Dodd was born in Pasadena, Texas in January 7, 1965. He was a graduate of Sam Rayburn High School Class of 83 and attended The California Culinary Academy and studied at San Jacinto Jr College to pursue his love for cooking and the culinary arts.
Dodd grew up in Pasadena, TX and developed a fondness for sports at a very early age. He was often at the ball park, in the gym, on the field, or court as he enjoyed everything from baseball to tennis. He was also a fan of fishing and would venture out to the lake at any offer. His love for food also came at an early age and he was often teased about fried chicken being his first food as a baby. He would spend much of his life pursuing his love for cooking and grilling- sharing his knowledge and recipes with the rest of his friends and family. Dodd had a quick wit, dry humor and a list of nicknames (or terms of endearment as some would say) ranging from The Pillsbury Doughboy to Uncle Sunshine. Dodd was a good neighbor and one of the most honest and dependable persons you could ever hope to meet- he was always willing to lend a hand. Dodd was a good friend and has one of the best circle of friends you can find. If you knew Dodd, then you know he loved rock n roll music (still has the cassette collection to prove it), funny movies (could quote every line from the Blues Brothers), and beer. Cheers to you, Dodd you will be greatly missed.
