Jodie Lee Conyers

On April 25, 2019, Jodie Conyers joined his parents and siblings in heaven, passing away peacefully in his sleep at home in Yantis, Texas. He leaves this life as a loving husband, a caring father, a doting grandfather, a silly uncle, and a loyal friend to many. The impact he made on those close to him was vast and expansive, and he will forever be remembered as a man of family, faith, friendship, and patriotism. He was especially proud of his service in the U.S. Navy and recently celebrated his 64th birthday.

Born in Lubbock, TX, Jodie spent most of his adult years in Fort Worth, where he and his loving wife of 35 wonderful years, Sharon, enjoyed a full life together raising their four boys – Chris, Jay, J.C., and Cary. He was a long-time employee of the City of White Settlement and coached myriad youth football and baseball teams. He will forever be remembered for his decade-long run coaching the Senior League Dodgers, with all four of his boys playing on the baseball team. Through the years he coached and mentored countless young men, many of whom kept in touch with him and considered him a friend up until his recent passing.

Upon retiring in July of 2012 (on his lucky Friday the 13th, as he so referred to the day!), Jodie and Sharon embarked on a new journey and settled on Yantis, TX for their final, joyous chapter together. They spent their retirement days relaxing and fishing with friends and family on Lake Fork, where Jodie taught his many grandkids how to conquer the biggest bass, crappie, and catfish the lake had to offer. As he liked to say about retirement, his new mission was fishin’.

He is survived by his loving wife, Sharon; Chris and Yvonne and their children Christopher, Zackery, Dal, Kurstin, and Zakary; Jay and Jenny and their children Isaac, Josie, and Henry; J.C. and his children Riley and Joni; Cary and his children Wyatt and Colter; great grandchildren Brooklyn, Braylen, Braxton, Shylin, and Zayden; canine companions Lil’ Bit, Gracie, and Charlie; and countless nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins, in-laws, and other relatives. He joins his mother Jocie, father George, sister Sue, brother Buddy, and grandson Jacob in heaven. He left an enduring, heartfelt impact on those he loved and will be missed by his friends and family and the communities he called home. Even the fish in Lake Fork will miss him.

Jodie and Sharon are members of the Lake Fork Baptist Church, where a memorial service will be held on May 18th at 11:00 am. All are welcome to attend.
