Jenkins said the Rev. Dodwell "in many ways was larger than life. He was at times loud and seemed to insist upon his way. Yet deeper than that was a man who loved God and God's people and who had a kind heart and spirit."
The Rev. Dodwell held several key roles in the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana. He was its assistant secretary or secretary for 34 years and also was a former member of the diocesan Executive Board and past president of the diocesan Standing Committee.
He remained interested in the affairs of Seabury-Western, serving two nine-year terms as a trustee, and was awarded an honorary degree of doctor of divinity.
