John Hodgson belonged to of the First Presbyterian Church of Glassport, to a Masonic lodge (Youghiogheny lodge No. 583 F. & A. M., Pittsburgh Consistory), and to the Knights of Malta. His parents, Edward and Matilda Louise (Fritz) Hodgson, survived him, as did siblings Elmer of Belle Vernon and Dorothy of Scenery Hill. The funeral took place at Central Presbyterian Church in McKeesport.
