Brian James Moulton
A beloved husband, father, family-man and friend;

Brian met his wife, Sandy, in high school and supported her many endeavors and event planning schemes for the 52 years that they were together. He took great pride in maintaining the neighborhoods best lawn and growing beautiful flowers for his wife. In recent years they began traveling to other countries including Ireland, Italy, France, Switzerland, Croatia, and Turkey, where he enjoyed learning about the history of other people and places. He enjoyed flea markets and antiquing, New England sports, and refurbishing the grimiest of old trunks. He also enjoyed history and politics, caring about how people were impacted by events and policies.
A dedicated father, he coached youth sports and cheered on the sidelines at every sporting event and race his sons ran in. He supported all of his children in every possible way and took tremendous pride in their life accomplishments, whether big or small. He was especially dedicated to caring for his handicapped son, Ryan, for whom he created daily moments of joy during his 37 years of life until Ryan’s passing in 2016.
