He is survived by his son, Kenneth Joseph (Joey) Moody Jr. , his wife Lucy (Aly) and their 5 month old daughter, Marley. All of Dallas, TX., Sister, Lisa Moody-Sanders of Arlington, TX; Niece, Courtney Sanders Cline and her husband, Ray Cline, of Carrollton, TX; Nephew, Matt Sanders and his wife, Kelli Kader, of Dallas, TX.

Mr. Moody was a proud graduate of the Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville, GA, and served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS John F. Kennedy.
In his later years, Mr. Moody had become physically disabled. Yet, he still managed to retain his quick wit and mischievous sense of humor. He remained a lifelong fan of his Arkansas Razorbacks and The Dallas Cowboys – and continued to share these passions with his son, Joey.
A private graveside service is being held for the family at Murfreesboro Cemetery.
