Roy Lee Hodges, 93 of Burlington, Arkansas, passed away Saturday, July 17th at Forsyth Health and Rehab in Forsyth, Missouri. He was born November 29, 1927, in Burlington, Arkansas to Ralph & Ola Richesin Hodges.

Roy was a lifelong member of Burlington Baptist Church and as a young boy helped with the construction of the church by carrying fieldstone from the family farm.

Roy will be remembered by his family as a loving father, grandfather, and a man of faith who read his bible every day. He is preceded in death by his wife, Wilma Hodges, his parents, and his brother Eugene Hodges.

Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 PM, Thursday, July 22, 2021, at Burlington Baptist Church.
