Dwight A. Dodge, 71, was carried home on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. His final days were spent with his beloved significant other, Elizabeth “Liz” Nawrocki, by his side.

Born August 31, 1949, the son of the late Daniel and Helen Dodge of Meriden, CT, he was both a graduate of Maloney High School and alumnus of Middlesex Community College. His passions were not often ignited behind a desk, but rather from the beauty of the outdoors or anywhere he could create music, carpentry, or grow a garden. Dwight was a man who thrived on structure and predictability yet held a deep fondness for adventure. He often philosophized the meaning of life, instilled a hunger for knowledge in his children, and believed there lay a deep spiritual meaning behind everyday experiences.

In his earlier years Dwight dedicated a great deal of time to playing the guitar, keyboard, and drums with his close friends and teaching his son to play baseball. He enjoyed the beach (so long as he got there before the sun did) and taking his children to the local pond to see the wildlife or throw a frisbee around. In his later years, his favorite past time was watching the birds from his front porch, enjoying the company of his significant other, and visits from his grandchildren.

Dwight is survived by his beloved Elizabeth, brother George Dodge (BeBe), daughters, Melody Dodge, Abby Vasquez (Jeffrey), Dana Dodge, Amanda Beckett (David), and Alicia Lissie; son, Patrick Dodge; six grandchildren, Olivia, Alexandria, Kingston, Christian, Roman, and Giovanni, and many nieces and nephews. Dwight was predeceased by his sister Doreen and brothers Daniel and Homer.

His family will receive friends and relatives on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 from 9 – 10:00 am at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main St, Meriden. Burial will be private. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers his family requests you support your local cultural and arts community. For online condolences, please visit

Dad, I miss you more than I can comprehend right now. You are the reason I am who I am. You are such a deep soul and I’m eternally grateful we connected as father and daughter. I remember so much flooding back at this time and it’s both beautiful and painful because it’s a closed chapter, yet I’ll never have to let go of each experience, sound, touch, resonance of unconditional love we shared. What we had was a connection that I won’t get with another, and that’s more than okay with me. I love you. I promise I’ll instill that hunger for knowledge and love for music and earth mother in Olivia and Giovanni. Come close in my dreams please. I always needed you then and now. Be with me often; we are now free to build a new beyond. Always your Melody Akita
