He enjoyed the little things in life and loved to travel, camp, spend time with friends, and cheer on his Oklahoma Sooners. He was preceded in death by his parents, Regina Brooks Hodges and Wesley Hodges.  He is survived by his wife, Elaine; stepson, Larry Harkins of Florida; beloved granddaughter Kailey Harkins of Montana; brother and sister-in-law: Pat and Connie Hodges of Tipp City, brother and sister-in-law: Mike and Lana Hodges of Riverside, CA; nephews, nieces, cousins, and many loving friends. A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.   The family would like to thank Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton for the compassionate care rendered by the entire staff. In lieu of flowers, if desired, please make a memorial contribution to Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton, 324 Wilmington Ave, Dayton, OH 45420 or OSUCCC – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, 460 W. 10th Ave., Columbus, OH 43210.

My husband and have known Wes for several years. Always the first to select a restaurant to go to and announce whatever he ordered was the best he ever ate. It never mattered the dish. Always a great friend and partner in crime where he and Doug were concerned. I always enjoyed our weekends at the pool with our grandchildren and all the cookouts we had. Good times and memories. We're going to miss him.

Wes, you were my brother and partner-in-crime for so many of our young years growing up in Anadarko. I will forever hold those memories close to my heart. I know there was a huge reunion and a big crowd to welcome you home. You will be missed here, by so many and our prayers for comfort are with your beautiful Elaine.
