Larry Jay Hodges, 73, of Garden City, died Tuesday, March 19, 2013, at the home of his daughter in Henefer, Utah. He was born August 13, 1939, in Logan, Utah, the son of Jay P. and Margaret Fuller Hodges. He married Lana Pollock on March 18, 1960, in Elko, Nev.
Larry grew up in Pickleville, Utah, and attended North Rich High School. He served in the U.S. Navy and retired from Hill Air Force Base in 1993. Larry was a member of the American Legion and Rich County Search and Rescue.
