I just discovered this and I am speechless.

I first met Mike as a sports writer with the Antelope Valley Press through his mother, Kathy. I did a feature on Mike and his long-drive prowess, which absolutely captivated me. I mean driving a ball OVER THE HOUSES behind the range at Camelot GC? Are you freakin' kidding me?

But what captivated me as much was Mike's friendly, outgoing personality. He became someone I enjoyed talking to and I immediately started following his long-drive career and rooting for him.

This led to Mike playing with me and then-Lancaster JetHawks broadcasters Dan Hubbard and Rick DeReyes in the team's charity golf tournament. Mike put up with our hackiness and kept us amused with stories and his ability to render par-5s obsolete.

I hate to read this and I send very belated condolences to Mike's family. To Ashley, you had a good, good dad who loved you beyond words.

It's very hard to believe an entire year has gone by since Mike left us so suddenly.

Mike you are still remembered and loved by everyone that ever had the pleasure of knowing you.

You are still and will always be missed.

Don and Kathy:
My deepest condolences...I only recently heard about your loss. While we have not kept close touch since I left CA to move back home, I have always monitored Mikey's career and will always remember the old Oak Tree days. Don, I miss you and will always be grateful for everything you, Kathy and Mikey did for me.

My thoughts and prayers are with you always.

We offer our condolence for the lose if your son, & Ashlee your father and our dear friend. I have so many fun memories of Mikie back in 1987 when I first met the Moulton family. I was hiting ball on the driving range at Golden Hills when this short kid started to hit ball next to me ,I turn to watch him. I was impressed after watching a kid so young have that much knowledge and skill of the game. We had alot of fun playing basketball in their drive way too.
Ashlee your Dad is a good man we will not forget him. We love you all and we will miss him.

So sorry to hear of Mikes sudden passing! Was introduced to him last year by an old college buddy and played in a scramble event with him at Journey at Pechanga...so what a treat it was to watch him pound the ball all day long! He was easy to get to know and had a great sense of humor...we laughed alot that day! After the tournament, he signed a Pinnacle box for my 12 year old son that will now mean much more than it ever would have. God bless his daughter and parents as they journey through life without him now. We will be together again soon!

I worked the Agua Caliente Charity tournament with Mike in May 2010. He was assigned to hole #1 to hit the drive for all foursomes donating $20.00 to the charity. I being the CPA collected the funds. Mike's parents were there that day as well and mom Kathy eventually worked for the Tribe's golf shop. Mike "performed" for football and baseball legends that day: Marshall Faulk, Christian Okoye and Johnny Bench. For those who did pick up his drivers, Mike said "you sky it, you buy it!". He was a "nice guy" who greeted everyone with a smile.

I first met Mike at a Charity golf tourny where he was featured as the Long Drive specialist. I, being a overly cocky and confident golfer, show up at his tee trying impress him, acting like I can hit that 54 inch driver as well as he could (which btw I couldn't) He says to me "here you go, you sky it you buy it". I proceded to dribble it down the fairway about a 100 yards. He of course hit one 3 hundy plus.

I got to hang out and interview Mike on the radio a few times, he was a great entertainer and an awesome dude!

My first experiences with Mike Moulton were as competitors on tee. The result was usually a bad beat down because he was such an extraordinary talent. His effortless swing was an inspiration! Over time we were able to become friends as we worked together at a number of Charity Events around California for more than a dozen years. But, his loss has brought home the regret that I truly did not "know" him. From what I have heard and read from his closest friends, Mike was the kind of "man" we, and me especially, should aspire to be.
Mike you are truly missed,

Mike Moulton was a man (a Gentle Giant)that had no pretension even though we all considered him a Great Long Driver and Showman. I witnesed a man of sincere attention to the person he was talking with. He looked you in the eye and considered what you were saying as important with respect and kindness. Roger Capan

I am terribly sorry to hear of the loss of Mike. I didn't know Mike that well, But my memories from the little time I did spend visiting with him were very pleasant. I remember him as a calm, well spoken, and very polite young man. My heart, and prayers go out to Mikes family and especially his daughter. May the Lord bless you and keep you all closer to his heart than ever before. We are all blessed to have known the kind, loving person that Mike was.

The idea of saying hello and goodby to a friend once they're gone is a shocking reminder to love our friends and family with every chance. Mike did that - In 8 years of competing with him - I can't remember a time when he didn't make those around him feel better - smile more -and witness his loving-father demeanor.

