Biography

American financier, entrepreneur and philanthropist, who was heir to a financial empire as well as a convicted felon and originator of the Moody Gardens resort complex. Moody was also the grandson of insurance and financial tycoon William Lewis Moody, Jr.

Moody was well known for eccentric behaviour, such as building a slide from his bedroom window to a swimming pool, where he kept pet penguins, and wearing house slippers wherever he went. Moody, who was gay and never married, spent the final years of his life involved in civil court cases. His longtime partner was a former Las Vegas dancer. Moody felt that the court system was corrupt and believed that his enemies used the legal system to try to steal his wealth and power; he claimed to have employed "several hundred" lawyers in various legal battles and even at one point hired nationally-known lawyer Roy Cohn to help in his ongoing litigation problems.

Moody died at his home in Galveston on 25 June 1996, aged 63, after suffering from years of chronic high blood pressure and kidney disease.
