I am so sorry for your loss. I went to school with Troy from kindergarden up to high school. I will always have such fond memories of growing up with him and the fun we had as little kids. <br /> God bless you all!<br />

I've known Troy since I was about 14 years old and he would take myself and my friend cruising High St. in pottstown, pretending to be his little sisters and handing out his business cards with his # on them to all the pretty girls. I didn't always stay in touch but we always seemed to cross paths over the last 20 years. He always was pleasant and smiling. He was a great person (flaws and all) LOL!!! I know now since I have been saved by our Lord that God has him in his kingdom and he is smiling and enjoying eternity. GOD BLESS your family and especially his children.

I am sorry to hear about Troy's passing. I'll always remember his smile - I used to walk with him from the bus stop when we were little. It's been a long time since I saw him, but he was always nice and full of energy. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Jesse Hodges, 64, of Perkiomenville

Jesse “The Hodge” Hodges, 64, husband of Anne Louise (Decker) Hodges, of Perkiomenville, PA, formerly of Upper Moreland, passed away suddenly on Tuesday at his residence.

Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late Jesse J. and Elizabeth (Bridygham) Hodges.

Jesse served as an Infantry Officer in the US Army 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) out of Fort Bragg, NC and 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) in the Republic of South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. He was a professor at MCCC for 37 years, obtained Masters Degrees in Health in Physical Education & Recreation, Psychology, and History, received the Lindback Distinguished Teaching Award from MCCC in 2007 and was awarded Professor Emeritus in Psychology and History. Jesse was also a professional baseball player. He played on the New York Yankees farm system in Greensboro, NC.

Jesse sponsored the Kim family from Vietnam. Mr. Kim was a liaison for the US Army Special Forces Camp while Jesse served in Vietnam. Mr. Kim, his wife and two adult sons are now successfully settled in the United States. He will be sadly missed by many friends who thought of “The Hodge” as family.

Friends may call on Sunday, from 6PM to 7:30PM at Catagnus Funeral Home & Cremation Center, Inc., 1020 E. Phila. Ave., Gilbertsville. Services and interment are private and at the convenience of the family.

Anne- my thoughts and love go out to you at this horribly trying and difficult time. Know that you have many friends and "family" at Hereford who will be there for you.

Dick Greenwood

May-29 1:54pm

Anne, As much as I dislike throwing quotations in such times, the lines, "His life wss good; the elements so mixed in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, This was a man" keep echoing in my mind. I can still hear his greeting, "Hey, big guy" and will always carry his warmth and optimism with me. I am so sorry for your great loss.

Joe Eckhardt

May-29 2:05pm

Anne, I don't think I ever met you, but I knew Jesse for 37 years as a friend and colleague at MCCC. He had many admirable qualities, not the least of which were his loyalty and devotion to the things he believed in. My sympathies to you in this difficult time. Peace. Joe E.

Jim Ambrosius

May-29 3:16pm

Dear Anne, Sorry to hear of Jesse's passing today. Jesse was a friend and teammate of mine from our days with Fred Hoffman and Magnolia in the Pen-Del baseball league. He certainly had many accomplishments during his lifetime to be proud of. Please accept my condolences.<br /> Respectfully,<br /> Jim Ambrosius<br />

John Ann Lacy

May-29 3:31pm

We are sorry to have lost such a passionate and vibrant individual and an excellent teacher. His students were very fortunate to have such a caring and conscientious teacher and friend. We all benefited from his decency and thoughtfulness, his limitless patience, and his constant enthusiasm and optimism. Ann, we are so sorry for you loss. No one can doubt that Jesse left this world a better place.

Mary Lou Whitehill

May-29 5:55pm

Dear Anne, <br /> Jesse's life was so enriched when he met you...I know everyone at the College who loved Jesse is thinking of you now.<br /> I share Dick Greenwood's aversion to trite quotes. However a new bench was installed along the trail where I run. I'd never really noticed it until today. A beautiful Indigo Bunting was perched on it...a rare sighting. It drew my attention to a small plaque with the famous Emerson quote "TO LAUGH MUCH AND OFTEN. TO HAVE THE RESPECT OF INTELLIGENT PEOPLE... TO LEAVE THE WORLD A LITTLE BETTER. TO HAVE HELPED ONE PERSON BREATHE A LITTLE EASIER, THAT IS TO HAVE SUCCEEDED"<br /> A great guy and friend for decades...sadly missed by so many.<br /> <br />

Gail McVicker

May-30 12:36am

It saddens my heart to read the passing of Jesse Hodges. Words like kindness, compassion and competence fall short in describing his fine qualities. In his understated way he had that rare gift of bringing out the best in those whose lives he touched. His Vietnam History Course at MCCC was a tribute to something so misunderstood from one who knew.

