Billy Hodges

Bill was born at home in Aubrey on February 3, 1931. His parents were Samuel and Martha Weddle Hodges. After graduating from Pilot Point High School, he served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He was a member of the VFW and the American Legion. He married Judy Malone Hodges on February 3, 1968, at Pleasant Valley Christian Church in Amarillo. Bill was selling rose bushes for the Pleasant Valley Lions Club the day they married. After his retirement from the City of Amarillo, Bill and Judy moved to Clarendon to grow a garden. They found the people very friendly as they are many times in a small town. He was a member of the Donley County Senior Citizens and a charter member of the Community Fellowship Church. Bill enjoyed reading books, serving others by volunteering, and watching God’s beautiful sunset. Peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank. He was a humble and gentle man with a great sense of humor. Bill had that special deep down kind of love.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Charles Hodges and Sam Hodges; one sister, Kathryn Griffin; and one great-grandson, Dylon Miller.

Survivors include his wife Judy; two daughters, Reba Zollars and Teresa Hodges; one sister, Evalynn Lefler; four grandchildren, Mike Sells, Travis Stroope, Bobbie Jo Muffley, and Candance Smith; and 11 great-grandchildren

Thank you and many blessings to all of the individuals who cared for him. The family requests that memorials be sent to a favorite charity of your choosing.
