Sergeant Jeremy Michael Hodge, 20, of Rushsylvania was tragically killed in the line of duty on Monday, October 10, 2005, while proudly serving his country in Baghdad, Iraq. A National Guard soldier of Bravo Company, 612th Engineering Battalion, Jeremy was an unselfish, hardworking leader who exemplified honor and duty. He was a 2003 graduate of Ridgemont High School where he was a member of the football and baseball teams and an active participant in swing choir and musicals. He will be remembered as an All-American boy who loved four-wheeling, motorcycles, hunting and fishing, watching NASCAR, and rooting for Mark Martin. He dearly loved his family and made his parents, family, and the community very proud. He was born July 7, 1985, at Yokota Air Base, Japan. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Don Schoenherr and Earl and Mary Lou Hodge. Survivors include his parents, Mike Hodge of Rushsylvania, and Michele (Steve) Norris of Fredericksburg, Va.; his adoring sisters, Alyssa, 18, Nicole, 15, and Denise, 12; grandparents, Dr. Charles and Sherry Arnett of Bellefontaine, and Ruth Bassett of Fort Wayne, Ind.; great-grandmother, Dorothy Wiegman, Fort Wayne, Ind.; many aunts and uncles; numerous cousins; and countless friends and admirers. Services will be held Wednesday, October 19, 2005, at 1 p.m. at the Rushsylvania Church of Christ, 170 Mill St. and Co. Rd 50, Rushsylvania. Reverend Tim Sherer will officiate, and burial with full military honors conducted by the 612th Engineer Battalion will take place at Rushsylvania Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 1-8 p.m. on Tuesday at the church. Friends, neighbors, and the public not attending the funeral service are encouraged to pay their respects by lining the funeral procession route in Rushsylvania on Wednesday. In lieu of flowers, the family strongly encourages memorial contributions to be made to the Ridgemont High School Vocal Music Department, PO Box 87, Ridgeway, OH 43345, or to the Victory Junction Gang, a NASCAR camp for seriously and terminally ill children, 4500 Adam's Way, Randleman, NC 27317.
