Dr. Lawrence Burnham Dodge departed this life on 17 July 2012 in a Dallas hospital. Larry was born in Oakland, California 69 years ago. He lived most of his life in California, Montana, Dallas, and Panama. He is survived by his wife, 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Dr. & Mrs. Charles A.

Having earned a doctorate of Sociology in 1972 from Brown University, Dr. Dodge was a professor at the University of New York in Plattsburgh and the University of Montana in Missoula.
He was also a professional landscape photographer who built a photographic souvenir publishing business in Montana and Wyoming. After selling that business, the Dodges moved to
Panama and built a B&B. Upon selling the B&B, Larry turned his attention to music and writing lyrics. He was an active member of the Dallas Songwriters Association.
Throughout the years, he was a political activist, mostly with the Libertarian Party, and he was the co-founder of the Fully Informed Jury Association.
Dr. Dodge was a nationally recognized political educator, speaker and commentator on juries, and was featured in countless news and magazine articles as well as radio and television programs.
He was a brilliant, kind, generous, and caring man who touched many lives with his knowledge, his friendship, and his love of life, freedom, and people.
Friends and family will gather for memorials in Dallas, Helmville MT, and Panama.
Larry's favorite organizations were The Fully Informed Jury Association, Habitat for Humanity, The Property and Environment Research Center, and Gun Owners of America.
