Obituary for Jeffrey West Moody II

Jeffrey West  Moody II
Jeffrey West Moody, II, 29, of Mount Vernon, Ill., (formerly of O'Fallon, Ill.), born December 18, 1988 in Belleville, Ill., passed away on July 11, 2018 in Mount Vernon.

Jeffrey was a fun-loving person with an infectious smile. He was passionate about snowboarding and spent many days hitting the slopes at Hidden Valley which was his happy place. He hoped to one day move to Colorado and continue snowboarding. He enjoyed building koi ponds, doing yard work, running, working out on his weight bench and being a dare-devil. When he was younger, Jeffrey enjoyed dirt biking and horseback riding with his dad, stepmom, and step siblings in Eminence, MO. He spent his last few months enjoying time with his mom, sister, niece, and stepdad in Mt. Vernon. Jeffrey adored his niece Madison and she loved her Uncle Jeffrey.

Even through stormy times, we loved Jeffrey unconditionally. Words cannot describe how terribly he will be missed. Jeffrey left us too soon, but we believe he is now resting his weary head in God's hands.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Everett Moody and Amos Ing; grandmother, Jo Ann Ing. He is survived by his sister, Trisha Moody (Stevo Barringer); mother, Cheryl Varady and stepdad, Michael Varady; dad, Jeff Moody and stepmom, Donna Moody; niece, Madison Barringer; and grandmother, Dottie Moody.

A special thank you to relatives and friends that reached out to Jeffrey, offering your love and encouragement. He never walked his path alone. We are sad, but we know we will see Jeffrey again someday. Until then, we will look for his smile in the clouds, the sun and wherever we can find it.
