Don was born on May 10, 1941, to Austin and Lucille (Cates) Moody. Don was a graduate of Olustee High School. In 1964, Don married Elizabeth Faye (Bagwell) Moody in Boswell, Oklahoma. In this 59-year union Don and Faye were blessed with five children, Raymond, Larry, Harley, Michelle, and Gene.

 

Don was a U.S. Service member, serving a total of 8 years in the United States Army. Don also served as a school board member for Olustee Public Schools for 46 years. In fact, this was a tenure that set a record as the longest serving school board member in the State of Oklahoma. Don was a lifelong member of the Olustee Church of Christ. His dedication and faith to the Lord led him to serve the church in many areas. For many years Don was self-employed, owning and operating Don Moody Dozer Service. Don enjoyed working on Caterpillar equipment and servicing everything with his Victor Torch and Lincoln Welder. He believed that Victor and Lincoln would create an adapter kit that could fix anything.
