    Darwin Hodge will be missed by everyone who had the privilege of meeting him. Dennis would always speak of his dad respectfully about Darwin being a welder at Texaco, Deacon at the Church of Christ, snow skiing vacations, and working on cars in his garage. I’m sure there are many more people who would agree. As a contract welder had the opportunity to work a shutdown with Darwin. He was a positive inspiration to my welding career. He not only talked about the HOLY BIBLE, he lived it and showed it by example.

    Miss Jessie, my heart broke when Wesley told me about Darwin. I wish I lived closer so I could come be with you , Larry, Dennis, Stanton and Barbara. We have lost too many loved ones in the last two years, but know that they are in a better place. Don’t you know that he and Daddy have already started talking about the spring garden. Love to you and know that I am thinking about you and your family. I remember the picture that is posted and is how I will always remember him. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
    Love you, Chris