May we all learn from Mike's character and gentle spirit - God Bless the family and while life on this earth is painful at times - I believe in the opportuntiy to live eternally in a better place without pain-

By the grace of Jesus Christ - we will all have an opportuntiy to enjoy Mike's company once we join him again.

God Bless - Brent Surratt

I didn't know Mike that well personally, but I knew him well enough to understand that he was an amazing person who had many, many friends. Mike was always kind and considerate to everyone one around him. What a huge lose it is to his Family, little girl and friends. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone suffering from this tragedy. God seems to have a greater plan for Mike, hard to understand but somehow we all must believe that to deal with the sorrow. God Bless the Moulton Family. We will all keep you in our prayers.

Aloha Biggn, I will always look up to you, for you were the truest of competitors. You were also the best dad I met. I brought my 2 year old daughter to WLDC to meet you as well as 'mom' (Kathy). It just doesn't make sense. You succeeded on every stage, and I was able to enjoy that with you as you did when it was my turn. I saw every winning drive at Chino, Kansas, and was the first person on his feet when you took off running after hitting that magical draw in 2001 World finals. You were adopted into the NorCal team, for you were truly one of us (and you did hit the 476 at Madera)...

I love you man, love your family, and was honored to see them at Mesquite. Mahalo for being there for me through good times and bad.

A hui ho,

Mike was a force in life! I met him through his long drive activities and will always remember how this bigger than life individual could light up a room with his laugh and stories. From afar, the first impression of this mountain of a man might be one of intimidation - but after a handshake and one of those "Moulton smiles", you knew you had a friend nearby.
I'll miss you Mike. Show everyone up there how to hit 'em long and down the middle.

I met Mike through a season of our lives. We were connected through a business venture, from a mutual friend. We quickly became friends, sharing in visions of grandeur. Mike was such a joy to know, and hearing all his stories were so fun. We both were fathers, and certainly spent time doting over our kids. Ashlee, your dad adored you, and was ALWAYS quick to share about what you were doing. I quickly got to the point when we would connect on the phone to just asking how you were, cause I knew he wanted to go there first and foremost. I knew Mike only 2 years, but Mike had a way of making you feel like you had been friends for a lifetime. I grieve for his loss every day! To all his family and friends, you are in my prayers! I thank you for sharing Mike with me for just a flash of dawn. That was just enough to learn from him what living life the right way meant. I will miss you dearly Moult..Scott Shepard

Mikes loss was a tremendous blow to all who knew him. I really loved spending time with him and will remember well his dry sense of humor and how relaxed he made you feel. I remember his parents at each long drive and also looked forward to seeing them. The long drive will simply not be the same, and will serve from year to year as a reminder of the good friend that we lost. My prayers are with all his family.

I was so naive to think I'd see you again without a thought... It's been 2 1/2 years but I can still see your face like you're with me now. Some of my most cherished memories are with you, Mike and I will never forget them or you. You touched my heart and life in ways I cannot even explain and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Spending the time we did together meant more to me than I think you know and I will be eternally grateful for all you gave to my life. You are an exceptional person and a better friend than I could ever express. You helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and I can only hope I did the same. Your life and incredible journey will never be forgotten and I know everyone will carry your wonderful spirit way beyond today. I love you with all of my soul and will hold you so close to me in all that I do. I miss you so much, Mike but now we have an angel to watch over us all and just knowing that eases the pain that you're not here. The world lost a warrior but Heaven gained an angel when you got there. You're in my thoughts and heart forever.

Always,

Good morning Ashlee. I am old but new to long drive so I never met your dad. I am saddened that I missed meeting such a great man. But, I do know that life is to short sometimes and I'm sorry you had to experience this. All we really have is our "legacy" (how we are remembered) After experiencing the "worlds" last week I witnessed what others thought of your dad. From what I saw the legacy he left the world can't be measured. From what I witnessed last week, your dad Is a great man.

Today I had the honor of saying goodbye to one of the warmest hearts I have ever known. Mike was an amazing father, a great friend and a person who touched so many lives. In his 30's he was taken from us far too early and I was blessed to be with him in his final hours. Mike, I will always love you and am greatful for the graciousness in which you blessed those who had the opportunity to know you. May the fairways and greens in heaven be wide open and always in your favor.
And when I reach the glorious place you now call home i will take you up on that golf lesson... AND I AM BUYING the cold beers!!
forever your freind...

