Ralph Oliver Dodds passed gently into Jesus’ presence on March 27, 2020, at the age of 87. Born December 24, 1932, in Detroit, Michigan to Ralph and Gertrude Dodds, then growing up in Perth, Ontario, Ralph was an adventurous young man. He wooed his beloved Ruth with determination and they eventually settled at Breezy Hill Farm, Iona Station, Ontario, in 1967. After a stint in accounting, Ralph pursued a career as a Real Estate Broker until he retired in his late seventies. His family will remember his determination and generous spirit, his strong faith, his perseverance that there is a solution to everything, and always, his breathless and red-faced laughter at his son’s jokes.Ralph is survived by Ken & Belinda, Keith & Sue, Wendy & Phil, and his son-in-law, Dale. His grandchildren Chris & Kara, Matthew, Riley & Madison, Stacey & Bryan, Stephanie & Jonathan, Steve & Kelsey, Jamie & Andrea, Megan & John, Kirstie & Caleb, and Kyle will miss his gentle grin at all their antics. His great-grandchildren Drew, Tyler, Cole, Ben, Sam, Nolan and Jane brought a twinkle to his sky- blue eyes and many a chuckle in his later years.
Ralph is predeceased by his wife Ruth, his daughter Eunice, his sister Annie, and his brother Howard. His eyes would always light up with joy at seeing his siblings and their spouses. He is survived by Marilyn, Mary & Sam, Gilbert & Barbara, Malcohm & Marilyn. His sister-in-law Win (Clayton) and brother-in-law Richard and wife Jan, held a special place in his heart.Due to the current circumstances there will be no service Donations can be made to Future Vision Ministries http://www.fvm.on.ca/donate.html or Gideons https://gideons.ca/give-today
