John William Hodges

John William Hodges passed away suddenly on April 11, 2018, at the age of 51, in Ucon Idaho. He was doing what he loved, driving semi-truck.  He was born to Herbert James Hodges and Betty K Hillyard in Salt Lake City, Utah and grew up in West Bountiful.  He was loved by so many and had four brothers and one sister.  He left behind two beautiful daughters, his wife Audra who had three daughters that he raised as his own and nine grandchildren.  John enjoyed driving semi-trucks, barbecues, karaoke, camping and spending time with family and friends.  He was a true cowboy who enjoyed watching NASCAR and drinking beer.  His favorite football team was the Dallas Cowboys.  He will be deeply missed but we are comforted in knowing he is now reunited with his mom and dad.  “Your shift is over now, you can rest driver”.  We love you John.

Steve and Audra, John was a great man and such a pleasure to work with. No matter what was asked, even if it was an E-Log being a thorn in his side, he complied and never gave up. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with John. He will be greatly missed, and forever remembered. My heart goes out to all of you. Roll on trucker John. R.I.P. Cherissa Cox.

Our sweet Mandy and Debra, Uncle Shaun and I are so sadden to hear about the sudden loss of your Daddy. We hope you find some peace in these hard times. I know your father is telling your bonus father how beautiful and proud he is about the two of you, and what amazing mothers you both are and how beautiful your babies are. I have a feeling Cory has known all along. They are up there catching up and looking out over you both and your families with such pride. We love you both so much. ~Love always, Uncle Shaun and Aunt Shannon
