Alonzo H. Hodgdon
COCOA, Fla. - Alonzo H. Hodgdon of Cocoa, Fla., formerly of Mt. Desert, passed away on Friday, Jan. 25, 2013.
Born Feb. 12, 1918, Al grew up in Hall Quarry, Mt. Desert Island. He proudly served in the U.S. Army during WWII, fighting in the battle of Guadalcanal. He was a member of the VFW, and maintained connections with several war buddies throughout his lifetime.
He had a lifelong love of dancing, especially with his wife, Glenna.
Retired from the U.S. Postal Service, he was an avid reader and puzzle solver, and he could build or fix anything.
Al (Buster, to his Mt. Desert family) was a hunter since boyhood, and loved climbing Acadia Mountain and lobstering on Somes Sound, Mt. Desert Island. He enjoyed golfing, and at age 90, he jumped out of a plane!
He was predeceased by first wife, Margaret (Mae) Sweeney Hodgdon. Surviving are his wife Glenna (Campbell) Hodgdon; son Stephen Hodgdon, daughter Patricia Turner and husband Daniel, stepsons and their families, David and Debbie Brubaker, Dennis and Penny Brubaker, Jon and Libby Brubaker, Jerome Brubaker; seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and a great-great-grandson.
