Former NAIOP Colorado President Bob Moody dies

Robert F. “Bob” Moody

Former NAIOP Colorado President Robert Frederick “Bob” Moody, 75, died at home April 20.

A celebration of life was April 27 at Christ Episcopal Church in Denver.

Moody was a longtime leader in the business community, representing the interests of Colorado’s commercial real estate industry as a two-time president of the National Association of Industrial & Office Properties and serving as the association’s executive vice president of government affairs. In 2000, while leading NAIOP’s lobbying efforts, he founded the Common Cents Fund, which continues to fund political activity related to commercial real estate. He recently received NAIOP’s prestigious President’s Award for his many years of service and leadership.

Moody served as the interim vice president of public affairs for the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, and played a critical role in multiple ballot initiatives and candidate campaigns in Colorado. Once retired, he developed a new passion for aviation history and spent countless hours volunteering at Wings Over The Rockies.

Moody was a respected lobbyist, wine enthusiast, hockey lover, history buff and voracious reader. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Cheryl; two sons and daughters-in-law, Robb (Jaime) and Chris (Dana); and five grandchildren (Kate, Megan, Lainey, Mason, and Morgan).

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Wings Over The Rockies, wingsmuseum.org/give.
