Obituary for Bobby Joe Hood

Bobby Joe Hood, 82, of Belzoni, passed away peacefully, holding his wife's hand, at South Sunflower Hospital in Indainola, Mississippi.

Bobby was born on August 2, 1938 to his parents John and Lucille Hood. He lived his entire life on Gooden Lake Road where he was a faithful member of the Gooden Lake Baptist Church. He told his wife that he was ready to go meet his Heavenly Father. Though he was a quiet man, he had no problem inviting people to church. Bobby worked hard to support his family. It was said by some that he could work circles around those younger than himself. He was a kind, loving, Christian man who had many friends who will miss him.

Bobby Hood leaves behind his wife of 57 years, Lille Mae, daughter Jennifer Smith of Isola, sons, Michael Hood (Carole) of Fort Worth, Texas, and Kenneth Hood of Grenada, brothers, Pete Hood of Madison, Jim Hood also of Madison, sister, Mary McClintock of Terry, as well as his joy of life grandchildren Hannah, Layne and Nathan. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Lucille Hood, and a sister, Sherry Sugg.

Visitation will be held Friday, October 23, 2020, at Gooden Lake Church at 10 AM following by graveside service at Gooden Lake Cemetery at 11 AM.

The family requests in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to Gooden Lake Church, 4432 Gooden Lake Road, Belzoni, Mississippi 39038.
