ARTHUR HODGE
January 5, 1901 November 20, 1990
Arthur Hodge, affectionately known as the Tinsmith or
Candy Man, was born on January 5, 1901, on the island of
St. Thomas. At a very young age, he moved to Tortola where
he was raised by an aunt. He advanced himself by learning
the trade of tinsmith, becoming one of the best, and was
very much in demand as such.
In 1934, he married the late Sarah Lucinda Leonard and
through that union fathered three children. He was a loving,
caring and devoted father.
Arthur is survived by his loving and devoted daughter,
Doris Hodge; his son, Hans Hodge; 11 grandchildren; 11
great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
On November 20, 1990, Arthur departed this earthly
life, leaving a lasting memory of love, family commitment,
hard work and perseverance.
MAY HE REST IN PEACE.
