Jeremy Lee Dodds, age 31, passed away at his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on May 28, 2019.
He was born on Dec. 20, 1987, in Bellingham, to Eddie and Paula (Denison) Dodds. Jeremy attended Lynden public schools and was a member of the class of 2006. He was born in the middle of a snowstorm, which may be the reason he loved Mt. Baker and snowboarding so much! He loved his family and his friends very much and he will be greatly missed! He was such a caring person to everyone, whether you just met him or had known him forever. He had a gift for making everyone feel special and loved!
He is survived by his mother, Paula Denison Dodds, of Corpus Christi, Texas, and father, Eddie Dodds (Zaida), of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; sister Lisa “Nikki” Schoenfeldt (Matt) of La Vernia, Texas; brother Justin Dodds of San Antonio, Texas; stepsisters Zaida and Jessica Patino Aguirre of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; nephew and niece Tristan and Madison Schoenfeldt of La Vernia, Texas; maternal grandparents Lynna Calverley, Pete and Gloria Denison; paternal grandmother Sally Dodds; along with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, special friend Klarissa Lovell and her mother, Kim Gutierrez of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
He was preceded in death by paternal grandfather Edwin Dodds and maternal grandfather Larry Calverley and his uncle Steve Akers, who coached Jeremy and so many Lynden kids in various youth league sports.
Jeremy spent last Christmas on a snowboarding trip with family that will hold treasured memories forever. Jeremy loved to talk to his mom about the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones” so he would appreciate this quote, “And now his watch is ended.” We love you, Jeremy!
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 15, 2019, in Lynden United Methodist Church, 500 14th St. Jeremy always wanted to be on Mt. Baker forever, so we will be going up to Mt. Baker after the service to honor his wishes. Anyone who would like to come along is welcome.