I knew Mike for abut 2 years. We used to print tshirts for company he worked for. His passing was a shock and great loss. He was always a gentleman and treated me with the outmost respect. He was warm and was so easy to get along with from the first time I met him. He will be missed and may God comfort his parents and his daughter. You will be in prayers.

I remember the first time i meet mike it was 2001 my very first time at the World Finals. We where praticing right next to each other, cause we where on the Tee together in round 1. What a thrill it was and we shared the tee box many times after that time for many years. Im still in shock and deeply saddened by the news. What a great person Mike was you will be missed.

Mike, the measure of one's life is not through fortunes amassed or awards won; it is simply through the number of lives touched. Through your extraordinary gifts and talents you touched so many lives throughout the world. You were a big person with an even bigger heart that loved to entertain people. Thank you for your friendship and for touching my life. In parting, I would just like to say congratulations Mike on a life well lived. Rest in Peace Pal. Kieran

Don and Kathy,
What a special man Mike was. I didn't know him well, only through my brother Brian, but I want to tell you he made a huge impact on those who knew him, including me. I met him, of course, in Mesquite and he was always so friendly and happy. I felt his kindness, his goodness, and sensed what a good soul he had. We are all so upset with his sudden departure but Mike must have been extra special that God needed him with him now. My faith has always gotten me through difficult times, and I pray for God's love to wrap around you in this most difficult time.

I never got the pleasure to meet Ashlee, but know Mike was an incredible father and she will always have his memories with her. My heart truly goes out to your all. Love, Susan Pavlat Johnson

Mike's passing was a very sad day in my life. He was one of the most generous and kindest people in my circle of friends. Mike was alway had a big bright smile on his face everytime I saw him.

I remember the first time I met Mike, Jason Taylor said, "Bobby, I want to introduce you to someone, this is Mike." We teed off on a 365 yard par 4 at Jurupa Hills. I teed off, and hit a 310 yard drive. I said, "That was loooong!" I saw Jason smile. Mike stepped up, with a 4 iron. So I'm thinking he is going to lay-up about 230-235. Well, Mike hit his 4 iron 295 yards and I said, "OOOh my God!" Mike responded, "God can't hit the ball that far!"

I will forever hold a special place in my heart for Mike. He was a great man, a great father, and a great friend and I will miss him greatly.

Mikey was such a good kid!I wish my own son had some of that drive that Mikey had.
Though I don't know Ms. Ashlee, I can say that my own children found some comfort meeting peers who were trying to process the unexpected loss of their parent.
My heart and soul goes out to all of you.

I met Mike when I was part of a group of golf writers who came to Mesquite for the finals in 2006.

Mike was kind enough to do a clinic for us one afternoon. He was very gracious with his time and his knowledge of the golf swing. All of us enjoyed his company.

Our sympathies go out to his family and in particular his daughter.

I've met many competitors in the long drive theater and Mike was atop the list when it came to class.

He always found the time for just a hello or to stop and chat. Mike was one of the few who knew and understood the value of treating everyone the same whether it was a person of celebrity or the security guard working his beat.

In time we may forget what you said, and what you did in life, but we will never forget how you made us all feel...

We'll see you on the other side my friend.

Dear Don and Kathy......
The lst time I saw Mikie, he was 6.....skinny, little guy....and he stayed that way for a long time. He loved his golf and it was fun to see him learn, practice...and follow in your footsteps, Don...as he was a gentleman on the course...just like you! I took at least 2 trips with Mikie and Kathy and he is probably responsible for saving my life.....as at the time, I was a little off my game, and Kathy was
threatening to kill me at every state line. :)
Mikie, as caring a child as he was, was very aware of my little "downtime" and always a sweetheart to me....Kathy and I have travel stories locked away in our hearts, but the most
memorable one involved us taking Mikie into a casino and he wanted to pull the arm on the slot machine in the worst way....so we hovered over him while he did and an annnouncement came over the loudspeaker telling us to stop or we were to leave the casino! We all laughed about that in later years......Speaking of the later years....Mikie grew in stature, but he never outgrew is gentleness...at least with me.
I will forever think of him as the "Gentle Giant" ...and I can't even imagine what it must feel like to lose such a devoted son.....Good job to his loving parents! God has him now but we will see him again. Lovingly and with peace for you all....Mary Sue

Mikey Moulton was my next door neighbor from age 6 - 19. You're gonna be missed my friend. I still remember skateboarding, and playing catch, football,basketball,army men, tron, and yes, "ninjas" in the back yard and around the neighborhood like it was yesterday. This is a sad sad day.

