Clarence Moody was born Feb 13, 1948. He grew up in Buffalo, Depew, and Lancaster NY where he attended school and lettered in track, softball, and baseball. After graduation from high school, Clarence joined the United States, Army serving three years as a (SGT) Mechanic. He loved all things mechanical and had a stellar 33-year career as a Master mechanic at National Fuel Gas company in Buffalo, NY before retiring. Maintenance was not the only thing Clarence excelled at; he loved to build things like his Pilot Simulator. You could have called him a “Renaissance Man” as he enjoyed reading, singing, collecting recipes, bowling, photography, fishing, boating, his computers, and most things technical. Clarence greatest achievement though was surrendering his life to Jesus Christ. As a man of deep faith, he could be found in and around the church serving in various capacities. His love and commitment to Jesus was evident in his, teachings, daily devotions/discussions, and his generosity to so many others in need. He left this earth to go see Jesus; way too soon after a sudden illness on Dec 22, 2022. He leaves to mourn his loving and beautiful wife Alma Louise Moody (Louisville, KY), mother; Mary Taylor Moody (Louisville, KY), a sister; Diane Moody Gayles (Buffalo, NY), a brother; Hansiel Moody (Buffalo, NY). He was predeceased by his father, Harvey Moody Sr., son Victor Miller, and two brothers: Noel Moody and Harvey Moody Jr. Clarence was a very proud father, grandfather, and great grandfather to the 12 “beats of his heart” (Christian Miller, Franklin Pringle, Frederick Pringle, Felicia Pringle, Simone Pringle, and Olivia Pringle, Tara Jefferson (Thomas, Thomas Jr and Ayanna), D. Samuel Hopkins, and Adam Hopkins. Additionally, he loved a host of nieces, nephews and adopted “children in-love” His greatest legacy may very well be the unconditional love, encouragement, mentorship, and support he gave to so many who called him “Pops, dad and grandpa” with great admiration and love. Clarence felt God had called him to mentor to a plethora of young men and women.
