After an illness of several months, during which time he had so often expressed his wish that he might go Home, Owen Dodge passed away at his home here about seven o'clock Thursday morning. Mr. Dodge lived on a large fruit farm in Gaines for many years, where he was a successful farmer and fruit grower. About fifteen years ago he came to Freeport and resided for a short time with his sister, Mrs. Ransom Walton. Later he married Mrs. Mary Fish and since then has lived just back of the U.B. church. Mr. Dodge, a firm Christian character, was known by everyone in this community and was respected by all who knew him. He was often seen with a gun or fish pole in Easton. He was 88 years of age and up until has last illness was very spry and youthful. He is survived by the widow, one brother, Simon of Bay Shore, three daughters, Mrs. Elon Plants of Grand Rapids, Mrs. Harold Overholt of Mulliken and Mrs. Frank Ewing of Byron Center, six sons, Hale, Vern, Roy and Fred, all of Grand Rapids, Clinton of Gaines and Roland of Sunfield; thirty-three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held at three o'clock Sunday afternoon at the U.B. church. Rev. J.I. Batdorf preached the sermon, a full church and many floral tributes being mute evidence of the many friends who mourn the passing of this good man. About thirty car loads of relatives and friends followed the funeral car to the Gaines U.B. cemetery, a short distance south of Mr. Dodge's old home, where his body was carried to its last resting place by the six sons. A large crowd of former neighbors and friends awaited the funeral party at the grave.
