Kyle C. Hodgkins

December 21, 1971February 26, 2021

Kyle C. Hodgkins, age 49 of Smithfield, RI died unexpectedly at home, Friday, February 26, 2021.

Born December 21, 1971 to parents Charles Willett and Pamela Edith (Thornton) Hodgkins. He was a 1990 graduate of Smithfield High School with many lifelong friendships.

Kyle was employed with Verizon for 25 yrs. where he worked as a splice technician and more recently a central office technician. Kyle was also a member of IBEW 2323 and Verizons QRF Quick Response Force. Throughout his career, Kyle formed many long and meaningful friendships with his coworkers.

In 2002, Kyle met Peggy Green after a blind date arranged by a mutual friend. The two became inseparable and married June 2004. The couple welcomed their daughter Kileigh in 2005. Kyle was her biggest fan and she was his pride and joy.

Kyle could light up a room with his infectious smile and wonderful sense of humor. His greatest love was spending time with his family. When he wasn’t on the softball field with Kileigh, he enjoyed a great game of poker, countless hours of cornhole, a highly competitive family game night or just sitting in the hot tub singing oldies with his family. He hated to miss Wheel of Fortune and challenged Peggy to solve the puzzles nightly. A devoted sports fan, he loved spending his weekends watching football, baseball and hockey but especially his beloved Raiders and OSU Buckeyes.

He was a talented artist, and enjoyed drawing, painting and wood burning gifts for friends and family.

Kyle is survived by his daughter Kileigh; his wife Peggy; his “children by choice” John, James, Crystal and her fiancee’ Johnny and her daughter Reagan who affectionately referred to him as G-Hodge; his mother Pamela; his father Charles; his sister Kimberly Lees and her husband Dean; nieces Sydney and Samantha.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend visitation on Saturday from 9-10 AM in St. Anthony Church, 1413 Mineral Spring Avenue, North Providence, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 AM.

You have left such a hole in my heart and I will never understand why this had to happen. I will always remember your sweet smile, your willingness to help others and your kind heart - from when we were little until now. I wish I could have taken your pain away. Keep a watchful eye on all of us as we try to move on because right now, it’s hard for us to even breathe. I’ll be looking for signs everywhere. Rest in eternal peace, my “Irish Twin”. Until we meet again....

Kyle - I am having so much difficulty processing your passing, especially the manner. After you sought my counsel, I thought all would be well. Please look down to help and guide me. I will reach out to Kileigh as you would expect me to do as your godfather. Hopefully now you are at peace.

Your godfather and godmother,
Uncle Al & Aunt Cheryl
