J-Boy was born November 14, 1944 and passed away January 23, 2022. He loved his family first and most of all. J-Boy loved hunting, fishing and frogging, and past adventures with his brothers and nephews. Also he loved calling his list of names everyday and relishing in all our little stories and accomplishments whether they be big or little. He enjoyed the “3” little late blessings of joy that God sent our family. He knew our hearts needed them. He was preceded in death by parents James and Hazel Hodge; daughter Angela Hodge; siblings Betty Price, Virgie Spells; grandsons Chad Rice, and Tanner Adams; great-granddaughter Tristan Guerrero.

A host of friends and family who’s been by our side during this unexpectant time of loss.
