Ronald Lee Moody

Moody, Ronald Lee, 61, of Holiday, passed away on September 27, 2016 at the Regional Medical Center of Bayonet Point surrounded by loving family. Ronald was born on May 8, 1955 in New Port Richey, Florida. He was the son of John Moody and Ruth Ann Wallace. Ronald was married to Karen (Gruber) on November 4, 1989, in Hudson, Florida; they were married for a wonderful 27 years.

Ronald worked on and off throughout the years drilling water wells, starting at a young age with the family business and then other local companies. Ronald’s passion was drilling wells but unfortunately over time jobs became scarce. He later went on to work as a custodian for Anclote High School starting in 2009. He enjoyed fishing with his brother, father, and grandsons, spending time with his family, and helping others in the community where he lived and also at the TAT Clubhouse.

Ronald was predeceased 3 years ago by his truly loved Yorkie dog named Smokey.
