Edward "Boo" Ferrell Hodges III, 51, of Fairmont, died Saturday, July 26, 2014, surrounded by his family. He was born Nov. 5, 1962, the son of Ed Jr. and Donna Hodges. He was president of Ed F. Hodges Inc. of Fairmont and was a member of Baltimore Baptist Church. Boo was known for his smile and love of his family and friends. He never met a stranger and was an inspiration to all. His faith never wavered in his courageous battle against cancer. He won the fight because he is now in heaven. Well done, our good and faithful servant. Some of his happiest times were spent hunting, fishing and being at the beach.
