Darryl G. Moody 01/09/2021

Darryl G. Moody, 45, of Attleboro, formerly of North Attleboro, passed away peacefully on January 9, 2021 after a long courageous battle with cancer, at home. He was the beloved husband to the love of his life, Lucia M. Valencia, to whom he was wed on July 11, 2020 at York Beach, ME.

Born on August 1, 1975 in Attleboro, MA, Darryl grew up in North Attleboro and was a 1993 graduate of North Attleboro High School. He went on to further his education, earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from Fitchburg State College and later, his Associate’s Degree in Computer Technology from Fisher College.

Prior to this he had also been employed by Mini-Systems in North Attleboro and Attleboro, MA, in Sales and Marketing for eight years, as Marketing Manager for three years, and in Production for two years.

Darryl loved to play golf with his coworkers and friends and having firepits. He enjoyed taking trips to the canal on Cape Cod and York Beach, ME with Lucia. He even just enjoyed time spent relaxing with her and sometimes others, over a barbecue and some of his famous margaritas or mojitos with music playing various artists. Christmas was always a huge favorite of his and Lucia’s- decorating with the kids, playing Christmas music and watching holiday movies. The times that Darryl enjoyed the most, were spent in the company of his family and friends.

 In addition to his beloved wife, Lucia, he is survived by his parents: Glenn L. Moody and his wife Delores of Attleboro and Deborah J. (Dawes) Moody and her companion Bob Bukin of North Attleboro. He was the devoted father of: Andrew, Alyxandria, Isabelah, and Angelica Valencia all of Attleboro.

  • Words can not say enough about my step brother, great man, husband, son, brother, friend, loving soul, kind hearted, funny, down to earth and so much more that words can not even describe. This was a soul whos life was taken far too soon because of cancer, and it was not fair to hear about him being pulled down daily till he could not take it any more, life can be unfair. We must remember all the positive times we all had, and the great memoires everyone shared, was truly a great man in everyone eyes. Some times I wish we did not grow up and go in different directions in life that’s the the hardest part I face.  Our lives over take us in so many different directions. Its important to take the time to stop call, visit, stay in touch with people you love, care about or are friends with. Live your days to the fullest…Darryl I know would tell use this 
    Lucia a very strong woman that dedicated herself to take care of Darryl in everyway possible, she walks in shoes no man could ever fill she truly is a tremendous woman, Thank you for everything you have done….
    My most memorably days is with Darryl, Eric and I as young kids just being kids, and Darryl’s wedding in York ME, and a spot with so many memories forever.
    You are never forgotten, in my prayers and I will always think about you, Love Darry 1-20-21

  • Darryl was a treasure adored by his aunts, uncles and cousins these past 4 decades .   An incredibly thoughtful, appreciative, loving and kind hearted human being,  His fortitude and sense of hope in the face of adversity always left us in awe and love.  Heaven has truly gained what we lost on Earth.  Darryl is and always will be a treasure. 

  • So many mixed emotions after hearing he was sick, I never got to know Darryl, not by my choice, but by his. We weren’t friends, again not by my choice. I couldn’t play sports or go to social events, I was deemed not worthy and never given a chance. That being said I feel for his Family and Loved ones. he was younger and should never have suffered. I am truly sorry for their loss.

  • This breaks my heart. Way too young and a such wonderful person. 
    We had been through so much together and always remained friends. 
    To his family, may you remain strong knowing he is now at peace. Darryl was beloved by so many and this has certainly shaking up our hearts. 
    Rest in Peace Darryl and know that you have always had a special place in my heart ❤
     You are with many wonderful angels… Shake things up up there, get them singing, dancing and “jump around”
