  • Guestbook
Gregory Leigh Dodd, 73, of Lubbock passed away on Thursday, September 2, 2021. He was born in Kermit, Texas on December 11, 1947 to Walter Leonard and Ruth Ethel (Gordon) Dodd. Gregory married Dixie Jean Farrar on December 29, 1970 and together they celebrated 50 years of marriage. He proudly volunteered and served his country in the U.S. Air Force where he served in the Vietnam War. Gregory worked for Worley Welding for over 20 years and never retired as he preferred to keep himself busy throughout his life. He was a quiet, humble man who showed acts of love through service. He was a hard worker and enjoyed spending time working in his yard where he always had a beautiful garden. Gregory inspired his children to be hard workers and it was his inspiration that led his grandson, Tucker, to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force as he had done. He and his wife were longtime members of Northside Church of Christ and South Plains Church of Christ before moving to Sunset Church of Christ where they currently serve.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Dixie Dodd; son, Chance Dodd of Lago Vista, Texas; daughter, Monica Dodd Ryan of Lubbock; sister, Lana Cooley of Midland and two grandchildren, Makenna Ryan and Tucker Ryan; and a number of cousins, nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials to any Veterans charity that gives back to Veterans such as Disabled American Veterans, Tunnel to Towers or Wounded Warrior Project.

I am without words to express the heartache I feel for your loss. So I went to the bible. I love you and I will miss Gregs humor. I know that Greg is in the perfect place as Revelation 21:4 says, And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
For you and your family I pray
2 Thessalonians 3:16 - Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way.
I am grieving with you and thinking of you always.

Greg was always kind and helpful with a great work ethic.
It was always a joy to go to work early and visit Greg at Worley’s before starting the day.
