Herbert D. Dodd, Q.C.

September 12, 1949 ~ May 19, 2015

With much sadness, we announce the passing of our dearly loved husband, father, grandfather and brother at the age of 65, due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease.

Herb was raised in Creston, BC, the son of the late Herbert and Gwendolyn Dodd. He graduated from the University of Victoria and the University of Toronto Law School. For 36 years, until his retirement in 2012, he enjoyed a successful and rewarding legal practice at the Vancouver firm of Farris & Co. He was named Queen’s Counsel in 2008.

He is survived by his wife Ruth; daughters Amy (Rob Kushlick) and Melissa (Martin Sheard); son Jamie (Nadya Wilkinson); grandchildren James and Madeline Kushlick, and Nathan and Benjamin Sheard. He is also survived by his sister Lynn Buchanan (Claud); brother Alan Dodd (Sharon), and numerous nephews, nieces and cousins.

A private Memorial Service for family and friends will be held in the near future.

For people wishing to make a charitable donation in Herb’s name, please consider Paul’s Club, a social and recreational program for those with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease (www.paulsclub.ca).

The family would also like to thank the staff at the Fair Haven United Church Home for the kind and compassionate care given to Herb.
