Plummer Hodges, age 86 of Nashville, TN, passed away June 6, 2014 to be with his Savior Jesus Christ after a short illness with Myelodysplastic Syndrome.
Plummer was born in Cumberland Furnace, Montgomery County, TN, on October 17, 1927, son of the late Plummer Hodges, Sr. and Etha Harper Hodges. He was a member of Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Cumberland Furnace until 1975 when he joined the staff at the Lord's Chapel in Nashville. He was the founding pastor of Trinity Fellowship, a Bible Teacher in prisons for twenty-seven years, missionary, prayer warrior, and a faithful soul winner. Plummer was a patriot who volunteered at the age of 19 to serve in the U.S. Army Air force as a B-29 remote control gun turret operator. It was in the Army that he was nicknamed "Preacher."
He spent forty-two years with his first wife, Lois Bulle, who predeceased him.
Plummer is survived by his wife of the last twenty-three years, Dorothy Jordan Kay Hodges; children, Mike Hodges, Pat (Susan) Hodges, Pam (Steve) Vague; step-children, Jim (Elaine) Kay, Jon (Nancy) Kay, Carole Anne Orsborn; brother, Dr. Dewey (Margaret) Hodges of Atlanta; sister, Dorothy (Jim) Nolen of Louisville. Also surviving are his blended family of forty-five members, including 31 grand and great-grandchildren, who highlighted his later years with much joy.
Thanks to NSW, neighbors, nieces, nephews, Gentiva Hospice, Dr. Robert S. Quinn, M.D., and special friends who prayed and stayed close as he was on this journey to Heaven. Beloved, we will miss you terribly and never forget you. Your wife and family.
