  1. John was the son of Alfred Moulder, the brother of my beloved Grandmother, Anna Moulder Laffey. He represented so much to me, as a member of very few Moulder living relatives. Mother ,Ann Laffey Young and I loved Johnny a great deal with his wonderful smile and heartwarming personality who often joined us for family gatherings. I dream that he had his winning ways from his Grandmother, Lydia Keeley Moulder , who my Mother described as an angel who reached out to everyone with love and kindness. God Bless Johnny and his wonderful wife, Lorraine, who was always so kind to my family. Mom passed away last year and I know she will be welcoming John with open arms.

  2. John Moulder was truly a man for all seasons…..winter, summer, spring and fall. Always a “twinkle in his eyes, and a smile upon his face.” In a room full of people, he could make you feel like you were the only person there.
    For sure, John is experiencing the tender loving care of our father in heaven.
    My sincere sympathy and prayers for Lorraine and all of the children and family.
    Love and care, Nancy McNamara

  3. I have so many fond memories of visiting Uncle Johnny and Aunt Lorraine when I was a child but also after I became an adult. They were always so kind to me. Right now, my heart goes out to Uncle Johnny’s immediate family. I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around each one of you. I wish I could have come up for the funeral, but that just wasn’t possible. I love you and miss you.

  5. I worked for John at MOBAC back in the early 80’s mixing mud carrying block. Enjoyed working for him, always took time to stop over to see how I was doing when we were on a job. He had a funny saying when we were slow in the winter and he had send us to Coatesville to sign up for unemployment. I remember he threw some great Christmas parties for us workers. A few years back I saw him up in St. Mary’s church in West Grove. After church he came up and gave me a big hug. That’s the kind of man he was. He was a good person. My sincere condolences go out to the Moulder family. Be at peace knowing he is in heaven today working on those pearly gates giving them his special touch.
    RIP John.

  6. I have never met an entire family that every single person in it was so sweet, fun loving and sincere. The only reason I can come up with that all of you are that way is because of the two wonderful people you call mom and dad. Aunt Lorraine the love between you & Uncle Johnny sparkled. I know you will miss him as will all of you. I feel so fortunate to have known him. He was a gentleman. Everyone who ever knew him has a nice memory call their own. Peace be with you all. Lots of love, Becky

  9. Johnny, I think of all the memories we shared during our high school years and how you buzzed around in your little MG car as well as the many happy times we shared when our children were young. We are all going to miss you Buddy. May you Rest In Peace, as you fought a long tough battle.

  10. So sorry to learn of John’s passing. My dad John always had great things to say about your husband. May he rest in peace. With sympathy and prayers, Elaine Fiore

  11. The best story teller I know. All the times you would tell the story about me at the age of 3 or 4, kicking a Sailor that Aunt Lorraine was dancing with and saying that’s she was my Uncle Johnny’s girl!! Thank you for being the best uncle any one can ever have. It would take to long to talk about all the wonderful memories that I have of you. Uncle Johnny, I love you so much and will always have you in my prayers and heart.. Delores

  12. One of my fondest memories is going to Uncle Johnny and Aunt Lorraine’s house for summer barbecues. Uncle Johnny would be manning the grill and it seemed like every relative they had was there. There was great food and drink and they often continued well after dark.
    We will miss you!

  14. I will never be able to explain the void in my heart. You were such a great Dad and Pop-pop. I thank God for you. I will cherish every memory, every time we held hands, every kiss, every smile. I love you Dad! Love, Your baby girl Lisa.
