Allen Moody passed away on May 10, 2017 at the age of 72.
The son of Aaron and Mary Stephens Curtis was born October 1, 1944 in Whitewater, Kansas. He was raised in rural Kansas where he attended Whitewater and Remington schools before attending Newton High School. There he graduated as a member of the class of 1963.
After graduation Allen joined the United States Army. Upon being discharged on Oct. 15, 1968 Allen returned to his family who was living in Raton, New Mexico.
There he took a job working in the local coal mines. However a short time later he and his family moved back to Kansas. Eventually settling in Newton.
There one evening while attending a local CB radio meeting, he met Connie Lord. They would marry on June 11, 1976.
For a short time they continued living in Newton. Then one day, they decided it was time to move. So they threw a dart and it hit the map near Claremore, Oklahoma. A short time later they were living there. They lived in town for a short time, before finding their ideal home in the country.
Allen had many hobbies and pastimes he enjoyed. Living in the country allowed him to be close to nature.
He loved hunting, fishing and feeding all the local wildlife. He was also very talented at building things.
In fact he was so good that he often made his own parts to fix other things that were broken. However his true love was his family and spending time with them was what truly made him happy.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Aaron and Mary Curtis and son, Scott Allen Moody.
Survivors include his wife Connie of the home; daughter, Rhonda Biehler and husband Chris of McPherson, Kansas; and sons, Richard Lord and Robert Lord of Foyil; grandchildren, Anthony, Chrisanna, Ryan, Misty, Mark, Marci, Christen, Jesse, Ashley, Emily, Steven, Hannah, Sadie and Kevin; 27 great-grandchildren with 2 more on the way.
