Obituary - Jan.24, 2013

March 14, 1926 - Jan. 19, 2013

Leslie Dotson, Jr. went to be with his Lord and family in heaven, on Jan. 19, 2013, peacefully at home.

Leslie was born to C.L. and Lena May (Brink) Dotson in Pueblo in 1926. As a young man, he worked on several ranches in the Collbran and Ridgeway areas. Moving on to work for the railroad, Mesa and Garfield counties, he then ranched for many years in the Porcupine Creek area south of Rifle.

He was a kind and giving man and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Leslie was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

Leslie was preceded in death by his son, Kenneth Dotson. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Helen (Boor) Dotson; son, Kirk (Patricia) Dotson of Rifle; daughter, Kathy (Rusty) Leech of Grand Junction; grandchildren, Megan (Jeff) Anastacio of Denver and Kari (Joel) Sholtes of Fort Collins; great-grandson, Sawyer Anastacio; and numerous other relatives and friends.

Services will be held in the spring. Notices will follow. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the First Christian Church in Rifle.

Rest in peace our husband, father, and grandfather. Your legacy will be remembered.
