Farewell to Jack Hodge

Jack Scriven Hodge, 88, of Roanoke, Virginia, died peacefully at Brandon Oaks on Saturday, October 2, 2021.

After graduation from the University of Virginia, he served in the United States Army at Ft. Knox, Kentucky. Upon completing his military commitment, he worked for the Virginia Department of Highways as an engineer trainee. Throughout a 39-year career, he rose to his dream job of becoming the department’s chief engineer. As chief engineer, he oversaw the construction of the I-295 Varina-Enon Bridge and the I-664 Monitor- Merrimac Memorial Bridge Tunnel. In 1996 Mr. Hodge retired to the family farm in Blackstone, Virginia, and promptly went back to work as a consultant engineer for Volkert, Inc. for 20 years.

We send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Full Obituary can be read here.
