Calvin Rodney Hood, Sr. affectionately known as "Ronnie" was born on January 31, 1959 to the late Brady and Fleecie Mae Hood in Hickory Plains, Arkansas. He professed a hope in Christ at an early age at Pleasant Ridge Missionary Baptist Church in Hickory Plains, and later baptized into Christ at McAlmont Church of Christ in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
On December 23, 1978, Calvin married the love of his life, Sophia, and to this union four children were born. He was a very dedicated and hard worker. He was an over the road tractor trailer driver for over 25 years and a diesel mechanic. whatever was broken he could fix it; cars, bikes, lawn mowers, etc. When asked, "What is your occupation?", he would answer, "I'm in transportation". I would ask him why he answers with "I'm in transportation", he just gave me that Hood look.