Mike,
You were one of the first friends I ever had. I remember your goofy grin greeting me at Wells School during our first day at school in the first grade. When I moved to town in the 4th grade, we spent countless hours together playing football in your front yard (We took the Niners to another Superbowl) playing basketball in your driveway, or playing over the line down at the baseball field. I remember when you got your "Mike McGill" skateboard and you wanted to join Jimmy's Bones Brigade.

I remember walking home from school with you everyday and almost getting mauled by the "Cujo" dogs. We used to eat grilled cheese sandwiches with ketchup on the side and watch "Meatballs" everyday. Remember "One Fold Sleevy, Two fold Sleevy. Presto!" I remember when you hit the Game Winning Home Run in Rosemond during our sectional tournament in Little League. I remember singing "Living In America" in your bedroom. I was James Brown and you were Apollo Creed. I remember our Marvin cartoon.

I remember in High School when you thought you had me blocked and I crawled under your legs to make the tackle. You said, "I can't believe you did that." I remember when I crashed a golf cart at Golden Hills and you telling me your parents are going to kill us. I remember your knee pads, elbow pads, and neck pad. You were always at your best when you didn't try to be anything else but Mike Moulton. We used to sign our yearbooks every year, "See you tomorrow."

You became a mystery to me as an adult. But the last time I saw you it seemed like time hadn't passed. Childhood friends picking up where we left off. You were a great friend, a huge part of my childhood and with you gone a part of it left with you. My heart goes out to Kathy and Don and your daughter Ashlee. See ya buddy...Maybe not tomorrow, but when I do, I hope to see your goofy grin greeting me like it did 30 years ago.

Mike is a great man. I was his neighbor in Eastvale for a few years. We loved when Ashlee and he would come by and hang out for a little while, play pool, and listen to the Zach Brown Band while the kids played in the playroom. I could count on him if I needed a cup of milk, a cold drink, or a swing lesson. I will miss you man.

A friend has been taken from us way to soon. Don Kathy and Ashley their are no words that can be said to show our grief's. We all loved Mike as he was a very special special man as we all know. Great athlete and an unbelievable competitor with a huge heart for his opposition, make no mistake he wanted to crush us all while on the tee box. The second he walked off the tee box Mike was the guy to be around because of his charisma and joy for life. Mike was funny, passionate, honest, loyal, loving, giving, mean (in a good way), fun, protective of his family and friends, compassionate, A damn good father, a great son to Don and Kathy. There just are no words do describe this tragedy to the Moulton family. Don Kathy and Ashley, we are so sory for your loss. Love you guys ! The Howell Family ... This will be the worst RWLDC ever. Bye my friend never to be forgoten.

Mike, you were a true gentleman and so very kind. I remember when I first came into the sport, I was intimidated and nervous and you were welcoming and offered sage advice. That was appreciated more than you will ever know! Of course the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...Kathy and Don...every year at World Championships and Tour events you were supportive, full of hugs and smiles and always checked how I did. You were wonderful!!! I am a mom too now and can not even begin to image the loss you must feel. It's insurmountable. Ashlee..know that your dad was one of the good ones. He treated others how he would like to be treated. He should be so proud as I know he is of you. I am so sorry for your loss....

Ashlee,

I will never forget the first time Brian, Tyler, Zane and I went over to your dad's place. We were passing through California and wanted to drop by to say hi. I had a certain idea about what a single dad's place would look like and I couldn't have been more surprised! I walked into a house that was cleaner than my own! You were very little then and your dad had buckets full of cute bath toys in the bathroom, special towels just for you, and the cutest little girl's bedroom! I already knew what a great guy your dad was from all of the times he had stayed at our house, but that day I realized what a one of a kind father he really was. Every dad loves their child, but your dad's dedication to you was unequalled!!!

Your dad and Brian were such close friends, but I am proud to say that he was my friend too. I will truly miss him. I know that he will always be looking out for his sweet girl.

I first met Mike at Canadian Nationals in 2000. It was my first tour event and I was eager to put a face to the names of the legends I had heard about. Mike was one of those legends.

He spent half an hour talking to me about how he got into the sport, answering my questions and "showing me the ropes." He was so generous and what he shared with me was so encouraging. I'll never forget the impression he made on me that day.

We got into a business venture together a few years back which gave me the privilege of getting to know Mike even better. He had a real entrepreneurial spirit and loved to think big. Our chats were never just about business though and with any kind of gap in between them, we just picked up where we left off. It was always just that easy with Mike.

