Kermit is survived by his wife of 60 years, Thelma Hodge; his two sisters, Freda Hudnall and Shirley Bailey; brother, Larry Hodge; four sons Michael (wife Judy), Eric (wife Jan), Jay (wife Miquelont) and Jason (wife Teresa); and daughter, Debi Hodge-Betsill (husband Danny); seven grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.

There will be a service at Mt. Hermon United Methodist Church in Renick on Saturday, Jan. 28. The family will receive guests from 11 a.m.  to 1 p.m., immediately followed by a celebration of life.
