P/C Bill O. Moody, AP, age 92, passed on November 11, 2022, in his residence at Maris Grove in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania.
Bill’s involvement with United States Power Squadrons dates back to 1975 when he and his wife, Carol, joined Wilmington Power Squadron (WPS), now America’s Boating Club Wilmington. The family was active, participating in most of the varied boating-related activities sponsored by WPS. In post-boating years, he could be readily prompted into sharing some interesting tales relating to the family’s “life and times” aboard the family trawler, Tuffy, on the Chesapeake.
In 1986-1987, he became the Commander of WPS. Bill, by virtue of his year after year of squadron involvement, became quite knowledgeable with our National Organization, the District 5 functions, and, of course, the people and workings of WPS. His sage inputs were, at certain junctions of our history, invaluable. Bill earned 32 Merit Marks and was awarded a Life Membership for his years of participation and the Educational Proficiency Award. His wife Carol supported him, his involvement, and all things WPS throughout his 47-year voyage.
Carol and daughter Kim, our sincerest condolences to you and your family and thank you all for the memories. Carol, it has been a pleasure to have grown old with you folks!
