In memory of
DAVID CHARLES DOZIER Jr.
DOZIER, JR., David Charles David Charles Dozier, Jr. was born December 4, 1938 on the Santa Clara Pueblo Indian Reservation near Santa Fe, New Mexico. He passed away June 23, 2020, from complications due to Alzheimer's. He graduated from Pharr San Juan Alamo High School in 1956 and the University of Dallas in 1960, its inaugural class. While at UD, he met Dianne Flusche; they married and together raised four children throughout their 60-year marriage. People of all ages and walks of life gravitated to David because he was a fun-loving, hard-working, fiercely competitive, irreverent, beer-drinking, amazingly compassionate and loyal individual who loved his family and friends beyond words. He began his professional career as a provocative, must-read sportswriter for the Texas Catholic newspaper, then took the opportunity to serve as the classified advertising director at the Dallas Times Herald. In 1974, he and three partners formed DBG&H, an advertising agency that specialized in real estate. At its peak, DBG&H had more than 250 associates in eight offices across the southwest. In 1984, David was honored by President Reagan at a White House ceremony for his work promoting fair housing. He started The Dozier Company, a marketing and advertising firm, with his children in 1988. His greatest pastime was running. Highlights of his running life include completing more than 9000 loops around White Rock Lake and more than 120 marathons. David enjoyed running marathons with friends across the country, including 32 consecutive White Rock/Dallas Marathons and 22 Boston Marathons, as well as the New York City, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, and St. George, Utah marathons each multiple times (several times back-to-back the same weekend). He helped more than 200 individuals train and complete their first marathon and was deeply connected to large groups that convened for years at the Dozier residence before and after entertaining runs. David was an active member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and served as an usher/head usher for more than 50 years. He was the parish's first person to receive the Bishop's Award for Service to the Church. David also volunteered as a certified trainer at the Downtown YMCA for more than 10 years and was named the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas outstanding volunteer in 1996. He was a memorable youth coach for his children's sports teams. David was an avid fan of The University of Texas Longhorns and every team on which his children or grandchildren played. He is survived by his wife Dianne, and their children and spouses, Debbie and Steve Hain, Becky and Shawn McCall, Mike and Kristine Dozier, and Connie and Greg Brevik, and their grandchildren, Cole and Ben McCall, Charlotte and Matt Hain, and Anna and Ella Dozier, as well as his sister and her husband, Bette and Bubba Haidusek and their family. He also leaves behind Wanda Dozier, Migue Dozier and Anya Enos, his cousins and their families of the Santa Clara Pueblo. The family would like to thank the caregivers of Juliette Fowler and David's many friends who visited him regularly while there. David's laughter, unlimited energy, and warmth will never be forgotten. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in his name to the White Rock Lake Conservancy, Bishop Lynch High School, or St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the funeral will be private.
