Lloyd Hodges, 90, passed away on Monday, March 11, 2019, at Taylor House.

He retired from Firestone after 32 years. He loved watching and playing golf, shooting 7 “holes in one.” Lloyd’s nephew, Marty Howard, took him to the Masters Tournament in Augusta, GA. A dream come true.

He enjoyed college wrestling and watching the wrestlers at Grandview College during practice. Lloyd also enjoyed watching races at Knoxville Raceway and a hot cup of coffee at Hy-Vee. He remained active by tending to his flower garden, golfing, and mowing, all of which he was doing last summer.

Lloyd is survived by his wife of 71 years, Harriett; daughters, Vicki (Dan) Cornelius, Teri Rice, Dixie Crouch, and Colleen (Frank) Reyno; 4 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, and 1 great great-granddaughter; his brother, Ron (Sherryl) Hodges of Madrid, and his sister, Jeanne Mabe of Houston, TX. Lloyd had 3 other girls he loved as daughters, Debbie Hutchinson, Judy Sprague, and Adalaide Gurwell.

Lloyd was a member of Marquisville United Methodist Church.

No services are planned at this time. Memorials can be sent to the family in loving memory of Lloyd.
