Michael Dale Moody Sr., 61, of Franklin, passed peacefully Aug. 9, 2020, at his lake home in Waverly, Tennessee, his favorite place on earth.

He is survived by sons Michael Dale Moody Jr. (Katie) and Vincson Scott Moody; grandchildren Michael Blake Moody and Lexie Mae Moody; loving companion Christy Langford; siblings Suzanne Moody Thomas, James Moody Jr. and Stephen Moody; multiple nieces and nephews; and a host of devoted and loving family and friends.
