Matthew (Matt) Hoddy

Matthew (Matt) Hoddy was born Feb. 3, 1949, in Mt. Clemens Michigan. He passed away in his Arizona home in the company of family on the morning of June 10th, 2019, following a battle with Esophageal Cancer. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Lois Hoddy. He graduated from Owosso High School in 1967 and attended Michigan Tech and Central Michigan University. He is survived by his wife, Patricia (Patti) Hoddy, and his daughters Melanie Hoddy (Andrew Cartwright), Kristin (Bean) Hoddy (Justin Williams), and 2nd Lt Danielle (Shorty) Hoddy (Capt. William Lyles); his brothers John Hoddy and Pete Hoddy; and sisters Elizabeth (Liz) Hoddy Clarke, Rebekah (Becky) Hoddy Smith and Melissa (Missy) Hoddy; his grandchildren Hannah Rawles, Isaac Williams, and Archer Williams. He also leaves behind several nieces and nephews including Hey You, Crash, Trouble, Blondie, Radiator, Chip, Froggy, and more. Matt held a deep appreciation for the world around him, be it friends, family and God’s small creatures. The beauty and uniqueness of Michigan’s clear waters and lush woodlands to the vast wonders of the mountains and canyons of the West, Matt loved it all. A simple Memorial in Matt’s honor will be held on August 10th, between 3 to 5 p.m. in pavilion C at Henderson Park, east off N. M-52. This is a casual gathering for family and friends to share stories and memories of Matt.
