Jody was born in Abilene, Texas on March 19, 1948 to Oran and Opal Hawkins. He was a U.S. Army Veteran and proudly served his country in Vietnam. Jody worked for the U.S. Postal Service until his retirement. He was a lifetime member of Martin Denson VFW Post 6873 in Abilene, TX. There was no such thing as him ever meeting a stranger. Since his retirement he enjoyed reading and relaxing with a good television show. He immersed himself in the joy of loving and spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Preceding him in death were his parents; and one sister, Glenda Hawkins.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of forty two years, Mary Ann Hawkins; daughter, Jodi Ann Kelley and husband, Howard of Tye, TX; a brother, Roy Hawkins and wife, Cookie; grandchildren, Shilo Kelley and fiancé, Dusty Hall, Tiffany Pettijohn and husband, Stetson, and Wesley Kelley; great-grandchildren, Bailey and Logan Pettijohn.
