Don and Harriet moved to Hilton Head in 1996 where they enjoyed the "island life". They
could be found, nightly, out and about town dining at their favorite restaurants.... and
there were many. Don was easy going and could strike up a conversation with anyone.
He was the "Norm" of cheers, he had his favorite seat at the bar. Don will also be
remembered, by their neighbors in Long Cove, for the yearly Thanksgiving morning
breakfast buffet he and Harriet would set up for players as they passed by. Don was a
kind and loving person who made you feel welcome. He was a true gentleman with a
kind loving heart. He was a great storyteller of his life, travels, work relationships and the
love for his family. Don loved playing golf with his friends. Later in life he became a self -

collection. He was a music lover, especially jazz. Some of his favorite stories include; his
younger years spending time with his cousins; his days as a high school football referee;
how he earned his high school basketball nick-name
"Deadly Don Dodd"; playing the trombone with the Washington Redskins marching
band; his love for flying his plane and his sailing excursions with his life-long friends.
