Wallace Hodges "Hodge" Mann III

April 24, 1947 ~ November 29, 2023 (age 76) 76 Years Old


Wallace Hodges "Hodge" Mann III, 76, of Spotsylvania passed away on Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at Cardinal Village.

Hodge served in the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. He obtained his Bachelor's Degree from Florida State University and his Master's Degree from Virginia Tech. He was a local business owner, opening numerous businesses in the area, including the Hat Barn with his wife and son for 23 years.

Hodge married the girl next door after helping to unlock her from the bathroom. He loved nothing more than watching his son, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren play sports. Hodgie was quite the athlete himself, having been an all-district quarterback, point guard, and a record-setting high jumper for James Monroe High School and a basketball player at Hargrave Military Academy. He spent much of his time in the mountains, hiking, fishing, hunting, cheering on the Noles and Hokies, and loving on his family whom he adored beyond measure.

Survivors include his wife of 55 years, Cynthia Mann; his son, Justin and his wife, Paulette; three grandchildren, Chelsea Payne (Travis), Makenna (Jarred), and Andrew; and two great-grandchildren, Grayson and Tatum Payne. He was preceded in death by his father, Wallace Hodges Mann, Jr.; his mother, Grace Baker Mann; and his sister, Dorothy Morris.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. A service will be held at 9 a.m. on Thursday, December 7, 2023 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. Interment will follow in Quantico National Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Andrew Mann, John Morris, Travis Payne, Jarred Thompson, Erik Martin, and Alex Martin.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mary Washington Hospice in his name.
