A memorial gathering celebrating the life of Donald W. “Bill” Dodson, Sr., age 79, of Buckeye Lake, will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2018. from 10 a.m. until Noon at The Heath Chapel of Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral Cremation Service, 1249 Hebron Road, Heath.
Bill passed away on Monday, September 17, 2018, at the Selma Markowitz Care Center (operated by Hospice of Central Ohio) with his loving family at his side.
He was born December 5, 1938, in West Liberty, Ohio, to the late William D. and Marjorie (Kiser) Dodson.
Bill was an easy going, happy go lucky, life-of-the-party kind of guy who will be sadly missed. He was an avid horseshoes player, bowler and golfer who especially enjoyed playing the guitar. He was a member of the Buckeye Lake Eagles #2801, Buckeye Lake VFW #1388 and the Buckeye Lake AMVETS Post #51. Being with his family and spending time with his grandchildren was most important to him.
He is survived by a son, Donald W. “Bill” Dodson, Jr. of Alma, West Virginia; three grandchildren, Marshall Lee Dodson, Garrett William Dodson and Trevor James Dodson; three half-brothers; and one half-sister.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Beverly Gibson.
Family and friends may call from 10 a.m. until Noon on Saturday, September 22, at The Heath Chapel of Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral & Cremation Service, 1249 Hebron Road, Heath, to meet with the family and share memories of Bill.
The Heath Chapel of Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral & Cremation Service is assisting the family with arrangements.
