Carl Dee Hodnett, 90 of Dudley passed away on Tuesday at his residence surrounded by family. Born in Dryprong, LA, he is the son of the late William Drew and Jennie Collins Hodnett and is the husband of Hilda Hodnett. Carl was a Senior Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force having served for 26 years. While in the Air Force he learned multiple trades including carpentry, air conditioning, and fabrication to name a few. There was nothing he couldn’t do. He taught his grandkids to build with the skills he learned in his time in the service. He was very detail-oriented and organized with his tools. You didn’t borrow or move something he didn’t know about. He was a family man who loved spending time with his kids and grandkids, teaching them life skills. He even taught all the grandkids and great-grandkids how to swim.
A funeral service will be held on Friday at 11:00 A.M. in the chapel of Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home with Rev. Patrick Muston and Rev. David Moehring officiating.
