Oh, Please! He has made lots of $ ripping people off,_________ drugs. Mal-treatment of bodies...... he has been through nothing compared to what he has done to others. Think how it feels at the time you are about bury your mom and someone tries to keep her out of the ground because you hired another funeral home other than his. Or locks the cemetary so your child's headstone can't be mounted because you bought it from some company that he didn't own. He has feelings, too - nah, don't think so. Not for anybody but himself. This is not passing judgment, this is first person experience, facts.
you are exactly right,my own Grandmother had paid for her funeral arrangments years ago but when she passed suddenly there was no"record " of any of it!He was being investigated by the Sylva Police Dept but never heard the outcome .The whole thing just kind of quietened down,this guy seems to have no conscience at all,but thats ok cause he is barely even running the business and before long thats it for him.Alot of this was in the Sylva Herald about a year or so ago,so it is public knowlege by the way.Personally i detest the punk.

Why dont you go to the Sylva Heralds website and under archives put his name in the search field and see for yourself what pops up-you dont have a clue what he has done to many families in this area!

If the good people of Sylva would give a new owner a chance, I would welcome the opportunity to find some business partners to re-open the Funeral Home and Cemetery.

Seems they are all kicked back watching the hay grow in loves field,, they have switched business's is seems,, think they have turned the cemetary into a hay field to sell some hay later.
Reg Jr. your a real prick, and everyone else involved with that joint falls not far behind you.
Why can't you disrespectful morons atleast hire someone to mow the dang cemetary? or better yet if your that broke Reg Jr, you spoiled little brat, why don't you go mow it yourself?

I read the Legal in the Sylva Herald this week (Sep 16, 2010), and the "court filing" article in The Smoky Mt News by Quintin Ellison (Sep 14,2010). The Legal says that anyone having claims or complaints against Moody's are requested to submit thier claims to Shela Gahagan, Receiver,at 168 Tate St, Waynesville, NLT 18 Oct, 2010...Does this mean that headstones previously ordered and of course paid for, but not installed yet, will be installed before Moody's dissolution? If not,then what recourse do we have? Thanks, Cinda Sherrill ([email protected])

Seems many of these comments are CRUDE and vicious. How many of you people that are so outspoken were directly or indirectly involved in any dealings with Moody Funeral Home? I dare say - none. It's just your typical senerio of "while the dog's down - lets kick him again" that so often happens in Sylva.
Has everyone forgotten the good deeds done by this business (paved church parking lots, donations to schools and colleges, etc.)? And where are the ugly comments about those people who never paid their bills? "May he without sin, cast the first stone". And let's hope no one digs out the skeletons in your closet - which we know everyone has. It's obvious from the postings on this page - you nor your family will shown any mercy. SHAME ON YOU ALL!

So sorry to hear these horror stories. Most funeral homes are staffed by caring people who do a very difficult job. please do not let this one bad apple get to you. he will be judged fairly in time by what he has done. when his time comes sounds like he will have some on the other side waiting for him!

It's nearing the end of 2011 and headstones ordered and PAID FOR IN ADVANCE back last FEBRUARY have not been installed. What's going on? The place was closed when a friend drove by and the cell # we have is disconnected. This almost amounts to grand theft IMHO

That's Reg, Jr., alright. Everyone who ever worked for him had to kiss his a$$ and do as he did or he made sure they left one way or another. Dirtiest bunch of crooks around stayed loyal to him, liars, cheats, thieves, etc. Clean living working people never qualified to be his employees. Whistle blowers really got it. He should have gone to jail over and over. Most people have no idea ........!
