Rev. Moody Day

Rev. Moody Day age 84 began his eternal life on June 28, 2017 after a five year battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Moody was born December 7, 1932, the only child of Harrison (Baby) and Vera Agee Day. He was raised in Tallahatta Springs Community. Moody was the store manager of Clarke Parts, Parts Manager of Thomasville Tractor Company for 28 years and a retired pastor. He was called into the ministry and was ordained as a Baptist minister. He preached as a lay-speaker to many local churches and was a pastor to Catherine Baptist Church and Center Point Baptist Church.

He was a man who loved to make others smile, whether it was giving everyone a nickname or by giving one of his famous hugs. He enjoyed gospel music and sang for several years in a gospel quartet.

He is survived by his daughter, Latisa (Stan) Sheehan; four grandchildren, Mandy (Nick) Schaughnessy, Tamara (Caleb) Norris, Keisha April and Beau (Kelli) Sheffield. He was loved by eleven great grandchildren. Moody was preceded in death by his parents, his wife of 50 years, and his only son.

In his spare time, he enjoyed watching the Atlanta Braves, watching Alabama Crimson Tide football, was a WWE fan and an avid turkey and deer hunter. Parkinson’s and Dementia took away his ability to walk but he never lost his ability to laugh and make others laugh. Rosemary Jackson and Audrey Evans kept him supplied with strawberry sundaes which made his face light up every time. In the Thomasville Rehabilitation Center, his nurses and aides were all given nicknames. Their hugs and support made the hard times better for us all.

He was laid to rest in Smith Cemetery in Chilton, AL on July 1, 2017. Bro. Butch Starks and Calvin Wood conducted the service at Oak Grove Baptist Church on Highway 154. Roy and Dawn Brunson honored his memory by singing Precious Memories and Going Home. Pallbearers were Beau Sheffield, Nick Schaughnessy, Caleb Norris, Hunter Norris, Ryan Norris, and Tim Kelley.