I feel so fortunate to have been friends with you Moulty. You are sorely missed and will never be forgotten.

We met each other in 1997 and have kept in touch up until early this year. Unfortunately, because of our hectic work schedules we never had a chance to catch up in person, instead we would pass each other or just miss each other, depending on what we state we were in. One of the things I will really miss is when presented with relationship problems, your advice was right on. Our workouts at the 24 in SB were fun too even though that was like 10+ years ago. My only regret is not getting in touch with you each time I made it back to California. You will be missed greatly brother, look down on all of us.

I met Mike at the 2001 Worlds. I was a fortunate qualifier with little chance of getting out of the first round. Mike treated me as I were a past champion, and a favorite to win. He said "If I made it there, that I deserve to be there, and that I had already won" He was a gentleman and a good person. Time to redesign the golf courses' in Heaven!

Rest in Peace,
Mike

Mike was an awesome guy that welcomed a kid from Omaha who moved to Tehachapi his Junior Year of High School. He was always nice and welcomed me to a few rounds of golf in Bear Valley. He will be missed.

It's been many years since I've talked to Mike, I met him playing on the Bakersfield College Golf Team in 1996 or so. I was a shy rookie and even then Mike was larger than life. He took me under his wing and made me feel accepted on the team. He was always so much fun to be around, so supportive and such a showman. He was a team leader and a total clown... Everyone loved the guy!

When I learned he'd made the switch to full-time long drive competitor/exhibitionist I wasn't surprised as he was born for it. The long drive community has no shortage of big personalities but it certainly will not be the same without Mike.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Mike was my very first friend, we met at age 3 when his parents lived briefly next door until they bought the house near the Little League field. Bitsy, Mikey and I used to run wild between the yards, always covered in popsicle goo. The three of us even had matching backpacks for the first day of kindergarten! I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to say goodbye Mike, but I'm sure we'll be friends again, someday :)

Mike,

I am extremely fortunate to have had such a close relationship with you. I want to thank you for so many wonderful times and laughs...Hundreds of events together; and so many great memories.

You were bigger than life to my son Zach. A super hero! Each time you stayed at the house you made his day!

It's not often you have a friend that feels like your own brother but also like a son, you were that to me.

God put me in your life and honored me to see your final breathe; something I will never forget.

You depart and leave two wonderful parents and a beautiful daughter in Ashlee. Never did we have a conversation without you telling me everything she was doing; she was your life and I assure you that she will be taken care of.

Moulty,
The Grid Is Clear
God Bless

Mike was a great competitor and a great person to hang out with. We shot an infomercial in Mesquite together and I could not stop laughing, it took so many cuts because we could not keep a straight face. Seeing Mike at each event was always a treat, we were able to catch up on each others life and we got to try to beat one another. I'm going to miss him dearly. To his family, you will get to see Mike in your dreams and it will bring back all the good times you had with him. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, stay strong.

We all looked up to our big cousin. Our grandparents were always bragging about their grandson Mikie.
WE could all see our grandparents sense of humor and personality in him.
I still remember the day my youger but bigger cousin beat me at one on one in what I thought was my sport. I definitely was not challenging him in his sport.
WE love you and will cherish the times we had together.
Rest in Peace, Big Cuz.

With my deepest and warmest regards...

While visiting a friend in Atlanta in 2003, I wanted to see if I could qualify into the LD Tour event for fun. I've only competed at the local and district level at that point so I had zero expectations.

I qualified in and found I was to be paired with Mike on the tee in the first round. I was well aware of what he had accomplished and who he was but had no idea what to expect or how he would be. To find out how down to earth and approachable he was, then witness his stature, professionalism and competitiveness not to mention his talent.....I will never forget! Truly something to admire and emulate. I am honored to not only have the chance to compete with Mike but to have that as my first professional experience.

Mike, Thanks for the memories man! You have left your mark with many that neither space nor time can erase.....Rest In Piece

I remember getting to know Mike some five years ago. Hanging out with Mike and the fellas are some memories that I will keep in my heart always. When I got the phone call about Mike, I was so shocked and saddened. My eyes water and my throat burns as I write this. But I immediately smile and laugh at those good times I was fortunate enough to be a part of. I just read an article in today's local sports page about Mike's passing. And while I can only read and get told stories about him as a golfer, I can say that I got to know him personally. Thank you Mike for all the great times, and for being a good friend. It was always my pleasure to "make you laugh." I'm going to miss you buddy. God bless you, Don, Kathy, Ashlee, and all of your family. Till we meet again.

