John Earl Moody, 93, of Carrollton, passed away Feb. 13, 2022, at Aultman Hospital, following a brief illness. 

John was born Feb. 20, 1928, to the late John and Ella (Sams) Moody and was a postal carrier at the Carrollton Post Office retiring after 33 years in 1989. During his retirement he began working at Loaves and Fishes food pantry in Carrollton and worked there until he passed away. He was elected to the City Council in 1995 and served two terms as a councilman. 

His love for walking and spending time with family and friends and love for his sweets were only surpassed by his love for his wife, Jeanine Moody, of 70 years.

He will be sorely missed but never forgotten.
