1920 ~ 2013|
Denton Grant Moulton, aged 93, passed away May 20, 2013 in Sandy, Utah.
Born January 21, 1920 in Delta Utah, he was the son of Grant and Eliza Manilla Overson Moulton. Married Martha Lambert Eldredge February 21, 1951 in the Salt Lake Temple. Denton learned to work hard early in life because he grew up during the Great Depression. He joined the US Marine Corps nearly a year before Pearl Harbor and was serving in Samoa when war broke out. He worked for many years as a carpenter and later owned his own business. His son John said it best, "Daddy, when was it you knew that there wasn't anything you couldn't fix?" Denton was active in the LDS church as a stake missionary (Seventy), labored to build four LDS chapels, was a scoutmaster, volunteered as a counselor at the prison, served an LDS mission with his wife to the Iowa, Des Moines Mission, and was a temple worker at the Jordan River temple for over 20 years. He taught his children and grandchildren the values that guided his life, and treasured their company.
Denton was preceded in death by his wife, Martha, and is survived by children Grant (Elynne) Moulton, John (Holly) Moulton, Marian (Ronald E.) Dautel and Joseph (Edie) Moulton; 15 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren; and by his siblings Stanley (Lillis) Moulton, Jane (Reed) Stone and Phyllis (Ed) Murphy.
