FORT WORTH-Ed Hodges passed away Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at the age of 56.
CELEBRATION OF LIFE: Private
Ed was born June 14, 1964 to the late Melvin L. and Doris C. Hodges in Phoenix, Arizona. He proudly served his country for 13 years by enlisting in the US Army. Ed was a beloved husband, soulmate, and best friend to his wife, Ed and Marion were gifted with 24 precious years together. Ed’s selflessness and loyalty, generosity and loving heart were unmatched. He was always ready to lend a hand, no sacrifice was too dear. Family first, Ed did not need blood relationship to be father, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle or friend.
Ed was first to shed a tear, first to laugh from the heart, first to lend a hand, a stellar haiku writer, lover of dogs (and a few cats), astronomy and physics aficionado, a skilled marksman, a voracious reader, expert with technology, teller of tales, and a great cook.
Road trips with his wife were frequent and impulsive activities, but their favorite spot in the world to travel to was Hawaii. For their 20th anniversary, they renewed their vows, sealed them in a bottle and cast them into the ocean along Maui’s northwest coast. And Ed wrote this haiku:
Across the ocean
A vessel with a token
Our vows forever
Though he has traveled to the other side, he is with us always and will be deeply and profoundly missed.
Ed is preceded in death by his parents; dear sister, Kay Cruz; and brother-in-law, David Cruz.
