Neville Demetrius Moodie

July 2, 1955 — May 20, 2024

Warner Robins

Neville Demetrius Moodie, who was also well known as “Monty,” was born on July 2, 1955, in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, to Roy and Pearline Moodie. In Jamaica, he attended Primary school and York Castle High in Browns Town, where he graduated at 12 with an advance high school diploma.

In 1975, he moved to the United States to Huntington Station, New York. There he resided with his mother and siblings until his enlistment in the U.S. Army in 1976. During his time in the military, he served as a Medic in the 24th infantry at Fort Stewart in Hinesville, Georgia. In 1980 upon his discharge, he relocated back to New York to be with his family. Considering he loved working as a Medic, he started his employment at Huntington Hospital, where he worked as a Tech. Soon after he attended college while working and gained his LPN licenses.

Monty had a big heart and a lot of compassion when it came to the troubled youth. He was also employed and worked at youth group homes, including some at St. Mary’s and as a Psychiatric Aide at the Brunswick Hospital.

As a compassionate and caring man, he always went out of his way to help others. He always had an encouraging word for anyone he met and greeted everyone with a smile. He enjoyed hanging out with his children, especially Tristan, considering he was the closest. He also had a very soft heart for his grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, especially Tyren, they were literally best friends.

He also had a great love for his plants and music which he shared along with his siblings. They spent many of nights at Master P’s house. When the mic was in his hands, he was “DaddyMo,” and everyone knew it. He definitely passed this love down to his children, grandchildren, and now, great grandchildren.

In 2004, Monty and most of his family moved to Warner Robins, Georgia. He worked at Warner Robins Rehabilitation in the maintenance department until he left in 2015. While there he gained many friends, some of which turned into family like, “Broman” Johnny Carswell. He was definitely his brother from another mother, as the saying goes.

At this time, he was able to truly commit himself to his family full time. He loved spending time with his grandchildren. They could often be found playing at the park, or at the pools. He would always make their sporting events as well. He also enjoyed driving his friends to run errands, or picking up his nieces, nephew, and grandchildren from school. He made sure he gave all of his family members names. When he was in the hospital, he would still reach out to his family to check on them.

When his health began to fail, he was faced with many challenges. Despite the challenges, he persevered and fought through many health scares along the way. His children and his sibling became his caregivers, ensuring that he was doing what he needed to do to take care of his health. Monty’s spirit throughout these challenges was a testament of his determination, resilience, and strength. He was never alone while fighting his health battles. Not even a second went by that Monty was not showered with love and tended to with care. He was often reminded everyday of how much he was loved until God called him home on Monday, May 20, 2024.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Pearline Moodie; and sister, Joy Moodie.

His memory will forever be treasured by his children, Sharena Jackson, Neville Schum (Jennifer), Greg Smith (Quinci), and Tristan Moodie; his siblings, Errol, Nellie “Loraine”, Patrick, Angus “Bunny”, Valentine, Christopher, Roy, Diane, and Pamela; his grandchildren, Tajai, Tyrell, Tyren, Damani, Carter, Chyna, and Mia; his great-grandchildren, Rylee and Rylen; as well as a host of  nieces and nephews, other beloved extended family members, and friends.

Monty was loved dearly. He will always be remembered for his love, kindness, selflessness, and generosity to everyone.

Monty aka “Pops” you will truly be missed.