I was very shocked and saddened to get the phone call that Mike has passed. I only saw Mike once a year, but the annual occasion was to donate his time to help us with a golf tournament to benefit the children of Phoenix. Mike was here with us every year from the very beginning. He and Brian's participation were one of the highlights of our day.
Ashlee, your dad made a huge difference in the lives of many, and he will be missed. I pray that God gives you the strength to make it thru this very difficult time, and know that your daddy loves you very much and will be with you always.

I'm still smiling thinking about your quick wit and that engaging smile. We will miss you at Avnet, and I hope you are looking down on us with a light heart. You were a good man, and I will truly miss your spirit. Vaya Con Dios, my friend.

I came to know Mike during my years of working in the golf business at Trophy Club Country Club. Trophy Club is a few short miles from the LDA headquarters and Mike would stop by every time he was in town. We played golf together a few times and he was a true gentleman and the nicest of friends to all of us. With the things he accomplished he could have easily had an attitude that he was too good for us "little guys", but that was the total opposite. I remember the last round we played together, Tom Roskos was also in the foursome and they both thanked me and our golf course for letting them play. Both he and Tom wrote hand written thank you notes to our golf course and said thanks for having us out to the course. I am very saddened by this news and will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

October 25th was one of the saddest days I will ever remember. Getting two very emotional phone calls from my sister and father simultaneously letting me know the bad news. Immediately I rushed to be with my family and Don and Kathy. Being able to see Mike one last time brought back so many good memories of when Mike became part of our family. Mike was a great person and I always considered myself lucky to have a brother like him. Mike was also a very good father always being there for Ashlee, and every time I see my beautiful Ashlee I will be reminded of Mike and what a great person he was. Until we meet again Mike, rest in peace. You will be greatly missed Brother.

Mike we will miss you, our heart breaks for the loss your family feels in your absence. We will miss your smile and your infectious laugh. We were neighbors, we were friends, everyday you would smile and wave as we drove past your house, you would stop for chats and just to check in. Our girls played together and whether or not you knew it you were the coolest dad on the block with all the goodies you had stashed in your fridge! We had many a good laugh over your yard improvement project, in the end the chimineya won out and summer nights at your place were where it was at! Life was fun, wasn't it?
I love how you loved Ashlee, you would tell me how excited you were that she was coming and hoped Maddie was around so they could play and hang out, they did, which meant we did, I miss those times buddy!
You were good at listening as I talked about church and God, I think you knew him and I know he was and is crazy about you! I hope now that you two have met you are convinced how much he loves you!

See you one day again my friend, until then...

Our love,

This is a huge shock and big loss for everyone who new Mike. I met Mike through Brian Pavlet and the two of them have come and supported the Phoenix Children's Hospital Charity Golf Event for the past 10 years. I always look forward to this event because of great guys like Mike. He would always rearrange his schedule to make this event and everyone looked forward to seeing him. Mike was a big man, but his heart was even bigger! We are all going to miss him very much and the tournament will not be the same without him. Who is going to babysit Pavlet? God Bless the family at this sad time. I will miss you buddy!!!!

Although i only met Mike twice, i can assure you they will not be forgotten.I was introduced to him through a long drive friend at the Texas Shootout several years ago and again at worlds that year. I remember being nervous on the tee but afterwards he came up to me on the range like we were old friends and had nothing but great things to say. At worlds it was the same way and i will never forget that as long as i live. He was truly a genuine man and will be missed. RIP brother..

Thank you to everybody for your kind words and your love and support for Ashlee. Her and I have been reading the stories posted and it's helping her tremendously. She loves to hear so many wonderful comments about her dad and the funny stories. PLEASE KEEP POSTING THEM!!!!

I also will be telling her many funny and endearing stories. Even though Mike and I divorced, we always remained great friends. We both agreed on how we wanted to raise Ashlee and we both wanted the same thing for her "HAPPINESS". I could not have picked a better dad for Ashlee! His spirit, compassion for others,strength, and beautiful smile will live on in Ashlee and she will always be reminded of what a great man her dad was.

Thank you Mike for giving me such a beautiful daughter! Thank you for helping me create such wonderful memories for her! I made you a promise on monday night and I will always keep to it! I will miss you more than words can describe and will forever include your memory and honor in every milestone of Ashlee's life.

I Love You Mike!!!

