OBITUARY

David Carlton Moody

December 17, 1945June 11, 2021

David Carlton Moody, 75, of Patoka, Indiana went to reside in the Lord’s house on Friday, June 11, 2021. He was born December 17, 1945 in Evansville, a born and bred west sider attending Daniel Wertz and graduating from Reitz High School in 1963.

He was an automobile fanatic, having drag raced at local tracks in his early years. David transitioned to working in the automotive field for many years and was well known in the Princeton area for managing McCullough’s on South Main. He was known as the “go to” person if you were looking for FORD parts. He also loved the open road and worked for several trucking companies over the years. An ideal life for him would have been nomadic. Just give him a comfortable motor home and point the way out of town. David had a beautiful voice and loved to sing, especially gospel.

David was preceded in death by his parents, Shirley C. Moody and Alice Lenore (Terrell) Boyd; grandparents; step-parents, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Sandra G. (Johnson) Moody; son, Robert A. Moody; brother, Daniel Moody (Mary) of Wadesville; sister, Barbara Ramsey (Don) of Rochelle, GA, and nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family would like to extend a huge thank you to the caregivers of Deaconess Health System-Emergency Department, 5100, 3500 and 2600, and finally, Linda E. White Hospice House for the exemplary treatment given in the last days of his life. YOU truly exemplify the Deaconess Difference.
