A young father of one son, John Hodgson was a popular pharmacist in McKeesport. He came from an old McKeesport family that had made the transition from coal miners to mill workers and managers. The extended family included medical doctors and teachers.

John Hodgson also served as a pharmacist in the Pennsylvania National Guard, attending regular training camps.

Tragically, John Hodgson died of complications from a streptococcal infection. "John Hodgson, 29, widely-known druggist of Glassport, died yesterday morning at 1 o'clock at his home, 328 Ohio avenue, Glassport, following a week's illness." (McKeesport Daily News, February 25, 1935, p. 21)

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.
