Hamilton community gathering for funeral of Joshua Hoppe today
Hoppe, 30, had been a teacher Hamilton High School since 2007. On the morning of Dec. 4, he died in a car crash on M-40. The Ford Fusion he was driving struck a Kenworth truck and trailer driven by David St. John, 54, of Wellston.
- Services will be held today at 1:30 p.m. at Christ Memorial Church, 595 Graafschap Road. Many students and staff members were Tweeting as they prepared for the service, even those who couldn't make it.
- All students in the Hamilton Community Schools district had the day off today so they could attend the service.
- Students also posted tributes and memories to their teacher and coach on social media. Hoppe taught social studies and coached freshman baseball and junior varsity football.
- The fact that the hamilton community is writing or sharing about Hoppe with such love and compassion shows how much we are a community... can't wait to see you again one day with Jesus! Woot woot! #htownstrong
