Kenneth C. Hodgman (1923-2011)

I'm not great with sentimental words or expressing my emotions, but here goes.
My sweet father in law passed into his next estate this morning and I wanted to pay a short tribute to him and his life.

He was a humble man of humble means and leaves behind a wife who adored him and 2 children that revered him and what he stood for. His son, My Hubby, in talking about him yesterday said, "He was a man of high integrity and honesty, and he didn't back down on his principles no matter what."

His little nervous laugh was always with him in conversation, even when the Alzheimer's had taken his train of thought away. It was just such a cute habit coming from a naturally happy man, that he never let it or his pleasant demeanor go.

We will all miss his kind heart and ready smile and look forward to seeing him whole again.

Love Ya Grandpa Hodgman


  1. I think these words were just perfect.

    We're so sorry to hear about Grandpa Hodgman. He looks like a wonderful person, and we know from personal experience how hard it is to lose a dad.

    You and your family will be in our prayers.



  2. I'm sorry to hear of your loss but glad that you know any personal suffering for him is over and that you will be reunited perfectly when the time comes. It was nice to hear a little about him. You're all in my thoughts and prayers.
