Toms River - Arnold Knowles Dodds, on the morning of January 30th, 2018, age 94, passed peacefully from this world to the next. He is survived by his children Dennis & Linda Dodds and Arlene & Walter Yaeger, his grandchildren Ryan & Kate Eckert, Alicia & Vaibhav Sharma, and Sean Dodds, his great-grandchild Kieran Sharma, as well as many cherished nieces, nephews, and friends.

He is predeceased by his beloved wife of 64 years, Anna Mae McFeeley Dodds, his parents Arnold & Katherine, his brother James, and his sister Dorothy.

A long-time resident of Toms River, he never forgot his roots in Northeast Philadelphia. He was a highly-decorated WWII veteran who earned both a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his valor during the Normandy Invasion, the Battle of the Bulge, and the Allied liberation of Dachau. He had a storied career as an engineer at Philadelphia and Fort Monmouth. His accomplishments are many; however, his proudest accomplishment was his family. He was the epitome of a loving and generous husband, father, and grandfather, as well as uncle and friend. His life was guided by his strong personal beliefs, the most valued being strength, integrity, and love - hence his famous sign-off "SIL." He was greatly loved by all who knew him and will be dearly missed.

Visiting Saturday 10:00am until 11:15am at the Silverton Memorial Funeral Home 2482 Church Rd., Toms River. Funeral services will begin 11:15am at the funeral home. Entombment will follow at St. Joseph's Cemetery, Toms River, NJ.
