    Rest peacefully, Mr. Hocquard. It was 1992 when I took your third grade class, and I still fondly recall your passion for teaching, and the impact you had on sooo many lives. Gummy worms. Country line dancing. And some academics maybe in between. A life well lived, and one that made a positive difference in the lives of countless others.

    I worked with Jeff for many years at Reed City Area Public Schools. I always admired the way he related to his students, making each one feel special. I was amazed that he taught his classes of students how to play checkers, chess, and to line-dance, along with learning the regular curriculum. He made learning fun! He was an excellent playwright and his students put on exceptional plays with wonderful costumes. Jeff was also was a Veteran – attending local assemblies which honored his service. So Jeff – one last time – thank you for serving our community and country. You will always be remembered!
