A. M. Moody III, (known as "Terry Moody"), of Avon, passed away peacefully at 80 years old on April 13, 2017, after defying the odds against cancer for over a decade. Born in New York City, Terry was the son of the late A. M. Moody II and Alice Elizabeth (Williams) Morton. He was a proud graduate of South Kent School, Class of 1956, and Kenyon College, Class of 1960. He then served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. Terry started his career as systems engineer at IBM, and a systems manager and air transportation director for Emery Air Freight. He then decided to alter his career path and served as a mutual fund investment executive at Wright Investors' Service since 1982 and as the Principal of his own business, A M Moody Consulting, since July, 2003. Terry was a noble, humble and honorable man who commanded respect through his leadership and by example. He worked hard to live up to his values and always remained calm through conflict. He saw the importance of community involvement and service to society, and dove into his activities and personal interests whole-heartedly. He was deeply involved in Boy Scouting throughout his life, serving as scoutmaster and council member for many years. Among many other accolades, in 1976, he was bestowed the Silver Beaver award, the highest award conferred by the BSA to adults who have an impact on the lives of youth, through years of service and hard work. Terry ensured that he remained involved in the communities in which he lived, serving on the Zoning Commission in his hometown of Woodbury, CT for many years, and at St Paul's Episcopal Church in Woodbury. In 2002, he converted to the Catholic faith and thereafter became a devout Catholic through the rest of his life. His spirituality allowed him to face cancer without fear and to leave this life in peace. He was an inspiration to so many who knew him. Terry also knew how to enjoy life and found enjoyment in sailing, hiking and skiing. He spent summers sailing the New England seas with his family, spring and fall hiking the New England mountains, and winters skiing in those same mountains. He met his wife Connie while skiing in Vermont and they were married in a small ski town. Terry is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Connie; his children, Elizabeth and Marc; his grandchildren, Annia and Zak; his brother Michael; his sister Diana; and many nieces and nephews. His family will receive friends and relatives on April 17 from 5-7 PM at the Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center, 301 Country Club Road, Avon. All are welcome. A Catholic Mass of Burial will be celebrated at 11AM on Tuesday, April 18 at The Church of St. Ann, 289 Arch Road, Avon. He will be buried with military honors in Rollingsford, NH on Wednesday, April 19. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
