Funeral set for firefighter hit while collecting money

Posted: Updated:

A funeral service is set for a Lansing firefighter who authorities say was deliberately struck by a pickup truck as he collected money for charity.

Visitation for 35-year-old Dennis Rodeman is Tuesday at Gorsline Runciman Funeral Home in Lansing and a funeral is Wednesday at Michigan State University's Breslin Center in East Lansing.

Rodeman was hit Wednesday while participating in an annual fundraising campaign.

The Lansing State Journal reports those at a ceremony Friday in Lansing marking the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks had Rodeman's death at top of mind. Members of the fire department embraced and speakers talked about Rodeman.

A Lansing man is charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing death and fleeing police.
