Matthew Brandon Hodges, 28, passed away August 11, 2019. He was born May 26, 1991 in Jacksonville, FL. Matthew graduated from Nease High School in 2009 where he was a member of ROTC. Matthew was a faithful friend and incredible son and brother. Matthew always had a smile on his face and was quick to give you a hug and a laugh whenever you needed it. His spirit and love for life will truly be missed but he is now at peace in heaven with his brothers. Psalms 23: 4-6 states “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Matthew is survived by his parents Kevin and Laurie Hodges; maternal grandparents Terry and Sharon Fowler; paternal grandmother Alice Hodges. He is preceded in death by his brothers Michael Zachary Hodges and Hunter Jay Hodges; grandfather Elmer Jason Hodges; great grandmothers Dorothy Jefferies and Madeline Fowler.
A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Monday, August 19, 2019 at Ponte Vedra Presbyterian Church. Burial will follow at Ponte Vedra Valley.
