Clarence Don Hodges

May 16, 1938 — October 3, 2022

Clarence Don Hodges, 84, was called home on October 3, 2022 at home surrounded by his family. Clarence was born on May 16, 1938 to George Dillard and Arlon Fain Hodges. He was born and raised in Stewart, VA, where he met his sweetheart, the love of his life, Margaret Cox Hodges.

Clarence and Margaret moved to Randleman where he was a heavy equipment mechanic for over 32 years at Arrow Equipment, where he retired. He also, for a while, served as a volunteer fire fighter at the Level Cross Fire Department. He enjoyed fishing, mechanics, tinkering in his garage, and wearing overalls. In the opinion of his loving family, he was the shining example of what a man should be. He taught them a good work ethic, honesty, loyalty, showed them how to love, and most importantly, not a day went by that he didn’t share his love for God to everyone. His life’s joy was his family and sharing his love for Jesus at Level Cross Baptist Church where he was a member for more than 50 years. He was preceded in death by his parents, and 9 siblings.

Clarence was survived by his sweetheart, wife of over 65 years, Margaret Marie Cox Hodges, his daughter, Peggy Sue Listenberger (Ron), Clarence “Don” Hodges Jr. (Judy), daughter-in love, Jannette Cockram Hall, granddaughters, Christy Redden (David), Sherrie Hodges (Jason), Stephanie Hodges (Steve), grandsons, John Coffer (Darlene), Christopher “Chris” McClain, 15 blessed great grandchildren, and 1 very special great-great granddaughter, and sister Opal Williams. His enthusiastic love for each of them will always be remembered, and never forgotten.

The family will receive friends from 1:30-2:00 pm at Level Cross Baptist Church, 10167 US-220 BUS, Randleman, NC 27317 on October 6, 2022. The celebration of his life will be held at Level Cross Baptist Church at 2:00 pm. The burial will follow at Randolph Memorial Park, 4538 N Fayetteville St, Asheboro, NC 27203.
