Obituary of Michael Duane Moquin
A man who touches many hearts is never really gone. The one thing you can’t fake, or sell is a beautiful and caring soul. To Know Michael Moquin was to love him, admire him, wince at him at times and think he would live forever. He showed his faithful spirit in ways many didn’t know. Often with a random text to someone he felt could use a pick me up. To a joke (often in poor taste) to make a person smile. And even the 1,000th Kelli Bear or Princess story that he forced people to listen to that no one really believed could possibly be true. He was a sales coach, a life coach and often a soul coach that could help you find your own way to the success he could see in your future. He was a beautiful father to his children and bonus children and had a deep urge to watch them all flourish in everything they did. He was also a loving and supportive brother, son and uncle. Was this man perfect, well it depends on who you ask but to say he was the perfect husband would be the greatest of understatements, ask anyone. Michael will be remembered and missed by more people than can even be counted and for reasons he never announced or bragged about. Every person he touched knows how he just had a way of making you feel like you could conquer all. Michael passed suddenly and far, far too early at the end of what was what he would consider a perfect day on this earth that he cherished. He lived a happy and full life surrounded by love, family, friends, the Green Bay Packers, a wife and family who will adore him until their dying days. Congratulations to all of you reading this that had the rare luxury of knowing such a positive, empathetic, charismatic inappropriately funny and devoted friend. You are all the winners and may you find peace in the memories you have of him. Michael requested to be planted as a tree somewhere along the Appalachian Trail beside his wife so they could admire nature for the remainder of their time on Earth, side by side. Until such time, in lieu of flowers he has requested to have a donation made in his honor to the NKY Cold Weather Shelter where he and his family served Christmas Breakfast for many years and continue to support. There will be no service at the funeral home. Online condolence can be sent to the family at www.grubbfuneralhome.com The Moquin family is I the care of Grubb Funeral Home in Wytheville.
