We had the honor of meeting the Hodges Family while being stationed in Beaufort together, and have continued to keep in touch over the years. Both Steven and Jennifer would open their home and hearts to anyone. Steven always had a smile and a personality to entertain. A great man gone too soon. We are praying for comfort and healing in the days ahead for all his family and friends. He will be missed dearly, and we will always remember our friend as a devoted husband and family man, proud father and an honorable Marine.
