Deacon John Moultrie

June 17, 1923 — March 18, 2017

Dea. John Emmitt Moultrie was born to the late Rev. R. S. Moultrie and Mrs. Arrie McCoy Moultrie on June 17, 1923, in Dougherty County. His mother preceded him in death, and he was reared by his late father and his wife, Mrs. Sallie Gordon Moultrie.
He attended the public schools of Dougherty County and graduated from the Madison Street High School. Upon graduation, he joined the United States Navy and served a tour of duty. The vines of his life were in Dougherty County.
At an early age, he knew that he would need a savior in this life and the life to come. He joined the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church and was a faithful servant until he was called to receive his reward. He served as a deacon, choir member and on the finance committee, just to name a few of the ministries of which he was a faithful servant.
“Uncle Jump,” as he was affectionately called by his nieces and nephews, was never idle. He was a master painter trained by his father. He retired from McGregor-Brunswick and Miller Brewing
He was united in holy matrimony to Ms. Inez Doster on July 29, 1960. She preceded him in death after 55 years of marriage. To this union, no children were born, but they reared the youngest sibling of the Doster children, Frankie. She was the joy of their life. They had many other children of family, church and community members. His nieces and nephews were all precious to him and he to them.

He leaves a legacy to his family: a devoted daughter, Ms. Frankie Doster, One brother, Mr. Huley (Doretha) Moultrie; One sister, Ms. Alice Moultrie; Five sisters-in-law, Ms. Corinne Moultrie and Ms. Dorothy Moultrie, all of Albany, GA, Ms. Mary Doster, Ms. Vernell Doster; and One brother-in-law, Mr. Charles Doster of Cordele, GA; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Viewing for Mr. Moultrie will be held TODAY Friday,  March 24, 2017 from 12pm-8pm at Poteat Funeral Home, 1015 Cedar Avenue, Albany, Georgia 31701
