Twin Falls
     Earl B. Dodge, 80, of Twin Falls, passed away on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2004, at his home with his loving wife and family by his side. Earl was born Sept. 10, 1923, in Arco Pass, Idaho, the son of Oscar LuRaymond and Ruel Gertrude Bischof Dodge. He grew up quickly and took on the responsibilities of the family farm. He was called to serve his country in 1941 and he joined the Army. World War II had just begun and Earl served most of his military career in Okinawa, Japan. On Dec. 24, 1942, in Hailey, Idaho, he married the love of his life, Emma Jeannet Chess. To this union were born three children, Earl B. Dodge Jr., Paul LuRaymond and Elizabeth Ann.
     Earl spent his early life, farming, ranching, as a cattleman, horseman, breaking horses to ride or pull farm machinery. He was raised on a ranch and loved the outdoors. You could always find him hard at work. Earl also drove truck, first for Ida-Cow (until their operation moved to Caldwell, Idaho) and then later for Montana Express. He had driven for them right up to present day.
     Earl's hobbies, when he had spare time, were hunting, fishing and woodworking. He was forever having someone give him a drawing or a model of something so that he could try his hand at building it. Many people have seen his handiwork at the Wendell Restaurant -- he rebuilt the buckboard in the storefront from some old scraps that were lying around. It has since been seen in several parades and other events in the Magic Valley. Earl was a very quiet person who showed his love by doing for his family and friends. He will be deeply missed.
     Surviving Earl are his loving wife, Emma; son, Paul Dodge of Jerome; daughter, Ann Dean of Twin Falls; two grandchildren, Kirk Dean and Trevor Dodge; and four great-grandchildren. Also surviving is his sister, Jeanet Green of Jerome, Idaho, and many nieces, nephews and a host of friends. His parents, three sisters, one brother and his 4-month-old son, Earl B. Dodge Jr., preceded him in death.
     The funeral for Earl will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2004, at the Parke's Magic Valley Funeral Home, 2551 Kimberly Road, Twin Falls, with Pastor Dale Metzger officiating. Interment will follow at the Shoshone Cemetery in Shoshone, Idaho. Friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 30, 2004, at the funeral home. All services and arrangements are under the direction of the Parke's Magic Valley Funeral Home of Twin Falls, Idaho. - Published Sunday, August 29, 2004
