I remember Mr. Hock from Hammarskjold...and later on as an adult from St. Peters. As a middle school teacher today, I know what a hard job he had...and how great he was at it. Rest in peace..and my thoughts are with his family.

Mr. Hock, as I knew him, was my teacher 30 years ago. Though I don't remember all my teachers from long ago...him I will never forget. He has touched the lives of many people and helped guide those in position to change the world today. Thank you for your dedication to the youth of yesterday, today and tomorrow. My deepest sympathy to your family and friends.
