Until We Meet Again W.C.

Mr. C’s father passed away on July 1st.

W.C.Hodge

He was a wonderful man.

A proud Marine that served in World War II. He was in the 1st Marine Division which was the VERY FIRST group of Marines to storm a beach in W.W.II in the South Pacific! He was promoted from Private to Corporal after the battle of Bloody Nose Ridge on Guadalcanal. With only a 10th grade education he was later promoted a number of times to obtain the rank of 1st Lieutenant.

He was a carpenter by trade and was always willing to lend his skills where needed.

He never met a stranger.

He loved his family and was a great father, husband, grandfather, brother, uncle, and father-in-law.

He enjoyed a good game of Euchre and wasn’t above a little bit of good natured cheatin once in awhile.

He loved to wet a line and drown worms.

He always had a twinkle (and a little bit of mischief) in his eye.

He loved to eat… boy did he ever! And when he took the first bite he would always raise his hand and say…

delish

                      “DELICIOUS!”

You were well loved W.C. and we will miss you… until we meet again.

    I never met the man, but have heard such wonderful things about him through the years. I think Cam must have inherited the best of him. Sorry for your loss but life is good on the other side.
