Family & friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Thursday, October 11th in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Route 107) Revere from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., for Timothy R. Moody, Sr., who died at his Wakefield residence on Monday, October 8th, following a lengthy battle with metastatic cancer. His Funeral Service will be conducted in the Funeral Home following the visitation on Thursday at 7:15 p.m. Interment will be held privately.

Born & raised in Augusta, Maine, he came to live in Revere over 50 years ago. In 2007, he & his family moved to Wakefield. After serving with the U.S. Marine Corps for almost seven years, in Viet-Nam, he was discharged as a Sergeant (E-5). Timothy was the recipient of the Purple Heart & several other commendations & citations for his service to his country. As a result of the insidious injuries he sustained while in Vietnam, he was overcome with PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder). Over the years, he had struggled with the horrific cause and effects of this vile disease and was able to cope well. In fact, he had decided to make a career change & returned to school, and graduated from ITT Technical Institute, with a degree in Structural Engineering. He secured a position as a Structural Engineer with Stone & Webster for almost ten years. Soon after he was diagnosed with a cancer, that became metastatic and ravaged his body, leaving him 100 pounds less in weight. Prior to his illness, he was an active member of the V.F.W. Mottollo Post #4524 of Revere. Timothy was inspiration to all with his positive manner in which he dealt with this illnesses and subsequent disabilities. Always he maintained a deep and abiding time for his time with the U.S. Marines & the opportunity to serve his country.

He is the most beloved husband of 50 years to Antoinette “Ann” (Cali) Moody with whom he celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on October 6th with a dinner party with 50 close relatives surrounding them. He is the cherished father of MaryRose Burrows & her husband, Brian of Epsom, New Hampshire, Timothy R. Moody, Jr. & Dawn M. Moody & her fiancée, “Brazil”, all of Malden. He is the most proud grandfather to 13: Joseph D., Ryan T., Kahla A., Brian Jr., Shawn M., Stephanie E., Brandon M., Jessica J., Christopher A., Sydney M., Anthony K., Kendell M. & Destiny M. He is also lovingly survived by 5 (five) great-grandchildren: Lyndsey, Jacoby, Julianna, Carter & Hailey & many nieces & nephews. He is the dear brother to Della Gray & her husband, Douglas of Lewiston, Maine & Sharon True of Augusta, Maine.

    Papa, you were quite the character and knew how to make people laugh! We only knew you by “Papa” because that’s what Kendell always called you. He adored you and loved you more than you’ll ever know! My son and I were lucky enough to have had the pleasure of meeting you through Kendell, and although we only knew you for a few short years, we learned a lot about you in that short period of time. We learned how much you loved your family (especially your grandchildren) and how proud you were to be a United States Marine (and a great one at that)! Papa, we just want to thank you for your service and for all of your sacrifices! You were truly an amazing man❤️ You will be missed by many, but never forgotten! May you rest in the arms of the angels my friend
