Watch Live Stream of Lansing Firefighter Dennis Rodeman’s Funeral
Funeral services are held today for Lansing fighter Dennis Rodeman, who was killed last week.
Rodeman's funeral is held at the Breslin Center at MSU beginning at 10 a.m. You can see the entire service in the embedded video player. Afterward, a 32-mile procession will take place from East Lansing to Charlotte.
Rodeman, 35, was killed on Sept. 9 by a hit-and-run driver while participating in an annual fundraiser to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Rodeman, a seven-year veteran of LFD, was also a veteran of Charlie Company, 1st Battalion of the 24th Marine Regiment, United States Marine Corps. He served his country with great pride, bravery and ability, having survived a tour of duty in Fallujah, Iraq, one of the most dangerous places in the world. It is beyond comprehension that this American hero lost his life on the streets of Lansing while collecting charitable contributions for children afflicted by muscular dystrophy.
The City of Lansing, Lansing Fire Department and IAFF (International Association of Fire Fighters) Local 421 have joined together to raise funds for Rodeman's. Click here to find the GoFundMe page.
