May 13, 1947 — Jan. 29, 2011
Robert R. Hodges, 63, passed away on Jan. 29, 2011, while on a dirt bike riding trip with two of his sons and a friend, doing what he loved to do. He is survived by his loving wife, Diana; three sons, Michael, Mark and Tom and their wives; and seven grandchildren. He is also survived by his mother, Charlotte; brother, Randy; and sister, Janice. His father, Clarence, preceded him in death.
Bob was an avid motorcycle and bicycle enthusiast and loved exploring the outdoors. He was a wonderful son, brother, father and husband. He felt passionately about the Blue Ribbon Coalition and Friends of the El Dorado Trail. Born in Burlingame, Calif., he spent most of his life in San Jose, where he retired as a City of San Jose electrician. He retired to his dream home with his wife in the Sierra Foothills in 2008. He was respected by all and he will be greatly missed.
Bob was a man of honor, though down to earth, and he made those around him feel like old friends. He was a warm, kind and gentle man who could build or fix almost anything.
A memorial will be held at Oak Hill Funeral and Memorial Park in San Jose on Feb. 11 at 2 p.m. If you would like to share thoughts or memories of Bob, you can do so at oakhillfuneral.com/dm20/en_US/locations/24/2473/index.page.
