DODD, Nicholas "Nick" - It is with great sadness that we must announce after a brief illness, Nicholas David Dodd passed with his family by his side. Nick, 61, left us on Friday, July 5th, 2019 at the Toronto General Hospital. Loving husband to his wife Shona of 39 years. Amazing father and best friend to both Kyle and Logan. Son of the late Roberts Percy Dodd and Sallie Coral (Ryan). Son-in-law of Rosemary Easton and the late George Easton. Nick is survived by his younger brother Bob Dodd of Kenilworth, UK. His beloved sister-in-laws Donna and Jane, brothers-in-law Hugh, Craig and Mark. Not forgetting his family pets, Maiili and Hemi.

Nick grew up in Kenilworth, England. He was an All England level Cricket and Rugby player. After marrying in 1980, Nick and Shona left for Canada, sight unseen and immediately fell in love with this country. Professionally, he was a corporate banker in the UK and continued this career path in Canada. Due to his love of aviation through his father, a Lancaster Bomber Pilot in WWII, Nick changed his career path and soon became a leader in the aviation field, buying and selling jet engines into the commercial aviation marketplace throughout the world.

Nick was always a devoted lover of sports and was instrumental in organizing the first international indoor cricket match held at the SkyDome. Over 40,000 people attended and a record donation was made to the United Way. Nick took great pride in his boys pursuing their chosen sport of basketball, as they did so on the international stage. Nick was his own man and didn’t suffer fools gladly, but also believed in giving credit where credit is due. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends the world over.

Friends are invited to meet with the family at the Gilbert MacIntyre & Son Funeral Home, Rockwood Chapel, 117 Guelph St., Rockwood, Ontario on Saturday, July 20th, 2019 from 5-7pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation (Transplants). A celebration of life will be held at a later date for close family and friends. Online donations and condolences can be made at

I was at school with Nick at Henry V111. Same year ,same form . He was a great cricketer!. We kept in touch on face book. He was clearly a lovely family man with family values and this sad news shocked me to the core. I'm so very sorry for you all. My sincere condolences. Brian Sanzom, Warwick, UK.
