Lake Almanor Peninsula resident Donald Wilson Dodson peacefully passed from this life to his eternal home Friday morning, Jan. 27, 2006, with his loving and caring family at his side at Seneca District Hospital in Chester.
He was born 78 years ago in Pasadena, Calif., to the late Thomas and Katherine Dodson on Aug. 29, 1927. He attended Pasadena Junior College to obtain his high school diploma before going on to obtain his AA degree at Woodbury College.
