Bob Hodges was a fine man. I had an interest in soils and the soil survey work Bob was doing and he would let me follow him around and he’d patiently show me different soil types and answer every question until I ran out of questions. He would hold Bible readings in his office at lunch and would go to Africa to help folks use soils wisely for crop production and to dig wells for water. He loved his wife and children and was a kind, gentle soul. I hadn’t seen Bob in over 20 years but I’ll always have fond memories as a young man learning from him what’s important in life.

Years ago, Bob helped teach us geology undergrads a thing or two about the first few inches of the earth's crust. These lessons helped me both in my studies and early career. I remain grateful for his generosity and patience.
