ENID, Okla. — Funeral service for Donald W. Moulton, 88, of Enid, will be 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, at Ladusau-Evans Chapel with Rev. Carrell Still officiating. Burial will follow in Memorial Park Cemetery under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 5-6:30 p.m. today at the funeral home.

As Heaven’s Gate opened once more, it welcomed the precious soul of Don on Monday, Feb. 4, 2013.

Don was born Sept. 12, 1924, in Garfield County to Leroy and Mary Devore Moulton.

Don attended school in Enid.

He joined the U.S. Army in 1943, and served until his honorable discharge in 1946. He was stationed in Maine and Massachusetts.

On Oct. 16, 1944, he married Vera Jo Tapp in Kingfisher.

Don worked in the laundry and cleaning business, retiring from Clean Clothes Rental as a plant supervisor.

Don was an active member of Davis Park Christian Church, where he served as a deacon and elder, where he was honored as an elder emeritus. He spent the last five years being a faithful member of Willow Road Christian Church. He was a small man in stature, but served his Lord in a big way by living his faith. His wonderful prayers before our family “feasts” will be greatly missed. He loved old cars, gardening, and “piddling” in his garage.

He is survived by his wife, Vera of the home; three daughters, Geannette (Ron) Graham of Enid, Wynona (Mick) Quirey of Port Lavaca, Texas, and Donita (Daniel) Soles of Enid; eight grandsons, Ty Stricker, Spencer, Dustin, Brad and Richard Soles, and Stockton, Jonalan and Jeb Quirey; eight great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, five brothers and one sister.

Even though we miss his quiet ways and feel the void, we rejoice for his new life and look forward to seeing him again one day.

Memorials may be made to Willow Road Christian Church with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodian of the funds.

For those unable to attend the service, the service will be accessible via the Internet at www.ladusauevans.com.
