Paul Curtis Moody

Friday, August 19, 2011

Men have flown over oceans deep and probed the outer spaces, their earthly fame time will soon dull and erase. Christ gave his promises when He went away, "I'm going higher, far higher some day."

Paul Curtis Moody, age 89, met his Lord at 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, August 18, 2011. Paul's family was by his side.

Paul was born October 21, 1921 in Linton, Indiana. He was the son of James Curtis and Lula Patsy Moody. Paul was preceded in death by his parents Curt and Lula Moody; and brothers James Leon Moody and Garlan M. Moody of Linton, Indiana.

He was married to Norma Moody, his loving wife for 62 years. He is also survived by his nine nieces and nephews. A special thank you to Larry Paul and Connie Moody.

Paul was a World War II Army Air Force pilot in the European Theater and flew reconnaissance missions over Belgium, France and Germany.

Paul worked for IBM as an Engineer in the manufacturing division for 29 years and retired from IBM in January 1984.

I've gone higher to stay. Over the oceans deep and billowing clouds far beyond the deep blue sky; To be with Christ forever to stay.
