Gov. Rick Scott's office shaken by a sudden death

TimmoultonIt has been an especially tough week for Gov. Rick Scott and his staff as they support one of their own whose husband died unexpectedly.

Many people know Diane Moulton as the quiet but friendly woman who sits just outside the door to Scott's office. She is the governor's executive assistant, keeping track of his appointments and those of other senior employees.

Her husband of 27 years, William Timothy "Tim" Moulton, collapsed Monday and died later that day. Many members of Scott's staff rushed to be with her at a Tallahassee hospital after hearing of the news.

Mr. Moulton, 55, was a Tallahassee native and owned his own small engine repair business. He performed community service as a Shriner and was a former volunteer with the Leon County Sheriff's Office reserve unit.

"Tim Moulton was one of the most honest and interesting people I have had the pleasure of knowing," Scott said via a statement. "He was a wonderful husband and family man and made countless contributions to the Tallahassee community.  Ann and I will dearly miss him."

His arrangements are as follows:

Visitation: Thursday 6 to 8 p.m., Immanuel Baptist Church in Tallahasee (2351 Mahan Drive).

Funeral services: Friday, 11 a.m., Immanuel Baptist Church.

Burial will following the funeral service at Piedmont Cemetary in Calvary, Ga.
