KEITH PAT DODD, SR, 80, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend to many, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Friday, October 23, 2020 following a brief illness. He was born in Comanche, Texas on May 25, 1940 to Louis Curbello (L.C.) Dodd, Sr. and Gladys Ellington Dodd and spent the majority of his life in Dallas, Texas. In his youth, Keith was athletic and known for having a great smile. He began his career as a Master Electrician with Dallas Power and Light Company (later Texas Utilities) in 1959. He retired in 1992 and devoted his time to family, farming and ranching.

Keith was a passionate musician, having played the guitar throughout his entire life. Patiently teaching his children and grandchildren the guitar and playing the guitar with them was a great source of pride. He had no greater joy than playing and singing together at family gatherings, both large and small.

As a member of the Canary Islands Descendants Association, Keith was an eighth-generation native Texan descended from Juan Curbelo, head of one of the sixteen families originating in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, making the long journey to the Villa de San Fernando (San Antonio, Texas) arriving on March 9, 1731. He was able to research his family lineage during a recent memorable visit to Spain and Yuco, Lanzarote, Canary Islands.

Survived by loving wife of 61 years, Elizabeth Rose King Dodd, sons Keith Pat Dodd, Jr. (John K. Pettiette), Deryl Dwaine Dodd; daughters Cheryl Elaine Dodd Nabors, Marjorie Dodd Sullivan (Michael). Grandchildren Keaton Dodd, Kellen Dodd, Krista Nabors Dick (Nathan), Kara Nabors Dotson (Danny), Colton Nabors, Clayton Nabors, William K. Anderson, III, Katherine Anderson. Great-grandchildren Keller Dotson, Ryder Dotson. Identical twin brother, Kenneth Mike Dodd, Sr. Several in-laws, numerous nieces and nephews and a multitude of friends.

Preceded in death by his parents, Louis Curbello Dodd, Sr., Gladys Ellington Dodd.
Siblings: Louis Curbello Dodd, Jr., Dorothy Ellen Louise Dodd Smith, Jerry Charlene Dodd Young, Richard Doyle Dodd, Roland Floyd Dodd, Nolan Dodd, Danny Ray Dodd, Curtis Hoyt Dodd, Rose Evelyn Dodd.

Immeasurable thanks to his medical team and caregivers: Dwayne C. Miller, MD, Treva Bouquet, Rhonda Pruitt, Miranda Gonzales, Lupe Rodriguez.
Special thanks to Starla Dyson, K’Lynn Porter and wonderful staff at DeLeon Nursing Home and Rehabilitation, and Alpha and Omega Hospice, DeLeon.

Elizabeth, Keith, Deryl, Cheryl, Marjorie, and the rest of the Dodd family! We love you and pray God’s comforting arms around each of you. The Goodwin family love all the Dodds as family. Keith had such a kind heart and loving gentle smile. Walter always looked up to Keith as a role model, he was one of the reasons he named his son Keith. Even after all these years and only seeing each other once in a while, we always pick up where we left off like we just saw you last week. Elizabeth, James at 92 was so sad not to be able to hug your neck but was glad to be in attendance and be able to pay his respects with the rest of us. We will always be here for all of you. We love you all. Love the Goodwin’s.

Elizabeth, hugs to you during this sad time. I know Keith had dealt with issues and he is in a better place but that doesn't totally ease the pain of loss. Praying for comfort for you and the entire family.
