He enlisted in the Army in 1942 and rose to the rank of Sergeant before being commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the Corps of Engineers. During World War II, he served in both the European and Pacific Theaters of Operations, receiving combat citations in each. Post-World War II he served additional tours of duty in Korea, Japan, and Germany. During his long career, he rotated between numerous troop command and Corps Civil Works and military construction assignments.

Col. Denison received bachelor and masters degrees in engineering from Auburn and Texas A & M Universities, respectively. His military schools include the Engineer Career Officers Course at Fort Belvoir, Virginia; Army Command and General Staff College; and the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in Washington, D.C.

Col. Denison's final active duty assignment was as District Engineer of the Corps' Wilmington District. He retired from the Army in August 1971. During his long military career he received numerous awards and decorations.

Dunbar Oswald Godbold  

COLUMBIA - A memorial service for Dr. Dunbar Oswald Godbold, U.S. Army (Ret.), 73, will be held 11:00 a.m. Saturday, August 20, 2011, at Washington Street United Methodist Church. The family will receive friends from 5 until 7:00 p.m. Friday, August 19, 2011, at Dunbar Funeral Home, Devine Street Chapel.

Dr. Godbold died Tuesday, August 16, 2011. Born September 10, 1937, in Columbia, he was a son of the late Cash Ellerbe and Laura Oswald Godbold. He graduated from Old Columbia High School and the University of S.C. with a B.A. in history. He graduated from the Medical College of Virginia (now VCU) in Richmond with a D.D.S. He was commissioned a captain in the U.S. Army in July 1963. He served in Germany from 1963 to 1966 and served a tour of duty in Vietnam from 1967 to 1968. From 1968 to 1972, he was in private practice until he joined the staff of the Veterans Administration. He joined the Army Reserve in 1968 and was a member of the 385th Medical Detachment and the 885th Medical Company in Florence for 25 years, and commanded both units. He retired with the rank of full colonel. After retirement, he mentored both medical and dental students for more than 10 years.

Survivors include his wife of 45 years, Nancy Wymelenberg Godbold; daughter, Jennifer; sons, Gene and Van; daughters-in-law, Kristen and Toni; 12 grandchildren; brother, Cash and sister-in-law, Ann. He was a lifetime member of Washington Street United Methodist Church.

Dunbar proudly sponsored a Junior Tennis League team for 30 years. He coached his children when they were younger and spent hundreds of hours training them on a backboard he set up in the driveway. He had an affinity for the canine species and adopted many over the years. He frequently noted ‚Ä" with some complacency ‚Ä" the congruence of his initials with his favorite animal. His kindness, however, often brought them to obesity.

A supporter of the Alston Wilkes Society, he spent several years visiting prisoners. He enjoyed good stories, laughter and quirky views of the world. He was prone to introspection but could be highly conversable; he made many friends. He played tennis into his 50s when he could still break 14 minutes in a two mile run. He was fond of his pipe, his porch, and a moderately strong libation sometimes taken scandalously early in the day. He appreciated his genealogy and joked about venerating his ancestors. He viewed yard work as an ideal foundation for a moral character and too much TV as its ruination. He enjoyed the poetry of Robert Frost, the 23rd Psalm, the repertoire of Trustus Theater, Micah 6:8, and the sayings of Jesus, particularly John 3:16. He was, above all, eager to meet his Savior. While he could sometimes be heard to mischievously question the authority of the apostle Paul, his family trusts that they are now reconciled.


Theodore Goellner

Ted Goellner passed away from a hemorrhagic stroke on Thursday, June 10, 2010. He was 68 years old and died peacefully at Eisenhower Hospital with his wife and son at his bedside.

Ted was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Richard and Celia Goellner and moved to Parma, Ohio when he was a teenager. He excelled in school and was a member of a club called the Thetas. It was in Parma that he met GeorgeAnn when she asked him out on their first date. It was the beginning of a beautiful love story. Ted attended Purdue University on a full scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management. He was a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. Just before his senior year at Purdue, Ted married GeorgeAnn, the love of his life and best friend. He attended the University of Cincinnati on a fellowship and graduated with a Master of Business Administration.

After graduation, Ted joined Ford Motor Company and worked there for thirty-one years. One month after starting work with Ford, he received his active duty orders and was a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. He served two years as a combat engineer, paratrooper and company commander in Aschaffenberg, Germany.

Returning to Ford, Ted began as a zone manager in Atlanta, where their son Mark was born. He advanced rapidly through sales and marketing positions in Detroit, Kansas City, Los Angeles, St. Louis, San Francisco and Toronto, where he was Vice President, General Sales of Ford of Canada.

In 1997, Ted and GeorgeAnn moved to PGA West in La Quinta, Calif. He always said it was the happiest time of his life. Though he struggled with his golf game, he enjoyed playing with GeorgeAnn and his buddies and their wives. He got bored being retired and became very involved in volunteer work at PGA West. He served on the Residential II board for four years. He was on the Advisory Board of Governors and President of the PGA West Members Association for six years.

Ted was a very romantic, gentle man who cared deeply about others. He was so much fun to be with and had a great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed. Ted is survived by his wife, GeorgeAnn; son, Mark and his partner, Elizabeth Reynoso of New York, N.Y.; sisters, Gertrude Sainey of Fairview Park, Ohio and Nina Holmberg of North Wilkesboro, N.C.; brother, Richard Goellner of North Royalton, Ohio and many nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Shahin Etebar, his neurosurgeon, and the ICU nurses at Eisenhower for their dedication and compassion. We also wish to thank all his wonderful friends at PGA West who helped make his life tho enjoyable. He loved to travel, listen to his vast music collection, play golf and go to the movies, and was happiest hosting dinner parties for his friends. There will be a private memorial service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to a stroke foundation.

Art, son of Vern Arthur Biddle and Alice Kathryn Biddle, was born Oct. 29th, 1939 in Denver, CO. His family moved to Glenwood Springs, CO when he was in the 3rd grade. He graduated from Glenwood Springs High School with Honors, Colorado School of Mines in Metallurgical Engineering in 1961 and the University of Colorado Law School in 1968.

He served as chapter counselor for Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity and was a board member for the fraternity for many years. He served as the Colorado School of Mines Alumni Association President in 2004.

He served in the United States Army 9th Corps of Engineers from 1963 to 1965 stationed primarily in Germany and maintained active friendships with many of his Army buddies and their families throughout the rest of his life during Army reunions throughout the United States.

Art met the love of his life, Carroll Sue Sherman, in 1968 while clerking for a federal judge in the 10th circuit federal court system and began his journey as a dedicated family man. He and Carroll were married in 1969 and had many adventures including raising two sons, David and Mark. Art was very dedicated to his sons and actively shared experiences which included many Y Indian Guides, scouting, camping, golfing, deer, antelope and quail hunting trips, fishing and sporting adventures. Art and Carroll continued their passion for exploring the world on tours of Europe, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, South America and North America over the past 20 years.

Art served his family as a photographer and historian and joyfully documented and shared the memories of many Biddle and Sherman family gatherings and adventures. Art was full of life and spent much of his time helping people. He often would strike up a conversation and found common ground to connect with people with his gentle and genuine spirit. He was an accomplished athlete in his younger years playing high school and collegiate football, track, basketball, baseball, softball, bowling and golf and was a dedicated sports fan loyal to the Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets, Buffs and CSM Orediggers throughout his life.
