Cory Dodge Obituary
Dodge, Cory Jordan

Cory Jordan Dodge, 25, of Portland, Ore., passed away suddenly in a tragic car accident on July 5, 2013. Born on July 1, 1988, in Rockford, Ill., he was the son of Thomas and Janet (Berta) Dodge originally from Streator, Ill. He is survived by his parents, his brother, Seth Dodge and his wife, Tiffani, two nieces Stella and Delaney; his brother, Shane Dodge, and his girlfriend, Jorie Boatwright.

He is also survived by Don Dodge (uncle), Ken and Joan Berta (aunt and uncle), Gayle Duttlinger (aunt), and cousins, Kelli (Berta) Duvall and family, Jodi Berta, Stacey Jones and family, Shilo and Jerry Velez, Dannon Vogel, Donavan and Lana Dodge, Trina Hunt and family, Troy Brown and family, as well as a countless number of true friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Earl and Esther Dodge, grandparents Daniel and Maxine Berta, and his uncle, Daniel Vogel.

Cory attended schools in Louisiana and Sheboygan, Wis. He moved to Portland, Ore., in May of 2010 to be near his brothers. He thoroughly enjoyed sports. He played basketball at Sheboygan North High School and participated annually in the Gus Macker tournament. He was a huge fan of Dirk Norwitski of the Dallas Mavericks.

He basically grew up in Sheboygan, Wis. His friends there were so special to him, which made his move to Portland difficult at first, but he quickly made many new friends in the Portland area. He was employed at Kells Brew Pub and the people there were like his extended family.

Cory had the heart of an angel and a smile that could light up a room instantaneously. He lived life to the fullest and really enjoyed spending time with his nieces Stella and Delaney.

Cory loved life and wanted to do it all-rafting the river in Portland, fishing for crab at the coast, and most recently hiking Mt. St. Helen. He loved spending time with his families-us and the Kells family that had taken him under their wings like they did with all of our boys! Family and friends truly meant everything to Cory.

Our hearts are all breaking but we were fortunate to have Cory in our lives for the very short period of time that he was here. He will live on forever in us with great memories and will be greatly missed by all.
