!".
David was a man of great kindness with a large giving heart that always found the time to do what made him and others happy. He was passionate about his beliefs and worked actively to make the world a more humane loving place. Everyone who knew him will miss his fun loving personality and long philosophical conversations.
David was predeceased by his loving wife Kirsten who passed away in 2010. He also lost his sister Marianne, whom he adored, in 2014. Along with his parents, David is survived by his children Anthony P. and his spouse Jillian of Tolland, Christena J. and her husband Billy Cintia of Stonington, and Adam Lehmann of Ellington; siblings Anthony B. of New London, James L. of Manchester, Lynne E. of Ashford, Jonathan I. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida; aunts Ann Moore and Carol Piscetello as well as nieces and nephews. In addition, 12 cousins from the Hochberg, Piscetello and Moore families. He will also be deeply missed by his beloved grandchildren Anthony John, Dylan Thomas, Anthony Joseph, Syenna Yung, and Dominic Anthony.
David will be laid to rest at a private graveside service for family and close friends at the Columbia Center Cemetery.