The Reverend Dr Thomas G Snowden

May-30 8:48am

I was both grieved and saddened to learn of Jesses' passing. He was a treasured friend and colleague of more than 30 years during our tenure at Montgomery County Community College. The world has lost a very rare and special person. My prayers are with you, Anne, and family, in this time of bereavement. You have all my love and heartfelt sympathy.<br /> <br /> Thomas G. Snowden

John Hernan

Jesse was a friend, scholar, teacher, and athlete whose death leaves all of us with great sadness.

John and Rosemarie Monteleone

May-31 12:07pm

Ann and Family,<br /> <br /> Rosie and I are thinking about you and keeping you in our prayers. We hope you will have the strength to carry on despite this tragic loss. Jesse was a giant among men, figuratively and literally. We were blessed to have him as a friend and I never had a better teammate. In baseball and in life, Jesse was gusto and grace under pressure, or courage, as Hemingway decribed it. Jesse and the exemplary life that he lived won't be forgotten. Our hearts and minds won't let us.

Adrienne Gauger

May-31 5:22pm

Your husband taught my class with such passion that it forced me love the history of the Vietnam War. He is my favorite professor, and I cannot express adequately the sadness that I feel for this world that has lost such an incredible man. May you be blessed everyday and know that he's by your side always. Lots of love to you.

Debbie Levin

May-31 8:58pm

Anne,<br /> I offer my sincerest condolences to you at this difficult time. Jesse epitomized warmth and caring. He was always willing to lend a hand of support to colleagues and friends. I know that he will be greatly missed at the College.<br /> <br /> Debbie Levin

Sue Lawrence

Jun-1 10:25am

Jesse was my colleague, a friend at MCCC, and a wonderful mentor. I was lucky to have known him. He also taught my 2 sons in the Vietnam War class, and they loved him, too. He will not only by missed, but his influence will stay with us. We will always be thankful for that.

Dave Rosso

Jun-1 1:19pm

Dear Anne,<br /> I believe we met years ago when you and Jessie were first married. Jesse's slide show for the PA Historical Society inspired me to develop a course on the Vietnam War. He was my colleague and friend. And he was a very good man. I am so sorry for your loss.<br /> <br /> Dave Rosso

Cathy Redden

Jun-2 10:46pm

Anne, <br /> Jesse was truly a wonderful, caring, generous man. He was loved and respected by so many people, and his life made a difference. The world is a better place because of him I feel privileged to have known him. I hope it comforts you that he touched so many lives. You are in my prayers.<br /> Cathy Redden

Dear Hodges family - I was in Professor Hodges Vietnam class and looked forward every week to seeing & hearing his amazing stories. He made it the most interesting class I ever took. He was so passionate about the subject, I can just imagine he was the same with all the other wonderful accomplishments in his life. He made me a better person even in only knowing him for 14 weeks. We have been blessed with his company.

I just learned of Jesse's passing recently and wanted to pass my condolences to his family. Jesse graduated from Temple University the year before I did (1967) and I lost track of him until I head of his death. We were both in the Army ROTC program at Temple. May I also send condolences from Dr Irving Cohen a fellow class mate of Jesse who would also like to share in my condolences.

Ed Cardon

Aug-12 11:16am

Jesse and I attended Temple University together; he was a senior and I was a freshman. Jesse invited me to try out for the ROTC Ranger cadet program and I was accepted. Jesse was a great leader and friendly person. I lost track of him and did not learn of his death until this year. Jesse influenced me to become an Army officer and volunteer for the Infantry in Vietnam. Jesse influenced my life in more ways than I can count. I hope he had a good life and my belated condolences to his family.

So sorry to hear about the loss of Craig. I've heard my mother talk about him for years when I was young, although I never met him then. I finally met him about 2 years ago at Pauls wedding, and it was a pleasure.

I remember the first time I knew I was like my father. I kidded a parking attendant about leaving a scratch on my car that had been there forever. It was exactly what he would have done. He had a wicked sense of humor! We all inherited that part of him. <br /> <br /> My father was always happy to be with people and let them know it. I was always amazed at how he greeted people and how much joy he had in seeing family and friends. He made everyone feel special. <br /> <br /> I will always treasure my father's great love of family and extended family and thank he and mom forever for their example. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
