To the Doyle family my deepest condolences on the loss of your Husband, father and grandfather. I had the pleasure of enjoying dinners with Dodge years ago and he was fun to be around. Sue, Chrissy, and Nick may you be comforted by the way the entire community seems to have something positive to say about his impact on the people he served. May your hearts be soothed by the fact that he is at peace and in a far better place.

I knew Dodge all my life growing up in Litchfield, and because of him, I was able to become a police officer. We worked together for many years and shared many laughs together. Dodge was dedicated to helping others when they needed help, and was always very caring to others. My family and I will miss you LC-10 this is your final #31 patrol.