My condolences go out to the Moulton family. I worked for Don and Kathy at Camelot in Mojave. Mike and I met a few times and I remember him being a giant who could hit a golf ball a country mile. He was a good man and I'm sure was a great father from the character he showed in the times we talked. Don and Kathy were proud of there son, and rightfully so. My thoughts and prayers go out to all that have been touched by Mike.

I never met Mike, but I saw him hit several times in regional events and at the world finals twice. My best memory of Mike's amazing ability with a driver in his hands was at a local event that led to a district event the next day at an event in Phoenix. A young guy had been leading the open division all day by quite a bit over everyone competing. Mike showed up with about 15 minutes before registration ended. Jack Dougherty was running the event and he asked Mike if we wanted to register to hit several times before he closed registration. Mike said, no once was good. Those of us watching thought it was a bit short sited to not sign up to hit more than one set in case he needed to. Mike stood up and hit the first two past the leader but both were out to the left by very little. The third one he striped down the middle of the grid and that was it. He beat the guy and walked off the tee without any fanfare or hotting or yelling. Again, those of us who know long drive stood in AWE of Mike's immense talent and professional demeanor. My sympathies go out to Mike's loved ones for this tragic loss. He was a class act, he will be missed! God Bless.

I was introduced to Mike many years ago when my sister (Maya) brought home her new boyfriend…much to our surprise he was a giant, not only in stature but also in the size of his heart. Mike was easy to love, always smiling, always joking and just always fun to be around. I know that I will think of Mike often as I see all the wonderful characteristics that made Mike such a special person every time I look at Ashlee. I am extremely honored to have been Mike’s only sister. Mike was an amazing man, father and friend. The world has definitely lost a one of a kind person. Love you brother…

Mike was a very Dear friend of mine. He was always there when you needed to talk to him about something personal going on in your life. I remember how happy he was when he found out he was going to be a Father. I remember him saying he would have done anything for his Little girl. When his child was born he said she changed his soul as a man after she was born and made him realize what was really important in life. I lost touch with Mike several years ago do to the changes of life. But I always felt like we both took a piece of each other in our journeys of life. He was a good golfer but a Great man. May God open the gates of Heaven for you Mike, I Love you my old friend. My condolences too Mikes Family!

Stop all the clocks, cut of the telephone
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone
Silence the pianos and with a muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves

He was our North, our South, our East and West
our workingweek and our Sundayrest
our noon, our midnight, our talk, our song
We thought that life would last forever: we were wrong

The stars are not wanted now, put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood
For nothing now can ever come to any good...

To his family and friends...my deepest sympathy. Please know that Mike will not soon be forgotten.

One of my favorite Mike Moulton stories happened in 2004 at the LDA Tour event in Ajax, ON Canada. Being my home town I had Mike, Beast, Pavlet, Zuback, Nash, Robinson over to my house for a BBQ.

I must have grilled up 27 pounds of steaks. In typical Beast fashion he went through his share in about 4 minutes and threw his arms up in victory! The second his arms hit the air his chair exploded from underneath him. Mike always one to throw a bard immediately started to chirp Beast about his weight when BOOM Mike's chair exploded from underneath him to.

Absolutely one of the funniest things I've ever seen and we all laughed until we had tears in our eyes for probably a solid 30 minutes.

Mike you were one of a kind my friend I miss you already.

My deepest condolences to Don, Kathy and Ashlee

Your friend forever.

I sit here writing this with a very heavy saddened heart after several very stressful soul searching days at the hospital saying my farewells to Mike a gentle giant with a big heart. I can’t say enough about Mike he was the best father to Ashlee (my granddaughter) giving both physical and emotional support he was always there for her.

Mike and Maya (my daughter) remained friends after their divorce and both participated 100 percent in the raising and creating a path for Ashlee’s life. Mike and Maya both are giving, loving people and these values have been instilled in Ashlee. He was a very involved parent. Mike took Ashlee every weekend he could and this little girl had this gentle giant at her beck and call.

Those of you who really knew Mike realized what a big heart he had. He would help anyone at a drop of a hat and was always one for the underdog taking them under his wing and ensuring he would not be bullied. If you know Mike’s parents Don and Kathy you understand where he gets his warmth and values from. I am thankful they allowed us in to share their grief, give support, and pay our respects to Mike.

My family is very lucky in that we have a piece of Mike with us in Ashlee who is a very special loving little girl. Every day we see Ashlee will remind us of Mike and how special he is.

