Eugene R. (Gene) Dodson Obituary

October 9th, 1952 – December 9th, 2014

Sadly, Gene left us December 9th, leaving us with broken hearts and also with treasured, larger than life memories to keep us going.

Gene passed away in Chile last week where more than 100+ people from a small Chilean town attended a funeral service in honor.

Though a life-long resident of Yuba City, Gene's professional expertise and larger than life personality, resulted in him having friends literally all around the world who have fond memories of his deep and resonating voice and his direct-to-the- point personality that was quick to laugh, quick to point out areas to improve and quick to build up and encourage. His family will remember the physically imposing "man's man" as a gregarious, large and loving teddy bear to his family

He leaves behind his beloved wife of 35 years; Sandi, his adult daughters; Kelly, Shelly, Alissa, their families including his six grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings; Bill, Jim, John, Alan, Donna, his uncle Jim and by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws.

Gene is preceded in death by his parents, his sister Sheila and his son Aaron who died tragically at age seven and half.

All of Gene's friends and family are invited to attend a last, drop-in, viewing at Ullrey's Funeral home Tuesday morning, December 23, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 am, 817 Almond St., YC, and to attend a Christian funeral service open to all at 1:00 pm at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1470 Butte House Rd, YC, the service will be immediately followed by a graveside prayer service at Sutter Cemetery.
