Don and Evie farmed in the Brodhead-Albany area his entire working life. In his retirement he enjoyed gardening, woodworking and fishing with Evie. They did everything together in this life; now they continue in the next. Don and Evie attended Living Word Church in Brodhead for many years and built many wonderful relationships there.

His parents, Ralph and Doris Dodd, wife Evelyn and brother Rex, preceded Donald in death.

A private family graveside service will take place at a later date at the Greenwood Cemetery in Brodhead. Memorials can be directed to the family in lieu of flowers and sent to DL Newcomer Funeral Home at P.O. Box 26, Brodhead WI 53520.
