Ronald L. "Ronnie" Dodd Jr.
Age 35 of Canton passed away early Friday morning, July 24, 2009 at Aultman Hospital following a courageous battle with complications from his brain surgery. He was born in Canton, Ohio, on February 3, 1974 to Ronald L. Dodd Sr. and Donna M. (Bruno) Dodd. He proudly served our Country in the United State Marine Corp. Ronnie was a truck driver for many years and was most recently employed with the John Wayne Trucking Company. He was an avid bowler and was a member of several bowling leagues. He enjoyed fishing with his family, camping, canoeing, riding four-wheelers, watching Cleveland Browns and Ohio State football games, and hunting with his son, Tyler. Ronnie loved his sons and spent much of his time with them. He was an avid supporter and follower of his son, Tyler's football and wrestling progress.
Ronnie was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Robert and Patricia Dodd, and maternal grandfather, Carl Bruno.
Survivors include his loving wife, Michelle Dodd and their son, Dustin both of the home, and his son, Tyler Dodd (his mom: Julie) both of Carrollton, OH; his mother, Donna Dodd and his father, Ron Dodd Sr., both of Canton; a sister, Heather (Jeff) Covert and their children, Matthew, Collin, and Kyle, all of Canton; grandparents, Mary (Kerm) Unrue of Canton, Vivian McGrady of Massillon, OH; his in-laws, Sharon and James Clark, Melissa Clark, Jimmy Dean and Missy Clark, and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Ronnie will be missed by his buddies he hung-out with at the Silver Dollar and the ones he drove truck with. He was a strong and good hearted man and he had always carried a smile no matter what room he walked into. We all loved him and will miss him dearly.
