ObituaryDouglas (Doug) Lawrence Moody, 80 passed away peacefully on Friday, April 13, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas, where he called home for the last 16 years. He was born on October 18, 1937 in Dallas, Texas to Velma Woolverton and Lawrence Moody, they preceded him in death, along with his sisters, Doris Taraba and Sandy Hankins.
Doug is survived by Nicki Moody, his wife of 22 years; daughters, Vanessa Moody, of San Antonio, Susan Brothers and husband, Pete, of Joshua, Texas; sons, Stephen Moody and wife, Susan of Grapevine, Texas, Bruce Moody and wife, Pam, of Safety Harbor, Florida; brother, Jerry Moody, of Terrell, Texas; three grandsons, Jeff Riss, Brandon Moody and Chase Moody; granddaughter, Mistie Allen; 7 great grandsons; 1 great granddaughter; best friend, CiCi, his dog; among numerous nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
Doug enjoyed life and meeting people, which lead him to his career in sales. He started off in his early years in door to door sales, selling light bulbs, bibles and vacuums from the trunk of his car. He then went on to sell homes, boats (which was a pretty sweet deal due to he was able to take boats to the lake to ski and fish) and ultimately he found his passion in the flooring industry.
There was nowhere Doug would rather be than fishing at a lake or the ocean until he just couldn't any longer. He really looked forward to summers when some of his older great-grandsons would come to visit and they could get a little fishing in. He also loved hunting when it was possible. His other hobbies included his coin collection, watching football, rooting for The Dallas Cowboys and basketball especially his beloved San Antonio Spurs. The last several months, he spent time on his computer playing games while watching country music videos.
A Memorial Service will be held in Irving, Texas at Chism Smith Funeral Home on May 5, 2018 at 11:00 am.
Date: May 5, 2018
Time: 11:00 am
It's been a lot of years since I've seen Doug but I have found memories of him as a kid. I remember our trips to lake Whitney and to Possum Kingdom. I think Dad and Doug would go scuba diving and catch huge catfish. They would have a fish fry and make homemade ice cream. Sure makes me wish I was a kid again when I think about those days. I remember Doug as always being a fun uncle and I will surely miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and daughter, Tammy Moody
