Victor H. Hodgin Jr., 46, a Westinghouse Electric Corp. employee, died Dec. 10 of leukemia at his home in Bel Air.
Mr. Hodgin, who had been diagnosed as having the disease in 1986, had been a security receptionist at the Westinghouse plant at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport for about 10 years.
Earlier, he owned a mail order toy company, the Jack-Al Marketing Co., about three years after working for the Maryland National Bank and for a construction company.
He worked with his father for about five years, as a partner in a real estate business and as vice president of the Alpha Investment Management Co.
The Baltimore native graduated from the Kenwood High School and attended the University of Maryland at College Park for a year before entering the Marine Corps.
He returned to college as a part-time student and made the dean's list before being awarded his bachelor's degree in 1989, despite missing his final examinations because of his illness.
The former resident of Middle River had been a member of the Volunteer Ambulance Company there for 12 years.
He belonged to the Jephthah Lodge of the Masons.
Survivors include his wife, the former Mary Frances Bruder; three daughters, Emilie, Meredith and Lindsay Hodgin, all of Bel Air; a son, Victor N. Hodgin of Bel Air; his parents, Gertrude S. and V. Harvey Hodgin Sr. of Middle River; and a brother, William M. Hodgin of Eldersburg.
Funeral services were held Dec. 12 at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Bel Air, where he was a member.
