  1. He was enigmatic, funny, crazy in all the best ways, no matter the day you had, he could make you smile. This is what i remember most. From middle school antics, to our high school health project, to his entire signature over the inside back cover of my junior year yearbook, the time I nearly turned around and chewed out the idiot making rude noises behind me at the bagel store on Christmas eve only to turn around and see him home on leave (one of the best Christmas presents ever). New years eve parties and some great memories in California. Over the last 16 years we ran into each other in the coffee shop or supermarket here and there. He was always so Glen. You never think it will be the last time you see someone. Some people leave these huge unfillable footprints in our lives. It’s important that we remember them for that. For the smile that warmed you up inside, for the times he always had your back, for standing by you because he was your friend and for always treating every person like they mattered. It was never hard to see why people wanted to be around him. Rest in peace Glen, your light will shine on in all of those you left your foot print on, you will be missed incredibly.

  2. I was in the steamfitters apprenticeship with Glen . I remember the most how proud he was to carry the flag in the Labor Day parade He had a smile on his face that no one could knock off. I did not know him well but our paths crossed a few times through the years and through our careers n this union it’s destined to happen a few times .then one day when I was out of work a business agent told me to contact him my name came up as someone he wanted to hire I guess somehow I left an impression on him. We did not know each other well but I know I feel like he was someone that leaves an impression on everyone that meets him . I know he did on me. This is so sad . My condolences to his family he will be missed.

  3. Doc,
    You will always hold a place in my heart. You were always there for us. You fixed us when we were hurt and always made us laugh. You were a gift to us all. You are missed my friend. Semper Fi. Love Gunny T.

  4. I was stationed in San Diego in 1999-2001 when my mom called to tell my my cousin Diane’s son was stationed at Camp Pendleton and we were able to meet up and spend several weekends in the Marina Del Ray/Venice Beach area of Los Angeles with my other cousin Billy Adams and one weekend cousin Frank Daly joined us for a memorable weekend. This wasn’t the first time I met Glen. In November 1990, just 2-days shy of standing on the yellow footprints at Parris Island, my family had an incredible send-off party for me, in New York, with all my family and friends. Among them, was a younger version of a boy that grew up to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and joined the Navy. When I left California in 2001, Glen was just starting his 6-month deployment as a Corpsmen, serving along side the Marines. The course of that deployment changed on September 11, 2001 and all I knew is that when the Marines hit the ground, they’d have the most motivated, skilled Corpsmen by their side. Corpsmen are such a big part of the Marine Corps’ success that is seldom known outside of the Military. Any Marine, on the other hand, will tell you that they go nowhere without our Corpsmen and we hold them in the highest regard. Glen was a great Corpsmen that I didn’t the privilege to serve with, directly, but I know that there’s plenty Marines that he served with that can share his stories of duty and bravery in the face of danger. 

Your service to County and the Navy and Marine Corps team will never be forgotten.

    The love, joy and devotion you shared with your family, friends and anyone else that was lucky enough to be in the room that you lit-up will hopefully comfort your family, friends and brothers-in-arms.

I am a better man because of knowing you. 

Thank you for writing me, along with your classmates, letters in boot camp. Thank you for allowing me to witness you greatness. I’ll miss you more than I could ever express.

    Semper FI,

    Jimmy

  5. Glen was a student of mine in fifth grade. He was a sensitive, gentle, nonjudgmental young man. His accepting smile to those around him, attracted his fellow classmates who knew they were safe around him.
    About 17 years ago Glen appeared at my classroom door while I had students with me. He was wearing military garb and told us that he was now in the military. As we spoke, I saw that saw young man had all the fine qualities now as an adult. I cried to realize the sacrifice he was making to keep us safe and told him that I was honored to have him come back to see me. I have thought of him so often and felt there has always been a deep connection and respect.
    I am beyond adequate words to express how dear to me Glen has been and always will be. I will carry Glen in my heart forever. My most sincere condolences…xoxo

  6. my heart goes out to the Moody family for this tremendous loss. I pray for God to give you strength to face this life without him. I will greatly miss see Glen’s beautiful smiling face . Savinio’s will never be the same again. Good-by my friend, be at peace with Indy. We’ll see each other again some day. Love you!

  7. I remember Glen always giving me a big hug and smile when ever he saw me. Glen you are loved by many and will be missed by many. Rest peacefully, our new Angel.

  8. When I was in junior high school, the girl on my block that I was friends with would constantly talk about this kid she had a crush on. All day everyday!!! She would doodle his name on all her notebooks and write his last name as her last name as if they were married. When we were in high school she would drive past glen wood road frequently even if it was out of the way of where we had to go simply because the name of the road combined his first name and her surname. Ugh after 4 years of hearing about this kid I was so sick of it!!! Until one day I went I er to my friend Jan’s house. Her brother frank had one of his friends over. When I went into the kitchen I saw this gorgeous brunette guy with an infectious smile and immediately I was smitten. Turned out, as Jan and her brother introduced us to one another’s friends, that dreamy guy in the kitchen was Glenn Moody. All of a sudden I understood why/ how my friend would be infatuated with him for years. As we got to know each other more at school functions and parties I also got to see how fun loving and funny and caring he was. When we graduated I remember how proud and excited he was to be able to join the military. After many years in the military and many tours of duty, Glen was still passionate about life and discovered his purpose in starting his military dog foundation. He helped many soldiers and many animals through his foundation. Then, the last time I saw Glenn in person was when he was working at the Dragon boat race festival down port. It had been over 15 years since he last seen me but he remembered me immediately as he help guide me into my boat and said ” good luck kacey” and flashed me that smile of his. I’m glad that will be my last memory of him. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to have crossed lathes with him
