There’s a void in the service bays of Liberty Coach of Florida this morning, one that extends into the hearts of countless co-workers, coach owners, and Liberty family members. Troy Moody was a fixture in Stuart since we opened the doors in 2001, where he earned a reputation as one of the best Prevost service professionals in the business and a truly beloved member of the Liberty Coach team.
Below is a small sampling of the outpouring of messages we’ve received since word of his passing arrived last Thursday. Clearly, Troy will be missed by one and all.
We are heartbroken and saddened with the news of Troy’s passing. He was a small, soft-spoken guy but we lost a giant today! His dedication to Liberty and his customers is unmatched. I will truly miss him as a helping hand, and especially his dry wit and one-liner replies. Please extend our condolences to Lesa as wish we were there in person to hug her and express our sorrow.

A few hours ago, Charlene and I learned the sad news of Troy’s passing.To say we are saddened at this news is an understatement. Although we only had the pleasure to get to know Troy in the last three years, we benefited greatly from his vast knowledge and experience. Troy always treated us with the utmost respect and patience, despite our lack of knowledge and experience. We will miss him terribly.

Best in the business! Troy was always with you when wherever you travelled – I can’t count the times my trip would have been wrecked without him. His knowledge of my buses was amazing. He will be missed!!

I met Troy 15 years ago when I bought my coach from Liberty – such a nice guy with tremendous knowledge of Liberty Coaches. He was my go-to guy whenever I could not figure something out, and members on POG would always refer questions to Troy whenever a Liberty owner had a problem.

This is heartbreaking. Troy was a true lifesaver for all of us, the ONLY person you wanted to talk to when you had a mechanical problem. In Wyoming. At 2:00 a.m. Why? Because you knew… you KNEW …he’d figure it out. No fanfare. No bravado. Just the answer. Every time. He was an asset to all he served. Our heartfelt sympathy to those closest to this wonderful man.
