Obituary for Robert Leavitt Dodge

Perkinsville - Robert Leavitt Dodge, 77, of Perkinsville, VT passed away on Sunday, September 07, 2014, following a long illness. He was born on October 25, 1936, to William and Cecile (Leavitt) Dodge. He attended primary school in Springfield, VT, and went on to graduate from the Vermont School of Agriculture in 1955. He was a member of the cross country team and his motto from the yearbook was, “Be a good sport- win or lose”. And he was. He enlisted in the US Army later in 1955 and served as a mechanic in Germany until 1958. Bob was an honest, hard-working man. He founded Dodge Brothers, a concrete contracting business, and was proud to work with his brothers for many years. Bob was predeceased by his parents, his wife, Elsie (Gilman) Dodge, and a grandson, Glen Johnson. He is survived by his children, Chris Dodge and fiancé, Sam, and Chris’s son, Zachary, Deborah Dodge and husband, Lee Wisnioski, and their children, Sheila, Rosie, and Tanner, Jenn (Dodge) Spano and her husband, Michele, and their children, Vito and Dante, brothers, Mark, John, and Joe Dodge, cousin Cecile Gardner, mother-in-law, Lillian Gilman and family, many nieces and nephews and their families, and long-time friends Artie and Rachel Abbott. Bob loved the outdoors and was an avid farmer, gardener, and hunter. He loved to read and to play with his grandchildren. He also loved cats. He was a loving father and husband, a good provider to his family, and he brought comic relief to almost any situation. He will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to Franklin County Hospice or to Ascutney Union Church in Ascutney, Vermont. Services will be held Sunday, September 21st at 1PM at the Ascutney Union Church. Please come prepared to share a story or memory of Bob, if you wish. A burial will follow at Ascutneyville Cemetery.
