Obituary for Gerald Ieshh Dowd

Gerald Ieshh Dowd 37 years old came into this world March 30, 1981. He lived on the Resighini Rancheria and was known by his friends as G, or big G or -Rez Rider.

Gerald started his journey onto the other side on April 27, 2018 in Humboldt County. His presence will be surely missed by many souls.

Gerald’s parents are Rick Dowd Sr, and Tawny Scott, his mother Modesta Lopez.
Gerald had a warm soul with a big loving heart. He had a bright smile that could turn frown upside down. He had a notorious laugh that could get you to laugh along with him. He not only laugh at you, but at himself. He was very upbeat and always beamed positive energy, a good vibe and almost always wore a smile. He was a very calm and peaceful person always trying to see the glass half full. Or didn’t see any reason to be mad that if it was half empty. He was very kind, loving and extremely family orientated. He grew up in a tight knit Traditional dance family and always happy to be with his family.

He was always willing to help out in any way that he could. It did not matter what time of day or night. He never expected to be given anything in return. That was just the type of person he was. He loved playing dominos, chess, dice, and cards besides traveling up and down the river.

He was super close to his Father Rick Sr. , and sister KeShan Dowd. Gerald helped raise his nephews loved helping them throughout their lives even babysitting. Gerald took great pride in his culture by gathering tea, seaweed, catching eels, fishing, hunting, dancing, and fasting. He was on the Resighini Rancheria Tribal Council off and on over the years. He also worked in the Grizzly Paw Community Garden coming up with new or more ideas about the garden and carving classes.

Proud Dowd.
