Mr. Moulder died Friday, March 29, 2013, at Maple Ridge Health Center.

Born Dec. 6, 1915, in Buford, he was the son of the late Ernest and Mattie Moulder. He also was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Christine Moulder, and his daughter, Brenda Gayle Moulder.

Mr. Moulder had a full life. He graduated from North Georgia Technical College in 1953. He was a successful businessman, as the owner of Moulder’s 5 and 10 store and Moulder Studio.

He was a popular photographer and a well-loved member of the community. He was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church, where he was an ordained deacon. He also served as Habersham County associational director of the Brotherhood, Royal Ambassador leader, and church training director.

LeRoy was also a recipient of the Republican Congressional Gold Medal and Senatorial Freedom Medal. He was a volunteer member of the Habersham County Senior Center. He retired from professional photography in 1980.
