Sep 23, 2021

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the sudden passing of Jerome “Jerry” Bradshaw Moles, of Wareham on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, at the age of 62.

Born on November 13, 1958, in Middleboro, he was the son of the late Stanley A. & Eileen T. Moles. He graduated from Middleboro High School and received his associate’s degree from Massasoit Community College. Jerry then attended SEA Education Association in Woods Hole and Roger Williams University where he received his degree in marine biology.

Jerry went on to work for the Commonwealth of Mass. as an aquatic biologist for the Division of Marine Fisheries for 31 years. Retiring in 2015, Jerry pursued his avid appreciation of plant and flower design. He was a valued member of the Wareham Garden Club and was an accomplished, award-winning designer. Jerry also served in the Peace Corps from September of 1981 to November of 1983 in Papua New Guinea as a Marine Fisheries Extension Agent.

Jerry loved animals and helping others. He found great solace and peace at the beach and ocean.

He will be lovingly remembered by his devoted partner of 31 years, William V. Peckson of Wareham; his brothers, Andrew Moles of Sebring, FL and Denis Moles and his wife Eleanor of Canton, along with several nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.  He was predeceased by his brother, the late Stanley C. Moles and his sister, the late Eileen T. Moles.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
