Floyd K. Moodie, Jr., 71, formerly of Middlebury
HUMMELSTOWN, Pa. — Floyd K. Moodie, Jr., 71, died January 12, 2021, peacefully at his residence in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania. He was born March 9, 1949 in Hardwick, Vermont to Floyd K. Moodie, Sr. and Gladys Bates Moodie.
Floyd married the one and only true love of his life, Barbara J. Foster Moodie, on June 12, 1971. They spent 45 years together, building a life that was grounded in unwavering support and devotion.
Dedicated to life-long education, Floyd was a graduate of Middlebury Union High School ’68, Champlain College / Associates Degree ’70, Plymouth State College / Bachelor’s Degree ’72, and Saint Michael’s College / Master’s Degree ’99.
Either in letters of recommendation, awards he was presented, or in conversations with his coworkers, Floyd was described as professional, hard-working and passionate. He viewed his role as an educator, both at the high school and college level, as an honor in influencing the lives of his students. Known for his attention to detail and honesty, he was well respected in his work as an accountant throughout his career. When not teaching or managing the finances of his various employers, Floyd spent time showcasing his creativity through crafting, cake decorating, and decorating his home for holidays throughout the year.
Floyd was a caring and committed son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. He would do anything to support, protect and provide for his family. Floyd was known by many in the Middlebury and Hershey, Pa., communities as a dedicated fan of anything that included one of his sons or his grandchildren.
Floyd recently described himself as a “Grateful American.” Although he never served in the military, Floyd felt a strong connection to those serving, and particularly for the service men and women from Vermont who lost their lives defending our country. His passion and dedication to these fallen soldiers and their families prompted the creation of a pictorial memorial to service members who were killed serving during the Global War on Terror in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Survivors include his sons, Kraig Moodie and wife Paula of Hershey, Pa., and Keith Moodie and wife Elizabeth also of Hershey, Pa.; by his grandchildren, Alexis, Courtney and Conner; Floyd’s sisters, Marjorie Pfremmer and husband Kent, Marlene Monty and husband Louis, Lila Wilde and husband Anthony all of Lakeland, FL. His in-laws, Wayne Foster and wife Jody of Eagan, Minn., Warren Foster and wife Sally of Brandon, George Foster Jr. and wife Deborah of Middlebury, and JoAnne Myers and husband Ken of Middlebury. As well as, several nieces, nephews, cousins, students, co-workers and friends.
He is predeceased by his loving wife, his parents, brothers Donald and Robert Moodie, and his father-in-law and mother in-law, George and Jean Foster.
A graveside service will be planned for May 2021 in Craftsbury, Vt.
