Charlie J. Dodge

Charlie J. Dodge passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family after a long fight with COPD. He was born in Granada, CO on July 17, 1933. He was a life-long cattle rancher who believed in a time when a man’s life stood behind his handshake and his word was as good as money in the bank. Mr. Dodge was a member of the Soil Conservation Board, served on the Pueblo District 70 School Board, belonged to the Pueblo County Stockman’s Association, the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, the Colorado Farm Bureau and the Rodeo Cowboy Association, an organization that existed before the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association. He was preceded in death by his daughter Heidi Dodge, his parents Cliff and Zola Dodge and his brothers Dan and Butch Dodge. Mr. Dodge is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Barbara; his daughters, Bobbi Ann (Ken) Highberger, Sandra (Derril) Ackley; and grandsons Jack and Nick Highberger. Special thanks are extended to the remarkable people at Sangre de Cristo Hospice who spent many hours with the family and Mr. Dodge providing loving care. Memorial service will be held on Friday, June 8, 2012 at 11 am in the Rye Home United Methodist Church. The family will receive friends at a luncheon following the services in the adjoining Education Building. In lieu of food and flowers, donations may be made to the Rye Home United Methodist Church or to Sangre de Cristo Hospice. Online condolences at DavisMortuary.com
