    Steve has been a close cousin and friend for decades. We’ve played music in a garage band, moved to Dallas together in 1981, lived together in Dallas and Seattle, and hung out countless times. Steve has been into music since I can remember. Playing the bass, building speakers, recording, and dissecting all musical releases. Since my teenage years to last year (now I’m 50) I’ve been going to his music room and sitting at the proper EQ point on his couch and listening to music. He would say, “You got to sit down and listen to this track”. He would explain all the intricacies of the recording. Never got want the hoopla was all about but it sounded good. I would just nod and smile. That was just Steve.

    Steve always had something interesting to say. Avid reader of magazines and books, he would talk about music, cars, boats, woodworking, photography, etc… Steve was a big Formula 1 race fan. Attended races and watched them on all. And what about personnel cars. He bought a bunch of vintage cars like a Porsche 914, 944, MG Midget, and Jaguar. Loved to fix’em up and drive’em.

    Never a dull moment with Steve.

    In the past few years, Steve and I have not seen or talked to each other much. Lived far apart and just involved with work and relationships of my own. However, Steve has been a major influence in my life. I am deeply saddened by his untimely departure. He will surely be missed.

    After years of hearing stories about Steve through my husband, Jim, I finally got to meet him in Los Vegas last year. Sadly, it was the one and only time we crossed paths.
    What a delightful man- funny, intellectual, passionate and kind.
    My condolences to the family Steve left behind. Donna and Nancy- your willingness to share your children and lives clearly meant so much to him. His love for you all was a source of joy.
    The world has lost a true gentleman.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
