Gaynol D. "Moe" Greenwood, 86, of Seymour, died Nov. 13, 2021. A problem-solving engineer at heart, the family is certain the pearly gates are already opening smoother, even if there's an extra spring leftover, now that he's had a a chance to work on them. He is survived by his wife, Faye Hochnedel; his son, Brad (Kristen) Greenwood, of Clinton; his daughter Amy (Rick) Bookwalter, of Virginia; his step-son Marcus (Susan) Fitzsimmons, of Thompson's Station; grandchildren, Matthew (Sheryl) Bookwalter, Joshua (Samantha) Bookwalter, Daniel (Katie), Josiah (Elizabeth) Bookwalter Benjamin (Paige) Bookwalter, Samuel Bookwalter, Mary Bookwalter, Jonathan Bookwalter, Michael Bookwalter and Katelyn Fraker; 10 great-grandchildren; and his sister Mona (Russell) Blair, of Illinois. Moe served overseas in the U.S. Army Signal Corps during the Korean conflict and returned home to earn his BS in mechanical engineering from the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy (1962). He worked as a project engineer, dept. superintendent, project manager, general manager, partner, owner and instructor in paper mills and metal fabrication plants in the Midwest before becoming director of facilities planning for UT Medical Center. Since his retirement from UT in 1995, Moe has been best known as the photo half of MoeFaye Travel, where he and Faye put together trips for seniors ranging from day trips to cross country ventures and international excursions. He was a member of First United Methodist Church in Sevierville and of Tri-County Lions Club in Seymour. He participated in multiple volunteer projects both at home and abroad, including lengthy mission trips and instruction missions to Slovakia, Belize, Kenya and Russia. Between the travel business and his volunteer efforts, Moe made it to six continents, sailed on most of the major oceans and a host of the world's major rivers, always with his camera in hand. In retirement, he helped design the senior center in Sevierville, sat camelback in the shadow of the pyramids, befuddled guides with his questions while standing on the Great Wall, rode ziplines through the South American rainforest, dug wells in Africa, was "lost" for a week in Eastern Europe and yet always found time to tinker with something to try and make it work more efficiently. At his request, a celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2022. In lieu of flowers, consider donations to support Tri-County Lions Club at OR to Wesleyan Wanderers, c/o FUMC of Sevierville, 214 Cedar St., Sevierville, TN 37862.
