Brother Ben Hodges went to meet his Lord and Savior on Monday, July 9, 2018 at home with his family by his side. He was rejoicing God up to his last day. Brother Ben’s biggest passion in life was to win souls for Jesus. He was extremely active with his church, Fellowship Baptist Church. He was active with the youth and it gave him such joy to teach and lead the young to Christ. He drove the church bus as well as worked on maintenance for the church. One of the first questions he ask when he met someone was “Do you know Jesus?”
He was predeceased by his parents, Saint Lewis and Maudie Hodges and a brother, Eddie Hodges.
He leaves behind his loving and caring wife of 41 years, Janet Hodges; brothers, Roger Hodges (Phyllis), Michael Hodges (Carol), and Freddie Hodges; sister, Betty Elting (Harold); brothers-in-law, Henry Grady (Sharon), and James Grady (Belinda); sister-in-law, Vicky Bradley (Jimmy); son, Lee Hodges (Crystal); granddaughter, Megan Hodges; great-granddaughter, Cassie Hodges, and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of his life will take place at 2:00 PM on Thursday, July 12, 2018 at the Lotz Funeral Home Chapel in Vinton with Pastor Mark Manning officiating. Interment will follow in Mountain View Cemetery. The family will receive friends on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 from 6-8 PM at the funeral home.
