Gary Dodson


Gary Lee Dodson, 48, of College Station, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on June 15, 2021. A Life Celebration will take place at Hillier of College Station on Saturday, June 26, at 2 pm with a reception to follow.

Gary was born on August 18, 1972, in Corpus Christi, Texas, to his parents, Giles Lee and Glenda Dodson. He spent his childhood growing up in many towns across Texas, such as Corpus Christi, Edinburg, Victoria, Huntsville, and College Station. While growing up, Gary discovered that he had a God-given talent for art. As a teenager, he painted several murals at his school, Victoria High School. He had a passion for creating unique art and sharing it with others.

After Gary graduated from Victoria High School, he decided to pursue higher education and went to college. He first attended Blinn College and later transferred to Sam Houston State University where he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Art History. After graduating from college, Gary pursued a career as an artist and substitute teacher at A&M Consolidated High School and College Station High School. Gary loved his job as an artist and was incredibly talented. He created many pieces around College Station such as the "Howdy" sign outside of Aggieland Outfitters. Gary also designed an inscription of "Aggies" once used at Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park.

In Gary's spare time, he enjoyed World War I reenacting, singing karaoke at the Tap, attending concerts, watching Star Wars movies, and most of all, going to Aggie sports games.

While Gary loved football games, baseball was his favorite. He would always jokingly call Aggie baseball his "love" and Aggie football his "expensive mistress."

As much as Gary loved Aggie baseball, there was nothing more important to him than his relationship with God. Gary accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at a very young age and kept the faith his entire life. He loved God above all things and dedicated his life to serving Him. Gary was a member of Central Church and attended very regularly.

Gary connected with the love of his life, Tammy Bass, through their mutual love for God, baseball, and Star Wars. Gary and Tammy fell deeply in love and she gave him the best last year of his life.

Gary was a loving, encouraging, and exceptional man of God. He was a loyal friend and could always make those around him smile. Gary had a great sense of humor and loved to joke around with friends and family. He always seemed to have a favorite movie or TV show quote ready to use at any given time. Gary will be missed by all who were blessed to have known him.
The memories of Gary are remembered by his mother, Glenda Dodson, and his brother, Glenn Dodson, sister-in-law, Melanie Dodson, nephews, Darren Dodson, Kevin (wife Rebecca, and daughter due July 21st, Piper Jo) Dodson, and niece, Morgan Dodson. Gary is reunited in heaven with his Father, Giles Lee Dodson and many other relatives.

Gary's family would like to extend a special thank you to the Olsen Field at Bluebell Park Section 203 Raggies, Aggieland Outfitters who printed his t-shirt designs and to College Station ISD.
