Deputy Warden Roger Hodge died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty at Calhoun State Prison in Morgan, Georgia.

Deputy Warden Hodge had served with the Georgia Department of Corrections for 22 years. He is survived by his wife, seven children, grandchildren, and siblings.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
