Obituary for Donald C. Moody, NEW DATE/TIME
Services have been re-scheduled for Saturday, October 1 at 11:00AM at the Clam Falls Lutheran Church with Pastor Gary Rokenbrodt officiating.
Donald C. Moody, 87 died Sat, Sept 3, 2011 at Frederic Nursing Home.
He was born Jan. 1, 1924 to Frank and Ethyl (Carlson) Moody Frederic, WI. He attended Frederic High School where he played basketball and boxing. Don served in the Army Air Force and spent some of his service time in India. He married Lois Sederlund on Oct. 17, 1946 when they eloped to Pine City. He and Lois farmed near Clam Falls where he enjoyed being the catcher for the Clam Falls baseball team. They later moved to Alaska and lived there for 9 years where Don worked doing construction and mail delivery. Next they moved to Bloomer where they owned and operated a hotel/restaurant/bar. They returned to the farm at Clam Falls to raise their 2 sons. They farmed near Centuria for several years and once again returned to Clam Falls to retire. Don enjoyed visiting with people as he sold the vegetables they grew in their huge garden.
Some of the activities he enjoyed were Sunday afternoon golf outings with his two sons, and also playing any type of cards with his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and anyone else who wanted to play. Don was an avid Minnesota Viking fan, whom he was teased about constantly from family and friends. He enjoyed watching any type of sports that happened to be playing on TV. You know you were truly loved if you were ever called Sunshine, Tupydoo or Pumpkin as he had many nicknames he enjoyed calling people. He enjoyed when company came over to visit and he liked to laugh at the practical jokes he played.
Don is greatly missed, remembered and loved by his wife Lois, son Rodney (Jackie) Clam Falls, daughter-in-law Donna, Clam Falls grandchildren Shannon (Kelly) Davis, Rockford IL, Chris (Stephanie) Moody, New Richmond WI, Jason (Eva) Moody, Siren, Jessica (John Stoeklen) Bowen, St. Croix Falls, Jody (Heidi) Moody, Siren, Jeanine Moody Clam Falls, 19 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren.
Don was preceded in death by his son Larry, parents, brother Erling and infant daughter Darcell.
