(Bill) Dodson RN (20 year former Paramedic) passed away this

afternoon at 4:30 Pm at Seton Hosptial, Austin Texas and went to be with the

lord. Bill was one of a few of my BEST friends of 30 years, and my children's

God Father. Bill was my EMS Asst; Director in Luling/Southern Caldwell County

EMS, my Asst: EMS Director in Waller County EMS, my Asst: EMS Director

Brenham/Wasington County EMS . He also help me teach many EMS Schools over the

years. He was also a Paramedic with the City of Austin for a short period.

Bill was the FIRST Paramedic in Caldwell County, Waller County and Washington

County. Bill left EMS to earn his LVN and later his RN. He worked at St Jude

Hospital in Brenham and later at Trinity Medical Center, Brenham once Bohne and

St. Jude merged. He was currently empolyed at St. s Hosptial in . He

was very involved with his RAC. A memorial service is tentatively set for

Saturday, June 17 in at St. s Lutheran Church. Bill fought a hard

fight, and his battle will help future patients in their struggles with heart

failure. Bill showed things in his illness never seen before in Medical Sicence

and I'm sure his case will be reviewed by many across this Country. He is

survived by his wife of 26 years , Darlene, (an RN who also formerly worked in

OB) and teaches at the Temple College LVN Program, and children Bill, Jr., 14,

and , 16 and his Father of Austin. The Dodsons were married 26

years on 6/7/1980, or 26 years ago today. He was loved by many in the medical

community accross the State of Texas. I'll post the Memorial Service info once

the family sorts it out. Once again the service will not be until Sat. June 17,

2006. The family has not had any sleep or rest for 3-4 months and at this time

need to have some privacy, and family time. I will pass on any messages to the

family that you may wish, but please send them to me as private emails. The

family wishes that if you have any stories about Bill to post them on the blog,

or I can send them on to them. They are putting together a scrapbook for his

kids and perhaps a real book if that comes to be. The blog address is

to send your comments if your not a blogger.
