Ra’keeim “Roc” Hood was born October 16, 1998 in Ashland, Ohio, but was raised in Mansfield, Ohio.

    I remember watching Roc, Fantasia and Josie when ya’ll lived in VA. He was all smiles. We have some good memories from the short time that we got to know and hang out with your family. We were so sad when y’all moved.
    I remember playing with Fantasia and Roc in Kindergarten. When Fantasia and I were playing My Little Pony or Barbies, he would ask us to come play with him. I remember us all watching Jurassic Park together.
    We are so sorry for your loss. We can’t even imagine your pain. We are praying for your family.
