Mr. Wintez T. Moody
Lester Lackey & Sons Funeral Home

Wintez Tavorious Moody was born on June 7, 1996 in Covington to Ms. Shelia Gaither and the late Mr. Winfred Moody.

Wintez received his education in Newton County and was a 2015 graduate of Eastside High School. During his time at Eastside, he played basketball with the school’s team, the Eagles. Wintez had a love for fishing, riding his dirt bikes and playing basketball. Most of all, he had an amazing love for his two boys and family. A bit goofy and silly at times, he was known to be a lady’s man. He was a member of the Bethel Grove Baptist Church, Mansfield.

Wintez departed from his loving family on Nov. 5, 2018. To many, it seems too soon, but to God, it was time for him to say farewell. He was preceded in death by his father, Winfred Moody “Wimp” and one brother.

Wintez leaves to love and cherish his memories, his loving mother, Ms. Shelia Gaither, of Covington; two great boys that will one day be men, Kaycen Amari and Kainen Jamir Moody, both of Covington; three brothers, Mr. Tyeas Standford of Covington, Mr. Derrick Moody and Mr. Brian (Shanika) Moody, both of Atlanta; two sisters, Ms. Shannecca Gaither of Covington and Mrs. Patriyce Moody-Clark of Stone Mountain; grandparents, Ms. Beulah Hardeman, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene (Lottie) Gaither, all of Covington; a long time mentor Mr. Bobby Maddox, where Wintez participated with the youth of Bethel Grove Baptist Church; a host of uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and caring friends.
