Anyone who knew Clifford knew he had many “loves” in his life. Western movies, rodeos, bull riding and walking were among his favorites. He had participated as a runner in the Special Olympics and always enjoyed watching Gunsmoke on TV. His passion for the western life was evident in his hats, boots, jeans and cowboy shirts. His greatest love in life, however, was his precious mother. She was always at his side to care for and guide him throughout his life.

In addition to his mother, Dorothy, he is survived by his step-father: Morris Ray Dugger of Summertown; a sister: Gina (Scott) Peterson of Columbia; two nephews: Andrew and Aaron Peterson; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. He is also survived by his step-sisters: Nancy (Don) Terry of Santa Fe and Sherry (Guy) Hall of Columbia; and a step-brother: Danny Dugger of Columbia.

He was preceded in death by his father: Clinton Hodge. Pallbearers will be his cousins: Nicky Hodge, Mark Hodge, Barry Hodge, Jimmy Martin, Kenny McMullin, Bryan Horn, and others, as well as his brother-in-law: Scott Peterson.
