When one is called to serve elsewhere and leaves us, it’s hard to understand. Robert A. Moulton Sr.’s physical existence has been lifted as he will now guide us in spirit.
Services will be held this Friday January 7th at the Knapps Station Community Church; 3035 County Route 47, Norwood, NY 13668. Visitation will be from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM with Roberts Funeral beginning at the conclusion of visitation. Burial will take place at Sanfordville Cemetery in the spring.
Robert was born in Stockholm on August 16, 1938, to the late Claude Moulton and Jean Hunter. He was the first of twelve children and graduated from St. Lawrence Central School in 1957. He married Carole Jenkins on November 24, 1960.
Bob began work at a fruit and dairy farm in Clifton Park for 11 years. After he and Carole moved back to the North Country he worked for Green Sawmill up the road in Sanfordville. He then worked at Yorkshire Timber and lastly for LeBerge & Curtis where he retired from in 2009; although he went back to work for Curtis completing 24 dedicated years.
