Stanley Moody

Dan McClelland

Stanley Wilson Moody went to be with his wife in heaven on February 11, 2017 at the age of 93. He had recently resided at Mercy Living Center and Will Rogers of Saranac Village.
Stanley was born in Saranac Lake on June 19, 1923 to Leslie and Alma (Willson) Moody.
He graduated from Tupper Lake High School on June 23, 1941.
His hobby of building model airplanes as a teen became a reality after graduation, when a vacancy occurred at a government training center for airplane assembly. He embarked on a five-month course in airplane assembly in Barker, N.Y. He then accepted a job with the Glen L. Martin Company in Baltimore, Maryland as a body riveter on the Martin bombers.
When he was later called up for military service, his physical revealed he had contracted tuberculosis and soon after found himself curing at the Ray Brook Sanatorium. Once released with a clean bill of health, Stanley returned to Tupper Lake where he successfully wooed and married "the greatest woman who ever lived,” Patricia Kavanagh. They were married on July 8, 1944 at St Alphonsus Church in Tupper Lake. It was a sad day when Patricia passed away on September 30, 2004.
Stanley owned and operated Moody's Atlantic Service Station on Demars Blvd. for many years. After he sold the service station, he managed Eddie Wolf's Arco Station. He later worked in the kitchen and in the housekeeping department at Sunmount DDSO, until his retirement on January 28, 1987.
Never one to sit idle, he picked up a few "part time gigs" following his retirement, as well as volunteering at the local food pantry collecting and distributing food to the needy. He also drove cancer patients to and from Plattsburgh so they could get their chemotherapy during that important time in their lives.
He enjoyed traveling to visit his children, many of whom had scattered across the U.S. He was always a big football and baseball fan and had many "favorite" teams primarily the Dallas Cowboys and Boston Red Sox. Anyone that knew Stan knew which team he was rooting for, and it wasn't the Yankees! He enjoyed league bowling , and friendly competition with his sons on Sunday mornings and continued to bowl in the Senior League until he was 90.
When he moved to Will Rogers In Feb. of 2015 he was welcomed with open arms to his new family there.  He made some fast friends there and gave most of the residents and employees there a nickname, right "Speedy"? He enjoyed the company of his meal time table mates. They made sure he was well fed and didn't miss dessert. The family wants to especially thank the folks at the infamous "Rowdy" table - Jim Glavin, Hazel LaBounty and Louise LaFountain for watching out for Dad while he was there. He also enjoyed doing his daily crossword puzzles because he loved the challenge.
He is survived by two sisters - Marilyn Leroux of Raleigh, N.C. and Carol LeRoux of Star Lake, four sons Vincent (Joy), William (Tina), James and Timothy, all of New York and four daughters Sheryl Briggs of Colorado, Kathy (Ron) Albert of Tupper Lake, Jo-Anne (Ed) Motteram of Texas, and Peggy (Ron) Holt of Tennessee. He is also survived by 15 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and his cat Oscar.
He was pre-deceased by his parents, his beloved wife Patricia, his oldest daughter Suzanne Ogden and her husband William S.S. Ogden II and their infant child William S.S. Ogden III and his grand-daughter Beth Shore and great grand-daughter Grace Colbert. He was also pre-deceased by his three brothers Warren, Roland and Leonard and his sister Wanda (Polly) Crary and his beloved cat "Jamie".
There were no calling hours at the request of the deceased. Contributions may be made in Stanley's memory to the Tri-Lakes Humane Society in Saranac Lake or the Saranac Lake Voluntary Health Association, Inc. through the Stuart-Fortune-Keogh Funeral Home on Cliff Ave in Tupper Lake.
