Richard "Bug" Moody

April 19, 1938 — February 27, 2024

Richard Arlyn Moody, affectionately called "Bug" by many of his family and friends, passed away on February 27, 2024, at the age of 85.  He was born in Dallas, Georgia on April 19, 1938, the son of the late Willard and Myrtle Hulsey Moody. Bug was a skilled residential carpenter who took pride in his work, leaving behind a legacy of craftsmanship. Bug found joy in watching sports, with baseball being his ultimate passion. An avid fan of the Atlanta Braves, he often spent his time following games and cheering on his favorite team. His love for sports extended beyond baseball as he also enjoyed watching college football and women's college basketball. He had a zest for life and cherished his travels, and when he was younger, he loved to go bird hunting. He was known for his generosity, always carrying hard candies to share with everyone he met, earning him the endearing nickname "Candy Man."

In addition to his parents, Bug was also preceded in death by his loving wife, Betty Jo Williams Moody; their twin sons, Terry and Jerry Moody; his brothers: Ed Moody, Bobby Moody, Jesse Moody and Butch Moody; his sisters: Polly Wright and Margaret Carroll.

Bug is survived by his children and their spouses: Sherrie (David) Fuller, Danny (Kelle) Moody, Sharon (Mitch) Gill, and Donna (Brad) Knight, as well as several grandchildren - Shane (Bekah) Moody, Josh (Lindsey) Crowe, Jacob Crowe, Alisha (Jamie) Smith, Lindsey (Brice) Bingham, Justin (Summer) Crowe, and Zach Gill; eight great grandchildren and one on the way; several nieces and nephews, and a very special friend, Maxine Harris also survive.

The family will receive friends at Clark Funeral Home on Saturday, March 2, 2024 from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm.

The Funeral Service will be held on Sunday, March 3, 2024, at 2:00 pm in the Clark Funeral Home chapel with Brother Terry Fennell officiating.  Shane Moody will deliver the eulogy.  

Interment will follow in Peaceful Meadows Memorial Cemetery with Danny Moody, Shane Moody, Josh Crowe, Justin Crowe, Jacob Crowe, Jamie Smith and Zach Gill serving as Pallbearers
