On Saturday, September 15th, 2018, Gary Mark Moody passed away at the age of 63 after a brief illness. Gary was born in 1955 in Houston, Texas to Don and Beverly (Combs) Moody. He was active in Boy Scouts and enjoyed a talent for drawing and other creative activities. He was also a pursuer of fun with an uncontrollable propensity for mischief. He was a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation – named Nunni Waki, Chikashshanompa’ for ‘Little Flying Fish’ – and served as a Corpsman in the U.S. Navy. In 1975, Gary married the love of his life, Kathleen Coombes Moody, who preceded him in death in 2009. Together, they raised two daughters, Heather and Lauren. He received a degree in Accounting from the University of Oklahoma and his interest in technology led to a career in tech service firms including the last 20+ years with Oracle Corporation as a Senior Technical Account Manager providing support and solutions for corporate and governme…well, we’d tell you, but then we’d have to kill you.

He is survived by his daughter Heather, her husband, Isaac Hall and their children, Eli and River; and daughter Lauren, and her husband, Vince Dito. His two grandchildren will miss their “G”, as Gary was known to them. Gary is also survived by his fiancé, Heather Rose McChesney and her sons, Max and Jack McChesney.
