John Moody, My Friend!
I was fortunate enough to meet a man of great character and conviction and respect in the late 80s. I met this gentleman in 1987. Our paths crossed in these early years when we happened to join Turtle Point at the same time and attended the same interview dinner. Our friendship started soon after that meeting as most do on the golf course. John became my friend as we realized we had many common interests. We shared the passion of running our businesses, closing the deals and entertaining our customers.
As our friendship grew during these early years, John always talked of his family. John didnt use the word love, he did not need to. John beamed of pride as he spoke about his family. Over the years I heard about each member of his family and the specific affect each had on his life. Pride to John was better explained as his feelings for his family.
I knew John to be a man of dignity, respect, love, pride and conviction. As I got to know and respect John, I realized he was a man of character. John was also a hunter, raised his dogs, golfed and loved being around people. John had every-thing a man could need.
Needless to say, I liked John. At Turtle Point we had a reputation of the guys that can complete 18 holes of golf in less than 2 hours. John was never lost for a conversation whether he or I was in the middle of a drive or on the green making a putt. As time went on, our golf evolved into much deeper thoughts about life and less about golf itself. Johns words of wisdom were about what I could expect to happen to my body as I age. As I got older John would say this happens to you about 60 and this happens at 65 then this happen about 70 and damned if he was right. As I grew older and Johns words of experience opened my eyes and things started happening, I would tell others that would follow in our footsteps, John said it would be like this. As we grew older and during our last lunch together, I said to John, isnt it strange after all the guys we met and golfed with and hung out with doesnt really mean much these days. The girls we met and fell in love with all those years ago have now become our best friends and confidants. Johns response was, now you get it.
REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND and save a spot for me on the first tee! I will miss our time together!

I met John 20 years ago and we became good friends. John had a very outgoing personality and never met a stranger. To this day he is the only person I ever golfed with who talked during his back swing. My condolences to his family.
