Robert “Wayne” Hodges, 83 of Alvarado and most recently of Amarillo Texas, passed away on October
5, 2023, in the loving arms of his daughter from natural causes.
He was born to the late Ralph and Pearl Hodges, on May 22, 1940, in Denver Colorado. Wayne was a
salesman and loved to interact with the public. He was a route man for Clover Club Foods and Rainbow
bread. He then went on to sale the racks you see in all the stores to most of the companies in the
Western part of the United States. After retirement, if that is what you want to call it, Wayne worked as
a guard at the local jail and thought it quite fun to go out with the prisoners for a smoke. He then found
joy in delivering medications to homes for the Alvarado Drug Store. At the age of 72, he finally fully
retired. Wayne was hard working and was extremely proud of the jobs he had held and won a multitude
of awards in sales. He loved his life and his family and the only true happiness he felt was when he was
helping others. The number of family he has supported or raised is almost endless and he treasured
those times the most even though it could be trying and difficult. His other compassion in life was
smoking. He truly enjoyed it and had done so for 74 years. Therefore. You will see a pack of cigs in his
