Friends and family, members and staff came together at the DGA Theater on Oct. 17 for a celebration of life for New York Local President Mike Hodge, who passed away Sept. 9. President Gabrielle Carteris, EVP Rebecca Damon and National Executive Director David White spoke on behalf of SAG-AFTRA, remembering Hodge’s passion, patience and gentle perseverance during his years of union service. Karen Hodge Thomas, Hodge’s sister, recalled her brother’s devotion to family and his joy in helping others. Members of a cappella group Sweet Honey in the Rock reminisced about his early days as an actor and performed two songs that brought cheers from the audience.
