Tommy Wayne Hodges was born October 28, 1956 in Tulsa, OK to Tommy Cunningham Hodges and Mavis Minerva Jenkins and he passed from this life on January 4, 2022 at the age of 65.
Tommy died peacefully in his sleep after a battle with Multiple System Atrophy Tuesday morning, January 4. Despite not being a musician himself, Tommy was a music lover and connoisseur. He was an expert in Blues and Rock n’ Roll. It was commonplace to find Tommy dancing and having a nice IPA while enjoying the music he was so very passionate about. Daily, you could find him working a crossword puzzle and reading the printed paper. Tommy, a prolific reader, would check out books from the public library alongside his Mother. They found great joy in reading the same book simultaneously and then discussing what they had read.
Tommy was also an avid sports fan. Fall Saturdays and Sundays were spent cheering on his favorite team, the Oklahoma Sooners, and watching NFL games. Most importantly to Tommy was his strong faith and passion about studying the Bible. His love and belief in God was obvious to anyone who knew or spoke with him. Always up for being social, Tommy loved laughing and giving his friends and family a hard time. He made friends with every bartender and server he ever met, and when he loved someone, he loved them hard!
He will be missed.
Tommy is survived by his wife, Melanie (Roberts) Hodges; his children, Jessica and husband Christopher Hunt, Gabriel Hodges, Kristine Harbison, and Alexander Roberts; his sisters and their spouses, Vickie & Wayne Wilson and Patti (Hodges) & Charley Taylor; and his grandchildren, Braden, Gabriel, Sullivan, Sawyer and Jessie.