You were a safe place for those who were hurting or in need. I cherished our relationship, and the one I have with Ma and Pa. I will miss the big hugs from you, but will get my share from Ma and Pa. You were a man's man, a fierce competitor, a wonderful son, and an awesome father. Save room in your foursome in Heaven for me . I love you and will miss you dearly.

A sad and tragic loss of one of life's and golf's true gentlemen.

Mike's stature was towering, yet never intimidating -- unless on the tee. His fatherly devotion to Ashlee made many of us realize that our priorities sometimes were out of balance. And his giving and selfless ways reinforced that it is not what you receive in life that matters, but what you give and do to make other's lives better that counts.

At the end of our life's journey we hope that we made a difference, as well as left a positive and lasting impression on the friends we made and the family we cared for.

There is no question that Mike Moulton left an indelible mark on the people, lives and causes which were important to him.

If indeed there are fairways in Heaven, I know Mike will walk every hole with purpose and pride, as well as help each struggling golfer he encounters along the way.

Peace,

I met Mike in 1997 in one of the qualifiers for that year. He was a most impressive hitter with a "golf" swing rather than the frenzied swipe of some long drivers. We met again that year at Mesquite when the event was held at the Casablanca Golf Course.

In subsequent years I came to know Mike's Dad, Don, and soon thereafter many of us went to qualifiers at Don's golf course outside Mohave. Vince Howell and I enjoyed playing our annual two man scramble against Don and Mike at Casablanca in the ensuing years.

Mike knew I was an administrator with the Sheriff's Office in Contra Costa County and at one point he asked me to write him a letter of recommendation for the San Bernardino Sheriff's Office, which, of course I happily did. No doubt Mike was much happier as a long driver than he would have been as a Deputy Sheriff, but I can assure you that I would have loved to work a two man car with a guy like Mike.

God Bless you and yours Mike and I know I'll be seeing you down the trail my friend.

There are countless stories of Moulty extending a hand and helping others. That was just Mike being Mike. Whether you needed an extra driver before a set, a ride to the airport or just somebody to talk to in a time of need, he had you covered. Loving, caring, strong and just an all around great person and friend. I'll miss you Moulty.

I wish he still owed me. Mike came up to me at the Arizona Regional last year and said I have a case of Miller Lite in the car. I said great let's drink it but "your old man still owes me one". We are really going to miss you Lava Man.

I want to send my deepest remorse to the family of Mike Moulton. Mike and I met at the First LDA Event in Atlanta, Georgia in 2003 at Laurel Springs Country Club. He was the only Professional Long Drive guy that spoke to me and encouraged me thru my first LDA event. I showed up at this event with one driver and Mike provided me two additional drivers as backups knowing the sport the way he did. Mike and I ended of making the finals together spending the entire day together. I contacted my ex-wife and informed her of this horrible news of Mike and her exact words was, Wasn't he the guy that helped you at your first event, he's that guy you took a picture with and got him to autograph it...He simply made a lasting impression upon everyone he ever met. I know he did upon me and my ex-wife. Be proud of him as a person and son, Mr. and Mrs. Moulton being the father of two I cannot say or type enough words to express or remove what your family is going through, but I will pray for you and your entire family.

I cannot say that I know what Don & Kathy are going through, for I have never lost a child. I can only say that they clearly know that they have many friends and that their son Mike was loved, respected and had an impact on many. That is a testament to them as well as to Mike.
My personal thoughts of Mike are happy ones, my wishes for Don, Kathy and Mikes family are for lasting memories and quickest of healing. A great guy, supported by the best of family. We all have learned something from these fine people. I am always here for you guys.

You were a competitor's competitor. You were the epitomy of a professional. A person who cared and respected for others as if they were family. You will greatly be missed by many, but never forgotten. Rest in peace my friend.

"I met Mike at the Agua Caliente's Tribal tournament for charity in May 2010. He possessed a well mannered, kind spirit that causes me to remember him even to this day three years after his death. Congratulations to his parents. Death - be not proud."

"I met Mike when he came to Puerto Rico to qualify for the PR Open. I volunteered to caddie for him. Truely amazing talent and a great guy. I was dumbfounded to hear about his death. My deepest condolences to his family and friends."

"Biggn', You'll always be my brother in long drive, although now all the other guys are seniors. I had hoped to joke about their age together with you. We always were the kid's in the group. I smile at every memory, & hope to be as good a dad. ALO"

"My 1st professional long drive event was in 2002 in NC. I will never forget it because I was paired on the tee with Mike. I remember thinking "great, my first event and I have to hit against this guy!" He was a true professional! God Bless you all!"
