There will be a moment of silence tomorrow morning to honor the tragic death of 35 year old Lansing Firefighter Dennis Rodeman, according to the Lansing State Journal.  By all appearances, Rodeman was intentionally run over while collecting donations for MDA at the corner of Cedar and Jolly streets in South Lansing yesterday afternoon.

As has been tradition on 9/11 since the attack on our nation by terrorists in 2001, there will be a ceremony honoring Fire and Emergency personnel in downtown Lansing tomorrow morning, beginning at 8:30 in Wentworth Park at 333 E. Michigan Avenue. The ceremony this year will begin with a tribute to Dennis Rodeman, who was also a Marine who served our nation in Iraq.

Donations to can be made here to the family of Rodeman, who just got married this past June. His wife is expecting their first child.

Services to honor Rodeman, a Vermontville native, will be held Wednesday, September 16th, 10AM at the Breslin Center on the campus of Michigan State University.

22 year old Grant Jacob Taylor of Lansing has been charged in connection with the murder of Rodeman.
