Obituary of RICHARD THOMAS MOODY
RICHARD THOMAS MOODY (TOM)
It is with deep regret that I have to tell my family, friends and creditors, in as much as Grandmother Moody had 18 siblings, most of whom settled in Manitoba, there must be hundreds of distant relatives out there somewhere, I will not be answering my phone anymore as I have passed away October 26, 2019 while residing at Thorvaldson Care Center in Winnipeg MB.
I am survived by my daughter Carole Sundin (Brooke) Langley BC, my son Alan Moody (Corinne) Boissevain MB and my daughter Joanne Moody Edmonton AB, my grand-daughters Theresa Clarke (Sam), Katherine Poulin (Leo), Alannah Moody and great grand-daughter Amelia Mary Clarke as well as my step family Valerie Price (Bill), David Price, Martin Sundland (Anja) and Jeannine Sundland and her son Morgan.

I wish to say a great “thank you” to my family, step-family, my great friends, Phyllis and Vince Sabatino, and my many other friends for their support and friendship in helping a senior citizen through his many stages in life.
In lieu of flowers, if you would like to make a donation to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Arthritis Society. I know that it will be appreciated, thank you.
In closing I would like to refer you to Tennyson’s Poem…
Crossing The Bar
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson
