A community-wide memorial service will be held on the University of South Alabama campus Wednesday, Oct. 2, for USA President Emeritus Gordon Moulton, whose career spanned most of the University’s first half-century and culminated with 15 years as USA’s president. The memorial is set for 4 p.m. in the Mitchell Center arena on campus, and Geri Moulton will receive guests immediately following at the same location.  

Moulton, 73, lost his yearlong battle with cancer on Saturday, Sept. 28, at his home in Daphne.
Moulton is survived by his wife, Geri (Shelley); a brother, Charles (Rita) Moulton, Albany, Ga.; and a sister, Anne Odom (Donald), Donalsonville, Ga.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Gwen and John Curtis Moulton.

The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Mitchell-Moulton Scholarship Initiative at the University of South Alabama, in care of the USA Office of University Development, 300 Alumni Circle, Mobile, AL 36688-0002; e-mail:
