Craig Thompson Moody (58) of Billerica, MA, passed away on April 29, 2021 after a tragic work accident in Boston, MA. Craig is survived by his loving wife Amber Quist Moody and their children Kevin, Andrew and Gabrielle. He is also survived by his brothers Russel Moody (Cheryl Moody) of Wilton, ME, Alton Moody (Sydney Moody) of Natick, MA, and predeceased by his brother Clark Moody (Lynda Moody) of San Marcos, CA. Craig was a beloved husband, father, uncle and friend to many.
Born on May 19, 1962 in Nanuet, NY to Alton Turner and Sylvia Thompson Moody, Craig attended Nanuet High School and was an avid soccer player and active in the Grace Baptist Church youth group and choir. Some of his favorite memories were canoe trips up to Canada with the choir director and vacations spent on Wilson Lake in Maine. He went on to attend Rockland Community College and then graduated from The Kings College in 1988. During college he traveled throughout the US and England with the college choir program. After college graduation, Craig worked as a Facilities Manager for several companies in New England and most recently was the Chief Engineer for a company in Boston, MA.
Craig was best known for his gigantic smile and witty sense of humor. He had a kind and gentle soul and was liked by everyone who met him. If Craig couldn’t get you to laugh, then no one could. Craig loved to fix and tinker with projects, and it was said that the only thing he could not fix was a broken heart. He was an attentive and caring husband, engaged and active father, fun and caring family member and friend to all. Craig enjoyed singing in the choir, fishing with friends, camping with family, golfing, driving fast boats and riding roller coasters. Craig served selflessly, provided abundantly and loved unconditionally.
Craig’s homecoming to heaven was tragic and unexpected, but there is hope. Craig was a committed and strong believer in Jesus Christ and we know that he is in Heaven, the place he was created to live eternally. We have hope knowing that one day, we too will be joining him for all of eternity. Praise be to God.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
