He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Virginia Pacheco Moreda of Petaluma; five sons, William and Stanley Moreda of Petaluma, Joseph and Frank Moreda of Santa Rosa, and Clarence Moreda of Yerrington, Nev.; four brothers, John, Tony, Manuel and Frank Moreda, all of Petaluma; two sisters, Mary Peterson and Julia Geils of Petaluma; and 15 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Recitation of the rosary will be at 8 p.m. today at the Sorensen Funeral Home, Petaluma. Burial will be at Calvary Cemetery, Petaluma.
