The family of Harold “Fuzz” Dodds wishes to express with deepest sadness and regrets the passing of a beloved son, father, grandfather, brother, and dear friend. Fuzz was loved by all he touched with his impeccable gift of gab.

There was not a person he met that he was not a loyal friend to. Throughout his life, Fuzz was a hard worker, whether it be for his occupation or to help out a friend in need.

Since his retirement, he has devoted his time to his family whom have cherished every moment of precious time spent with him.

His grandchildren were his world, his pride and joy. Pappy Fuzz always took the opportunity to express how proud he was of each of them. Our lives will never be the same until we meet again.
