Robert served in the United States Air Force with pride and joy. After serving, Robert then worked as a dedicated New York City bus driver for thirty years. After retiring, he moved to Virginia with the love of his life, Alice (Hodges) Moody.
Robert and Alice were inseparable since marriage in 1989. He forever put Alice first! She was the love of his life, and he is for sure the love of hers. Before Robert’s long term sickness that he battled daily, he enjoyed doing several things. First and foremost, he was a man of God! Faithfully attending church with his wife Alice was his number one priority. He enjoyed playing golf as well as watching it on television. He loved spending time with his grandchildren; he definitely took pride in that! Show him some dominoes, and he was down for a good game! Lastly, Robert absolutely loved football. His favorite team is of course…the one and only Steelers!
Robert is survived by his beloved wife of thirty-three years, Alice Moody. His sons; David Wright, Edward Dolberry, Derrick Dolberry, Malik Moody and Robert Moody Jr. He will forever and always be missed by his fourteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
