Stephen Ray Hodges, beloved husband, dad, grandpa and friend, passed away at 6:59 am on the 23rd of April. He was 65 years old.
Steve was born on December 17, 1953 as the only child of Joanna (Fiscus) Hodges and Raymond Hodges. He joins his parents in Heaven.
He was raised in the small town of Ogden, Illinois. He always appreciated the small town life. He attended grade school in Ogden and high school in St. Joe, where he lettered in football and baseball.
He loved playing sports when he was young. As he grew older he bowled in leagues and enjoyed watching Illini basketball, WWE wrestling and football.
He was a quiet man but always had a quick smile and friendly nod when he greeted everyone.
He worked hard all of his life. He believed in a good day’s work. His longest career was at Super Valu where he was a driver, jockey and routing supervisor. He was always on time and very dependable. He was everyone’s friend.
He was especially proud of his children. He is survived by his former wife Randa Hodges. Together they raised 3 beautiful daughters. Madeline (Trent) Gill, appreciated his ability to enjoy the simple things in life. Katie (Jon) Bowman enjoyed concerts with him. Leslie always kept their little secret that he allowed her to eat junk food.
Later in his life he met Sherry Lawless and together they raised her daughter Tabytha. Sherry and Steve were married in 2012. They treasured each other’s strengths and truly loved one another unconditionally. Tabytha respected and loved her dad like no other person in her life.
Memorial services will be at 4 p.m. May 3 at Lutheran Church of Mahomet, 410 Andover Drive, Mahomet.
It is 5 o’clock somewhere and there’s always a Cubs game on where you are now, Steve. Rest peacefully and know you are forever loved.
