The University of South Alabama is planning a campus memorial service for former president Gordon Moulton following his death over the weekend.

The event is set for Wednesday afternoon at Mitchell Center Arena. A candlelight vigil was planned for Monday evening.

The school says Moulton died Saturday at his home in Daphne after a yearlong fight with cancer. He was 73.

Survivors include Moulton's wife Geri, a brother and a sister.

Moulton retired July 1 after 15 years as president of South Alabama, which is located in Mobile.

The native of Donalsonville, Ga., had worked at the university for 46 years in all.

John W. Smith is serving as acting president of South Alabama, and trustees are interviewing finalists for the position on a permanent basis.
