Tobey E. Moody, obituary

HOPE — Tobey E. Moody, 44, died unexpectedly on January 3, 2020, from heart failure.

Born in Camden, June 28, 1975, he was the beloved son of Wayne and Amy Jameson Moody. Educated locally, he was a 1993 graduate of Medomak Valley High School. Shortly after high school, he moved to Portland and then to Hawaii where he lived for a year until returning home to be with this family and friends.

His careers centered mainly around landscaping, construction and driving truck. He worked at Farley’s where he developed a talent for excavation, next alongside his brother at Moody Construction and Lawn Care, and later delivered for Dead River Oil. His dream, which he made a reality, was driving his own Peterbilt for TMoody Transport.

Tobey was always ready for an adventure, whether it be a quick trip to the store, a ride around the lake on the pontoon boat, or a 5 hour drive up North. He had coached his brother’s baseball team, raced at Wiscasset
Raceway, road tripped across country with his brother and competed in the toboggan races. He looked forward to the annual camping trip over Memorial Day weekend, bear hunting trips with his father and brother Brandon,
his yearly visit to Woody’s Lobstah Fest, and his Black Friday date day with his nieces Brooklyn and Natalie.

He also loved fishing, kayaking, and game nights with friends.

Tobey’s true love were his two children, Sydney and Ethan. He poured his heart and soul into raising them, making sure they always knew how much they were loved and how proud he was of them, instilling in them to always “make yourself proud.”

He will be remembered for his quick wit, sense of humor, compassion, kindness, most infectious laugh, and entertaining story telling skills. He took pride in his relationships and had a way of making everyone feel like they were at the top of his list.

Even during his own struggles he always had a listening ear to lend, whether it be in person, with texts or his posts on ‘Bookface.’ He always put others first, from lending a helping hand when needed, or knowing when to be there even without being asked. Tobey truly loved beyond measure and his passing leaves behind a sea of broken hearts.

His memory will be carried on by his mother and father, Amy J. and Wayne P. Moody; his brothers, Josh Moody, Brandon Moody and his wife Allison and their children, Brooklyn and Natalie (Newt); his two children, Sydney and Ethan. He also will be lovingly remembered by too many cousins, aunts, and uncles to list, but all who meant so much to him; as well as an ocean of friends.

A gathering of love and remembrance was held on January 11, 2020.
