Sheri Koch, President of the NFB of West Virginia, has asked me to 
distribute this widely. Many of you will have known Brad Hodges, as 
he worked at the National Center for several years.


Bradley Hodges, 61, passed away peacefully at Emogene Dolin Jones 
Hospice House, Huntington, WV on January 16, 2019.

Brad is survived by his husband Joseph Regnier, of Huntington, WV, 
his parents, Alfred and Colleen Hodges of Rochester, MN, brothers 
Michael (Katie) of Chanhassen, MN, and David (Sherry) of Ave Maria, 
FL, and several nieces and nephews.

Brad was born in Waukeegan, IL, December 5, 1957. He attended St. 
John's College, Saint Cloud, MN. He lived in Chicago for a number of 
years while operating a food service kiosk.

Brad then worked as a rehabilitation specialist at the University of 
Wisconsin, Stout, for several years.  Following that Brad was a 
Technology Accessibility Specialist at the National Federation of the 
Blind in Baltimore, MD.

Brad and Joe moved to Huntington when he became a writer for Access 
World on line magazine for the American Foundation for the 
Blind.  Most recently he freelanced providing accessibility training 
to the visually impaired and was under contract to provide services 
to veterans for the Veterans Administration of West Virginia.

For many years he served on various FCC committees concerning web, 
internet and cell phone accessibility for the visually impaired.

At Brad's request, there will be no services.  Celebration of his 
life will be held at a later date.  Memorial contributions can be 
made to the National Federation of the Blind of West Virginia, 833 
Chappell Road
Charleston, West Virginia 25304
