Kenneth Moules, of Wilkes-Barre, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 10, 2013, at age 77 in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
Kenneth was born in Wilkes-Barre on Dec. 29, 1935. He was the son of the late Kenneth and Thelma (Bempkins) Moules.
In addition to his parents, Kenneth was preceded in death by his beloved wife of more than 40 years, Geraldine (Serhan); and his twin brother, Keith Moules.
Kenneth is survived by his children, Kenneth II and his wife, Kitty, of Larksville, David and his wife, Pam, of Malvern, Pa., and Todd and his wife, Miriam, of Pittsburgh; grandchildren, Kenneth Jr. and Kristopher, both of Larksville, Jonathan, Michael and Matthew, of Malvern, Pa., and Elisabeth and Eric, of Pittsburgh. In addition, Kenneth is survived by his sisters in-law and several nieces and nephews.
Kenneth was a graduate of GAR Memorial High School, class 0f 1953, and spent most of his life in Wilkes-Barre. He was a longtime employee of the Wilkes-Barre Area School District, where he was the director of purchasing, retiring in 1993 after more than 35 years of dedicated service.
Throughout his life, Kenneth was passionate and proud of his family. He married his high school sweetheart and now has the opportunity to spend eternal life with her. Kenneth actively supported his children, which included coaching in St. Therese's Little League, being active in Meyers High School's Quarterback Club and traveling all over the country to watch his sons throughout their collegiate football careers, during which he became a huge fan of college football – especially the Penn State Nittany Lions.
The family thanks the many caregivers, including those at General Hospital and Special Care in Nanticoke, for the care, support and compassion they showed Kenneth and the family during his illness.
Funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday from Mamary-Durkin Funeral Service, 59 Parrish St., Wilkes-Barre. Friends may call Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the funeral home. Interment will be at St. Mary's Orthodox Cemetery, Hanover Township.
